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.

Agriculture

Agriculture contributes, and will contribute a very large share of total emissions of methane also in the future. Abatement measures are available to reduce emissions of CH4 from ruminant enteric fermentation, from manure management (including biogas production), and also the possibility to reduce the number of animals (and thus also the CH4 emissions) following measures to promote behavioural changes towards less meat consumption. Several of the measures discussed in this chapter are already present to a smaller or larger degree in the Nordic countries, but the applications could be extended. The situation differs between the Nordic countries, and the potential for relevant additional (or extended measures) may vary.
