2.B.6 - Titanium Dioxide Production

Last updated on 18 Mar 2020 09:11 (cf. Authors)

Short description

In NFR 2.B.6, SO2 emissions from the production of titanium dioxide are reported.

Method

For the production of titanium dioxide, the producers report the sum of all SO2-emissions.
As these emissions are confidential, they are included in the respective emisisons reported for sulphuric acid production.

Recalculations

For SO2 emissions from the production of titanium dioxide and sulphuric acid, estimates reported for the second-last year of the time series are routinely actualised by the producers. Furthermore, original emissions for the last year of the time series are not yet available at the time the inventory is compiled. Here, the reported values represent a prediction and are therefore updated with each new submission, too.

For Titandioxid production there is a small recalculation for the 2015 and 2016, because of technical problems with the data transfer.

For more information on recalculated emission estimates for Base Year and last year, please see the pollutant-specific recalculation tables following chapter 8.1 - Recalculations.

Planned improvements

In the NEC Review Germany was requested to calculate emissions of NOx, CO and TSP from titan dioxid production. Germany tries to collect the data neede to calculate these emissions.
