Fluorinated greenhouse gases (f-gases) covered by the UNFCCC’s Kyoto Protocol comprise hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs) and sulphur hexafluoride (SF6).
The graphs present the quantities of f-gases reported under different type of activities for years 2007-2011, based on the information submitted by undertakings under Regulation (EC) No 842/2006 (F-Gas Regulation). In cases where less than three companies have reported for the particular year on the specific type of gases, or where there is a lack of detailed information, the aggregated quantities are provided in the 'Unspecified mix of f-gases' totals.
Anything you pour down your drain, sink or toilet can eventually end up in our rivers or sea! Never dispose of liquids such as oils, grease, or hazardous liquids – like paint thinners or unused paint – by pouring them down the drain. Instead, collect them in one box and dispose with the rest of your waste. Keep them all in their individual packaging, to avoid possible chemical reactions. This will also make it easier for them to be identified during waste collection. If applicable, take them to your community collection point.
