This category provides data and a methodology for calculating the greenhouse gas emissions from lime manufacturing using production data. Emissions are disaggregated on the bases of the types of lime produced and corrected for the production of any hydrated lime and any uncalcined lime kiln dust (LKD) that is not recycled to the kiln.

This methodology and associated data is sourced from the WRI Greenhouse Gas protocol worksheets but ultimately follows the IPCC 2006 Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories. This cateogry represents the IPCC's Tier 2 approach.

Use the drill-down limeType to select the type of lime being used and enter the required profile item values listed below.

Algorithm

LKD correction factor = 1+ (lkdWeight / limeQuantity) * fracLkd * calcinationLKD

CO2 emissions = caoMgoRatio * stoicRatio * limeQuantity * (1 - (hydLime * waterLLime)) * LKD correction factor
