The NACAG initiative, launched by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) aims to assure global abatement of N2O emissions from nitric acid production by 2020. The initiative provides all governments and plant operators with guidance and information on technological and regulatory issues regarding N2O abatement and provides financial support for the installation and operation of abatement technology on a condition that partner countries take full responsibility for the mitigation activities after 2020 (e.g. in their NDCs).
