PRTR Non-point source emissions

The website presents information on non-point source PRTR releases in Finland. Non-point source releases cover activities that do not exceed the reporting thresholds set to reporting under the European PRTR in the industry, energy production, agriculture and waste sectors, as well as activities like transport and product use. Finnish PRTR facilities reports are available through the E-PRTR website.

 

Methodology

The non-point source emissions are calculated as the difference between the total national emissions and data reported under the E-PRTR. For air pollutant emissions, emission data reported under the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution (UNECE CLRTAP) and the EU National Emission Ceilings Directive (2001/71/EC, NECD) are used, while to calculate greenhouse gas emissions, emission data reported under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) are used.

Non-point source air emissions

Non-point source air pollutant emissions for year 2007-2015 are presented in Table 1 above.

In table 1:  Mg =103kg = t ; Gg = 106kg = kt; g I-Teq = g International Toxic Equivalent

 

Greenhouse gases are presented in Table 2. Previous years 2007-2014 for greenhouse gases are presented in Non-point source greenhouse gas emissions 2007-2014. Emission data reported by 15.3.2017 to the EU is used for 2015 emissions.
