Particulate matter emissions in PRTR

What does particulate matter mean?

The term particulate matter comprises particles with an aerodynamic diameter of less than 10 µm, which due to its size remain in the atmosphere for a long time. These maybe further distinguished between PM10 (particulate matter, smaller than 10 µm) and PM2.5 (particulate matter, smaller than 2.5 µm). Particulate matter belongs to the group of air pollutants.

Ammonia emissions from intensive rearing of pigs continue to be at high levels

Extensive emissions of Ammonia into the air remain a well-known problem for years. This has resulted in oversupply with nutrients, processes of acid deposition and the loss of biological diversity in ecosystems. The largest part of ammonia emissions in Germany is generated in the agriculture sector (95%), with 52% stemming from cattle farming and 20% from intensive rearing of pigs.

Thru.de is Open Data!

Do you want to know the amount of pollutants released by the chemical facility in your city or how much is discharged to the North Sea via rivers? How much of EU subvention has been received by the fattening facility in your village? You would like to listen again to decisions made by your local council because you are interest in a real estate for which you need standard land values in order to judge the prize offer? Perhaps you only want to know the departure of the tram.

PRTR becomes Thru.de

The Thru.de Internet portal provides you with a lot of information about the quality of the environment – or more precisely, about how much pollution industrial facilities are releasing to the environment and how much waste they are disposing of off-site. The name Thru.de stands for clarity, transparency, reliability and credibility. In Norse mythology Thrude was the goddess of trees and flowers. Her name means 'strength'.
