Emissions Inventory in Cyprus

  • “Development of an emission inventory including formation of a database for atmospheric pollutant emissions and a software for simulation and forecast of air quality in Cyprus”

  • Objectives:

    • Collection of activity data from all emission-generating sources

    • Development of an emissions database based on the methodology of the EMEP/EEA Emission Inventory Guidebook

    • Development of a GIS application for the presentation of activity data and emissions on digital maps

    • Development of a web-based application for the evaluation and management of air quality

Data sources
Data Sources

  • Annual reports (Condition under the Air Emission Permit)

  • National data offices (e.g. Statistical Service) and Government Departments

  • Questionnaires sent to industries

  • Measurements conducted external team

    • road traffic counts

    • PM concentrations at quarries

  • Older data from similar measurements available

  • Other research projects, literature

Road traffic data
Road traffic data

  • More than 80 24-hour measurements of traffic load, traffic composition and average speed at urban, rural and highway roads were carried out.

  • Measurements conducted at various days of the week, covering both weekdays and weekends and also winter and summer conditions.

  • Older data from traffic measurements were also used (2006 and 2007 traffic census) conducted by the Public Works Department.

Pm measurements at quarries
PM measurements at quarries

  • PM measurements (TSP and PM10) conducted at 7 quarries

  • For each quarry, 35 24-hour measurements were conducted by means of 4 High Volume Samplers

  • Meteorological data and quarry activity also recorded

  • Data used for producing emission factors

Software for ei
Software for EI

  • Input all necessary data (emission factors and activity data)

  • Emission estimation per source

  • View all data in several forms or reports

  • Execute the emission inventory

  • Save all these data in a simple database

Gis application
GIS application

  • Application based on open-source code

  • Presentation of data on digital maps

  • Dynamic content, map creation on user demand

  • Linked to Air Quality Management System

Total annual pm 10 emissions
Total annual PM10 emissions

Total annual NOx emissions

  • Emissions from all sources

  • Distribution as point, linear and area sources

  • 1 x 1 km resolution

Spatial and temporal resolution of emissions

  • The main contributors to air pollution in Cyprus is electricity production, cement production and road transport.

  • Continuous emission reduction from road transport sector due to the technological improvement and the fleet renewal.

  • Emission reduction in electricity production due to the import and use of LNG as the main fuel from 2014.

  • Merging of the two cement industries by the end of 2010 with new and environmental friendly cement production technology.

  • With out any additional measures, continuous increasing of emission until 2013 (LNG as a main fuel in power sector).
