Comments

The data about use of chemical products, is here expressed as intensities. The intensities show the quantity of chemical products labelled as dangerous for health and the environment including petroleum fuels and excluding exports products per the value added in each industry group.

Note that big differences between the years doesn't necessarily mean that there have been a real change in volumes, but can reflect the fact that substances in a chemical product can go from being not labelled as harmful, to being labelled as harmful.
