The Emission Factors for Domestic Solid Fuels Project – Work Package 1 Report was published on 5 January, there are two remaining work packages which are expected to be completed to feed into the annual publication of the National Atmospheric Emissions Inventory in February 2025.

We continue to undertake regular monitoring of emission sources of air pollutants to inform future policy. There will be an assessment of the implications for policies following the completion of the whole Emissions Factors for Domestic Solid Fuels Project. We would not expect this assessment to be published.
