Gap filling performed to ensure quality:

Czechia 2021 gap filled with 2020 data due to missing reporting, 
Lithuania and Malta 2020 and 2021 gap filled with 2019 data due to missing reporting, 
Slovakia 2018-2021, gap filled with 2017 data for missing reporting, 
Netherlands 2021 NOₓ corrected due a comma separator mistake in reporting.

 Data on large combustion plants covered by the Large Combustion Plants Directive (until 2015) and the Industrial Emissions Directive (as from 2016).

Data from Croatia only available as from 2009, while its influence in the overall EU-27 numbers is negligible.
