Total and sectoral energy-related emissions of primary and secondary PM10 particulate matter emissions, EU-25 (weighted using particle formation factors)
Emissions of the secondary particulate precursor species are weighted by a particle formation factor prior to aggregation: primary PM10 = 1, SO2 = 0.54, NOx = 0.88, and w(NH3) = 0.64 (de Leeuw, 2002). Particulate matter arising from NH3 is included in the totals under Non-Energy related emissions. Values of PM10 reported by Portugal appear to be reported using incorrect units, being 1000 times lower in magnitude than would be expected and so have been adjusted.
