Fuel combustion (Sectoral Approach)
Total emissions of all greenhouse gases
from all fuel combustion activities. CO2 emissions from combustion of biomass fuels are
not included (see Emissions from Biomass Burning). Other greenhouse gases from biomass fuel
combustion are considered net emissions and are included. Incineration of waste for waste-to-energy
facilities are included here and not under Waste. Emissions from fuel used in ships or aircraft
engaged in international transport are not included here.
Comprises emissions from fuels combusted by the fuel
extraction or energy producing industries.
Emissions from the combustion and evaporation of fuel for all
transport activity, regardless of the sector. Emissions from fuel sold to any air or marine vessel
engaged in international transport (international bunker fuels) are not included.
By-product or fugitive emissions of greenhouse gases from
industrial processes. Emissions from fuel combustion in industry are included under Fuel Combustion.
Solvent and Other Product Use
Emissions resulting from the use of solvents and
other products containing volatile compounds. When the solvents and other products are, or are
produced from, petroleum products, the carbon in the NMVOC emissions will be included in the
CO2 inventory if the Reference Approach for CO2 emissions from energy is used.
All other non-energy emissions not included under Industrial Processes are included here.
All anthropogenic emissions from agriculture except for fuel
combustion and sewage emissions.
Land-use Change and Forestry
Total emissions and removals from forest and land
use change activities (activities impact on three different carbon sources/sinks: aboveground
biomass, belowground biomass and soil carbon).
Land use, Land-Use Change and Forestry
Total emissions and removals from
activities relating to land use, land-use change and forestry (from the following categories: forest
land, cropland, grassland, wetlands, settlements and other land).
Total emissions from solid waste disposal on land, wastewater, waste incineration and any other waste
management activity. Any CO2 emissions from fossil-based products (incineration or
decomposition) are not included here. CO2 from organic waste handling and decay are not
Emissions that do not fit under any other emission source/sink categories
of the main categories described above.
Emissions resulting from fuel use in ships or aircraft
engaged in international transport.
