Changes (%) in emissions of ozone precursors by source category, 1990-2006, EU-27 (weighted by tropospheric ozone formation potential)

Figure Created 24 Mar 2009 Published 24 Mar 2009 Last modified 29 Nov 2012
Topics: ,
The graph above shows the emissions of ozone precursors (methane CH4; carbon monoxide CO; non-methane volatile organic compounds NMVOCs; and nitrogen oxides NOx) each weighted by a factor prior to aggregation to represent their respective tropospheric ozone formation potential (TOFP)


European data


Additional information

The TOFP factors are: NOx 1.22, NMVOC 1, CO 0.11 and CH4 0.014 (de Leeuw 2002). Results are expressed in NMVOC equivalents (kilotonnes - kt).
