233. Emission inventory for the Rhine catchment 2010

The relevant substances to consider in the international river basin district Rhine for the programme “<link _blank>Rhine 2020” and the<link _blank> 2nd Management Plan Rhine 2015 are set. For these substances, the emission inventory at hand relating to the year 2010 has been carried out. Due to the availability of quantitative data for point and diffuse sources, a more in-depth consideration of the discharge pathways was only possible for total N and metals.

This inventory also includes a comparison with previous inventories, in particular that of the emissions of priority substances 2000 (<link file:2918 _blank>ICPR report 134) which represents the final report for the emissions of priority substances within the “Rhine Action Programme”.
