Ministry of Environment and Physical Planning Air Emissions Vilarova Marijonka, MSci Meeting of NFP – Western Balkan Countries Skopje, April 2005
Background – Legal Framework Approximation of the air legislation with the EU one The Draft Law on Environment is in an adoption phase Law on Ambient Air Quality harmonized with Framework Directive 96/62/EC Under CADRS 2004, drafting of secondary legislation on air emissions has been planned, concerning: Stationary sources Mobile sources Products control In the process of secondary legislation on air emissions drafting, Directives 99/13/EC, 96/61/EC, 2001/80/EC,94/67/EC, etc., will be transposed.
Conventions and Protocols Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution and EMEP Protocol (Cooperative Programme for Monitoring of Air Pollutants in Europe) have been ratified Protocols listed below are in ratification procedure 1985 Reduction of Sulphur Emissions or their Transboundary Fluxes by at least 30 per cent; 1988 Control of Nitrogen Oxides or their Transboundary Fluxes; 1991 Control of Emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds or their Transboundary Fluxes; 1994 Further Reduction of Sulphur Emissions; 1998 Heavy Metals; 1998 Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs); and 1999 Abate Acidification, Eutrophication and Ground-level Ozone
Air Emissions Monitoring Monitoring of air emissions from stationary and mobile sources, Emission monitoring data of individual major companies establish basis for location of polluted areas in the country Identification of air polluters and pollution in the Republic of Macedonia through development of Cadastre of air polluters and pollutants at national level Cadastre of air polluters and pollutants for the City of Skopje is completed, and National Cadastre will be finalized by the end of 2005.
Establishment of database and data management Database has been established, using data from the Cadastre for the City of Skopje Data from the National Cadastre will be used to establish database on polluters releasing air pollutants, at national level Preparation of programmes and plans for air pollution, i.e. pollutants emission reduction Setting of priorities among measures intended to improve the quality of air Air Emissions Monitoring
CORINAR Programme Development Introduction of CORINAIR (CORe INventory of AIR emissions). CORINAIR has not been introduced in our country yet, as compatible methodology for air pollution inventory at EU level CORINAIR Programme is recommended for identification of the quantity of air pollutants emission, as well as the nomenclature under SNAP (Selected Nomenclature of Air Pollution) based on it At present, we have emission data on around 220 polluters at national level Based on the data available and data from the Statistical Yearbook, upon recommendation of ETC-ACC, distribution by SNAP sectors has been made

Future activities related to CORINAIR Programme Development Through the assistance from CARDS Regional Programme 2002, and using data from the Cadastre and Statistical Yearbook, air polluters and pollutants will be distributed by SNAP Application of CORINAIR based softwares has been envisaged, COLLECER for collection and calculation of relevant emission data REPORTER- used in preparation of national annual reports on emissions in relation to the requirements under EMEP and IPCC COPERT-3, for calculation of traffic emissions Application of simulation models and air pollution forecast
Reporting Requested informationFor the periodYear of reportingManner of reporting Air Emissions AE-1: CLRTAP data 1999, 2000, 2001, , 2002, 2003, , CDR (2004) AE-1b: NEC data AE-2: UNFCCC data AE-2b: EU GHG data Reporting in the area of air emissions towards ETC-ACC, based on the requirements of CLRTAP and EMEP Protocol, is carried out continuously since 1998 In this context, data/information on annual emissions of pollutants SO 2, nitrogen oxides, CO and dust is reported, in the format prescribed by EMEP.
Reporting With regard to other requirements under the table, such as reporting to UNFCCC, the reporting will start on 2003 – the year when the First National Communication on Climate Change and GHG Inventory was prepared The scheme of data collection and reporting for the purpose of their use for emission amounts reduction and air quality improvement, is presented on the next slide
