Recalculations - Sulphur Oxides

Last updated on 30 Aug 2017 16:54 (cf. Authors)

Changes in the annual over-all SOx emissions result mainly from revisions in NFR 1 (1990-1999, 2009-2014).
Here, the biggest relative changes occur in NFR 2 (1991-1994), NFR 1 (2010-2014) and NFR 5 (2014 only, no impact on National Total).

Changes reported for the 1990 National Total (+173 kt | +3.3 %) result mainly from significant changes in emission estimates for NFRs 1.A.4.i and 1.A.4.b i.
Additional, but less significant changes occur in NFR 2.

Changes reported for the 2014 National Totals (-31.2 kt | -8.04 %) result mainly from significant changes in emission estimates for NFRs 1.A.4.i and 1.A.4.b i.
Additional, but less significant changes occur in NFRs 2 and 5.
