Definition of 2C2 Ferroalloys Production Source Category
Ferroalloys production covers emissions from primary metallurgical reduction production of the most common ferroalloys, i.e. ferro-silicon, silicon metal, ferro-manganese, silicon manganese, and ferro-chromium, excluding those emissions relating to fuel use. From the production of these alloys, carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O), and methane (CH4) originating from ore- and reductant raw materials, is emitted.
