Definition of 2 Industrial Processes Source Category
Emissions within this sector comprise by-product or fugitive emissions of greenhouse gases from industrial processes. Emissions from fuel combustion in industry should be reported under Energy. In instances where industrial process emissions result jointly from chemical processes and fuel combustion it may be difficult to assign the emission(s) to either sector. Where the main purpose of the fuel combustion is to use the heat released, the resulting emissions should be assigned to the Energy sector.
Emissions should, wherever possible, be reported according to the ISIC Group or Class within which they occur. Certain methods in Chapter and Module 2, however, infer final GHG emissions from supply of the GHG, equipment containing it (for example, air conditioning equipment) or a stock material with which emissions are linked (for example, limestone). In these cases, assignment of emissions to ISIC activities may be difficult or incomplete.
