Project: Emissions of volatile organic compounds in Flanders : improvement of the inventory system and of the relation to tropospheric ozone creation.

project duration
01-SEP-98 – 31-MAR-00
Voltatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) contribute to tropospheric ozone creation. In a first part of the proposal, an improvement of the current inventory system will be investigated. This improvement will contribute to assess the contribution of emission reduction measures. A second part will deal with elements which will contribute to a better relationship between the emissions of VOCs and the tropospheric ozone creation. The nature of the VOCs, which is related to the sector by which they are emitted, will be studied. Next, the time- and place-dependancy of the emissions of the VOCs in relation to the ozone creation will be investigated.
