Definition: Nomenclature for Sources of Emissions


The NOSE project aims at producing practical tools for the description of sources of emissions within an emissions inventory or register. It should be clearly understood that NOSE covers the use of two independent classifications which serve as descriptors in a database, one being NACE Rev.1, the other one being the NOSE Process List which is defined in technical terms. The novel part of NOSE is of course the NOSE Process List which is quite separate from the use of NACE. Typically, the NOSE descriptors (NACE Rev.1 and the NOSE Process List) will be used within a database to describe the emissions from multiple specific processes within an industrial installation. They can also be used to aggregate emissions data either in terms of economic branches (using NACE) or in terms of processes (using the NOSE Process List)
