Abstract

An estimate of the annual global methyl bromide (CH Br) emissions from automobile exhausts has been determined by extrapolating the results of a field study conducted in the United Kingdom (UK). A strong linear correlation was observed between the CH Br and carbon monoxide (CO) concentrations of roadside air in three cities. This correlation and knowledge of the UK CO emissions was used to estimate the source strength of CH Br from automobile exhausts in the UK (0.04 ktonnes yr ). Further extrapolations lead to a value of 1.5 ktonnes yr (with an upper limit of 3.0 ktonnes yr ) of CH Br released globally to the atmosphere from automobile exhausts.
