Data come from three sources:

  • The Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution (LRTAP Convention), UNECE-EMEP emissions Database, WebDab 2017, as of May 2017. When available (and complete enough), emission data officially submitted by Parties to the Secretariat of the Convention are presented. Metadata are added when expert emissions are used.
  • National Inventory Submissions 2017 (as of May 2017) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC, CRF tables).
  • Replies to the OECD Questionnaire on the State of the Environment and comments from member countries received before late September 2017.

Annual emissions of air pollutants

These data are estimates of the annual volume of emissions of major air pollutants with respect to mobile and stationary sources. The details of estimation methods for emissions such as emission factors and reliability, extent of sources and pollutants included in estimations, etc., may differ from one country to another.

Environment Database - Emissions of air pollutantsData source(s) used

Data come from three sources:

EMEP officialhttp://www.ceip.at/emission-data-webdab/emissions-as-reported-by-parties/UNFCCChttp://unfccc.int/2860.phpItem coverage

This dataset provides selected information on national emissions of traditional air pollutants: emission data are based upon the best available engineering estimates for a given period; they concern man-made emissions of sulphur oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx), particulate matter (PM), carbon monoxide (CO) and volatile organic compounds (VOC).

Categories presented are based on the NFR 2014 classification. Details of regroupings can be found in the table of correspondence.

Data exclude non man-made emissions and international aviation and maritime transports emissions. For some countries residential mobile emissions (e.g. mowers) are included into Other combustion instead of Other mobile.

The GDP used to calculate intensities is expressed in USD at 2010 prices and PPPs.
