Titanium dioxide production

The AMEE category at /business/processes/production/titaniumdioxide provides methodologies for calculating greenhouse gas emissions associated with the production of titanium dioxide. See the following subcategories for further details.

Generic calculation

The AMEE category at /business/processes/production/lime/production/titaniumdioxide/production provides a methodology based upon generic emissions factors for CO2 emissions per quantity of titanium oxide produced. This methodology represents the Tier 1 approach described by the IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories (NGGIP).

Feedstock-based calculation

The AMEE category at business/processes/production/titaniumdioxide/consumption provides a methodology based on a mass-balance approach taking into consideration the carbon content of process feedstocks. This methodology is sourced from the IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories (NGGIP) and represents the Tier 2 approach.
