Additional information

Weighting factors are used to derive acid equivalent so that emissions of sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and NH 3 can be combined in terms of their acidifying effect: sulphur dioxide * 1 / 32 , nitrogen dioxide * 1 / 46 and ammonia * 1 / 17 . The emission data for Spain exclude emissions from Spanish overseas territories. targets.
