Dit is een dataset die landelijk dekkend is. De data heeft betrekking op heel Nederland.


Statistics Netherlands has switched to a new classification of emission sources. The table contains annual figures on the emissions of a number of air pollutants in the Netherlands as calculated according to the European NEC guidelines. In 2001, the European Parliament and the Council of Europe drew up a directive on national emission ceilings for cross-border air pollution. The directive is simply called the NEC directive. NEC stands for 'National Emission Ceilings'. Until 2020, the directive determined for each Member State the maximum amount of a number of air pollutants that could be emitted annually. As of 2020, the system of national emission ceilings has been replaced by one of national emission reduction obligations. The guidelines relate to sulphur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), ammonia (NH3), volatile organic compounds excluding methane (NMVOC) and particulate matter PM2.5 (particles with a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometres). The emissions, expressed in kilograms, are broken down by NEC sectors: Energy, Transport, Industry, Agriculture, Waste and Other stationary and mobile sources.

Data available from: 1990. Due to insufficient data quality, the years 1991 to 1994 and 1996 to 1999 are not shown.

Status of the figures: The figures from 1990 to 2022 are final. In order to obtain a consistent time series the complete data set is (re)calculated when necessary, so as to be able to include the latest insights in the survey, especially in the case of emission factors.

Changes as of 23 February 2024: None, this is a new table. This table is the successor to the table Emissions of air pollutants according to NEC guidelines, 1990-2021.

When will new figures be available? Provisional figures for 2023 will be published in September 2024.
