Mobiele werktuigen en stationaire bronnen worden hoofdzakelijk door dieselmotoren aangedreven en dragen daardoor bij aan opwarming van de aarde, luchtvervuiling en stikstofdepositie. Over het algemeen is maar heel weinig bekend over de praktijkuitstoot van mobiele werktuigen en stationaire bronnen op bijvoorbeeld bouwplaatsen. Daarnaast is er...

In opdracht van het Ministerie van Infrastructuur en Waterstaat voert TNO het emissiemeetprogramma voor vrachtwagens en bussen uit. In dit programma meet en monitort TNO, op regelmatige basis, de uitlaatgasemissies van deze voertuigen om te onderzoeken hoe schoon ze in de praktijk zijn en wordt onderzocht via een zogenaamde screening of...

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...

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 ...

Pollutant emissions from the passenger car fleet in Europe can not only be reduced by the influx of clean new vehicles, but also by reducing the emission levels of existing vehicles. Since for a number of reasons the average fleet emissions do not decrease as fast as envisaged by policy makers, attempting to reduce the emissions from the present...

Road transport plays a significant role in climate change and it contributes to poor air quality, especially in densely populated areas. This is a global problem, which also requires regional solutions. Electrification of vehicles is encouraged by the European Commission for this reason. Many countries and regions, like Flanders investigate the...

Exhaust emissions of maritime vessels are becoming increasingly important due to their contribution to air pollutant concentration on land, especially in port areas. For this reason, Emission Control Areas (ECA) were introduced in Europe to reduce SOx emissions. This has been expanded to more stringent NOx regulations for new vessels in 2021....

This study aims at estimating errors to be accounted for in atmospheric inversions of methane (CH4) emissions at the European scale. Four types of errors are estimated in the concentration space over the model domain and at selected measurement sites. Furthermore, errors in emission inventories are estimated at country and source sector scales....

In this work, we investigate the ability of a data assimilation technique and space-borne observations to quantify and monitor changes in nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions over North-Western Greece for the summers of 2018 and 2019. In this region, four lignite-burning power plants are located. The data assimilation technique, based on the Ensemble...

To lower CO2 emissions, policy makers want to integrate as much variable renewable energy (VRE) as possible into power systems. This has been translated into targets for VRE as a share of total electricity generation and policies that aim to maximize the use of electricity available from VRE sources. However, in this paper we demonstrate that it...

After a 13,000-hour test campaign with aqueous 30 wt% MEA (2-aminoethanol) solvent at the CO2 capture pilot plant at Niederaussem, another long-term test was carried out as part of the ALING-CCUS project. This test ran for more than 12,275 hours with aqueous AMP/PZ (2-Amino-2-methyl-1-propanol/piperazine) solvent, named CESAR1 (3.0 molar AMP (~...

To lower pollution, it became imperative to integrate as much renewable energies as possible in power systems. This has been translated into forcing the maximum production of variable renewable energy (VRE) ---wind and solar--- into power systems operation. The increasing operational costs to maximize the VRE output became the price to pay in...

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...
