CO2 emissions from fuel combustion Part III: Total Greenhouse Gas Emissions; 2017 Edition

17-10-2017 | Publication

CO2 emissions from fuel combustion represent the majority of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. To complement work regarding the emissions of CO2 from fuel combustion, the International Energy Agency (IEA) also included EDGAR data on other CO2 sources and on five other greenhouse gases; methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O) and the fluorinated gases (or “F-gases”) HFCs, PFCs and SF6 in this annual reference publication.

The information in Part III (with the exception of CO2 emissions from fuel combustion) has been provided by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission and the PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency, using the Emission Database for Global Atmospheric Research (EDGAR) database (version 4.3.2 for CO2 , CH4 and N2O emissions and 4.2FT2010 for the F-gases) developed jointly by JRC and PBL.
