ABSTRACT

The climate and environmental interests are regulated by huge amount of legislative rules. Each country have to make national inventory of GHG and air pollutants, however the guidelines for calculations are developed by different organizations: EMEP/EEA for air pollutant emission inventory guide and IPCC for national greenhouse gas inventory. Also the state can develop own methodology to calculate emissions based on national research. This often leads to inconsistency of calculation results. The aim of this study is to describe principles of calculation tool designed for GHG and air pollutants emissions inventory by using free statistical software possibilities to reach consistent reporting of both GHG and air pollutants emissions.
The tool for national inventory of GHG and air pollutants emissions were build with joint active data input, separate EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission and IPCC GHG calculation algorithms and possibility to interchange of sub-results, also several data output possibilities were generated for both inventories to reach requirements of quality control and assurance procedures. The developed tool show significantly higher accuracy for inventory outcomes due to joint active data input and interchange of sub-results.
