The maritime sector is facing a major challenge. Whilst a globally growing economy leads to greater demand for the transport of goods, the goals from the Paris Climate Agreement and the subsequent agreement of the IMO requires a 50% reduction of CO2-emissions from maritime transport by 2050 compared to the level of 2008. Several stakeholders ...

The unprecedented order, in modern peaceful times, for a near-total lockdown of the Greek population as a means of protection against severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, commonly known as COVID-19, has generated unintentional positive side-effects with respect to the country’s air quality levels. Sentinel-5 Precursor/Tropospheric...

We quantify the reductions in primary emissions due to the COVID-19 lockdowns in Europe. Our estimates are provided in the form of a dataset of reduction factors varying per country and day that will allow the modelling and identification of the associated impacts upon air quality. The country- and daily-resolved reduction factors are provided...

Mitigation of CO2 emissions in the industrial sector is one of the main climate challenges for the coming decades. This work, carried out within the STEPWISE H2020 project, performs a preliminary techno-economic assessment of the Sorption Enhanced Water Gas Shift (SEWGS) technology when integrated into the iron and steel plant to mitigate CO2...

We present a modelling framework for fossil fuel CO2 emissions in an urban environment, which allows constraints from emission inventories to be combined with atmospheric observations of CO2 and its co-emitted species CO, NOx , and SO2. Rather than a static assignment of average emission rates to each unit area of the urban domain, the fossil...

Natural sea-salt aerosols, when interacting with anthropogenic emissions, can enhance the formation of particulate nitrate. This enhancement has been suggested to increase the direct radiative forcing of nitrate, called the "massenhancement effect". Through a size-resolved dynamic mass transfer modeling approach, we show that interactions with...

This study presents the first investigation of the methane (CH4) emissions of a large festival. Munich Oktoberfest, the world’s largest folk festival, is a potential source of CH4 as a large amount of natural gas for cooking and heating is used. In 2018 we measured the CH4 emissions of Oktoberfest using in situ measurements combined with a...

Onze weg naar realisatie van de Parijse klimaatakkoorden is nog lang. Vloeibare en gasvormige energiedragers blijven nodig als brandstof in bepaalde zware toepassingen. Hierbij kan worden gedacht aan de luchtvaart en scheepvaart, wegverkeer met zware, energie-intensieve en veeleisende inzetpatronen. Toepassing van waterstof, als brandstof, in...

We still have a long way to go to realise the Paris Climate Agreements. Liquid and gaseous energy carriers will continue to be needed as fuels in certain heavy-duty applications. Think, for example, of aviation and shipping, road traffic with heavy, energyintensive and demanding patterns of deployment. The use of hydrogen, as a fuel, in internal...

An almost continuous 13,000 h long-term testing under real operating conditions was conducted at the post combustion capture pilot plant in the Niederaussem lignite-fired power plant, with a 30 wt% aqueous monoethanolamine (MEA) solvent solution. The capture plant at Niederaussem shows lower solvent consumption and emissions in comparison to...

Het belangrijkste doel van voertuigemissiemetingen zoals die voor het Ministerie van Infrastructuur en Waterstaat worden uitgevoerd, is het geven van informatie over de emissies van voertuigen op de weg en hoe deze emissies van invloed zijn op de luchtkwaliteit, de natuur en de gezondheid van de burgers. De vastgestelde gemiddelde emissies op de...

In 2018 is de totale uitstoot van broeikasgassen in Nederland met 2,7 procent gedaald ten opzichte van 2017. Deze daling komt vooral doordat er minder kolen zijn gebruikt om elektriciteit te produceren. De totale uitstoot van broeikasgassen naar de lucht wordt uitgedrukt in CO2-equivalenten en bedroeg in 2018 188,2 miljard kilogram. Het jaar...

De uitstoot van ammoniak in Nederland is in 2018 met 0,6 kiloton is afgenomen ten opzichte van 2017. Dit komt vooral door ontwikkelingen in de landbouw, waar minder runderen worden gehouden en er steeds meer varkensstallen komen die minder ammoniak uitstoten. Toch ligt de uitstoot van ammoniak in 2018 met 129,3 kiloton boven het maximum van 128...

The volume of the e-commerce segment of economy is growing fast in the Netherlands and overall in the world. E-commerce brings the convenience of shopping to the consumers’ homes, however, it is also characterised by an increase of traffic nuisance and CO2 emissions from the extra traffic in last mile parcel delivery networks. One of the...

Using new satellite observations and atmospheric inverse modeling, we report methane emissions from the Permian Basin, which is among the world's most prolific oil-producing regions and accounts for >30% of total U.S. oil production. Based on satellite measurements from May 2018 to March 2019, Permian methane emissions from oil and natural gas...

Policies implemented in Europe since the 1970s to improve the air quality have resulted in decreases in emissions in many countries with corresponding reductions in concentrations of sulphur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and particulate matter (PM). We report here how much the air quality and associated health effects in the Netherlands...

Coal is the dominant emitter of Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) in some countries, comprising 92% of total emissions in China. Mitigation of these emissions can be driven by a number of factors, such as energy-efficiency improvements, installation of scrubbers, and use of renewable energy. This study evaluates the historical reduction of overall SO2...

Quantification of greenhouse gas emissions is receiving a lot of attention because of its relevance for climate mitigation. Complementary to official reported bottomup emission inventories, quantification can be done with an inverse modelling framework, combining atmospheric transport models, prior gridded emission inventories and a network of...
