Dataset is not available.
This table contains annual figures on the total Dutch emissions of the greenhouse gases carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O) and methane (CH4), broken down into stationary and mobile sources.
Fluorine-containing gases that contribute to the greenhouse effect are not included.
The greenhouse gas emissions to air have been calculated according to the regulations of the climate panel IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change). IPCC was founded by the United Nations and aims to map and share the available knowledge in the field of climate, climate change and its consequences.
Data available from: 1990
Status of the figures:
The figures from 1990 to 2021 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 15 February 2023:
Addition of final figures 2021. Data in the years 1991-1994 and 1996-1999 have been added. The hobby animals are included in sector 01 Agriculture.
The underlying coding of classifications (Periods) used in this table has been adjusted.
It is now in line with the standard encoding defined by CBS.
The structure and data of the table have not been adjusted.
When will new figures be published?
Provisional figures for 2022 will be published in October 2023.
- 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).
- 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).
- 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).
