Emissions of the three acidifying and eutrophying pollutants have decreased significantly between 1990 and 2010. Since 1990 these have decreased by 74%, mainly as a result of decreased SOX emissions. Emissions of sulphur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx ) and ammonia (NH3 ) in the year 2010 have met their respective 2010 emission ceiling limits. Comparison of emissions per capita ranks Slovenia to the 15th place among the EU-27 countries in the year 2010.
