  1. Environmental Protection Agency Statistical Data (emissions to air and waste generation/treatment) Violeta Juozefaite „Global environmental information systems: challenges for Lithuania“, 23 October, 2008,Vilnius

  2. Emissions to Air: responsible institutions Ministry of Environment (MoE): data collection, analysis, reporting Environmental Protection Agency (EPA): data collection at national level, analysis, reporting Regional Environmental Protection Departments (REPDs): data collection at regional level, emissions control, permitting

  3. Emissions to Air: data inflow • Administrative data sources(annual reports, E-PRTR reports, inventories, permits) Content:the data on pollutants emission per year from point sources + very limited information on facilities Data flow:data is collected from enterprises in paper format-> entered into the database by 8 REPDs -> validated and aggregated at national level by EPA DB management system:FoxPro (DOS) Data access:not available for external users

  4. Emissions to Air: data inflow Limitations:no information on pollutants concentration, sparse/inaccurate data on facilities’ coordinates;emission is related to the main NACEactivity ofenterprises, but not to process Future steps:integration to ICISEM IS -> Oracle DB -> Internet interface + creation of E-PRTR and inventories DB

  5. Emissions to Air: data inflow 2. Annual reports, publications prepared by institutions insubordinate to the MoE(Statistics Lithuania, State Tax Inspectorate, etc.) + survey of enterprises Content:the auxiliary data used to estimate pollutants emission from non-point sources (transport, agriculture, landfills, etc.), critical load, etc. + the additional information about point sources DB management system: Access DB (CollectER software) Data access: not available for external users Limitations:information on point sources covers just a small part of existing enterprises Future steps: integration to ICISEM IS -> Oracle DB -> Internet interface

  6. Emissions to Air: data outflow MoE: reporting tothe EC (DGEnv) via software prepared by the EC or sent in Excel data sheets Reporting framework: NEC Directive (2001/81/EC), Decision on Greenhouse gas monitoring mechanism (280/2004/EC), LCP Directive (2001/80/EC), etc. EPA:reporting tothe EC (DGEnv) via software prepared by EC, statistical summaries (Excel data sheets) are placed on EPA website Reporting framework: E-PRTR regulation (166/2006)

  7. Waste: responsible institutions Environmental Protection Agency (EPA): data collection at national level, analysis, reporting Regional Environmental Protection Departments (REPDs): data collection at regional level, waste treatment control, permitting

  8. Waste: data inflow • Administrative data sources (annual reports, registration forms, permits) Content:data on generated/treated waste per year, treatment operations, imported/exported products Data flow:data is collected from enterprises in paper format or via internet-> entered into the databases by REPDs or enterprises -> checked by REPDs -> validated by EPA DB management system: MySQL Data access: for external users available just not confidential data

  9. Waste: data inflow Limitations:due to complicated and imperfect waste accounting system databases do not have simple answers, i.e. databases user should beat least a waste expert, plus, must be very familiar with problems of the existing data collectionsystem Future steps:improvement of legislation on waste accounting

  10. Waste: data outflow EPA:reporting tothe EC (DGEnv, Eurostat) via Eurostat web portal eDAMIS (electronic Dataflow Administration and Management Information System), statistical summaries (Excel data sheets) are placed on EPA website, not confidential data in the databases are accessible via internet for authorized users all data stored in the databases are available Reporting framework: Waste Statistics Regulation, Packaging Directive, WEEE Directive, End of Life Vehicle Directive, etc.
