Since the analysis of the emission inventory on the metropolitan area, it is possible to obtain the whole pollutant emission, and the main activity sectors responsible for the same ones:
  • NOx (5.000 t/y): road transport (56%) and electric energy production (15%).
  • PM (2.800 t/y): Non metallic minerals industries (59%),oil industries (15%) and road transport (14%). vCOVNM (8.800 t/y): solvent and other product use (30%), road transport (17%) and oil industries (16%).
  • CH4 (5.400 t/y): Solid waste disposal (58%), Livestock (16%) and liquid waste disposal (15%).
  • SO2 (2.200 t/y): Non metallic minerals industries (51%), electric energy production (13%) and extractive and mineral processing (13%).
