beakers iconThe non-fluorinated chemical manufacturing sector 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, and titanium dioxide. In addition to emissions from these chemical production processes, the sector includes combustion emissions from facilities that produce pesticides, fertilizer, pharmaceuticals, and other organic and inorganic chemicals. A small number of facilities in this sector collect CO2 either for use in their other production processes, to transfer to other users, or to sequester or otherwise inject underground. This CO2 is included in the emissions from this sector. 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).
