Past trends in and distance to target for residual municipal waste

The chart puts together the trends (2004-2020) and projections (2020-2030) in both total and residual municipal waste for EU-27, for the case in which the 60% recycling rate target of 2030 would be met. A comparison with the residual target allows for some insight on the distance of the projections to the actual target.

Consumption of chemical groups in the EU, 2004-2020, indexed to 2004

This shows consumption of three groups of chemicals: total, hazardous to health, hazardous to the environmnent.

Industrial releases of pollutants to water and economic activity in the EU-27, 2010-2020

The figure shows the trend of pollutant releases into water in the EU-27 from 2010 to 2020 by using 2010 releases values as reference. In addition, gross value added (GVA) from the industry sector is presented.

Amount of total waste (excluding major mineral waste) sent to landfill in the EU, 2010-2018

The figure shows absolute amount, in million tonnes, of waste, excluding major mineral waste, generated and deposited in landfills for the EU-27 as well as the share of generated waste that is landfilled.

Total waste generation in the EU (excluding major mineral waste), indexed to 2010, and compared with GDP, 2010-2020

Figure shows indexed values of waste generation per capita and gross domestic product (GDP) with year 2010 as a reference year (2010=100%). Production phase shows generation of total waste and waste excluding major mineral wastes. GDP was chosen as a basic indicator of the economic growth as it expresses the total value of goods and services produced in the country (the components of GDP include personal consumption expenditures plus business investment plus government spending plus (exports minus imports)).

SOLUTIONS project output simulating the impact of chemical mixtures on a potentially affected fraction of species (msPAF) and highlighting regions where there could be significant chemical pollution pressure on freshwater species

This map shows a mixture toxicity metric called multi-substance Potentially Affected Fraction of species (msPAF). For individual substances, the Potentially Affected Fraction of species (PAF) is derived from the results from laboratory toxicity tests, as the fraction of the tested species that would show effects if a laboratory test would be performed with a given concentration of the chemical. To this end, the results from laboratory tests have been converted beforehand into a species sensitivity distribution (SSD). The individual PAFs are then combined into an msPAF using the dose-addition principle. For this map, toxicity tests have been used that seek to quantify the no-observed-effect concentration (NOEC). The use of this endpoint links the result to the regulatory concept of “sufficient protection” of aquatic ecosystems. The above has been applied to the simulated concentrations of 1,785 chemicals on 365 consecutive days, and the 95 percentile of the results per site have been mapped.

Assessment of Good Environmental Status for MSFD Descriptor 8 Contaminants (UPBT substances), 2018

The map gives and overview of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) Regions and Subregions that achieved a good environmental status (GES) for Descriptor 8, feature Contaminants (UPBT substances), resulting from the 2018 Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) Art. 8 reporting exercise. The map is extracted from the "2018 reporting of MSFD Article 8 – assessment of good environmental status (GES) per country or marine region/subregion" dashboard, excluding the seabed only areas (marine areas extending over 200nm from the coastline)

Assessment of marine litter in all four regional seas, 2010-2021

The map shows the results of a preliminary classification and identification of ‘non-problem areas’ and ‘potential problem areas’ with respect to marine litter in Europe’s Seas, using the prototype Marine Litter Assessment Tool (MALT), a multi-metric indicator-based status assessment tool. Please see the European Topic Centre (ETC) report "Marine Litter in Europe - An integrated assessment from source to sea".

Contamination of Europe’s seas

The map shows the results of classification of Contamination Status using the CHASE+tool. The contamination status is classified as ‘non-problem areas’ or ‘problem areas’.

Percentage of groundwater stations in each country exceeding the drinking water standard (50mg of nitrates per litre) during the last two reporting periods, 2012-2015 and 2016-2019, under the Nitrates Directive

The figure shows the percentage of groundwater stations in each EU country and the EU level, exceeding the drinking water standard (50 mg of nitrates per litre) during the last two reporting periods under the Nitrates Directive

Nutrients in water bodies in the EU-27

The figure shows aggregated time series for monitoring sites (surface waters) or water bodies (groundwater). Only complete time series are included. The selected time series are aggregated by averaging across all sites for each year.

Nutrient levels in European seas, 2012 - 2017

Results of classification of Eutrophication Status using the HEAT+ tool. Eutrophication status is evaluated in five classes, where NPAhigh and NPAgood are recognised as ‘non-problem areas’ and PAmoderate, PApoor and PAbad are recognised as ‘problem areas’.

EU methane emissions (Mt) based on various IPCC global warming potentials, 2020

The figure shows the 100-year Global Warming Potential (GWPs) of CH₄ from the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) Assessment Report 2, 4 and 5 (AR2, AR4, AR5), together with the AR5’s 20-year GWP. The 100-year values are used to allow comparison with other greenhouse gases (GHGs) reported in the inventories and have been agreed by the Parties for reporting under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement.
