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.

Oil and gas production

Among the Nordic countries this source is important primarily in Norway (Kindbom et al. 2015, TN2015:523). The largest sources of methane in the oil and gas system are from venting and fugitive emissions (leaks). These emissions are difficult to measure and quantify, and available data on emissions are considered to be uncertain. Already today, however, several techniques to abate emissions of methane are implemented in Norway.
