The European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (E-PRTR) is a web-based register established by Regulation (EC) No 166/2006 which implements the UNECE PRTR Protocol. Article 8 of the Regulation requires the Commission with support from the EEA to have information on releases from diffuse sources where such information exists.

The set of 32 maps shows the distribution of air pollutant emissions from diffuse sources. The data is based on a scale of 5 by 5 km grid and includes details of nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulphur oxides (SOx), carbon monoxide (CO), ammonia (NH3), carbon dioxide (CO2) and particulate matter (PM10). It complements existing data on emissions from individual industrial plants included in the European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (E-PRTR).
