Last updated on 24 Jan 2013 17:05 by Kevin Hausmann

Main drivers

Between 1990 and 2010 the total TSP emissions were dropped by 85.6%, due to stricter regulations of the Old West Germany that applied to the New German Länder after the German Reunification and realized a change-over from solid to gaseous and liquid fuel, as well as advancements in filter technologies of combustion plants and industrial processes. The Main Drivers for TSP emissions are Fuel Combustion (NFR 1.A) with 66% of total 1990 emissions and a 91% reduction between 1990-2010 and as a sum the Industrial Processes (NFR 2) with 23.5% of total 1990 emissions and a 75% reduction between 1990-2010.
