This International Standard provides a harmonised methodology for calculating GHG emissions from the ferro-alloys industry based on the mass balance approach. It also provides key performance indicators over time of ferro-alloys plants. It addresses the following direct and indirect sources of GHG:
- (Direct GHG emissions (14064-1 5.2.4 a - former Scope 1 -) from sources that are owned or controlled by the company, such as emissions resulting 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.).
- Indirect GHG emissions from (14064-1 5.2.4 b - former Scope 2 -):
- The generation of purchased electricity consumed in the company's owned or controlled equipment
This standard shall be used in conjunction with ISO 19694-1:20XX which contains generic, overall requirements, definitions and rules applicable to the determination of GHG emissions for all energy-intensive 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.
