2nd meeting of the working group on air protection “Partnership: Environment for Development”

On 22 May, we discussed the Central Building Emission Inventory with representatives of the Ministry of Climate and Environment, the General Office of Building Control, local authorities and organisations from across the country. The meeting was aimed at exchanging experiences, as well as answering the questions: what improvements are necessary to implement to make the database useful for municipalities and regions? What can be done with the data from the Central Building Emissions Inventory?

Challenges and plans for the future

With the help of the Regional Office for Spatial Planning, the West Pomeranian Voivodeship is conducting spatial analyses on data from the Central Building Emission Register. This shows how the data from the database can be mapped. It makes it easy to locate the density of coal furnaces in a municipality. You can then see at a glance where to intervene and replace boilers first.

Use of data from the Central Emission Register of Buildings at the voivodeship level

The data from the database can also be used to prepare an emissions inventory as part of the development of a regional air protection programme. The European Clean Air Centre shared its experience on how, using available emission calculators, an emission database can be prepared.

The air protection working group “Partnership: Environment for Development”

The Partnership: Environment for Development project is implemented by the Ministry of Climate and Environment. The aim of the project is to create a platform for cooperation between environmental and climate authorities, including the management of EU funds. The project is financed by the Technical Assistance Programme for European Funds 2021-2027.
