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).
