This chart shows past emission trends of ammonia in the EEA-32 and EU-27 group of countries. In addition - for the EU-27 - the 2010 emission ceiling and aggregated projections reported by Member States are shown.
The 'with measures' (WM) projections reported by Member States take into account currently implemented and adopted policies and measures. Where countries have instead reported 'business as usual' or 'current legislation' projections, it is assumed for comparison purposes that these are equivalent to a WM projection.
Iceland has reported 'NR' for the full time-series.
