CO2 emissions in 2016 increased by 3.8% and NOx emissions by 4.5% compared to 2015. In the same period PM10 emissions increased by 2.8%.
Highest share of CO2 emissions originated in electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply
15.2 tons of CO2 was emitted into the air in 2016. Compared to 2015, CO2 emissions originating from all NACE activities increased by 4.2% and CO2 emissions originating from households by 2.5%; the total increase was 3.8%. Compared to 2008, total CO2 emissions decreased by 19.1%; from NACE activities by 21.2% and from households by 10.0%.
Most CO2 emissions in 2016 originated from electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply (32.7%), followed by transportation and storage (26.9%) and households (20.5%).
NOx emissions higher by 4.5%
NOx emissions in 2016 increased by 4.5% compared to 2015; i.e. from 41,200 tons to 43,000 tons. Most NOx emissions originated from transportation and storage (43.5%), followed by agriculture, forestry and fishing (14.2%), electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply (9.3%), manufacturing (8.0%) and other NACE activities (4.7%). 20.3% of NOx emissions originated from households.
Almost three quarters of PM10 emissions originated from households
In 2016, 14,000 tons of PM10 was emitted into the air, i.e. 2.8% more than in 2015. 9.8% of PM10 emissions originated from manufacturing, 7.5% from transportation and storage, 5.2% from agriculture, forestry and fishing, 2.6% from electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply, and 1.8% in other NACE activities.
72.1% of PM10 emissions originated from households, of which 90.4% (65.2% of the total) from heating and cooling.
In 2016 the highest increase in PFC emissions
Compared to 2015 a decrease was recorded only in SOx and SF6 emissions (by 11.0% and 0.3%, respectively). On the other hand, the highest increase was recorded in PFC (by 25.7%) and NOx (4.5%) emissions.
