Data come from three sources:

The Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution (LRTAP Convention), UNECE-EMEP Emissions Database, WebDab 2018. When available (and complete enough), emission data officially submitted by Parties to the Secretariat of the Convention are presented. Metadata are added when expert emissions are used.
National Inventory Submissions 2018 to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC, CRF tables).
Replies to the OECD Questionnaire on the State of the Environment and comments from member countries received before late August 2018.

Annual emissions of air pollutants
These data are estimates of the annual volume of emissions of major air pollutants with respect to mobile and stationary sources. The details of estimation methods for emissions such as emission factors and reliability, extent of sources and pollutants included in estimations, etc., may differ from one country to another.

Item coverage

This dataset provides selected information on emissions of traditional air pollutants: Emission data are based upon the best available engineering estimates for a given period; they concern man-made emissions of sulphur oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx), particulate matter, carbon monoxide (CO) and volatile organic compounds (VOC).

Categories presented are based on the NFR 2014 classification.

Data exclude non-man-made emissions and international aviation and maritime transports emissions. For some countries, residential mobile emissions (e.g. mowers) are included into 'Other combustion' instead of 'Other mobile'.

The GDP used to calculate intensities is expressed in USD at 2010 prices and PPPs.
