Solvent and other product use

For N2O from the use of anaesthesia an amount of 24 g N2O and 34 g N2O per capita in 2000 was used for EIT and Annex II countries, respectively, based on the average values in UNFCCC (2008) and tentatively set at 5 g/cap/year for non-Annex I countries, based on Kroeze (1994). Globally a declining rate from 1990 to 2005 of 20% was assumed as observed for total Annex I countries.

For N2O from aerosol spray cans an amount of 10 g N2O per capita in 2000 was used for Annex I countries based on the average values in UNFCCC (2008) and none for non-Annex I countries. A uniform inclining rate from 1990 to 2005 of 50% was assumed as observed for total Annex I countries.
