Fluorinated compound production

The AMEE category at business/processes/production/fluorinatedcompounds provides a methodology for calculating emissions of fluorinated compounds (FC) associated with their production. See the following subcategories for further details.

Production-based methodology

The AMEE category at business/processes/production/fluorinatedcompounds provides a methodology for calculating emissions of fluorinated compounds (FC) associated with their production, based on default emissions factors relating to the production of HFC's, PFC's and SF6. Users have the option of returning absolute quantity of emissions, or - by specifying the particular type of FC fluid used - returning the emissions expressed as CO2e. This methodology represents the Tier 1 approach described by the IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories (NGGIP).
