IPCC methodology for stationary fuel combustion

Name Type Unit Choices Default Note
Type of fuel Selection

Type of fuel

Combustion context Selection

Industrial context or specific technology type

Energy of fuel used Input Data TJ

Energy produced in combustion

Mass of fuel used Input Data Gg

Mass of fuel used

Use higher heating value? Input Data true, false false

Set true to indicate that specified of energy represents consumption based on the 'higher heating value' (or gross calorific value). Otherwise, the lower heating value (or net calorific value) is assumed by default. This is only valid if consumption is specified in terms of energy. If fuel quantity is specified as a mass or a volume, this will have no effect.

Volume of fuel used Input Data

Volume of fuel used

CH4 emissions per unit energy yielded Reference Data kg/TJ

CH4 emissions per unit of energy yielded. This value is based upon the net energy content of the fuel ('net calorific value' or 'lower heating value')

CO2 emissions per unit energy yielded Reference Data kg/TJ

CO2 emissions per unit of energy yielded. This value is based upon the net energy content of the fuel ('net calorific value' or 'lower heating value')

N2O emissions per unit energy yielded Reference Data kg/TJ

N2O emissions per unit of energy yielded. This value is based upon the net energy content of the fuel ('net calorific value' or 'lower heating value')

Lower to higher heating value conversion factor Reference Data

Conversion factor to adjust emissions for use on a higher heating value basis. This is only relevant if consumption is specified in terms of energy

Lower heating value Reference Data TJ/Gg

Lower heating value (net calorific value) of the fuel. This is a measure of the energy content of the fuel

Fuel density Reference Data kg/m³

Density of liquid and gaseous fuels at standard pressure and temperature
