sosorior I think there is something wrong with the data regarding free- allocation in the ETS Data Viewer[…]/emissions-trading-viewer-1 . The volume of 1.1 Freely allocated allowances is just so high. It cannot be that free allocation alone is higher than verified emissions. It does not make sense. Furthermore, this number does not match the sum of 1.1.3 Free allocation for modernisation of electricity generation (Art. 10c), 1.1.2 Free allocation from the new entrants reserve (Art. 10a(7)), 1.1.1 Free allocation to existing entities (Art. 10a(1)). The number reported as the aggregate is indeed twice the sum of its components. I could not find any other place to report this inconsistency.

DanteMaschio doubts about the reported data on the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive (UWWTD)


I am working on a database based on the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive (UWWTD) data reported by the EU Member States. Here there are some doubts I can not solve with the information available on the EEA website.

General questions:
- Can we understand Individual Appropriate System (IAS) as an on-site treatment?
- According to the descriptions of the updated tables on the web now the number of real inhabitants is reported in the agglomeration table. However these data are not up to date. It will be available?

In relation to some tables:
1. T_UWWTPs:
(uwwloadentering) Is there a possibility to have the influence flow in m3 /d?
(uwwstate) How can I understand the inactive and temporarily inactive state for each uwwtps point?
(uwwdateclosing and uwwendlife) Could I understand that records prior to the current date are points that are no working now?
(uwwotherteatment) Which is the difference between Tertiary treatment (UV, Cl, O3,…) and Other – more stringent treatment?
(uwwperformance) How can I understand the Not Relevant registers?

2. T_agglomerations
(agglstate) How can I understand the inactive or temporarily inactive state for each agglomeration?
(aggendlife) What it meant that an agglomeration has reached its end of life?

3. T_UWWTPAgglom
When it is an imperative to report the relationship UWWTPs:Agglomeration?

4. T_UWWdischargepoints
(dcpstate) How can I understand the inactive and temporarily inactive state of a discharge point?

5. T_UWWemissionload:
Why there is so little information about the polluting charges (BOD, COD, TSS) that come in and out of UWWTPs?

I would also be useful if you can send me the Spanish contact who report and work on the data related to this directive.

omri Hello, I have found information regarding the damage cost of Benzene on the paper "Costs of air pollution from European industrial facilities 2008–2012" ([…]/costs-of-air-pollution-2008-2012). However there seems to be some contradiction between the figures presented on page 26, table 3.1 (76000 Euro/ Tonne) and page 70, table A3.7 (0.076 Euro/ Kg). Other pollutants' damage costs appear to match along the Annexes and table 3.1. Which of these two is the correct value?
Much appreciation.
