Modelling the concentrations of chemicals in emissions - call for tenders

September 10, 2004

Brussels, 08 Sep 2004

The European Environment Agency has published a call for tenders for a feasibility study on modelling environmental concentrations of chemicals from emission data.

The aim of this feasibility study is to explore the availability of suitable models to predict environmental concentrations of chemicals from point source emission data such as the data reported to EPER, the European Pollutant Emission Register, and develop a strategy for how these can be used to assess the chemical burden of Europe's environment.

The contractor will develop a toolbox of available methodologies and a workplan for applying relevant models to substances reported under EPER in order to predict the concentrations, composition and distribution of these chemicals in the European environment. The main tasks in this feasibility study will be to: 1) evaluate:
- which of the available methods to model environmental concentrations of chemicals in the different media are sufficiently validated and accepted to be used in a policy context;
- which of the models are suitable for all or some of the substances listed under EPER and other types of compounds; 2) make a test run; 3) develop a strategic proposal for how these models and derived data can be used to estimate and predict the concentrations, composition and distribution of chemicals in the European and wider environment based on European emission data.
