Improved statistics for SSAB, refineries and lime producers

SMED has carried out several studies in order to improve the quality of reported emissions for three different sectors to the UNFCCC, the European Union's Greenhouse Gas Monitoring Mechanism and to CLRTAP. The aim of this study is to obtain consistent activity data and recalculate emissions for the primary iron and steel production (SSAB), the refineries and the lime-producing companies for the years 1990-2002. Further, the methodology applied for the emission calculations shall be in line with the IPCC Guidelines and Good Practice Guidance.

This report gives suggestions on detailed methods for revising the emission estimates as well as suggestions on future improvements.
