CO2 emissions up in 2015

In 2015 14.6 million tons of CO2 was emitted into the air, which is a 1.8% increase compared to 2014. In all NACE activities, CO2 emissions increased by 1.3%, while in the households they increased by 3.8%. In the former, the highest increase was recorded in electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply (by 2.7%), followed by transportation and storage (by 2.2%), while in the latter, the highest increase was recorded in heating and cooling (by 7.2%).

The highest shares of CO2 emissions originated from electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply (31.4%), transportation and storage (27.6%) and households (20.7%). From the latter, the most emissions (76.6%) originated from transportation.

Nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions lower by almost a tenth

In 2015 NOx emissions decreased by 9.5% compared to 2014; i.e. from 48,300 tons to 43,700 tons. 51.0% of NOx emissions originated from transportation and storage, 10.3% from electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply, 9.1% from manufacturing, 11.5% from other NACE activities and 18.1% from households.

In 2015 more than 70% of PM10 emissions originated from households

In 2015 13,800 tons of PM10 was emitted into the air, which is 0.7% more than in 2014. 10.0% of PM10 emissions originated from manufacturing, 9.4% from transportation and storage, 2.7% from electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply and 7.0% from other NACE activities. The most PM10 emissions (70.9%) originated from households, of which 90.0% (63.8% of the total) from heating and cooling.

SOx emissions down by 38%

A decrease in 2015 compared to 2014 was recorded in SOx (by 38.0%), NOx (by 9.5%) and sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) emissions (by 1.7%). All other air emissions were higher than in 2014; the highest increase was recorded in N2O (by 8.5%) and hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) emissions (by 5.3%).
