Measures to Reduce Emissions of Short-Lived Climate Pollutants (SLCP) in the Nordic Countries

In the future residential biomass combustion and transport will be important sources for emissions to air of black carbon (BC), as will agriculture and waste management for emissions of methane (CH4). Measures to abate emissions of Short-Lived Climate Pollutants (SLCP) are to varying degrees already in place in the Nordic countries. To reduce emissions beyond current emission projections, additional measures are required. Both technical measures, such as improved technologies, and non-technical measures, such as promoting behavioral changes favoring reduced emissions are discussed in this report.

Examples on Nordic biogas production from manure

Good examples of existing measures in the Nordic countries to reduce emissions of methane from agricultural sources are presented in Hellstedt et.al. (2014). Biogas production on different scales is assumed to be the most efficient measure to abate methane emissions. Digestion of manure is in the study assumed to mainly contribute to the reduction of methane emissions by replacing energy from fossil sources with biogas and not by reducing emissions from manure storage and spreading.
