For a research project, I need EU's F-gas emissions in terms of tons of substance.
What I found so far:
- F-gas emissions in t of CO2e, but lacking information about the average GWP used to calculate them (e.g. here:[…]eenhouse-gas-inventory-2019)
- Figures about F-gas supply, production etc, which cannot easily be related to emissions (e.g. here:[…]/fluorinated-greenhouse-gases-2019)
Can you tell me where I can find EU's F-gas emissions in terms of tons of substance? Alternatively, can I find somewhere the average GWP value used for conversion of F-gas emissions to CO2e (which I could use to back-calculate to tons of substance)?
Thank you and kind regards!

Sorry, it somehow triple-posted this question...

Dear M. Daniel W.,

The GWPs used for reporting of Annex I GHG inventories are those from the 4th assessment report of the IPCC, and are contained in Annex III of UNFCCC Decision 24/CP.19. The substances in tonnes can be found in the underpinning inventory CRF tables (see for EU-28):[…]/eu-greenhouse-gas-inventory

In particular, the following tables may be of interest for you:

We hope that this may be useful for you.

With kind regards,
