CO2-balancing In The Aluminium Industry

The Nurnberger Ceramix AG equips primary aluminium producers with CO2 capture software from F working in the brick and tile industry so far mostly & – services firm Ceramix AG won the largest German primary aluminium producers as new customers with its proven software solution for CO2 balancing and acquisition. The aluminum producer determines future emissioncontrol incurred during the production processes CO2 emissions at several locations in Germany with the Ceramix software. The Nurnberger Ceramix AG could place emissioncontrol, their German brick industry already since several years successfully used software for capturing CO2, now also in the aluminum industry. The largest primary aluminium producer in Germany recorded and monitored the resulting from the transformation and extraction processes CO2 emissions with emissioncontrol now in the future. While the software with their possibilities and capabilities able to score points. It is possible, for example, involve forward chain in the CO2 balance and a variety of figures and graphs using the extensive reporting and analysis options automatically give out to have. Also implemented is a forecasting tool that allows, until the end of the current year forecast, as well as an interface, a networking of emissioncontrol allowed CO2 emissions on the basis of variable production services. In sum, it is possible her down the calculated CO2 emissions on a single unit of the product and thus aluminum to create a comprehensive CO2 footprint (carbon footprint) of the product.

The calculation routines of emissioncontrol are thereby adapted for the accounting treatment of the aluminum production processes in close cooperation with the customer and tested. Thanks to the basic flexibility of the program structure, adapting to the needs of the customer could be implemented easily. Aluminium producers want to with this step among other things on the way prepare, to take part in future statutory emission trade: the EU is considering, the primary and Secondary aluminium production in the EU-wide emissions trading scheme from 2013 to include.
