Global NOx emissions 1990-2017

Since 1990, levels of nitrogen oxides (NOx) emitted by OECD nations have been in a steady decline, except for an increase in 2002. By 2017, emissions had fallen to 25.1 million metric tons. This was the lowest level during this period. That year Australia had the highest level of NOx emissions per capita of all OECD nations, at 108.42 kilograms.

Nitrogen Oxides are a group of gases composed of nitrogen and oxygen, and includes nitrogen dioxide. Nitrogen dioxide is a harmful air pollutant and is responsible for hundreds of thousands of premature deaths worldwide every year.
