Katarina Mareckova, Robert Wankmueller 14 May 2013, Istanbul Revision of Reporting Guidelines and its Annexes
Introduction Reporting obligations What Why Summary of proposed revisions Key questions Next steps Reporting Guidelines (ECE/EB.AIR/97) for Estimating and Reporting Emission Data under CLRTAP
LRTAP Convention entered into force 51 Parties51 Parties was the first international legally binding instrument to deal with air pollution on regional bases - 8 Protocols UNECE United Nations Economic Commission for Europe is one of 5 regional commissions of UN. It brings together 56 countries (20% world population) and its major aim is to promote pan- European economic integration. - negotiated 5 environmental treaties including CLRTAP and Aarhus Convention56 countries The aim of the Convention is that Parties shall endeavour to limit and, as far as possible, gradually reduce and prevent air pollution including long-range transboundary air pollution by developing policies and strategies to combat the discharge of air pollutants through exchanges of information, consultation, research and monitoring.
1)The 1999 Protocol to Abate Acidification, Eutrophication and Ground-level Ozone; 25 Parties. Entered into force on 17 May (Guidance documents to Protocol adopted by decision 1999/1, Revised guidance document on ammonia). 2) The 1998 Protocol on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs); 33 Parties. Entered into force on 23 October ) The 1998 Protocol on Heavy Metals; 33 Parties. Entered into force on 29 December ) The 1994 Protocol on Further Reduction of Sulphur Emissions; 29 Parties. Entered into force 5 August ) The 1991 Protocol concerning the Control of Emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds or their Transboundary Fluxes; 24 Parties. Entered into force 29 September ) The 1988 Protocol concerning the Control of Nitrogen Oxides or their Transboundary Fluxes; 34 Parties. Entered into force 14 February ) The 1985 Protocol on the Reduction of Sulphur Emissions or their Transboundary Fluxes by at least 30 per cent; 25 Parties. Entered into force 2 September ) The 1984 Protocol on Long-term Financing of the Cooperative Programme for Monitoring and Evaluation of the Long-range Transmission of Air Pollutants in Europe (EMEP); 44 Parties. Entered into force 28 January 1988.
SNAP sectors - CORINAIR system Harmonisation with UNFCCC reporting system = > emissions reported in NFR sectors, GHGs excluded NFR Tables (NFR01, NFR02, NFR09) NOW: NFR14 /GNFR14 80s - National emissions of sulphur, nitrogen oxides, ammonia, NMVOC, carbon oxides and methane (1980 or 1986? onwards and each following year) EMEP WebDab – earliest information identified “reported in 1995” emission-database/ emission-database/ HMs, POPs – first occur in 1996 data (reported in 1998) 80s - National emissions of sulphur, nitrogen oxides, ammonia, NMVOC, carbon oxides and methane (1980 or 1986? onwards and each following year) EMEP WebDab – earliest information identified “reported in 1995” emission-database/ emission-database/ HMs, POPs – first occur in 1996 data (reported in 1998)
Revised protocols: Gothenburg protocol HMs protocol POPs protocol Request from Parties to improve environmental analyses = > gridded emission data are needed in finer resolution (0.1 x 0.1 long/lat) Harmonisation with CRF based on IPCC 2006 Guidelines
Text of reporting Guidelines Annexes Elements : Pollutants Years Sectors (NFR/GNFR) Projections IIR Formats Deadlines ? ….. Data flow - no changes !!!
TSP - out NEW: BC Annual reporting of full time-series ( protocol BY if different ) Emissions before 1990 only when recalculated Projections: SOx, NOx, NMVOC, NH3, PM10, PM2.5, BC 2015, 2020, 2025, 2030, 2050
4 separate Excel files : Annex 1 (Table 1) – Emissions Annex 2 (Table 2) – Projections Annex 5 ( ) Gridded data Annex 6 () LPS 2 Word files Annex 3 IIR template – word Annex 4 Notification form
IIR - minor revisions New chapter on Gridded data and LPS Notification form – minor revisions to be sent to UNECE secretariat, copy to CEIP shell provide information on completeness of data which have been submitted to CEIP (posted at CDR) – do not fill-in numbers (i.e. national totals) New: table on LPS
Main source categories: Harmonized with latest available version of CRF reporting software 1 Energy 2 IPPU (Industry and product use) 3 Agriculture 5 Waste 6 A Other 1 Energy 2 IPPU (Industry and product use) 3 Agriculture 5 Waste 6 A Other Memo items: AviCruis (nat + int) International maritime navigations Multilateral operations Transport (FU) 6 B Other not included in nat. total Natural emissions (Volcanoes, forest fires, other natural) National total National total (FU) Adjustments net total Adjusted NT Grid total
1 Energy 1A1a and 1A1c – split (yes or no??) 1A2fi Stationary combustion in manufacturing industries and construction: Manufacturing of machinery ? –is this one needed? ? Coding and definitions of off-road transport- ▪ E.g. Pipelines compressors -> pipeline transport ? Fugitives from fuels (1B) ▪ Renamed – to be checked by EP 151 NFR14 categories
2 IPPU (merged 2 Industry + 3 Solvent use) Number of new categories in CRF – do we need them all ? ?? i.e. production of methanol, ethylene, ….., carbone black, other CRF does not cover properly production of metals - difficulties with coding Asphalt roofing, Road paving with asphalt – moved under product use 2 D Solvent use: now all under 2 D 151 NFR14 categories
3 Agriculture Manure management - now 3B ▪ All poultry in one category ▪ Pigs - split in 2 (definitions needed) Fertilizer use 3D 1 a, 3D1 b 3D 3 (a,b,c) – the same as in NFR09 NEW: Crops 3D 3d - to be defined – subcategories ? ?? 3F filed burning of agricultural residuals 151 NFR14 categories
5 Waste 5C 1 – waste incineration ▪ NEW: Sewage sludge incineration 5D – waste water handling ▪ Domestic ▪ Industrial 5E Other waste handling 6 A Other (included in national total for entire territory)- specify in IIR 151 NFR14 categories
A: PUBLIC POWER B: INDUSTRY (COMBUSTION & PROCESS TOGETHER) C: OTHER STATIONARY COMBUSTION D: FUGITIVE EMISSIONS FROM FUELS E: SOLVENT AND OTHER PRODUCT USE F: ROAD TRANSPORTATION G: SHIPPING H: AVIATION I: OTHER NON-ROAD TRANSPORT AND MOBILE MACHINERY J: WASTE K: AGRICULTURE / LIVESTOCK L: AGRICULTURE / OTHER M: OTHER 13 GNFR categories plus 4 memo items
Harmonization with CRF – what is feasible ? Do we need definitions for all NFR categories in reporting template ? (like IPCC provides in the Guidebook table 8.2) Who could develop them? NFR14 - categories off road transport – coding and definitions fugitive emissions – names, spilt IPPU categories – coding, do we need them all agriculture - crops? Excel tables or Reporting software
TFEIP experts / EP check the coding, names and existing definitions and provide definitions for new categories Comments to CEIP by the end of the meeting (by 27 May?? ) New version of Annexes by 15 Jun – distribute for comments to “working group” and EMEP centers Finalization of Annexes in July and submitting to UNECE secretariat for EMEP SB (Sept ) Adopted during EB meeting in Dec 2013 Published Q Link with EMEP/EEA inventory Guidebook 2014 ? and update software's as needed (?? ) To be used 2015 onwards
NEW Reporting deadlines: 1 st February – emissions Resubmission in 2 weeks – 15 February Gridded data, LPS, projections – 15 st Feb IIR - 1 th March
