Written by Mirela-Adriana RUSALI

The paper aims to assess the pollution level of Romania’s agriculture, with emphasis on emissions of carbon gases, by analyzing the structure, trends and estimates of indicators projected in medium and long terms, according to the actual policies and targets for moving to a competitive low carbon economy in 2050. Romanian agriculture has not proved to be very intensive in terms of greenhouse gases pollution compared to the energy sector, however, being the second pollutant sector of economy, is one factor that contributes significantly to overall emissions mainly due to emissions of the livestock sector and of synthetic fertilizers use. Analysis shows potentials in 'greening’ the economy in Romania, given the trends of massive reduces of emissions of greenhouse gases over the last two decades. It also underlines the crucial importance to reduce the statistics on polluting effects of agriculture provided by the potential expressed and growing of the Romanian forestry sector.
