Titanium dioxide production feedstock methodology

The AMEE category at business/processes/production/titaniumdioxide/consumption provides a methodology for calculating greenhouse gas emissions associated with the production of titanium dioxide. The methodology is 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.

To use this category, simply create a profile item - there are no drill choices.

Next, specify the quantity of feedstock consumed using the massFeedstock profile item value and the carbon content of the feedstock using the feedstockCarbon profile item value. Users can additionally specify the fraction oxidation achieved for the feedstock is appropriate using the feedstockOxidation profile item value (decimal fraction, i.e. 0-1), although this defaults to 1 (i.e. 100% oxidation) if left unspecified.

The returned value represents CO2 emissions associated with the consumption and properties of feedstock specified.
