EDGAR v5.0 Global Air Pollutant Emissions

EDGARv5.0 provides emissions not only for the greenhouse gases per sector and country but also for the air pollutants:
- Ozone precursor gases: Carbon Monoxide (CO), Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), Non-Methane Volatile Organic Compounds (NMVOC) and Methane (CH4).
- Acidifying gases: Ammonia (NH3), Nitrogen oxides (NOx) and Sulfur Dioxide (SO2).
- Primary particulates: Fine Particulate Matter (PM10 and PM2.5 and Carbonaceous speciation (BC, OC).

Emissions from large scale biomass burning with Savannah burning, forest fires, and sources and sinks from land-use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF) are excluded.

For the energy related sectors the activity data are mainly based on the energy balance statistics of IEA (2017) (Internet: http://www.oecd-ilibrary.org/energy/co2-emissions-from-fuel-combustion-2017_co2_fuel-2017-en), whereas the activity data for the agricultural sectors originate mainly from FAO (2018) (Internet: http://www.fao.org/faostat/en/#home). Additional information can be found in Crippa et al. (2019).

Novelties compared to previous EDGAR release (EDGARv4.3.2 (Crippa et al., 2018)) are: - new temporal profiles to compute monthly and hourly emissions (Crippa et al., 2020, in press),
- new spatial proxies to distribute population-related emissions based on the Global Human Settlements Layer product (Pesaresi et al., 2019),
- updates in the technologies, emission factors and end-of-pipe reductions for the power generation sector (for Europe, China and USA) based on the Platts 2018 database, and the implementation of the regulation taking place in these regions,
- updates in the technologies, emission factors and end-of-pipe reductions for the road transport sector (for Europe only). These updates are based on the EMISIA 2018 data,
-Estimates of particulate matter emissions from road surface wear and road vehicle tyre and break wear based on the EMEP/EEA guidebook 2019 Tier 1 approach (https://www.eea.europa.eu/publications/emep-eea-guidebook-2019).

Conditions of emission data use and code of conduct Users of the data are obliged to acknowledge the source of the data with a reference to the EDGARv5.0 air pollutant website (https://edgar.jrc.ec.europa.eu/overview.php?v=50_AP) to Crippa et al. (2019) and to the DOI (https://data.europa.eu/doi/10.2904/JRC_DATASET_EDGAR).
Co-authorship and involvement of the EDGAR Team in the emission data analysis is highly appreciated. User’s comments and requests can be sent via email to the authors.

 

Timeseries 1970-2015

For each substance, emission timeseries (1970-2015) by sector and country are provided in an overview table (.xls).

Notes:
Emission country totals are expressed in kt substance / year.
The IPCC 1996 and 2006 codes are used for specification of the sectors.

 

 

Annual gridmaps 1970-2015

For each substance annual gridmaps (1970-2015) are provided.

Notes:
Emission gridmaps are expressed in t substance / 0.1degree x 0.1degree / year for the .txt files and in kg substance /m2 /s for the .nc files.

 

 

Annual sector-specific gridmaps (1970-2015) [and monthly sector-specific gridmaps (2015) cooming soon]

For each sector annual gridmaps (1970-2015) are provided for all substances.
For each sector monthly gridmaps (2015) are provided for all substances.

Notes:
Emission gridmaps are expressed in t substance / 0.1degree x 0.1degree / year for annual .txt files and in kg substance /m2 /s for all the .nc files.
The IPCC 1996 and 2006 codes are used for specification of the sectors.
