GHGRP 2018: Non-Fluorinated Chemicals
The non-fluorinated chemical manufacturing subsector consists of facilities that produce adipic acid, ammonia, hydrogen (both merchant and non-merchant plants), nitric acid, petrochemicals (acrylonitrile, carbon black, ethylene, ethylene dichloride, ethylene oxide, methanol), phosphoric acid, silicon carbide, soda ash, and titanium dioxide and other non-fluorinated chemicals. In addition to emissions from these chemical production processes, the subsector includes combustion emissions from facilities that produce pesticides, fertilizer, pharmaceuticals, and other organic and inorganic chemicals. A total of 441 facilities reported 2018 emissions under the non-fluorinated chemicals subsector. A small number of facilities in this subsector collect CO2 either for use in their other production processes, to transfer to other users, or to sequester or otherwise inject underground; this subsector includes the CO2 from those process emissions. For example, some of the process emissions reported for ammonia manufacturing plants includes CO2 that is later consumed on site for urea production. This CO2 is not released to the ambient air from the ammonia manufacturing process unit(s).
