On the CH4 and N2O emission inventory compiled by EDGAR and improved with the EPRTR data for the INGOS project
Abstract: 

This report documents the EDGAR INGOS emission inventory for CH4 and N2O, as publicly made available on: http://edgar.jrc.ec.europa.eu/ingos/index.php?SECURE=123. The EDGAR INGOS CH4 and N2O emission inventory provides bottom?up estimates of global anthropogenic CH4 and N2O emissions for the period 2000?2010. The EDGAR InGOS product is an update of the EDGARv4.2FT2010 inventory, taking into account emissions reported as point sources by facilities under the European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (EPRTR) for (1) power plants (N2O), (2) oil refineries (CH4 and N2O), (3) coal mining (CH4), (4) production of oil and gas (CH4), (5) chemicals production (inorganic, nitro?fertilizers and other bulk chemicals) (N2O), industrial process and product use (N2O), (6) solid waste ? landfills (CH4), (7) industrial wastewater treatment (CH4 and N2O). In a first step gridmaps have been improved for the European region taking into account the geospatial data of the E?PRTR database. In addition, for the last 4 years an option is given to select inventories solely based on officially reported emission data (for the categories covered by E?PRTR), gapfilled with EDGARv4.2FT2010 for non?reporting countries.
