Industrial & Municipal Releases

Industry remains one of the main sources of contamination in the Baltic Sea, contributing through discharges into water bodies and emissions into the air. These discharges subsequently reach the Baltic Sea via riverine inputs, direct discharges, or airborne deposition. Industrial facilities also account for other significant environmental impacts, such as soil contamination, waste generation, and energy use.
