Definition of 1A2 Manufacturing Industries and Construction (ISIC) Source Category
Emissions from combustion of fuels in industry including combustion for the generation of electricity and heat. Emissions from autoproducers should be assigned to the sector where they were generated and an attempt made to separately identify the emissions associated with autogeneration from those associated with process heat. Emissions from fuel combustion in coke ovens within the iron and steel industry should be reported under 1 A 1 c and not within manufacturing industry. Emissions from the industry sector should be specified by subsectors that correspond to the International Standard Industrial Classification of All Economic Activities (ISIC). Energy used for transport by industry should not be reported here but under Transport (1 A 3 below). Emissions arising from off-road and other mobile machinery in industry should, if possible, be broken out as a separate subcategory. For each country, the emissions from the largest fuel-consuming industrial categories (ISIC) should be reported, as well as those from significant emitters of pollutants. A suggested list of categories is outlined below.
