Climate Change (Stationary Energy and Industrial Processes) Regulations 2009

35 Method of calculating emissions from producing aluminium

(1)

Emissions in relation to aluminium produced by the person in the year must be calculated in accordance with the following formula:

TE = (A + B + C) + [D × F × (G × H) + (I × J)]
1000

where—

A

is the total number of tonnes of carbon dioxide resulting from baked anodes used by the person in the year, as recorded under regulation 34(a)

B

is the total number of tonnes of carbon dioxide resulting from pitch volatiles used by the person in the year, as recorded under regulation 34(b)

C

is the total number of tonnes of carbon dioxide resulting from packing material used by the person in the year, as recorded under regulation 34(c)

D

is the total number of tonnes of hot metal aluminium produced in the year, as recorded under regulation 34(d)

F

is the anode effect minutes per cell-day, as recorded under regulation 34(e)

G

is the slope coefficient for C2F6, as recorded under regulation 34(f)

H

is 12 200 (the global warming potential for C2F6)

I

is the slope coefficient for CF4, as recorded under regulation 34(f)

J

is 7 390 (the global warming potential for CF4)

TE

is the total emissions for the activity of producing aluminium for the year in tonnes.

(2)

If a person who is required to comply with this regulation is required to submit an emissions return for a period other than a year, this regulation applies with any necessary modifications.
