Table description


This table contains figures on the total Dutch emissions of the greenhouse gases CO2, N2O and CH4 by both stationary and mobile sources. It offers an insight in the emissions as reported within the framework of reporting commitments for the United Nations Climate Treaty (UNFCCC) and the European Union Monitoring Mechanism for Greenhouse gases.
The emissions haven been calculated according to the IPCC-guidelines. The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) is a UN organization that reports on the state of affairs of the scientific knowledge concerning climate changes and related issues. The CO2 figures include the emissions caused by the use of. This source accounts for about 0.1 billion kilograms.
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.

Data available from: 1990

Status of the figures:
All figures are definitive. 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 9 February 2022:
Definitive figures of 2020 has been added.

When will new figures be published?
Provisional figures of 2021 will be published in September 2022.

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).
CH4
Methane (= natural gas).

Among other causes CH4 is formed by incomplete combustion of fuels, leakage from the natural gas network, and by fermentation. Greenhouse gas (causes the temperature of the earth's atmosphere to rise gradually).
N2O
Laughing gas/dinitrogen oxide.

N2O is formed during various chemical conversion processes, among which during the warming up phase of catalytic converters, as a result of incomplete conversion of nitrogen oxides (NOx) into nitrogen (N2). Greenhouse gas (causes the temperature of the earth's atmosphere to rise gradually).
