This table contains information about the origin and destination of emissions to water of nutrients and heavy metals. These data are part of the environmental accounts. The origin of the emissions to water can be divided into the Dutch economy (disaggregated by private households and industries) and the rest of the world. The destination can be divided into absorption by producers, drain off emissions to the rest of the world and contribution to the environmental problem. The figures in this table can be compared in a consistent way to macro-economic indicators. Furthermore, water emission accounts indicators can be derived for the emissions of heavy metals into water and the eutrophication of surface waters. These indicators can be used for supporting water policy.
Data available from: 1995
Status of the figures:
To obtain coherent and consistent time series, the complete time series are (re)calculated. The latest insights, particularly with regard to the emission factors are included in the calculations.
Changes as of January 30, 2015:
None, this is a new table.
This table replaces a similar table containing data till 2010, where except for the years 1995, 2000, 2005 and 2010 from the emission inventory also the interjacent years were provided (see paragraph 3. Links to relevant tables and articles).
When will new figures be published?
New figures are published biannually in October, simultaneously with the appearance of the publication of the environmental accounts. The first update will take place in October 2016.
