Emissions of ozone precursors, EU15

Figure Created 12 Nov 2009 Published 12 Nov 2009 Last modified 29 Nov 2012, 11:37 AM
The targets for 2010 are the Gothenburg Protocol target (December 1999) and the more recent National Emission Ceilings Directive (NECD) Common Position targets (June 2000) for non-methane volatile organic compounds and nitrogen oxides

Additional information

Carbon monoxide has been included in the 2010 target lines assuming emissions remain constant from 1998. Weighting factors are used to derive tropospheric ozone-forming potentials (TOFP) so that emissions can be combined in terms of their contribution to tropospheric ozone: nitrogen oxides 1.22, non-methane volatile organic compounds 1.0, carbon monoxide 0.11 and methane 0.014.
