E-PRTR Summary report 2014
based on EEA database of 3 May 2016
1. Executive Summary
E-PRTR covers 33 countries (EU-28; plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland and Serbia1) and
the data for the reporting years from 2007 to 2014. For 2014 all 33 countries submitted their E-PRTR
data, but completeness and consistency of submitted data differs across the countries.
The total number of E-PRTR facilities reported for the year 2014 amounted to 33 0842. This
represents an increase of about 2% in the total number of facilities for all countries compared to
2013 and increase of 25% compared to 2007. The total number of release and transfer reports for
the year 2014 amounted to 102 523 reports which is an increase of about 1% compared to 2013 and
increase about 19% compared to 2007. The increased number of facilities and release reports in the
E-PRTR system seem to indicate improved completeness of reporting by most of the countries. The
consistency and completeness of the reporting is linked to the performance of the countries.
Countries reported data for 44 out of the 45 E-PRTR main activities. The only activity where no data
has been reported in 2014 is 3.(d) Installations for the production of asbestos and the manufacture of
asbestos-based products. On average, countries provided data on 28 activities with smaller countries
reporting fewer than ten activities (Iceland, Malta, Liechtenstein) and larger countries reporting 40 or
more activities (France, Germany, Spain and United Kingdom).
All countries except Liechtenstein (32) submitted release reports to air. Fifty-six pollutants were
reported as releases to air for 2014 compared to 55 pollutants for 2013. In general, countries
reported between 6 and 45 pollutants as releases to air. The following pollutants with a threshold for
air were not reported under E-PRTR 2014: Heptachlor, Lindane, Mirex and Toxaphene. Some
pollutants have a restrictive ban of use and production within EEA countries according to
international regulations/directives and therefore reporting becomes rare.
All countries except for Liechtenstein submitted release reports to water. Releases of 71 pollutants
were reported for E-PRTR 2014 compared to 66 pollutants for E-PRTR 2013. The most commonly
reported pollutants were Total organic carbon, Total phosphorus, Total nitrogen and Heavy metals.
Releases of banned pollutants such as Aldrin, Asbestos, DDT, Dieldrin, Endrin, Heptachlor,
Chlorfenvinphos, Chlorpyrifos and Ethylene oxide were reported by only one country, respectively.
The following (mostly banned) pollutants with a threshold for water were not reported as releases to
water: Chlordane, Endosulphan and Mirex.
Twenty -six countries reported transfers of pollutants in wastewater for 2014. Fifty out of the 71
pollutants with a threshold for releases to water in Annex II of the E-PRTR Regulation were reported
as transfers of pollutants in wastewater for 2014 compared to 54 pollutants for 2013. The most
commonly reported pollutants were the same as for releases to water.
Only five countries (Bulgaria, Germany, France, Italy and Slovakia) out of 33 reported releases to land
in 2014. Out of the 61 pollutants with a threshold for releases to land in Annex II of the E-PRTR
Regulation only 13 were reported under E-PRTR 2014 as releases to land compared to 14 pollutants
under E-PRTR 2013 and 22 pollutants under E-PRTR 2007.

E-PRTR Summary report 2014
based on EEA database of 3 May 2016
Since the first reporting round for 2007 the reporting on releases to land has been decreasing in
terms of countries reporting on it as well as in terms of the number of pollutants reported on. This is
due to different interpretation of the scope by the European Commission and Member States.
Further clarification of the scope of the reporting obligation is ongoing.
All 33 countries reported transfers of waste. In total, 18 796 facilities reported domestic transfers of
hazardous waste, 1 473 facilities reported transboundary transfers of hazardous waste and 12 712
facilities reported transfers of non-hazardous waste. The total quantity of waste reported for the
year 2014 by all countries increased to about 574 million tonnes compared to 487 million tonnes
reported for 2013. Hazardous waste transferred within the country amounted to about 49.6 million
tonnes (8.6% of total) and hazardous waste transferred outside the country to about 3.65 million
tonnes (0.6% of total) in the year 2014. The quantity of non-hazardous waste transfers accounted
for about 521 million tonnes in 2014 (about 90% of total).
Eight countries (Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, Romania, Switzerland and the
United Kingdom) reported confidential data for 2014. The most common reasons for keeping
information confidential were Article (4)(2)(d) and (f) of Directive 2003/4/EC3, which refer to the
confidentiality of commercial or industrial information and to the confidentiality of personal data,
respectively.
Nineteen countries reported accidental releases for 2014 as well as for 2013. In total, 604 accidental
releases were reported for the year 2014 (336 into air, 267 into water 267 and 6 into land). The
number of accidental releases does not change significantly across years.
The analysis of the 2014 E-PRTR identified facilities contributing by more than 30% to E-PRTR total
quantities for diverse pollutants. Such release reports should be checked and, if applicable, corrected
by countries. The next chance for the countries to re-submit E-PRTR data will be until 17th of May
2016.
The present summary report shows time series of the reported pollutants and of the waste
transfers from 2007 to 2014. Some figures do not reflect real trends of quantities of the pollutant
releases/transfers but might indicate erroneous reporting. For example the time series of releases of
heavy metals to air and water show inconsistent time series which seem to indicate non-reporting in
some years and/or outliers.

2. Background and objectives
2.1. E-PRTR Regulation
According to Regulation (EC) No 166/2006 concerning the establishment of a European Pollutant
Release and Transfer Register (E-PRTR) operators that undertake one or more activities specified in
Annex I of the Regulation above the capacity threshold have to report their releases to air, water,
land, off-site transfers of waste and transfers of pollutants in wastewater if these releases and
transfers exceed the thresholds specified in Annex II of the Regulation. Member States are obliged to
submit this data to the European Commission. E-PRTR is an annual reporting obligation, 2014 was the
eighth reporting year. As requested by Article 14 of the Regulation the European Commission drew
up a Guidance Document4, which supports the implementation of the E-PRTR by addressing, among
other things, the coding of activities, reporting procedures and the data to be reported. The full
dataset is published on the E-PRTR website http://prtr.ec.europa.eu/.
The E-PRTR implements at EU level the UNECE PRTR Protocol5, which was signed by the European
Community and 23 Member States in Kiev in May 2003 and which is a Protocol to the Aarhus
Convention6. The E-PRTR succeeds the European Pollutant Emission Register (EPER), under which
data were reported for the years 20017 and 2004.
2.2. Scope
The E-PRTR Summary report 2014 covers 33 countries the EU-28 (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia,
Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary Ireland, Italy,
Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia,
Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom) plus 5 EEA cooperating countries (Norway, Iceland,
Liechtenstein, Switzerland and Serbia). Serbia provided PRTR data for the reporting years 2009 to
2014 only. Croatia submitted 2014 PRTR data in 2016 for the first time.
The E-PRTR Regulation (No 166/2006/EC)8 lists 91 pollutants in its Annex II; 59 of these concern
releases to air, 71 releases to water and transfers in water and 61 releases to land. For each of
these pollutants threshold values are defined. If a facility exceeds these threshold values, the
release/transfer must be reported. The pollutants are grouped as follows: chlorinated organic
substances, greenhouse gases, heavy metals, inorganic substances, other gases (include CLRTAP main
pollutants), other organic substances, pesticides.
The reporting of carbon dioxide (CO2) under E-PRTR requires the reporting of the total mass of CO2
which indicates that CO2 including releases from biomass have to be reported. In addition, countries
have been given the possibility to report releases of CO2 excluding biomass on a voluntary basis (not
included in Annex II of the E-PRTR Regulation).

E-PRTR Summary report 2014
based on EEA database of 3 May 2016
Facilities are required to report on off-site transfers of waste under the E-PRTR Regulation if the
total transfers of hazardous waste exceed two tonnes or the total transfer of non-hazardous waste
exceeds 2 000 tonnes.
E-PRTR includes 65 activities listed in Annex I of the E-PRTR Regulation. An operator of a facility that
undertakes one or more activities specified in Annex I of the Regulation above the capacity
thresholds shall report pollutant releases and transfers above the pollutant thresholds annually. All
releases occurring in individual facilities are recorded under the main activity. Other activities
appearing in the facility are provided as additional information.
2.3. Objectives
The purpose of this summary report is to present overall statistics of 2014 E-PRTR data, where useful
compared with 2013 data or to show the time series since 2007, plus key findings based on the
overall statistics. The key findings include information on missing pollutants and activities, a list of
potential outliers and selected trends.

3. Overall statistics
The data sources for the following statistics are the official submissions and resubmissions of E-PRTR
data by countries by 15 April 2016. This dataset is not published on the EEA website but has been
made available for E-PRTR data reporters on the E-PRTR review website9.
The countries included in the 2014 dataset are EU-28, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland
and Serbia.
3.1. Facilities
Total number of facilities
The total number of facilities reported to the E-PRTR for the reporting year 2014 amounted to 33 084
facilities (EU-28, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland and Serbia). This represents an increase
of about 2% in the total number of facilities for all countries compared to 32 480 facilities that were
reported for 2013.
Out of the total number of E-PRTR facilities that reported for 2014, 46% are facilities that have
reported for all years since 2007, whereas 43% reported once before but not for all years. About 11%
of the facilities (3 744 facilities) reported the first time in 2014 also including all of the Croatian
facilities reporting for the first time.

E-PRTR Summary report 2014
based on EEA database of 3 May 2016
Number of facilities per medium 2007-2014
Most of the E-PRTR facilities reported transfers of waste, followed by releases to air, releases to
water, pollutant transfers in water and releases to land. From 2007 to 2014, the number of facilities
reporting releases to air and water and waste transfers increased (+0.6, +2.7% and +34%) whereas
the number of facilities reporting releases to land and transfers of pollutants in waste water
decreased (-89% and -10% respectively).
Figure 2:
Number of E-PRTR facilities reporting releases into the different media, 2007-2014
The number of facilities reporting releases to air rose by 1% from 12 047 release reports in 2013 to
12 151 release reports in 2014. Also the number of releases to water, as well as the number of
transfers of waste increased slightly compared to the previous year. The number of transfers in
waste water slightly decreased by 1.1% while the number of releases to land remained the same.

2007 can be observed for the activity ‘Waste and waste water management’, followed by ‘Food and
beverage industries’ (+28%). The number of facilities slightly decreased for the activities ‘Mineral
industry’ (-2%) in the year 2014 compared to 2007 (Figure 4).
The share of the different activities in the overall number of reported facilities remains more or less
the same over the time series. Most of the facilities reported under the main activity ‘Waste and
waste water management’ (31% in 2014), followed by the activity ‘Intensive Livestock production
and aquaculture’ (21%). Only about 3% of the facilities reported under the main activity ‘Paper and
wood industries’.

Changes in number of facilities per activity between 2013 and 2014
The change in number of facilities reported under activity 7.Intensive livestock production and
aquaculture increased by about 5%. For all other activities the variation in number of facilities is
between +/-3% (Figure 5).

3.2. Release/transfer reports 2007-2014
The total number of releases/transfer reports in E-PRTR 2014 amounted to 102 523 reports
compared to 101 541 reports in E-PRTR 2013 (see Table 1), which represents an increase of about
1%. This fairly correlates with the increase in the total number of facilities of about 2% (see chapter
3.1).

Release/transfer reports by country
The total number of release reports per country for 2014 ranges from 16 167 reports from the
United Kingdom to five reports from Liechtenstein (see table below). It has to be pointed out that the
number of facilities in a country does mainly depend on the industrial and economic structure in the
country not only on the country’s size and population.

Release /transfer reports per activity 2014
The following section indicates the contribution of the main activities to releases of selected
pollutants to air, water, transfers in water, land and to transfers of waste see Figure 6 to Figure 10.
The white values in the bars indicate the number of release reports per pollutant.
Countries reported 44 out of the 45 E-PRTR main activities. In 2014, like in previous years, no
facilities reported under activity 3.(d) Installations for the production of asbestos and the
manufacture of asbestos-based products. For all the sub-activities facilities were reported. On
average, countries provided data on 28 activities with some countries reporting fewer than ten
activities (Iceland, Malta, Liechtenstein) and some countries reporting 40 or more activities (France,
Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom) (see Annex I).

3.3. Reporting of pollutants
Number of pollutants per medium
The number of released pollutants reported to air increased by 6% from 53 for the year 2007 to 56
for 2014 (see Figure 11). The number of pollutants released to water slightly increased by 4% from
2007 to 2014, on the other hand the number of pollutants reported to waste water transfers
decreased by about 9%. The number of pollutants reported to land decreased significantly in the
period 2007-2014 (-41%), which was mainly influenced by the reporting of Norway and France. These
two countries had reported most of the releases to land in earlier years but provided no or less data
for the last three years 2012 to 2014.
Figure 11: Number of pollutants reported per medium (air, water, land), 2007- 2014
Releases to air: In general, countries reported between 50 and 56 pollutants as releases to air across
the years 2007-2014. Some pollutants (e.g. the banned pollutants HCB, PER, TCBs, Anthracene, and
Asbestos) were reported by a few facilities only. The following banned pollutants with a threshold for
air were not reported under E-PRTR in any year: Heptachlor, Lindane, Mirex and Toxaphene.
Releases to water: For 71 pollutants with a threshold for water at least one release report was
available in the period 2007-2014. The most frequently reported pollutants were Heavy metals, Total
organic carbon, Total nitrogen and Total phosphorus, with more than 100 release reports each year.
Transfers of pollutants in Wastewater: The number of annually reported pollutants reported as
transfers in wastewater ranges from 50 to 62. The findings are comparable to the ones related to
water releases. Significant differences in the number of reported releases over the time series are
observed for rarely reported pollutants. The following, mostly banned, pollutants with a threshold
for water were not reported as releases to water: Chlordane, Endosulphan, and Mirex.
Releases to land: The number of pollutants reported as releases to land fluctuates across the year
and reporting to land is thus considered incomplete. In particular, between 2012 and 2014 fewer
pollutants were reported to land, which correlated with a slump in the number of release reports to
land by about 80-100% in the period 2007-2014.

Pollutants per country 2014
This section provides a comparison of the number of pollutants reported by individual countries as
releases to air water and land or as transfers in waste water.
Pollutants reported as releases to air
All countries except Liechtenstein reported releases to air. 56 pollutants were reported for 2014
while 55 pollutants have been reported for 2013. Individual countries reported between 6 and 45
pollutants as releases to air (Figure 12).
Figure 12: Number of pollutants reported to air per country for 2014 compared to 2013
Pollutants reported as releases to water
All countries except Liechtenstein submitted release reports to water. Releases of 71 pollutants
were reported for E-PRTR 2014 compared to 68 pollutants for E-PRTR 2013. The total number of
pollutants reported as releases to water ranged from 54 in Italy to zero in Liechtenstein (Figure 13).

Off-site transfers of pollutants in waste water
50 out of the 71 pollutants with a threshold for releases to water in Annex II of the E-PRTR Regulation
were reported as off-site transfers in waste water for E-PRTR 2014 compared to 54 pollutants for EPRTR 2013. The number of pollutants reported by countries as transfers in waste water ranged from
38 for Italy to zero in a number of countries.
Figure 14: Number of pollutants reported as off-site transfers in wastewater for 2014 compared to
2013
Pollutants reported as releases to land
Out of the 61 pollutants with a threshold for releases to land in Annex II of the E-PRTR Regulation 13
were reported under E-PRTR 2014 compared to 14 pollutants under E-PRTR 2013. Most of the
countries do not report any releases to land (Figure 15). France reported releases of nine pollutants,
followed by Germany with eight pollutants. Austria and Greece reported releases to land in 2013 but
not for 2014.

based on EEA database of 3 May 2016
Figure 15: Number of pollutants reported to land per country for 2014 compared to 2013
3.4. Off-site transfers of waste per country 2014
All 33 countries that submitted E-PRTR data for 2014 reported off-site transfers of waste. For the
reporting year 2014, 18 841 facilities reported domestic transfers of hazardous waste, 1 329 facilities
reported transboundary transfers of hazardous waste and 13 017 facilities reported transfers of nonhazardous waste. The total number of facilities reporting off-site transfers of waste for 2014
increased by 1.4% compared to 2013 (see Figure 2).
The total quantity of waste reported under E-PRTR 2014 by all countries was about 574 million
tonnes per year compared to 487 million tonnes under E-PRTR 2013. This represents a significant
increase of about 18% in the total quantity of reported waste.
Non-hazardous waste (NHW)
The quantity of non-hazardous waste transfers accounted for 521 megatonnes per year being 90.7 %
of all waste transfers. The data for Italy includes a potential high outlier, which reported 22.4
megatonnes of non-hazardous waste for 2014 (see Appendix A for details on the facility).

2014
23 / 61
E-PRTR Summary report 2014
based on EEA database of 3 May 2016
Hazardous waste (HW)
For 2014, hazardous waste transferred within the country (HWIC) amounted to about 49.6
megatonnes per year (8.6% of total) and hazardous waste transferred outside the country (HWOC) to
about 3.65 megatonnes per year (0.6 % of total).
It is assumed that the peak of Italy’s value in 2014 is due to potential erroneous reporting of Italy in
2014 (see Appendix A for details on facility).
Figure 17: Quantities of hazardous waste (HW) in megatonnes reported per country for 2014
3.5. Confidentiality10 2013/2014
Eight countries reported confidential data elements for 2014. 68 facilities reported confidential data
related to the facility report, whereas 157 facilities claimed confidentiality on data related to waste
transfer reports. Belgium has the highest share of confidential data related to waste transfer reports
– 136 of 157 in total. Belgium submitted 14 reports less than last year, handling confidential data
related to waste transfer reports. Besides, there were no significant changes between 2014 and 2013
in the reporting of confidential data (Table 4).
The most common reasons for keeping information confidential were Article (4)(2)(d) and (f) of
Directive 2003/4/EC11, which refer to the confidentiality of commercial or industrial information and
to the confidentiality of personal data, respectively.
10
Whenever information is kept confidential by a MS in accordance with Article 4 of Directive 2003/4/EC the MS
shall indicate separately for each facility claiming confidentiality the type of information that has been withheld and
the reason for which it has been withheld.

3.7. Methods used to obtain data 2014
According to the E-PRTR Regulation reporting of “quantities” is carried out based on measurement,
calculation or estimation12 of the releases and off-site transfers. Figure 19 and Figure 20 provide
overview of methods used for selected pollutants.
Releases to air: For CO2, CH4, PM10 and NH3 calculation is the main method, whereas for the other
selected pollutants measurement is the dominant method (see Figure 19). For releases to water
measurement is the dominant method for all selected pollutants with the exception of four
pollutants (the values for Diuron, DEHP and NP/NPES are calculated; the value for As is estimated)
(see Figure 20).
12
Note (European Commission, 2006):
Measurement: If data on releases and off-site transfers of pollutants in waste water is based on measurements,
additional calculations may be needed to convert the results of measurements into annual loads. A list of
internationally approved measurement methods for the release into air and water/off-site transfer of pollutants
in water of the 91 E-PRTR pollutants is set out in Appendix 3 to the E-PRTR Guidance Document for the
implementation of the European PRTR.
Calculation: Release and transfer data can be based on calculations by using calculation methods and release
factors, which are representative for certain pollutants and industrial sectors. Internationally approved
calculation methods can be found in the Guidelines for the monitoring and reporting of greenhouse gas
emissions under the Emission Trading Scheme, the IPCC Guidelines and the EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission
inventory guidebook.
Estimation: In cases where measurement and calculation methods are not available, or in the case of accidents,
data can be based on estimation, i.e. on non-standardised estimations derived from mass balances, best
assumptions or expert guesses.

4. Top polluters 2014
Facilities with a share above 30% of total E-PRTR releases to air, water and waste transfers for
priority pollutants are presented in this section as top polluters in tables and maps. These top
polluting facilities might indicate potential outliers, i.e. the values are not fully consistent with the
ones reported by the facilities across years and typically significantly contributing to the overall
country emissions and/or E-PRTR emissions for a particular pollutant.
The map below indicates countries with top polluters releases to air, water and transfers in water;
The Table 6, Table 7, and Table 8 provide detailed information per facility showed in the map. The
potential outliers excluded from the time series are listed in Appendix A.

4.1. Releases to air
Most countries (32) reported releases of SO2; 31 countries of CH4, CO2, NH3, and NOx; 30 countries of
CO and PM10; 28 countries of NMVOC and 27 countries of Hg. On the other hand, Asbestos,
Hexabromobiphenyl and Total organic carbon (TOC) were reported by only one country. The
following pollutants were reported by one country each although they do not have a threshold for
air: Chlorides, Fluoranthene, Fluorides (as total F), Phenols (as total C) and Total organic carbon
(TOC). The following pollutants with a threshold for air were not reported to air under E-PRTR 2014
Heptachlor, Lindane, Mirex and Toxaphene.
Countries reported releases to air for most of the 45 E-PRTR main activities except for activity 3.(d)
Installations for the production of asbestos and the manufacture of asbestos-based products. For
activity 7.(b) no releases to air are expected according to the E-PRTR Guidance Document13. For
activity 1.(e) Coal rolling mills there was only one release report to air in 2014.

4.2. Releases to water
Total nitrogen, total phosphorus, total organic carbon and heavy metals were reported most
frequently as releases to water. On the other hand releases of Aldrin, Asbestos, Chlorfenvinphos,
Chlorpyrifos, DDT, Endosulphan, Dieldrin, Endrin, Ethylene oxide, Heptachlor, Hexabromobiphenyl,
Isodrin, SOx, Trichloroethane-1,1,1 (TCE) and Trifluralin were reported by one country only. Ammonia
(NH3) was reported by one country as release to water although there are no thresholds for water for
this pollutant.
The following pollutants with a threshold for water were not reported as releases to water:
Chlordane, Endosulphan and Mirex. For most of these pollutants missing transfer reports may be
explained by the fact that these compounds are strongly regulated and subject to bans or restrictions
on their marketing and use. However, Chlorpyrifos and Ethylene oxide are not regulated and a higher
number of release reports would be expected.
Countries reported releases to water for most of the 45 E-PRTR main activities except for activity
1.(e) Coal rolling mills, 1.(f) Installations for the manufacture of coal products and solid smokeless
30 / 61
E-PRTR Summary report 2014

fuel, 3.(d) Installations for the production of asbestos and the manufacture of asbestos-based
products. For activity 1.(e) no releases to water are expected according to the E-PRTR Guidance
Document15.
In Annex II the Top-5 facilities with the highest share of total E-PRTR releases per pollutant to water

4.3. Transfers of pollutants in waste water
26 countries reported transfers of pollutants in wastewater. Most countries reported transfers in
water for total nitrogen, total organic carbon, total phosphorus, phenols and heavy metals. However,
transfers of Aldrin, DDT, Dieldrin, Hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) and Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs)
were reported by one country only. The following pollutants with a threshold for transfers in water
were not reported as transfers in water: Asbestos, Atrazine, Chlordane, Chlorfenvinphos,
Endosulphan, Endrin, Heptachlor, Hexachlorobenzene (HCB), Pentachlorobenzene, Lindane, Simazine,
Brominated diphenylethers (PBDE), Isoproturon, Triphenyltin and compounds, Trifluralin, Isodrin and
Hexabromobiphenyl.
Countries reported transfers to water for most of the 45 E-PRTR main activities except for activity
1.(e) Coal rolling mills, 3.(b) Opencast mining and quarrying, 3.(c) Installations for the production of
cement clinker and lime, 3.(d) Installations for the production of asbestos and the manufacture of
asbestos-based products and 7.(b) Intensive aquaculture. For activity 1.(e) no transfers in water are
expected according to the E-PRTR Guidance Document17.
In Annex II the top-5 facilities with the highest share of total E-PRTR transfers per pollutant to
wastewater are listed. The following table includes those facilities of them with a share above 30%
for a specific pollutant.

4.4. Releases to land
Only five countries (Bulgaria, France, Germany, Italy and Slovakia) out of 33 reported releases to
land. Out of the 61 pollutants with a threshold for land in Annex II of the E-PRTR Regulation 13 were
reported under E-PRTR 2014 compared to 14 pollutants under E-PRTR 2013. In Annex II the Top-5
facilities with the highest share of total 2014 E-PRTR releases to land are listed.
Since the first reporting round for 2007 the reporting on releases to land has been decreasing in
terms of countries reporting on it as well as in terms of the number of pollutants reported on, the
reporting of releases to land seems to be incomplete. This is due to different interpretation of the
scope by the European Commission and by the Member States. Further clarification of the scope of
the reporting obligation is ongoing.

4.5. Transfers of waste
The total number of facilities reporting waste for 2014 increased by 1.4% compared to 2013 (see
Figure 2). However, the total quantity of reported waste increased by about 18% to 574 million
tonnes for the year 2014. The number of waste transfer reports increased by 2% as well. It seems
that this increase is due to reporting of three facilities located in Italy and the Netherlands (see
Appendix A).
In Annex II are listed the top-10 facilities with highest share of total E-PRTR waste transfers per waste
type (hazardous waste inside country, hazardous waste outside country and non-hazardous waste).

5. Time series of quantities of reported pollutants and waste
transfers
This section provides time series of quantities of selected priority pollutants20 released to air and
water, transfers in water and waste transfers. Assessment of reported quantities accros timeseries
indicated outliers. Potential outliers significantly influencing time series have been excluded from the
trend figures and are listed in Appendix A and should be checked by the countries. The next chance
for the countries to re-submit PRTR data will be until 17th of May 2016.
An asterix ‘*’ in conjunction with the year in the figures indicates that for this year potential outliers
have been subtracted.
5.1. Quantities of reported releases to air 2007-2014
The pollutants that were most commonly reported to air in the period 2007-2014 were SO2, CO2, CH4,
NOx, NH3; CO, PM10; Hg, NMVOC and N2O. On the other hand Asbestos, Phenol and Total organic
carbon (TOC) were reported by only one country for 2014.
Releases to air of SO2, NOX and NMVOC decreased substantially since 2007. The releases of other
priority pollutants (CO2, CH4, HFCs) did not change significantly or slightly fell across the time series
2007-2014. The releases of NH3 on the other hand rose slightly since 2007. For other pollutants the
inconsistent time series might indicate reporting errors (PFCs, CO, PM10, As, Cd, Cr, PCDD/PCDF,
DCM, PER).

Priority pollutants have been proposed by ETC/ACM and agreed by EEA. Priority pollutants are considered most
frequently reported pollutants like: GHGs, pollutants contributing to acidification and Ozone production, heavy metals,
some potentially toxic chemicals.

water for some other pollutants did not show significant changes or slightly fell across the time series
2007-2014 (Total N, Total P).

5.3. Quantities of reported transfers in water 2007-2014
The time series of the transferred quantities of pollutants in waste water are even more inconsistent
than the time series of the releases quantities to water. The time series of the transferred quantities
of all analysed pollutants show more or less strong inconsistencies, which could indicate reporting
errors (Figure 51, Figure 52, Figure 53, Figure 54, Figure 56, Figure 57, Figure 58, Figure 59, Figure 60
and Figure 61).

5.4. Quantity of reported releases to land 2007-2014
The reporting of releases to land across the time series is rather inconsistent therefor no figures are
provided.
5.5. Quantities of reported waste transfers 2007-2014
The quantity of reported waste increased in the period 2007-2014 from 422 Mt to 574 Mt (+36%)
