EEA aggregated and gap-filled air emission dataset, based on 2012 officially reported national total and sectoral emissions to UNECE LRTAP Convention.
EEA standard re-use policy: unless otherwise indicated, re-use of content on the EEA website for commercial or non-commercial purposes is permitted free of charge, provided that the source is acknowledged (http://www.eea.europa.eu/legal/copyright).

Reported national totals for Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Lithuania, Malta and Poland do not match reported sectoral data. For consistency, sectoral data has therefore been used to calculate the national totals.
On very hot days use public transport rather than your car.
Car exhaust emissions react with sunlight and heat to cause polluting gases such as tropospheric ozone. This is the main ingredient of poor air quality and photo-chemical smog, which can cause breathing difficulties. To find out the level of ozone pollution across Europe, go to EEA's Live Ozone Map.
