This paper presents an emission inventory of sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NO,), particulate matter (PM) and carbon dioxide (CO2), for the countries cooperating in the Central European Initiative, i.e., Austria, Croatia, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovenia.

The inventory is based on national and regional statistics as well as on information available from the collaborating institutions, which has not yet been internationally published. National data has been verified and converted into a common format, consistent with the database used by the European Environmental Agency and the European Community (the CORINAIR system).

The inventory describes emissions in the year 1988 (before the restructuring process began in former socialist economies). Data has been collected for three levels: National, Administrative, Large Point Sources (LPS).

A point source database has been created, in which specific information (e.g., capacity, commissioning year, fuel use, production) about 400 large plants in Central Europe is stored.

The result of this work represents the first consistent inventory of the sources of air pollution in Central Europe.
