Chapter 4 - NFR 2 - Industrial Processes and Product Use

Last updated on 25 May 2016 12:28 (cf. Authors)

Industrial processes are an important emission source for most pollutants. Due to Germany's high-level, differentiated industry featuring numerous companies and a large number of plants for each sector, emission estimation for industrial processes is very complex. Please refer to the sub-sections below for details.

In the area of industrial processes, use is made of production data from association statistics and of manufacturers' information. In the interest of the inventory's completeness and reliability, where emissions reporting is based on such sources, checking of source-category definitions and data-collection methods will continue to receive priority. The inventory is considered complete for main industrial processes. Nevertheless, there are still certain categories awaiting further examination, though their contributions to the national total emissions are expected to be minor.

NFR 2 - Industrial Processes consists of the following and sub-categories:
