MAM calculation tool

From 2017 to 2019
Belgium drafts air emission inventories for the transport sector as part of its international obligations. Each region in Belgium (Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels) developed its inventories in order to produce the consolidated Belgian national emission inventory. In order to achieve coherence between all these separate calculations for road traffic, common calculation tools have been developed.  At the one hand, the module for fleet composition, and on the other hand the module for the calculation of emissions with the emission calculation software COPERT.
At the end of 2016, version 5 of the emission calculation software COPERT was released. In order for the emission-inventories to be calculated based on this new version, COPERT5, instead of COPERT 4, the related calculation tools have to be updated.  The update is necessary because, a.o., COPERT5 makes use of a different categorisation of vehicles.
The update of the first calculation tool (the vehicle stock module) has been realized in 2018. 
Within this project, TML is working on an update of the module for the calculation of vehicle kilometres.  To this end, we are developing a whole new module: the ‘MAM’. In this MAM, we are not only adapting the calculations to COPERT5, but also further optimising the methodology and the usability of the tool.
