Method

Fireworks

Germany reports the emissions from NOx, SOx, TSP, PM10, PM2.5, As, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Hg, Ni, Pb and Zn of the usage of fireworks in Germany.

The emission factors are from the EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission inventory guidebook 2013, p. 20, table 3-13.

Statistical data on imports, exports and production of fireworks are used as activity data with consumption = import + production - export. The sold amounts of fireworks have decreased slightly from 1990 to 1995 and have been relatively constant since.

Cigarettes

Germany reports the emissions of NOx, NH3, NMVOC, TSP, PM10, PM2.5, Cd, Co, Cu, Ni, Zn, Benzo(a)pyrene (B[a]P), Benzo(b)fluoranthene (B[b]F), Benzo(k)fluoranthene (B[k]F), Indeno(1,2,3-cd)pyrene (I[123cd]P), PAH 1-4 and PCDD/F from the smoking of cigarettes and cigars.

The emission factors are from the EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission inventory guidebook 2013, p. 21, table 3-14.

Statistical data on imports, exports and production of tobacco, cigarettes and cigars are used as activity data. For the tobacco content of the cigarettes and cigars the note of the table 3-14 was used, which says, that one cigarette contains 1 g of tobacco and one cigar contains 5 g of tobacco (consumption = import + production - export). The sold amounts of cigarettes have been relatively constant since 1990.

Charcoal

Germany reports the emissions from TSP, PM10, PM2.5 of the usage of charcoal for barbecue.

The annual production, import and export volumes of charcoal are extracted from national statistics by the Federal Statistical Office and used to calculate the annual charcoal consumption for barbecue as import + production - export. Other application are not included. The model based also on the assumption that there is no storage of charcoal.
The amount of charcoal used for barbecue has ever-expanding since 1990 and predominantly imported. As there is only on big producers the production volumes and emission factors are confidential. But the emission factors are derived from the CEPMEIP Database (SNAP: 060508).

Recalculations

As method and data used have changed for fireworks and cigarettes, the emissions reported for these sources have been re-estimated as follows:

Table: Recalculated TSP emissions 2012, in [t]
from cigarettes from fireworks
Submission 2015 10,697 4,707
Submission 2014 6,039 2,818
absolute change 4,658 1,889
relative change +77% +67%

In Addition, new pollutants were added.
