Compared to 2016, CO2 emissions increased by 2.5% to 15.6 million tonnes in 2017. In the same period, the emissions of particulate matter PM10 decreased by 2.5% to 13,600 tonnes.
2.5% more CO2 emissions than in the previous year
15.6 million tonnes of CO2 emissions were generated in 2017, which is a 2.5% increse over the previous year. Compared to the previous year, in 2017 production and service activities generated 3.9% more CO2 emissions, while households generated 2.2% less emissions.
70.5% of PM10 emissions generated in households
13,600 tonnes of PM10 emissions were generated in 2017, which is a 2.5% decrease over the previous year; PM10 emissions from production and service activities were 5.1% higher, while PM10 emissions from households were lower by 5.3%. 12.1% of PM10 emissions originated from manufacturing (C), 5.4% from agriculture, forestry and fishing (A), 3.2% from electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply (D), 1.4% from transportation and storage (H) and 7.5% from all other NACE activities. 70.4% of PM10 emissions originated from households, of which 88.9% (62.7% of the total) from heating and cooling.
NOx emissions lower by 6.5%
NOx emissions in 2017 decreased by 6.5% compared to 2016 (to 39,100 tonnes); from production and service activities by 6.9% and from households by 5.4%. Most NOx emissions originated from manufacturing and service activities (73.0%) and a smaller share (27.0%) from households.
In 2017 highest increase in SOx emissions
Compared to 2016, SOx emissions were higher by 5.1%, CO2 emissions by 2.5% and HFC emissions by 1.5%. Other emissions decreased in 2017; the highest decrease (by 11.8%) was recorded in PFC emissions.
Compared to 2008, CO2 emissions decreased by 17.1%, SOx emissions by 66.7%
Compared to 2008, in 2017 CO2 emission decreased by 17.1%; in production and service activities by 18.2% and in households by 13.0%.
During this period, SOx emissions decreased the most (by 66.7%). A signicicant decrease was also recorded in NOx (by 43.5%), NMVOC (by 27.9%) and CO (by 22.3%) emissions. PM10 emissions decreased by 18.0%. On the other hand, some emissions increased; HFC by 62.5%, PFC by 18.4% and N2O by 1.8%.
Emissions and the growth index, Slovenia
1) Data on CO2 emissions from biomass are shown seperately, since the international organizations do not add them to amounts of greenhouse gas emissions.
2) In CO2 equivalents.
In 2019, data on greenhouse gas and pollutant emissions from road transport were revised on the basis of a new data source.
Hence, road transport emissions were allocated to all NACE Rev. 2 activities, not only to NACE H49, N77, O84, P85, Q86, S96 and "household - transport", as shown before. The new allocation applies to the entire time series from 2008 onwards.
