DIN EN 19694-6
Stationary source emissions - Determination of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in energy-intensive industries - Part 6: Ferroalloy industry
|Publication Date:||1 October 2016|
|ICS Code (Stationary source emissions):||13.040.40|
This European Standard provides a harmonized methodology for calculating GHG emissions from the ferro-alloys industry based on the mass balance approach2. It also provides key performance indicators over time of ferro-alloys plants. It addresses the following direct and indirect sources of GHG:
- Scope 1 - Direct GHG emissions from sources that are owned or controlled by the company, such as emissions result from the following sources:
- smelting (reduction) process;
- decomposition of carbonates inside the furnace;
- auxiliaries operation related to the smelting operation (i.e. aggregates, drying processes, heating of ladles, etc.).
- Scope 2 - Indirect GHG emissions from:
- the generation of purchased electricity consumed in the company's owned or controlled equipment.
This European Standard is to be used in conjunction with EN 19694-1, which contains generic, overall requirements, definitions and rules applicable to the determination of GHG emissions for all energyintensive sectors, provides common methodological issues and defines the details for applying the rules. The application of this standard to the sector-specific standards ensures accuracy, precision and reproducibility of the results and is for this reason a normative reference standard. The requirements of these standards do not supersede legislative requirements.
