Air pollutant emissions data viewer (LRTAP Convention)
The air pollutant emissions data viewer (LRTAP Convention) provides access of the data contained in the EU emission inventory report 1990-2012 under the UNECE Convention on LRTAP.

Highlight Air pollution still harming Europe's ecosystems, despite reduced emissions
Emissions of nitrogen-containing pollutants continue to harm sensitive ecosystems, according to two new reports published today by the European Environment Agency (EEA). Nonetheless, both reports show a marked improvement over the last two decades.

Indicator Assessment Emissions of acidifying substances (CSI 001/APE 007) - Assessment published Jan 2014
Emissions of the acidifying pollutants, nitrogen oxides (NO X ), sulphur oxides (SO X ) and ammonia (NH 3 ), have decreased significantly in most of the individual EEA member countries between 1990 and 2011. Emissions of SO X  have decreased by 74%, NO X  by 44% and NH 3  by 25% since 1990 within the EEA-33. Data reported under the NECD indicates that in 2011 the EU-28 as a whole met its continuing obligation to maintain emissions of NO X , SO X  and NH 3  below 2010 target as specified by the EU’s National Emissions Ceiling Directive (NECD). However, the EU-15 as a whole and seven individual Member States, all of which are in the EU-15 group, reported emissions in 2011 above their NECD emission ceilings for NO X . Four EU member states reported 2011 NH 3  emissions above the levels of their NECD ceilings, three of which are in the group of fifteen pre-2004 EU member states. Three additional countries which are current EEA Member States have emission ceilings for 2010 under the UNECE/CLRTAP Gothenburg protocol (Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland). Both Liechtenstein and Norway reported NO X  and NH 3  emissions in 2011 that were higher than their respective 2010 ceilings.

Daviz Visualization Distance-to-target for sulphur oxides
The distance-to-target indicator shows how current emissions compare to a linear emission reduction 'target-path' between 2010 emission levels and the 2020 Gothenburg emission ceiling for each country. Negative percentage values indicate the current emissions in a country are below the linear target path; positive values show that current emission lie above a linear target path to 2020.
