Researchers and experts of the Green InterTraffic project have completed the development of the electronic version of the Manual of the Estimating Greenhouse Gas and other Air Emissions of the Road Traffic. This book analyzes emissions on the road E18: Helsinki-Saint Petersburg.
The aim of this Manual is to propose common approaches for calculating of road emissions for all interested stakeholders. In Part I the emission calculations for greenhouse gases are introduced. In Part II emission calculations for particulate matter and nitrogen dioxides are introduced.
Preliminary estimates of road transport emissions on the E18 are aimed to attract more attention to the region and to reduce the anthropogenic impact on the environment and human health. This work will be the basis for the development of the Common Model of ecological status of Intertraffic at the next stages of the project.The full text of the Manual is available at the link. 28 January 2020
