Emissions of Greenhouse gases in The Netherlands

Publication Date Jun 1, 1996

Abstract

Abstract The emission inventory in the Netherlands comprises the registration, analysis and localization of emission data of both industrial and non-industrial sources. The objective of the emission inventory is to monitor the emissions from sources of air and water pollution on a national scale. This information is used to evaluate the progress of environmental policy and to provide national and international bodies with the official data on emissions within the country. A more detailed description of the objectives and structure of the emission inventory is given. The emission inventory takes place in cycles of one year. The paper describes the most relevant results of the Dutch emission inventory for the year 1992 carried out in 1993 and 1994. In that cycle the emissions in 1992 to air and water from about 800 major companies were registered. These 800 companies are the most important contributors to the total industrial emissions in the Netherlands. The emissions from the smaller companies and from diffuse non-industrial sources are stored in the collective emission inventory system. Both systems are described in more detail. From the 900 registered substances about 60 were selected for presentation and discussion in the report on the emission inventory for the year 1992. Among them are the so-called ‘priority’ compounds. These are compounds the Dutch environmental policy is primarily aimed at. Furthermore the results of the analysis of emission data are presented with respect to both the environmental theme of climate c...
