The set of 32 maps shows the distribution of air pollutant emissions from diffuse sources. The data is based on a scale of 5 by 5 km grid and includes details of nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulphur oxides (SOx), carbon monoxide (CO), ammonia (NH3), carbon dioxide (CO2) and particulate matter (PM10). It complements existing data on emissions from individual industrial plants included in the European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (E-PRTR).
Switching off five lights in hallways and rooms in your house – when you don't need them – can save around EUR 60 a year! This prevents the release of approximately 400 kg of CO2 gas in one year.
