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

image of 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.

Waste treatment

Methane is emitted from previously deposited organic waste in landfills, from management of currently produce waste, and from waste water treatment. Emissions of CH4 from waste are expected to decrease in the future, mainly due to the existing ban of landfilling of organic waste. Emissions from waste treatment will however remain a significant CH4 emission source.
