Stationary source emissions - Determination of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in energy-intensive industries - Part 5: Lime industry
This European Standard provides a harmonized methodology for calculating GHG emissions from the lime industry. It includes the manufacture of lime, and any downstream lime products manufactured at the plant, such as ground or hydrated lime. This standard allows for reporting of GHG emissions for various purposes and on different basis, such as plant basis, company basis (by country or by region) or international organization basis.
Since lime is defined as the generic name for quicklime, dolime and sintered dolime, plants manufacturing at least one of these products shall be covered by this standard.
This European Standard addresses all of the following direct and indirect sources of GHG included as defined in ISO 14064-1:
— direct greenhouse gas emissions from greenhouse gas sources that are owned or controlled by the company, such as emissions resulting from the following sources:
— calcination of carbonates and combustion of organic carbon contained in the kiln stone;
— combustion of kiln fuels (fossil kiln fuels, alternative fossil fuels, mixed fuels with biogenic carbon content, biomass fuels and bio fuels) related to lime production and/or drying of raw materials;
— combustion of non-kiln fuels (fossil kiln fuels, mixed fuels with biogenic carbon content, biomass fuels and bio fuels) related to equipment and on-site vehicles, heating/cooling and other on-site uses;
— combustion of fuels for on-site power generation.
— indirect greenhouse gas emissions from the generation of imported electricity, heat or steam consumed by the organization;
— other indirect greenhouse gas emissions, other than energy indirect GHG emissions, which is a consequence of an organization's activities, but arises from greenhouse gas sources that are owned or controlled by other organizations such as from imported kiln stone.
