2.C.5 - Lead Production

Last updated on 16 Oct 2015 06:20 (cf. Authors)

Short description

NFR-Code Name of Category Method AD EF Key Category for (by1)
2.C.5 Lead Production T1 AS D, CS no key category

Within NFR sub-category 2.C.5 - Lead production, SO2, PM2.5, PM10, TSP, PCDD/F and PCB emissions from the production of lead are reported.

Methodological issues

Activity data

The production figures for the year 2013 were taken from the annual statistical report of the German association for non-ferrous metals (WirtschaftsVereinigung Metalle).

Emission factors

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

Pollutant Name of Category EF Unit Trend
PM2.5 lead production 0.0175 kg/t constant
PM10 lead production 0.02125 kg/t constant
TSP lead production 0.025 kg/t constant
PCDD/F lead production 0.34 µg/t constant


Recalculations were necessary due to corrected misallocation in NFR 2.C.5.c and 2.C.5.e.
