The European Commission has published the data on CO2 emitting facilities in 2018, and among the biggest European polluters, coal-fired power plants stand out above all, which occupy the top ten positions on the continent, except for one notable exception, Ryanair. The company has become the first transportation company to appear in this annual top 10. However, the Brussels-based Transport and Environment Research Center calls for the introduction of new regulations for airlines to change fuel.

Regarding the largest issuers in Spain, in the top 10 thermal power plants, steel plants, and oil refineries appear, while the airline Vueling is in 12th place.
