These are the emissions of Greenhouse gases from Mexico. Halocarbons are not emitted by every country on Earth.
The primary source of Mexico's pollutants is from it's energy sector. Mexico is trying to move into a better energy mix to bring down it's CO2 emissions. Mexico's primary pollutant is CO2 and not other halocarbons and sulphur hexafluoride. Oil is still the primary fuel with natural gas on it's heels and both emit CO2.
This inventory uses source categories (click here) defined by two guidance documents: the Common Reporting Format (CRF) source categories defined by the Updated UNFCCC reporting guidelines on annual inventories following incorporation of the provisions of decision 14/CP.11 memorandum, and, for Waste, source categories defined by the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories.
Totals reflect net emissions (the sum of all sources minus the sum of all sinks).
