European Standard: Stationary source emissions - Determination of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in energy-intensive industries
This work has been developed within the mandate of the European Commission to CEN for the development of European Standards in the field of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in energy-intensive industries. According to the mandate had to provide harmonized methods for
CEN TC 264/Working Group 33 has been in charge of producing this standard consisting of the following parts:
— Part 1: General aspects
EUROALLIAGES was chairing the sub-group on Ferroalloys.
The initial step of this process was taken in 2012 with a call for tender for verification of the method for determining CO2 direct emissions in the ferro-alloys industry This call has been launched by AENOR (Asociación Española de Normalización y Certificación - Spanish Association for Standardisation and Certification) in close cooperation with EUROALLIAGES, with the financial support of the European Commission.
The purpose of this call is to gather, analyse and report field data by carrying out a sampling and laboratory analysis of the total carbon content of input and output materials and by measuring CO2 emissions from stack, and this at various plants located in Europe. The field measurements and the related report has been performed by SGS.
The mandate of the European Commission for the development of European Standards in the field of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in energy-intensive industries. CEN TC 264/Working Group 33 is in charge of producing this standard.
After 4 years of working, the European standard has been approved by CEN on 5 May 2016 and published. The ferro-alloys sub-standard can be found in the following link:
The ISO standard still under development has reached its final stage:
