Development of scientific-methodological baselines for inventory improvement, realising recommendations of the international inventory reviews in 2016 and 2017

The aim of the project is the improvement of the German emission inventories. This concerns the improvement of the uncertainties of parts of the inventory (specifically the uncertainties for the emission factors of the NEC pollutants SO2, NOX, NH3, NMVOC, PM10 and PM2.5 as well as for the heavy metals As, Cd, Cu, Hg, Pb and Zn) , the possible improvement of the reporting of emissions from fires of vehicles and buildings, the examination of possible improvements of the reporting of NMVOC emissions from chemical plants as well as the development of a calculation routine for black carbon emissions.
