Small-scale combustion installations
Meetings and events
A study has
been launched by DG ENV on the " Cost and environmental
effectiveness of reducing air pollution for small-scale combustion
installations": the objective of this assignment is to
assist the European Commission to identify measures or packages
of measures and emerging technologies allowing emission reduction
from the small-scale combustion installations. Specifically,
the environmental effectiveness and associated costs need
to be assessed and reported in such a manner that the results
can be directly used with the RAINS model.
The following tasks will be undertaken by the contractor:
- An analysis of the existing inventories of emissions
originating from the SCIs.
- An inventory of existing measures allowing reducing
emissions from SCIs including an evaluation of those
- An inventory of new and emerging technologies allowing
the reduction of emissions from SCIs, including information
on costs, emission reduction potential, to be inserted in
the RAINS databases.
- Proposals of scenarios to be tested up to 2020 with the
objective of testing different options in the RAINS model
and possible recommendations to be considered in the
thematic strategy on air pollution.
