This chapter in the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National GHG Inventories gives guidance for estimating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that result from the production of various inorganic and organic chemicals. It covers emissions from the production of ammonia; nitric acid; adipic acid, caprolactam, glyoxal and glyoxylic acid; carbide; titanium dioxide; soda ash; key processes in the petrochemical and carbon black production; and fluorochemical production. It focuses on non-energy-related emissions and assumes no carbon dioxide capture and storage.
