2.A - Mineral Industry - Overview

Last updated on 30 Aug 2017 16:54 (cf. Authors)

The Mineral Industry comprises six different sub-categories with structural differences to reporting format of Greenhouse Gases (CRF).

The main categories are the Cement Production (2.A.1), Lime Production (2.A.2), Glass Production (2.A.3).

But further mineral industries are important regarding other specific emissions, highlighted here: Mining other than coal (2.A.5.a), Construction (2.A.5.b) and Ceramics Production (2.A.6).

NFR-Code Name of Category Method AD EF Key Source relevance
2.A.1 Cement Production T1 AS CS PM2.5 (T), Hg (L)
2.A.2 Lime Production T1 AS CS beyond the 80% level for all
2.A.3 Glass Production T2 AS CS beyond the 80% level for all
2.A.5.a Mining other than coal T1 NS D TSP (L), PM10 (L/T)
2.A.5.b Construction and Demolition T1 NS CS TSP (L/T), PM10 (L/T)
2.A.6 Ceramics Production T1 NS CS TSP (L/T)

T1 = Tier 1 in relation to EF / T2 = Tier 2 in relation to EF
