DESCRIPTION

This project is an update and extension of the emission inventory building heating (including agriculture and horticulture) envisaged in Flanders. On the one hand the calculation of the emissions will be made on a tier-2 level, where the emission factor does not depend solely on the fuel, but also on the type and age of the plant. On the other hand the energy consumption and emissions of air pollutants will be in accordance with the best possible way to be spread geographically by municipality and per km2. This, for the residential, commercial, and agricultural and horticultural sector using specific map layers and algorithms per fuel type.
