2.C.7.c - Other Metal Production

Last updated on 20 Mar 2018 07:33 (cf. Authors)

Short description

NFR-Code Name of Category Method AD EF Key Category 1
2.C.7.c Other Metal Production T1 AS D, CS no key category

Within NFR sub-category 2.C.7.c - Other Metal Production thermal galvanisation is reported. The main pollutants are PM.

Methodological issues

Activity data

The production figures for the year 2016 were taken from the annual statistical report of the German association for non-ferrous metals [1].

Emission factors

The emission factors are either default values according to IPCC guidelines or determined in several research projects.

Table 1: Tier1 emission factors applied for entire time series, in [kg/t]
Pollutant Activity / Process EF
TSP thermal galvanisation 0.02
PM10 thermal galvanisation 0.0164
PM2.5 thermal galvanisation 0.01158


With activity data and emission factors remaining unrevised, no recalculations have been carried out compared to last year's submission.

Planned improvements

At the moment, no category-specific improvements are planned.
