The German emission inventory is generally based on the emission behaviour of the plants. Therefore it's necessary to distinguish between process-combustion on the one hand and industrial power plants and boiler systems on the other hand.
The emission behaviour of power plants and boiler systems of the various industrial sectors is similar. That's why all the emissions from these type of plants were reported under source category 1.A.2.f.i other.
Whereas the emission behaviour of the different process-combustion systems is individual. A distinction between fuel and process related emissions is usually not possible. Therefore all emissions emissions from process-combustion systems are reported in the corresponding source category of the industry sector NFR 2.
