2.B.6 - Titanium Dioxide Production

Last updated on 29 Aug 2019 09:29 (cf. Authors)

Short description

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


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.


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.

Planned improvements

In the NEC Review Germany was requested to calculate emissions of NOx, CO and TSP from titan dioxid production. Germany trys as soon as possible to collect the data and to calculate the emissions.

For pollutant-specific information on recalculated emission estimates for Base Year and 2016, please see the pollutant specific recalculation tables following chapter 8.1 - Recalculations.
