A material flux analysis for the year 2005

The report quantifies the material fluxes of nitrogen in Switzerland for the year 2005, and makes a comparison with figures from 1994. Thanks to successful measures in the areas of combustion and transport, emissions and depositions have decreased. The results show that some improvements have also been achieved in regard to inputs and losses in the area of agriculture. Nevertheless, agricultural processes continue to play a decisive role for environmentally relevant nitrogen losses.
