Definition of 3 Solvent and Other Product Use Source Category
This category covers mainly NMVOC emissions resulting from the use of solvents and other products containing volatile compounds. When the solvents and other products are, or are produced from, petroleum products, the carbon in the NMVOC emissions will be included in the CO2 inventory if the Reference Approach for CO2 emissions from energy is used. See note on double counting in ?Overview of the IPCC Guidelines?. Emissions from the consumption of halocarbons and sulphur hexafluoride should be reported in the Industrial Processes Chapter under 2 F. All other non-energy emissions not included under Industrial Processes are reported here.
