Activity data

The yearly production figures were provided by the German association “Industrieverband Feuerverzinken e.V” (IFV) back to year 2010 [Lit. 1]. The figures are based on annual queries of its member companies. As the market share is about 45% the IFV extrapolates the total values for Germany on this basis.

Emission factors

The emission factor for TSP was determined on the basis of data supplied for the FMP (Ferrous Metals Processing) BREF review.
The split factors originate from [Lit. 2]

As produced amounts are confidantial no emission factors could be published.


Recalculations back to 2010 were necessary due to updated activity data and emission factor for TSP.

For more information on recalculated emission estimates for Base Year and 2018, please see the pollutant specific recalculation tables following chapter 8.1 - Recalculations.

Planned improvements

No improvements are planned.
