WonderfulWorld Dear EEA, I have tried to download the EEA Report No 5/2018 from the webpage https://www.eea.europa.eu/p[…]enhouse-gas-inventory-2018. It is a large file, and despite having used different browsers, I get a message (usually around the 20MB mark) that the pdf file is corrupted. Would you be able to check if this is the case and if so provide an uncorrupted version? Thanks.

viiincent Dear EEA,

can you provide me with some details about the calculation of CO2 emission by aircraft here:

Let's say that 285g of CO2 means consuming 90 g of fuel per km and pax.
At 88 pax that's 7962 g per km.
At the average speed between turboprop and jet, about 320 kts, that is roughly 600 km/h, it would mean the fuel consumption is 4.8 tons per hour?
That is a fuel consumption of a large jet for 300+ people, not 88...
Both Boeing and Airbus advertise their large aircraft are capable of flying for less than 4liters of kerosene per pax and 100km. (That is, 4*810/100 = 32.4g of fuel per pax and km)
Can you please clarify the methodology of your calculations?

Thank you,

lubresseleers Als heel gewone maar milieubewuste Europeaan neem ik contact op met EEA, om een mij fel storend en toch wel realistisch milieuverontreinigende toestand aan te klagen. En gemakkelijk op te lossen door een europese verordening tot verbod ervan.
Het betreft de alsmaar meer voorkomende plastic klevertjes op fruit. Het ‘Zespri’klevertje op een kiwi is hiervan het standaardvoorbeeld.
Op zich heeft zo’n klevertje geen enkel nut (niet informatief, geen enkel gebruiksnut). Bij bewust sorteren van afval, komen de schillen met klever in de groene bak of op de composthoop en blijft het klevertje als onafbreekbare substantie in de compostmassa achter.
Voor allen een zeer herkenbare toestand. Een verbod van gebruik (door een europese verordening) van zulke klevertjes op fruit, kan dit gemakkelijk oplossen.
Ik heb volledig geen zicht op de procedures tot het opstellen van zulk een verordening. Dit contact met EEA is mijn eerste stap.
Heb ik hiermee een juiste voorzet gegeven om tot een vlugge oplossing te komen ?
Wat ik me ook afvraag ?
- Is het inderdaad een realistisch milieuprobleem(pje) ? (met de huidige acties tot minder gebruik of verbod van plastic voorwerpen: zakjes, rietjes, e.a.)
- Of moet ik een ander europees orgaan contacteren om de procedure tot verbod te laten opstarten ? Welke is de wettelijke procedure ?
Mijn doel is vlug een doortastend resultaat te bekomen.
Met vriendelijke groeten

ab Hello,
 I would like to download timeseries of air quality data from all stations in selected urban areas (E1,E2) (e.g. from here
Therefore I would like to get all SamplingPoint within selected urban areas and generate the URL.
How should I join the several metadata available to get all the SamplingPoint for an urban area?
- Should I match the metadata provided in https://ereporting.blob.core.windows.net/[…]/metadata.csv with the Air quality zones in dataflow B? I can't find a way to join them.
- In the metadata in Dataflow D there is only the name of the Network, little information on the Geographical name.

Any help is appreciated, Thanks!
