The three sectors largely responsible for air emissions are: energy production, especially electricity production; road traffic and industry.

Combustion for energy, especially electricity production, is of particular relevance. Figure 4 indicates that overall electricity consumption has grown over the past five years at an annual rate of 4.46 %. The high growth rate is due to re-starting of the ferro-nickel, ferro-silicon and the steel industry, all major consumers of electricity.

Industrial electricity consumption is significant and rather variable. Variations in electricity consumption correspond with oscillations in the steel and ferro-alloy industry. Such oscillations are shown on Figures 4.
