Emissions inventories and options for control

Publication Date Jan 1, 1995

Abstract

Publisher Summary This chapter focuses on the “Emission Inventories and Option for Control,” whose main objectives were to provide information for prioritizing greenhouse-gas emissions research in The Netherlands, provide input data for global models (later shifted to the EDGAR-project), and support national and international policy development. The emphasis of the project was on non-CO 2 greenhouse gases, notably methane (CH 4 ) and nitrous oxide (N 2 O). While state-of-the-art information from international research were used and analyzed, the focus of the project was on the Dutch emissions and their causes. Information was drawn from literature research, discussions with national and international experts, and experimental information from National Research Programme (NRP) and other projects. This project facilitated the development of the national capabilities to comply with the requirement of the Framework Convention on Climate Change that countries should regularly report about their emissions of greenhouse gases and national policies. The methodologies developed and applied in the project, would be used for future National Environmental Outlooks and national communications to comply with the requirements of the Convention. The project laid out the special circumstances that govern the emissions of greenhouse-gas emissions in The Netherlands, which has high intensity of population and economic activities including intensive agriculture, industry, transport and where the vast majority of emissions are of anthropogenic o...
