EU ETS emission allowance allocation for the glass industry in post 2012

2013-04-20 | Statistics

In this article, taking into consideration the information used when allocating emission allowances, we present production processes and glassmaking technologies, with direct emissions and heat recovery in mind, benchmarking – and relative PRODCOM codes. Last, but not least, we learn about the different types of cullet used in production, and the specific quality requirements to be respected in their use.

In terms of production volume, hollow glass and flat glass are, with production volumes of 22.4 Mt hollow glass and 10.3 Mt flat glass in 2007, by far the most important products. Data on 2007 production volume, GHG emissions and power consumption was...
