EDGARv6.1 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 (2019) (Internet: link), whereas the activity data for the agricultural sectors originate mainly from FAO (2020) (Internet: link).
Novelties of EDGARv6.1 compared to the previous EDGARv5.0 release are:
updates of all activity data up to 2018 new international shipping proxies and monthly profiles (Jalkanen et al. (2012), Johansson et al. (2017)) updates of road transport technology penetration and emission factors (Muntean et al., in prep, 2022) for combustion and evaporative emissions inclusion of NMVOC emissions from agricultural soils
