Air pollutant emission estimation methods for E-PRTR reporting by refineries
This report is an update of the Concawe publication “Air Pollutant Emission Estimation Methods for EPER and PRTR Reporting by Refineries”. It provides algorithms to permit emission estimates to be made by refineries to meet the reporting requirements of the European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (E-PRTR) regarding pollutant emissions to air. This edition contains new factors for the estimation of hydrogen cyanide (HCN) emissions from fluid catalytic cracking units (FCCUs). This report supersedes previous versions, as listed below:

There are 60 air pollutants which must be reported under the E-PRTR requirements if their respective annual emission threshold values are exceeded at a facility. All 60 pollutants are listed in Appendix 1 of this report. Emission estimation methods are provided for 25 of those pollutants. New and updated information is summarised in Appendix 2.
