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
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
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 included here.
Emissions that do not fit under any other emission source/sink categories of the
main categories described above.
