The targets for 2010 are the Gothenburg Protocol target (December 1999) and the more recent NECD Common Position targets (June 2000) for the EU and countries for sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and ammonia

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.
