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.


With activity data and emission factors remaining unrevised, no recalculations were carried out compared to the previous submission.

Planned improvements

No improvements are planned.
