Emissions to air on Dutch territory; mobile sources ,1990-2018


This table contains figures on the emissions in the Netherlands by mobile sources. These are actual emissions in or above the Netherlands and on the continental shelf (see paragraph 2). It also contains the emission factors derived from these emissions (in grams of emission per kilogram of consumed fuel).
Mobile source emissions are caused by the combustion of motor fuels, the evaporation of fuel and load residues (VOC), wear of tyres, brake linings and road surfaces (PM10), and the wear of railway overhead contact lines, including emissions caused by friction and spark erosion of the current collectors.
The emissions are calculated by multiplying data on activities, for instance vehicle kilometres and fuel consumption, by emission factors.

Data available from 1990 to 2018.

Status of the figures:
The 2018 data is provisional; all other data are final. The status of the figures will not be changed, because this table has been discontinued.

Changes as of 18 March 2020:
None, this table has been discontinued.

Changes as of 11 September 2019:
Adding provisional figures of 2018.

Changes as of 26 February 2019:
- Replacement of 2017 provisional figures by definitive figures.
- Based on TNO data the NOx emission factor for diesel trains has been raised for the entire time series.
- As a result of recent measurements by TNO adjustments have been made to the set of emission factors for road traffic
- There have been minor corrections of the road vehicle mileages of recent years. Obviously this has consequences for the emissions of the years concerned.

When will new figures be published?
Not applicable anymore.
