Explanation of symbols

Table description


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). 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

Status of the figures:
The figures from 1990 to 2020 are final. In order to obtain a consistent time series the complete data set is (re)calculated when necessary, so as to be able to include the latest insights in the survey, especially in the case of emission factors.

Changes as of 8 September 2022:
Addition of provisional figures 2021.

When will new figures be published?
Final figures for 1990 to 2021 will be published in February 2023.

Description topics

Emissions, Dutch territory
The actual emissions in or above the Netherlands and on the continental shelf (of Europe) (area in between the low water line and a water depth of 200 meters with a maximum of 200 miles from the coast line).
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.
