Direct and indirect CO2 emissions of heat technologies
The new list gives figures for direct and indirect emissions for heat from Combined Cycle Gas Turbine Plant, waste incineration plant, geothermal, biomass-fired plant and industrial waste heat. These standard indices were calculated using existing methods such as EMG and SimaPro/Ecoinvent. Although the list presents standard values, the study also explains how users can themselves calculate the emissions associated with the particular form of heat they use. They are thus free to deviate from the standard values and use the data from their heat supplier’s quality certificate, as available.
