Introduction

Each year, on request from the French Environment Ministry, CITEPA produces a large number of emissions inventories in formats that are specific to each institutional framework (United Nations, European Commission).

The reports (UNFCCC, UNECE/NEC, LCPs, NAMEA, etc.) cover different fields in terms of substances, emission sources and geographical area. They are compiled to a fixed format defined by international bodies, and therefore not easily interpreted by non-specialists.

CITEPA also produces data on emissions released well before the periods covered by these reports (published since 1966) and is in possession of analysis results on emission trends over time and by sector of activity.

In order to make all of its air emissions data available in an easily understandable form, CITEPA, with the support of the French Environment Ministry, developed a specific inventory format in the mid-1990s, known since 1999 as the SECTEN format (Economic sectors and energy). This report is based on the same data as those used to compile the official national inventories (cf. reporting frameworks mentioned above), but it groups them together, covers longer periods of time and presents the data in a more user-friendly format.

The SECTEN report is produced under the national system of air emissions inventories and audits (SNIEBA). It is updated each year during the year, contains over 300 pages and provides information organised into several main categories (read (in French) the SECTEN report online via your login and password).

 

New features

SECTEN quantified data

The data of the SECTEN inventory (tables and graphs), without analysis, are downloadable free of charge on this page. These data are public (financed by the Environment Ministry).

SECTEN analysis report

CITEPA also produces a report in French which contains the interpretation and the SECTEN data analysis. It will enable you to find out inter alia:

  • what is the current situation regarding air emissions and emission sources in mainland France until 2015 as well as 2016 emission estimations,
  • which are the most emission-intensive sectors of activity,
  • emission trends of each of the 30 inventoried substances,
  • if France meets its international commitments.

This report is not public (its preparation is entirely financed by CITEPA).

Geographic scope

SECTEN data concern mainland France but some additional files also present data concerning greenhouse gases in the format of the KYOTO scope. The following chart shows the various geographical scopes of the emission inventories.

Temporal scope

The results cover the 1990-2015 period and estimations for the year 2016 (preliminary estimations) are sometimes provided. Furthermore, for some substances, data has been reported since 1980, in particular those covered by the various Protocols adopted under the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution and since 1960 for substances traditionally studied by CITEPA (SO2, NOx, CO2, CO).

 

Substances

In total, data are reported for 30 different substances (cf. table below) and various indicators including those on acidification and the greenhouse effect. Fluorinated gas, NMVOC and PAH speciations are also available.
 

Environmental Effect/Impact Pollutants concerned
Acidification, eutrophication, photochemical pollution SO2, NOx, NH3, COVNM, CO
Enhancing the greenhouse effect (indirect greenhouse gases already reported under the issue acidification and photochemical pollution are not mentioned here) CO2, CH4, N2O, HFC, PFC, SF6, NF3
Contamination by heavy metals As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Hg, Ni, Pb, Se, Zn
Contamination by persistent organic pollutants Dioxins/furans (PCDD-F), PAHs*, PCB, HCB
Particulate matter Total suspended particules (TSP), PM10, PM2,5, PM1,0, Black carbon

 * total of 4 HAP : benzo(a)pyrene, benzo(b)fluoranthene, benzo(k)fluoranthene et indeno(1,2,3-cd)pyrene

Energy analysis


Breakdown of emissions by fuel

For greenhouse gases, analysis of emissions by fuel type includes energy use (boilers, engines, turbines, process furnaces combustion) and also non-energy use (for instance, CH4 leakage coming from the natural gas transmission and distribution network, etc.).

For air pollutants, these results must be interpreted bearing in mind that, for most of the polluants, the quantities consumed in energy processes with contact (clinker furnaces, glass furnaces, etc.) are not included and thus the results are provided by default. Analysis of emissions by fuel type includes energy use (combustion) and also non-energy use (for instance, NMVOCs emitted when filling vehicle tanks).

The quantities attributed to petroleum products used in the maritime and air transport activities, not included in the national total, are not taken into account. In the following tables, some products, sometimes considered as waste, are taken into account since they have been used as fuels (industrial waste, black liquor, etc.). Emissions resulting from waste treatment itself are not included.
