Project: Metrology to underpin future regulation of industrial emissions

The cost of air pollution from the 10,000 largest polluting facilities in Europe is around 150 billion € each year and the European Climate Change Programme is targeting an 80-95 % reduction in pollution and greenhouse gases by 2050. Current evidence shows that Europe is not on track to meet this target and means that more stringent emission limits are needed, along with new measurements to help with monitoring and enforcement. This project will develop measurement and monitoring technologies, methodologies and guidance to support industry, regulators and standardisation committees. Issues such as traceable stack emission measurements and the challenges of lower emission limit values will be addressed. The results will remove many of the current obstacles in the way of emissions reporting and help control emissions within the framework of tighter regulation.
