MalteG Dear EAA Team

I am working on a research project on the environmental impact of mining in Europe. I therefore used the PRTR register to find the pollutant emissions from the NACE section B (Mining and Quarrying).

Now I notice a relatively strong discrepancy between the PRTR data and the data provided by eurostat (
https://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/de/data/database). Using the example of NOX emissions in 2015, according to PRTR (ReportingYear 2015; Excluding Norway, Switzerland, Serbia and Iceland, NACE activities 05.10 - 09.90), there has been an output of 53,544 tons of NOX. According to the eurostat database (same countries, NACE section "Mining and quarrying") the output was 122,821 tons of NOX.
These deviations seem to occur for other pollutant parameters as well.

Now the question to the experts: Why do the data deviate by the relatively large factor of more than 2? Is this discrepancy known? And finally, which datasource is more reliable in terms of the possibility to relate pollutant outputs to certain industrial sectors and shall be used by scientists/decision makers etc.?

Looking forward to your reply. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Best regards
Malte

jordi Dear Forum,

I have a question reffered to the passenger cars database (Monitoring of CO2 emissions from passenger cars
https://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/co2-cars-emission-10):
1- What does "AA-IVA" mean in the variable "manufacturer harmonised"? Same for "AA-NSS". Are these missing values? and, if they are, can they be considered random or this missings have some particularity in common?
2- What does the variable "Fuel mode" means? possible values are B, E, F, M (and NA which I undersand as missing value)
Thanks,
Jordi
PS. I am sorry I loss the previous discussion on this same topic (identifying the car model)

constantinos2013 Good morning. My name is Koutelidakis Konstantinos and I am a postgraduate student at the Hellenic Open University. In my diploma thesis, I study the participation of Greek citizens in recycling (https://docs.google.com/[…]/viewform).
In addition to developing the questionnaire, the diploma thesis will include 1 multi-criteria study for which, I would like your help. So I would ask you for any of the criteria you have data, to fill in the corresponding cell, in order to find out what is the best economic policy for increasing recycling in Greece.

Thank you very much
Yours sincerely
Koudelidakis Konstantinos
