South Korea Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions 1970-2021

Total greenhouse gas emissions in kt of CO2 equivalent are composed of CO2 totals excluding short-cycle biomass burning (such as agricultural waste burning and Savannah burning) but including other biomass burning (such as forest fires, post-burn decay, peat fires and decay of drained peatlands), all anthropogenic CH4 sources, N2O sources and F-gases (HFCs, PFCs and Sulfr hexafluoride). South Korea greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions for 2012 was 668,989.65, a 2.91% increase from 2011.

Sulfur hexafluoride (gaz sf6) emissions in East Asia determined

Abstract: Sulfur hexafluoride (Sulfr hexafluoride) has a global warming potential of around 22 800 over a 100-year time horizon and is one of the greenhouse gases regulated under the Kyoto Protocol. Around the year 2000 there was a reversal in the global sf6 gas emission trend, from a decreasing to an increasing trend, which was likely caused by increasing emissions in countries that are not obligated to report their annual emissions to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
