Table description


This table contains information about materials that enter or leave the Dutch economy through import, export and extraction. A distinction is made between raw products (resources), semi-manufactured products and finished products. Country or region of origin and destination is also included. Materials are recorded in kilos (physically). More figures on economy wide material flows can be found in table 'Extraction, import and export of materials by type; national accounts'. See section 3.

This table is part of the environmental accounts. Data of the environmental accounts are compiled according to concepts and definitions of the national accounts, which makes it possible to quantify the environmental effects of the economic activities for the Netherlands in a consistent manner. As a result, the figures may differ from data presented elsewhere on the website.

Data available from: 2004

Status of the figures:
Provisional figures.

Changes as of February 2021:
Provisional figures for 2019 have been added.

When will new figures be published?
New provisional figures are published annually, usually around January.

Description topics

Extraction by type of material
Materials that are extracted from the environment and used by residents as input for the production process. Extraction comprises not only the mining and quarrying of minerals but also harvest of agricultural goods and the catch of non-cultivated fish.
Fossil energy carriers
Oil, gas and coal are fossil fuels. They are also primary energy carriers because they are extracted from nature.
Import by type of material
The import of goods comprises goods, destined for Dutch residents that originate in other economies. This also included goods that, after import, leave the country again without any significant treatment taken place as long as these goods are owned by Dutch residents (re-exports).

Imports from Europe
Raw material
Production phase: There are three kinds of phases of production: raw materials, semi-finished and finished products. For example, wheat is a commodity, flour is a semi-finished product, and bread is the finished product. The award is made on the basis of Eurostat a list which of the material flow accounts is part.
