4 Conclusions

This fact sheet presents the approach for quantifying regional and continental point and diffuse emissions, through a process of data gathering, selection of emission quantification methods, and estimating regional and continental emission data. The total EU27 nickel emissions and the regional emissions, calculated according to two scenarios [generic and selected (e.g., The Netherlands scenario)] are used as input data for the EUSES 2.0 model to calculate the regional predicted environmental concentrations (PEC) for different environmental compartments (e.g., air, surface water, sediment, agricultural soil, natural soil, and industrial soil).
