Nitrous oxide

N2O

Molar mass 44.013 g/mol
Lifetime in atmosphere 121 years
Global Warming Potential over 100 years 298
Estimated emissions in 2008 10,700 Gg
Atmospheric concentration in September 2013 325,924 ppt

Nitrous oxide is not subject to the EU Waste Incineration Directive. But it is a greenhouse gas, with a global warming potential nearly 300 times that of carbon dioxide.
