Biofuel combustion is increasing across Europe. VERIFY researchers are working to separate and quantify CO2 emissions from biofuel combustion to ensure that likely future intensification supports international climate objectives.

In an effort to measure in-situ effective atmospheric proxy/ffCO2 ratios, two mobile measurement stations will be used to sample atmospheric trace gas concentrations in close proximity to specific sources.

On November 4 and 5, 2019, the H2020-funded project VERIFY hosted a workshop in Paris, France, surrounding one of the project’s primary goals: synthesizing a variety of scientific bottom-up and top-down modeling approaches for comparison with national inventory reports for three important greenhouse gases.

The CHE-VERIFY Joint General Assembly 2019 took place on March 12-14, 2019 at ECMWF in Reading, UK, and brought together partners of the two Horizon2020 funded projects CHE (CO2 Human Emissions ) and VERIFY (Verifying Greenhouse Gas Emissions ) along with external advisors for discussions on CHE and VERIFY work packages, project progress and linkages between the projects.

 VERIFY was at the EGU General Assembly in Vienna, on 12th of April 2019, presenting the objectives and first results of the project, during the posters session "Science-based GHG Estimates in Support of National and Sub-National Climate Change Mitigation".

A first stakeholder meeting was organized in Paris, on 14 November 2018, and involving both inventory compilers and scientists, with the aim to work on the common understanding of emission inventory reporting concepts, definitions, uncertainties, data gaps and ways to deal with those difficulties.

This meeting engaged about 40 experts.

It is the first of a series of three meetings in total that will be organized over the course of the VERIFY project.
