2.C.7.b - Nickel Production
In subcategory NFR 2.C.7.b - Nickel production the TSP, SO2 and Ni emissions from nickel mining are reported. Reporting only covers the year 1990 because in 1991 nickel mining stopped in Germany.
The yearly production figure was taken from the annual statistical report of the US Geological Survey (USGS) for non-ferrous metals [Lit. 1].
The emission factors are the default values according to the 2019 EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission inventory guidebook [Lit. 2].

With activity data and emission factors remaining unrevised, no recalculations were carried out compared to Submission 2022.
For pollutant-specific information on recalculated emission estimates for Base Year and 2020, please see the pollutant specific recalculation tables following chapter 8.1 - Recalculations.
There are no category-specific improvements planned.
