Figure D source code Changes in Phosphorus balance and GVA of agriculture in Europe 2000–2008 (EU16 + Norway)
The chart displays changes in emission of phosphorus from agriculture (expressed as phosphorus balance, P-balance) , and the economic output of agriculture and related services and activities expressed as the gross value added (GVA) in Europe between 2000 and 2008. Changes are expressed in %, where values for 2000=100 %.

Figure Nutrients emission intensity of manufacturing industries in Europe between 2004-2010
The chart displays changes in nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus) emission intensity of manufacturing industry between 2004 and 2010. Nutrient emission intensity is expressed as kilogram of nutrients equivalent (P) discharged in water per unit of production of manufacturing industries (expressed as one million Euro gross value added). See Methodology section for more details.

Figure Decoupling of nutrients emission in water from gross value added in manufacturing industries in Europe between 2004 and 2010
The chart displays changes in emission of nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus) from manufacturing industries in water (expressed in kg of nutrients (P) equivalents) , and in production of manufacturing industries (expressed as the gross value added GVA, in millions Euro) in Europe between 2004 and 2010. See Methodology section for more details.

Figure Attainment situation for CO, reference years 2010, 2005, 2001
The graphs are based on the 8-hourly mean concentration values; they present the range of concentrations at all station types (in mg/m3) officially reported by the EU Member States and how the concentrations relate to the limit value set by EU legislation (marked by the red line). The diagram indicates the lowest and highest observations, the means and the lower and upper quartiles. The lower quartile splits the lowest 25 % of the data and the upper quartile splits the highest 25 % of the data.

Figure Heavy metals emission intensity of metal industry in Europe between 2004 and 2009
The chart displays changes in heavy metals emission intensity of metal industry between 2004 and 2009. Heavy metals emission intensity is expressed as kilogram of heavy metals equivalent discharged in water (weighted according to toxicity) per unit of production of metal industry (expressed as one million Euro gross value added). See Methodology section for more details.

Figure Sectoral shares of acidifying pollutants (SO2, NOx, NH3; energy and non-energy components) of total emissions, EEA-32. Values within the segments indicate the level of emissions (kt) emitted from each sector.
The emissions of acidifying pollutants (sulphur dioxide SO2, nitrogen oxides NOx and ammonia NH3) are each weighted by an acid equivalency factor prior to aggregation to represent their respective acidification potentials. The acid equivalency factors are given by: w(SO2) = 2/64 acid eq/g = 31.25 acid eq/kg, w(NOx) = 1/46 acid eq/g = 21.74 acid eq/kg and w(NH3) = 1/17 acid eq/g = 58.82 acid eq/kg.

Figure Overall change in emissions of acidifying substances by country, 1990-2007
The graph shows the change in emissions of acidifying pollutants (sulphur dioxide SO2, nitrogen oxides NOx and ammonia NH3) each weighted by an acid equivalency factor prior to aggregation to represent their respective acidification potentials. The acid equivalency factors are given by: w(SO2) = 2/64 acid eq/g = 31.25 acid eq/kg, w(NOx) = 1/46 acid eq/g = 21.74 acid eq/kg and w(NH3) = 1/17 acid eq/g = 58.82 acid eq/kg.

Figure Changes (%) in emissions of primary and secondary PM10 particles by source category, 1990-2007, EEA-32 (weighted by particle formation factors)
The graph shows the emissions of primary PM10 particles (particulate matter with a diameter of 10 μm or less, emitted directly into the atmosphere) and secondary particulate-forming pollutants (the fraction of sulphur dioxide, SO2, nitrogen oxides NOx and ammonia NH3 which, as a result of photo-chemical reactions in the atmosphere, transform into particulate matter with a diameter of 10μm or less). 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 (NH3) = 0.64

Figure Sectoral shares of primary and secondary particulate matter in total emissions, EEA-32
The graph includes the combined emissions of primary PM10 particles (particulate matter with a diameter of 10 μm or less, emitted directly into the atmosphere) and secondary particulate-forming pollutants (the fraction of sulphur dioxide, SO2, nitrogen oxides NOx and ammonia NH3 which, as a result of photo-chemical reactions in the atmosphere, transform into particulate matter with a diameter of 10μm or less). 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 (NH3) = 0.64.

Figure Emissions intensity of carbon dioxide from public conventional thermal power production
Emissions intensity is calculated as the amount of pollutant produced (in tonnes) from public electricity and heat production divided by the output of electricity and heat (in toe) from these plants.
