  • CO2 emissions from manufacturing industries and construction > % of total fuel combustion: CO2 emissions from manufacturing industries and construction (% of total fuel combustion). CO2 emissions from manufacturing industries and construction contains the emissions from combustion of fuels in industry. The IPCC Source/Sink Category 1 A 2 includes these emissions. However, in the 1996 IPCC Guidelines, the IPCC category also includes emissions from industry autoproducers that generate electricity and/or heat. The IEA data are not collected in a way that allows the energy consumption to be split by specific end-use and therefore, autoproducers are shown as a separate item (Unallocated Autoproducers). Manufacturing industries and construction also includes emissions from coke inputs into blast furnaces, which may be reported either in the transformation sector, the industry sector or the separate IPCC Source/Sink Category 2, Industrial Processes.
  • CO2 emissions from manufacturing industries and construction > Million metric tons: CO2 emissions from manufacturing industries and construction (million metric tons). CO2 emissions from manufacturing industries and construction contains the emissions from combustion of fuels in industry. The IPCC Source/Sink Category 1 A 2 includes these emissions. However, in the 1996 IPCC Guidelines, the IPCC category also includes emissions from industry autoproducers that generate electricity and/or heat. The IEA data are not collected in a way that allows the energy consumption to be split by specific end-use and therefore, autoproducers are shown as a separate item (Unallocated Autoproducers). Manufacturing industries and construction also includes emissions from coke inputs into blast furnaces, which may be reported either in the transformation sector, the industry sector or the separate IPCC Source/Sink Category 2, Industrial Processes.
  • CO2 emissions from manufacturing industries and construction > Million metric tons per million: CO2 emissions from manufacturing industries and construction (million metric tons). CO2 emissions from manufacturing industries and construction contains the emissions from combustion of fuels in industry. The IPCC Source/Sink Category 1 A 2 includes these emissions. However, in the 1996 IPCC Guidelines, the IPCC category also includes emissions from industry autoproducers that generate electricity and/or heat. The IEA data are not collected in a way that allows the energy consumption to be split by specific end-use and therefore, autoproducers are shown as a separate item (Unallocated Autoproducers). Manufacturing industries and construction also includes emissions from coke inputs into blast furnaces, which may be reported either in the transformation sector, the industry sector or the separate IPCC Source/Sink Category 2, Industrial Processes. Figures expressed per million population for the same year.
  • HFC gas emissions > Thousand metric tons of CO2 equivalent: HFC gas emissions (thousand metric tons of CO2 equivalent). Hydrofluorocarbons, used as a replacement for chlorofluorocarbons, are used mainly in refrigeration and semiconductor manufacturing.
  • HFC gas emissions > Thousand metric tons of CO2 equivalent per million: HFC gas emissions (thousand metric tons of CO2 equivalent). Hydrofluorocarbons, used as a replacement for chlorofluorocarbons, are used mainly in refrigeration and semiconductor manufacturing. Figures expressed per million population for the same year.
  • Industrial nitrous oxide emissions > Thousand metric tons of CO2 equivalent: Industrial nitrous oxide emissions (thousand metric tons of CO2 equivalent). Industrial nitrous oxide emissions are emissions produced during the manufacturing of adipic acid and nitric acid.
  • Industrial nitrous oxide emissions > Thousand metric tons of CO2 equivalent per million: Industrial nitrous oxide emissions (thousand metric tons of CO2 equivalent). Industrial nitrous oxide emissions are emissions produced during the manufacturing of adipic acid and nitric acid. Figures expressed per million population for the same year.
  • PFC gas emissions > Thousand metric tons of CO2 equivalent: PFC gas emissions (thousand metric tons of CO2 equivalent). Perfluorocarbons, used as a replacement for chlorofluorocarbons in manufacturing semiconductors, are a byproduct of aluminum smelting and uranium enrichment.
  • PFC gas emissions > Thousand metric tons of CO2 equivalent per million: PFC gas emissions (thousand metric tons of CO2 equivalent). Perfluorocarbons, used as a replacement for chlorofluorocarbons in manufacturing semiconductors, are a byproduct of aluminum smelting and uranium enrichment. Figures expressed per million population for the same year.
  • Patent applications > Nonresidents: Patent applications are applications filed with a national patent office for exclusive rights for an invention--a product or process that provides a new way of doing something or offers a new technical solution to a problem. A patent provides protection for the invention to the owner of the patent for a limited period, generally 20 years.
  • Patent applications > Nonresidents > Per capita: Patent applications are applications filed with a national patent office for exclusive rights for an invention--a product or process that provides a new way of doing something or offers a new technical solution to a problem. A patent provides protection for the invention to the owner of the patent for a limited period, generally 20 years. Per capita figures expressed per 1 million population.
  • Patent applications > Nonresidents per million: Patent applications are applications filed with a national patent office for exclusive rights for an invention--a product or process that provides a new way of doing something or offers a new technical solution to a problem. A patent provides protection for the invention to the owner of the patent for a limited period, generally 20 years. Figures expressed per million population for the same year.
