Alignment of the EU ETS 1 with the new EU climate target for 2030 and reform of the Market Stability Reserve (MSR 1)


With the 'Fit for 55' package, the EU's energy and climate policy instruments were aligned with the new climate target for 2030 (to reduce emissions by 55 % compared to 1990). One main feature of the Fit for 55 package is the strengthening of the European Emissions Trading System (EU ETS). This factsheet outlines the key aspects for the existing European Emissions Trading System for stationary ins...read more

Creation of a harmonized land cover map as an example for the entire region of the Geneva Air Pollution Convention


A new map product for calculating the critical loads for eutrophication and acidification of terrestrial ecosystems and for modelling air quality was created in this project. The spatial extent of the map covers a large number of countries in Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia. The results of this project are map products representing the land cover in 217 EUNIS classes and 13 RCG classes. In a...read more

Dialogues on the waste prevention programme II


The federal government's first waste prevention program (WPP) with the participation of the federal states was passed in 2013 and continued in 2021. The WPP was accompanied by a dialogue process to strengthen communication and networking between those involved in the implementation process. For specific fields of action, suitable instruments for reducing barriers were developed and impulses were g...read more

Monitoring, Reporting and Verification in a Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism

Which rules and standards for calculating and certifying product-related emissions?


Die EU hat ein Gesetz zur Einführung eines Grenzausgleichsmechanismus erlassen. Dieses Gesetz wirft einige Fragen hinsichtlich der praktischen und rechtlichen Durchführbarkeit auf, einschließlich möglicher rechtlicher Herausforderungen im Hinblick auf das internationale Handelsrecht. Ein wichtiger Aspekt des CBAM sind effektive Vorgaben für die Überwachung und Berichterstattung (MRV) von Emissione...read more

Overview of hazardous substances potentially emitted from offshore industries to the marine environment - Part 2: Emissions from offshore oil and gas industry


The report provides an overview of potential inputs of hazardous substances from the offshore oil and gas industry into the North Sea. Emissions from drilling fluids, cuttings piles, accidental spills, produced water and corrosion protection materials were investigated. The individual substances contained were evaluated according to their persistence, bioaccumulation and toxicity and according to...read more

Application of nonlinear hierarchical models to the kinetic evaluation of chemical degradation data

Guidance for the use of an R markdown template file


In this report, nonlinear hierarchical models and their use for the kinetic evaluation of chemical degradation data are presented. These models allow for a joint evaluation of multiple data sets, directly resulting in overall degradation parameters and their statistical distribution. Common problems occurring in the separate kinetic evaluation of each dataset with subsequent amalgamation of the ki...read more

Update of methane emission factors for natural gas supply

Comparison of previous greenhouse gas reporting methods with new findings from emission measurements in Germany


The European Green Deal, the Methane Pledge based on the United Nations Climate Change Conference in November 2021, the German Climate Protection Act, and other national and international efforts intend to reduce global methane emissions. Against this background, it is necessary to reflect the efforts of industry and politics in the national inventories. Extensive measurement programs of transmiss...read more
