Emissions: Danish emissions to the air are now on the Internet
The National Environmental Research Institute (NERI) now publishes Danish emission inventories on its website, which can be accessed at address: http://www.dmu.dk/1_english/default.asp'>http://www.dmu.dk/1_english/default.asp
The information is based on the data that NERI collates within the framework of the European CORINAIR (COordination of INformation on AIR emissions) air emission inventory system. The Danish CORINAIR database serves as the basis for official reports to international conventions.
The national inventory is mainly prepared following CORINAIR guidelines. Parts of the inventory have been elaborated in order to better reflect specific national conditions. The emissions are categorized as prescribed in the UNECE Reporting Guidelines.
This is the first Danish website specifically for emission data. NERI receives daily enquiries from people interested in the Danish emissions data and the Institute has therefore felt a considerable need to make the data more easily accessible - in step with the Aarhus Convention's requirements on public access to environmental data.
Among other things the website contains easily understood presentations of emissions data in the form of descriptions and graphs/figures for the individual substances. Total emissions data is provided for heavy metals, dioxins and PAH, while time series and source apportionment are provided for the most important components (SO2, NOx, CO2, etc.). In addition, there is a list of relevant NERI publications - for example, it is possible to print out Denmark's latest official report to the Climate Convention.
