Emissions to air, origin and destination; national accounts 1990-2013


This table presents the air emission accounts, as a part of the environmental accounts compiled by Statistics Netherlands annually. The air emission accounts show where the air pollutants and gases observed in the air stem from (the origin) and where they go (the destination). Hereby the emission of pollutants and gases from both stationary sources (such as power plants) as well as from mobile sources (such as road transport) are allocated to the different industries and to households.
Table selections can be made that show the size of the emissions to the air per substance, per year, by economic activity (including households). Air pollutants among others include greenhouse gases (CO2, CH4, N2O), gases that cause ozone layer depleting (CFCs) and acidifying substances (SO2, NOx and NH3).
As the data in environmental accounts is compiled according similar concepts (such as the resident principle) and classifications as the economic data in the national accounts, it is possible to quantify the environmental effects of the economic activities for Netherlands in a consistent manner.

Data available from: 1990-2013
As of 15 January 2016, this table is discontinued. Figures have been recalculated according to a new method. A link to the new table Emissions to air, origin ands destination; national accounts can be found in chapter 3.

Status of the figures:
Figures are provisional. To obtain coherent and consistent time series for the full range of data figures are recaclculated every year.The latest insights, in particular with regard to emission factors, are taken into account.

Changes as of 15 January 2016:
None, this is a discontinued table.

Changes as of July 8, 2015:
The figures of services from stationary sources were wrongly calculated. These are now corrected. The whole timeseries has been adjusted.

When will new figures be published?
Not applicable.
