The line graph indicates the acid rain emission produced by four sectors in the UK from 1990 to 2007.

Overall, the majority of acid rain emission was produced by the electricity, gas and water supply sector at the beginning. Throughout the entire period, the figures for most sectors fell disproportionally, with the exception of transportation and communication sector.

As showed by the graph in 1991, the highest amount of about 3.4 million tons of acid rain was produced by the electricity, gas and water supply sector, compared to 2 million tons for the other industries sector at the same year. In contrast, the transport and communication as well as the domestic sector only accounted for 0.8 and 0.7 million tons of acid rain emission respectively.

By 2007, the figure for electricity, gas and water supply field drop significantly, falling from 3.4 million tons to only 0.5 million tons and fluctuated in the year of 1997 and 1999. It can clearly be seen that acid rain emission caused by domestic and other industries sector were followed by the similar pattern, with the number reduced to only 2.2 and 1.2 million tons in 2007. However, the transport and communication sector was responsible for the growing amount of acid rain emission, the number of which reached the peak of 1 million tons in 2005.
