CO2 emissions from fuel combustion Part III: Total Greenhouse Gas Emissions; 2015 Edition

25-11-2015 | Publication

To show the changes in energy-related CO2 emission in response to economic and policy developments, the annual reference publication “CO2 emissions from fuel combustion” by the International Energy Agency (IEA) describes the trends in global CO2 emissions from fuel combustion per country and sector from 1971 to 2013. In addition, Part III of this report shows data for CO2 from non-energy-related sources and gas flaring and emissions of CH4, N2O, HFC, PFC and SF6, which have been provided by the PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency and the European Commission’s  Joint Research Centre of the (EC-JRC).

The information in Part III (with the exception of CO2 emissions from fuel combustion) has been provided by the PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency and the European Commission‘s Joint Research Centre (EC-JRC), using the Emission Database for Global Atmospheric Research (EDGAR) version 4.3.0 for CO2 emissions  and version 4.2FT2010 for non-CO2 emissions, developed jointly by JRC and PBL.

The data in this book are designed to increase the understanding of the evolution of emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases from 1971 to 2010/2013, for more than 140 countries and regions, per sector and per fuel.
