I am looking for the data that supports the following statement and data:

"...in the EU, solid fuel combustion in households contributes more than 46% to total emissions of fine particulate matter, i.e., three times more than road transport."

"% of total primary emissions of PM2.5 in the EU-28: BIOMASS=36%; COAL=10%"

All the info has been extracted from the following document (page 4):

I have already downloaded the "National emissions reported to the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (LRTAP Convention)" dataset, but as far as I am able to understand it, it is not seggregated by biomass and coal household combustion.

Thank you in advance.

Dear M. Aragon G.,

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA).

Unfortunately, our data does not enable to split air pollutants emission by fuel types. For further information, we would suggest you to contact the European Commission - DG Environment via its online form at https://ec.europa.eu/environment/contact/contact_en.htm or via email ENV-AIR@ec.europa.eu. It is the EU institution that published the data and statement you are referring to.

We wish you all the best in your research.

With kind regards,
EEA Enquiry Service
