Nature Of Nonenergy Uses Of Fossil Fuels

As explained in Section 1.1 some CO2 emissions from fossil fuels arise from uses that are not primarily for energy purposes and, in this section, the principles are described which have guided their estimation and reporting. The methods used to estimate emissions are described in the specific IPPU source category chapters (Chapters 3, 4 and 5). This section provides important and additional background information for the use of data relating to non-energy use and the links between these data and the fossil fuel use.

Non-energy use is widespread, diverse and the correct reporting of its emissions is conceptually difficult. It is good practice to ensure that all fossil fuels supplied for non-energy purposes can be linked to uses covered by the inventory and the reported emissions are consistent with the carbon supplied. Accordingly, Section 1.4 provides guidance for assessing consistency and completeness of carbon emissions from feedstock use of fuels by (a) checking that feedstock requirements of processes included in the inventory are in balance with the feedstock supply as recorded in national energy statistics, (b) checking that total reported bottom-up calculated CO2 emissions from feedstock sources at different subcategory levels are complete and consistent, (c) documenting and reporting how these emissions are allocated in the inventory.
