Explanation of symbols

Table description


This table contains figures on the emissions in the Netherlands by stationary and mobile sources. These are actual emissions in or above the Netherlands and its continental shelf (see paragraph 2).
The calculation of emissions by stationary sources is among other data sources based on specifications in the annual emission reports of separate enterprises and additional estimates based on production and energy data provided by Statistics Netherlands. According to the activity classification (SIC 2008) the coke factory of Tata Steel belongs to the
energy sector. In this table it’s emissions are assigned to the category manufacture of iron and steel.
Emissions by mobile sources are calculated by multiplying data on activities, for instance vehicle kilometres and fuel consumption, by emission factors.

Data available from: 1990

Status of the figures:
The figures from 1990 to 2020 are final. In order to obtain a consistent time series the complete data set is (re)calculated when necessary, so as to be able to include the latest insights in the survey, especially in the case of emission factors.

Changes as of 8 September 2022:
Addition of provisional figures 2021.

When will new figures be published?
Final figures for 1990 to 2021 will be published in February 2023.

Description topics

CO2
Carbon dioxide.

CO2 is formed by the combustion of carbon in fuels. Greenhouse gas (causes the temperature of the earth's atmosphere to rise gradually).
SO2
Sulphur dioxide (SO2 and SO3, calculated as SO2).

SO2 is formed by the combustion of sulphur in fuels. Causes acidification.
NOx
Nitrogen oxides (NOx = NO and NO2, calculated as NO2).

Causes acidification and generates smog.
PM10
Particulate matter (PM10 = particulates with diameter smaller than 10 micrometres).

Among other causes PM10 is formed during the combustion of diesel fuel, various industrial processes, and wear processes like the wear of tyres, brake linings, road surface, and railway overhead contact lines. Detrimental to health, penetrates deeply into the lungs.
