Fifth Toolkit Expert Meeting

Fifth Toolkit Expert Meeting

Geneva, Switzerland
from 1 to 3 December 2010

The Fifth Toolkit Expert Meeting to Further Develop the Standardized Toolkit for Identification and Quantification of Dioxin and Furan Releases was held from 1 to 3 December 2010 in Geneva, Switzerland. The meeting was attended by technical experts from the Toolkit Expert Roster.

The general guidance on the Toolkit was revised to include aspects related to the updating and revision of inventories and data quality codes. Dioxin emission factors have been revised and/or newly developed for the following source groups: 2 – Metal industry, 3 - Power generation and heating, 4- Mineral products, and 6 – Open burning processes. Emission factors for unintentionally produced POPs other than dioxin and furans were equally derived for certain source categories. The revised information will complement the 2005 edition of the Toolkit and provide up-to-date guidance to Parties in developing inventories of unintentionally produced POPs.
