Comparison of Emission Estimation Methods used in Pollutant Release and Transfer Registers and Emission Scenario Documents: Case Study of Pulp and Paper and Textile Sectors, OECD Series on Testing and Assessment, No. 52

Author: OECD
Organization: OECD
Language:  English
Year published: 2006

The purpose of this document is to identify the similarities and differences between the emission estimation methods used in PRTRs and Emission Scenario Documents (ESDs). Although both ESDs and PRTRs are intended to deal with emissions from the same sources, different methods of analysis may be used. The applicability of PRTR methods to the risk assessments is also evaluated. The study is focused on two sectors: pulp and paper manufacture, and textile wet processing.
