Explanation of symbols

Table description


This table contains emission factors for exhaust gasses from road
vehicles per year of construction, applicable to calendar year 2008.
These factors, which give the emissions of CO, VOC, NOx and PM10 per
vehicle kilometre for urban roads, rural roads, and motorways, have
been applied in the calculation of road traffic emissions in the
Netherlands (see paragraph 3).

The following sources have been distinguished:
Passenger car, motorcycle, moped, delivery van, lorry, road tractor,
bus and coach, and special purpose vehicle;
by total, petrol, diesel and LPG.

Years of construction:
Vehicle ages from 0 to 8 years (years of construction 2000 to 2008)
and age class 9 years and older (years of construction 1999 and
older).

Period: 2008.

Data available from: n/a.

Status of the figures:
Definitive figures (= t-2, in which t=year of publication ).

Changes with respect to the previous version of this table:
N/a. It concerns a new table containing the latest state of affairs;
in this case a set emission factors for calendar year 2008.
NB Due to a renewed set of basic emission factors becoming available
recently, the 2008 factors are not unconditionally comparable with
previously published factors.

When will new figures be published?
In principle every springtime a new table is made which refers to
the last calendar year of the most recent emission data published in
Statline.
The previous version of the emission factor set will then be moved to
the Statline archive.

Description topics

CO
Emission of carbon monoxide per vehicle kilometre.
Carbon monoxide emissions are caused by incomplete combustion of fuels.
Carbon monoxide is a toxic gas (detrimental to health).
VOC
Volatile organic compounds, emission by combustion per vehicle
kilometre.
Caused by incomplete combustion of fuels.
VOC's are smog generating and sometimes carcinogenic.
NOx
Emission of Nitrogen oxides (NOx = NO and NO2, calculated as NO2) per
vehicle kilometre.
Nitrogen oxides are formed in the engine by the combustion of
nitrogen from ambient air.
Nitrogen oxides cause acidification and play a role in smog
generation. Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is detrimental to health.
PM10
Emission of particulate matter emission by combustion per vehicle
kilometre (PM10 = particulates with diameter smaller than
10 micrometers).
It is detrimental to health, penetrates deeply into the lungs.
