Dear EEA Forum users,
EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission inventory guidebook 2016, 1.A.4 Non road mobile machinery 2016, Table 3-2 'Tier 2 emission factors for off-road machinery', notes that emission factors for LPG are not available at Tier 2 technology level and refers to Tier 1 emission factors, in this case, for all technology levels.
LPG emission factors for Tier 1 are shown in Table 3-1. E.g. 1.A.2.g.vii, 1.A.4.a.ii, 1.A.4.b.ii and 1.A.4.c.ii: NOx emission factor = 61093 g/tonnes fuel.
This value is higher than any NOx emission factor, at any technology level, for diesel fuel listed on Table 3-2 for NFR sectors 1.A.2.g.vii and 1.A.4.a.ii. E.g. 1991-Stage I NOx EF = 43552 g/tonnes fuel.
As one of the known benefits of LPG vs. diesel is a potential reduction of NOx emissions, is there any explanation to these differences?
Many thanks in advance for your help.

We are still waiting for an answer and we will inform you as soon as we know more.
Sorry about the waiting time.

After a review process NOx emission factor for both Tier 1 and Tier 3 for the LPG fuel have been updated. New values could be found at the EMEP/EEA Emission Inventory Guidebook 2016 version here:[…]/emep-eea-guidebook-2016

Kind regards
