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.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 2013 were taken from the annual statistical report of the German non ferrous metals association (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
TSP thermal galvanisation 0.02 kg/t constant
PM10 thermal galvanisation 0.0164 kg/t constant
PM2.5 thermal galvanisation 0.01158 kg/t constant


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