Title: Annual European Community greenhouse gas inventory 1990-1998
Title (other): Submission to the secretariat of the UNFCCC
Abstract
This report presents greenhouse gas inventories for the European Community and its Member States, for 1990-1998. The EU has to report annual inventories to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. The European Commission submitted the report to the UNFCCC secretariat in April 2000. Total EU greenhouse gas emissions have fallen slightly (2%). The data are available on the EEA web site.[Author vide copyright]

Title: Annual European Community CLRTAP emission inventory 1980-1998
Title (other): Submission to the Executive Body of the UNECE Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution
Abstract
This study has collated available environmental expenditure data on the market for goods and services produced by eco-industries in both the EU-15 and the Candidate Countries, as the basis for describing the economic significance of the sector, including employment levels. Whilst there are gaps and inconsistencies in the available data sets, only limited estimation procedures are required to derive a detailed and rigorous basis for economic analysis. The study also provides insights into the export capabilities of EU Member States, particularly their relationship with the Candidate Countries. For the purposes of this study, eco-industries have been defined according to the definition contained in 'The Environmental Goods and Services Industry - Manual for Data Collection and Analysis' (OECD/Eurostat, 1999). This defines eco-industries as 'activities which produce goods and services to measure, prevent, limit, minimise or correct environmental damage to water, air and soil, as well as problems related to waste, noise and eco-systems. This includes cleaner technologies, products and services that reduce environmental risk and minimise pollution and resource use'.[Author vide copyright]

Title: Calculation of nutrient surpluses from agricultural sources
Title (other): Statistics spatialisation by means of CORINE land cover Application to the case of nitrogen
Abstract
The assessment of potential losses of agricultural fertilizers to waters require prior calculation of nutrient balance (surplus). This study shows how the use of CORINE land cover allows calculating comparable surplus values at the river catchment level, despite heterogeneity and high degree of aggregation of the available statistics for the two test basins (Loire, (F) and Elbe (D, CZ)).[Author vide copyright]

Title: Success stories within the road transport sector on reducing greenhouse gas emission and producing ancillary benefits
Abstract
For EU to meet its intermediate and long term targets on Climate Change it is essential that the environmental performance of the transport sector notably improves. In doing so all available reasonable measures must be used, EU and country wide, as well as regionally and locally. This report presents six successful examples of measures that have been implemented locally and that could serve as masters for similar implementation elsewhere. [Author vide copyright]

Title: Industrial pollution, European solutions: clean technologies
Title (other): LIFE and the Directive on integrated pollution prevention and control (IPPC Directive) | Pollution industrielle,
solutions européennes: les technologies propres : LIFE et la Directive sur la prévention et la réduction intégrées
de la pollution (Directive IPPC)
Abstract
No-one doubts that industrial activity is essential for the economy, citizens' wellbeing and maintenance of employment. However, data from the European Environment Agency1 show that the state of the environment continues to deteriorate in various fields. Despite remarkable progress made in recent decades in virtually all industrial sectors in terms of ecological efficiency of production processes, a great deal remains to be done before we will have reached a sustainable standards. We need to reduce substantially atmospheric emissions - in particular those contributing to climate change - and water pollution, water and energy consumption, the use of toxic substances, the quantity of non-recyclable waste, etc. One of the key methods for meeting this challenge is through technological development. This involves improving the capacity of industry to innovate. In order to stimulate this preventive approach, the European Union's policy combines legislative requirements, R&D and financial support for innovative projects, in particular LIFE-Environment projects. At the legislative level, every operator of a major industrial installation must apply the "best available techniques" (BAT) to prevent or substantially reduce adverse effects on the environment. This obligation - soon to be applicable throughout the Europe of the Twenty-Five - is laid down in the integrated pollution prevention and control directive. The European Commission recently published a communication on its implementation. It called upon the Member States to enhance their efforts and has organised large-scale consultation 2.LIFE provides industrial innovators with support that may be decisive, in particular within small and medium-sized industries, in demonstrating the feasibility of promising technologies and ensuring dissemination of positive results. Several LIFE projects in various sectors have already contributed to improving manufacturing processes and others are in progress. This brochure highlights examples of the role which

Title: Governance, Finance and Capacity : a review of waste management practices in the 12 EU Accession Candidates
Abstract
The report concentrates on two major challenges facing municipalities in the central and eastern European countries: how to meet the strict requirements of EU accession, and how to deal with the rising waste burden.The report was prepared within the framework of the European Commission LOGON II project. In the last two decades, significant progress has been made in the field of waste management in the existing 15 EU member states. Today, policy innovations, coupled with new and improved technologies provide a better spread of options to decision makers. Networks of best practice and organisations with mandates to build capacity at the local level support the development of integrated waste management strategies throughout the EU. Unfortunately, many of these advances have not yet taken root in the 12 EU acession candidate countries. The information presented in this report provides a mixed view of waste management in the EU accession candidates. There are great differences between and often even within candidate countries. There are some recurring deficiencies that are common to all 12 countries to one extent or another. The most striking problem is the failure to communicate. Local authorities rarely communicate with each other, have poor internal co-ordination between municipal departments, and have insufficient systems of consultation with local stakeholder groups. These problems, if left unchecked, will seriously undermine the efforts to implement and enforce environmental legislation. Efficient waste management comes at a cost and this cost is presently too large for most municipalities in the central and eastern European countries. The provisions contained within waste legislation (especially those relating to taxes and charges) do not adequately cover the cost of providing quality waste management. Moreover, despite the influx of foreign aid and investment, most notably from the European Union, the bulk of this money remains tied up at the central level. The result is that too little money filters down
