European data


Additional information

TOC, total organic carbon; Total N, total nitrogen; Total P, total phosphorous; Cd, cadmium; Hg, mercury; Ni, nickel; Pb, lead.

Croatia joined the EU in June 2013, therefore, the comparison is made against 2014 emissions.

Countries that have not reported  2020 data are not included in this figure (Germany, Lithuania, Italy, Malta, Slovakia). Estonia reported data under E-PRTR without including any water releases.

A white cell indicates that either 2010 or 2020 data were not reported.
