Danish emission inventories for stationary combustion plants: Inventories until 2015

Publikation: Bog/antologi/afhandling/rapportRapportRådgivningpeer review


Emission inventories for stationary combustion plants are presented and the
methodologies and assumptions used for the inventories are described. The
pollutants considered are SO2, NOx, NMVOC, CH4, CO, CO2, N2O, NH3, particulate matter, black carbon, heavy metals, PCDD/F, HCB, PCBs and PAH. The CO2 emission from stationary combustion was 51.2 % lower in 2015 than in 1990 and the total greenhouse gas emission was 50.5 % lower than in 1990. However, fluctuations in the emission level for CO2 are large as a result of electricity import/export. A considerable decrease of the SO2, NOx and heavy metal emissions is mainly a result of decreased emissions from large power plants and waste incineration plants. The combustion of wood in residential plants has increased considerably in 1990-2007 resulting in increased emission of PAH, particulate matter and black carbon. The emissions have decreased after 2007 due to installation of modern stoves and boilers. The PCDD/F emission decreased since 1990 due to flue gas cleaning on waste incineration plants.
