38th Session WGSRItem 3, Review of the 1998 protocol on heavy metalsJean-Paul Hettelingh (CCE)

Critical loads of heavy metals and their exceedances

of Cd, Pb, Hg and tentatively of Cr, Ni, Cu, Zn, As and Se

in Europe

In collaboration with:

TNO (emissions),

EMEP/MSC-E (dispersion)

Alterra (CL-other metals)

Coordination Centre for Effects (CL-priority metals and exceedances )

38th Session of the Working Group on Strategies and Review, Item 3, Review of the 1998 protocol on heavy metals

critical loads of cd pb and hg and their exceedances
Critical loads of Cd, Pb and Hg and their exceedances
  • Details in: CCE Status Report 2005, updated in 2006 by BG, CY, IT, NL, UA
  • Elaborated in the TFHM Sufficiency and Effectiveness Report
  • In press in reviewed scientific journal: Slootweg J, Hettelingh J-P, Posch M, Schütze G, Spranger T, De Vries W, Reinds GJ, Van ’t Zelfde M, Dutchak S, Ilyin I, European critical loads of cadmium, lead and mercury and their exceedances,Water, Air and Soil Pollution Forum .
  • Summary in: ECE/EB.AIR/WG.1/2006/10, adopted at 25th WGE session

What do we want to protect:

  • Endpoints with respect to:
    • 1 Human health (drinking water)
    • 2 Human health (food quality)
    • 3 Ecotox. Effects on terrestrial ecosystems
    • 4 Ecotox. Effects on aquatic ecosystems
    • 5 Human health (Hg in fish)
  • Exceedance in 2000 now use depositions computed by MSC-E based on emissions adjusted by TNO.
  • Exceedance in 2020 based on three scenarios; CLE, FI and FIAM

conclusions and recommendations regarding cd hg and pb
Conclusions and recommendationsregarding Cd, Hg and Pb
  • Conclusions also reflected in the TFHM Sufficiency en Effectiveness report.
  • Lead (Pb) and mercury (Hg) deposition significantly exceed critical loads.
  • The health risk is stressed in the unedited TFH-draft 2006 report (Health risks of heavy metals from LRTP air pollution)
  • Cadmium deposition does not cause widespread exceedance
  • However, Cd exposure (not only from LRTAP) may lead to damage to critical organs while Cd is suggested to still be accumulating in the top-soil of arable land (see TFH draft 2006).
  • Current critical load data of Cd, Pb and Hg can be applied in chain-model (emission, deposition, exceedance) assessments of policy scenarios.
  • Uncertainty, in particularly of emission data, requires further attention.
  • Note that model and data uncertainty does not markedly vary between scenarios.

conclusions
Conclusions
  • No widespread exceedance in Europe of critical loads of Cr,Ni,Cu,Zn,As, Se in 2000; exceedance of Zn and Selenicum cover < 3% of the European ecosystem area.
  • In 2020, this exceedance is reduced to about ≤ 1%
  • In line with… “Presently, available information indicates that none of these other metals achieve high enough concentrations as a result of long-range atmospheric transport and deposition to cause adverse effects on wildlife and human health”…(Sufficiency and Effectiveness Report, A2).
  • Therefore, the focus on priority heavy metals is justified from an effect-based perspective.
