Glass production

The AMEE category /business/processes/production/glass contains data and methodologies for calculating the greenhouse gas emissions associated with the production of glass. Two subcategories are currently available, which provide two methodologies sourced from the IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories.

The Generic glass production category provides data for the manufacture of generic, representative type of glass.

The Glass production carbonate methodology category uses specific quantities of various carbonate species - used as feedstock in the glass industry and the primary source of carbon - for calculating CO2 emissions.
