Stationary source emissions - Determination of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in energy-intensive industries - Part 1: General aspects
This European Standard specifies the principles and requirements for the determination of GHG emissions from sector-specific sources as of the steel and iron, cement, aluminium, lime and ferroalloy producing industry.
This European Standard specifies in particular definitions and rules valid to all above enlisted sector-specific standards, provides common methodological issues and defines the details for applying the rules for the harmonized methods, which include:
a) measuring, testing and quantifying methods for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of the above mentioned sector-specific sources in the cited standards;
b) assessment of the level of GHG emissions performance of production processes over time, at production sites;
c) establishment and provision of reliable, accurate and quality information for reporting and verification purposes.
The application of this standard to the other sector-specific standards in this series ensures accuracy, precision and reproducibility of the obtained results and is for this reason a normative reference standard, umbrella standard respectively.
