521 IPCC: Industrial Processes and Other Product Use


This course provides a rigorous training on the emission sources and estimation methodologies for the industrial processes and other product use sector based on the internationally endorsed 2006 IPCC Guidelines. This course should be combined with the Institute’s 501 IPCC: Introduction and Cross-Cutting Issues course.

Course Lessons:

  1. Introduction and overview
  2. Mineral products
  3. Chemical industry
  4. Metal industry
  5. Non-energy products from fuels and solvent use
  6. Electronics industry
  7. Fluorinated substitutes for ozone depleting substances
  8. Other project manufacture and use
  9. Potential emissions methodology (HFCs, PFCs and SF6)
    (optional lesson for national GHG inventory learners)
  • The course includes quizzes and exercises to help you learn to apply key lessons.

Approximate number of working hours to complete: 40

Recommended Effort: 3-5 hours a day over the course of 5-8 days, depending on your goals. More time may be needed for Lessons 3 and 4, which are longer in length.

Availability: This course is available online, 24/7

Level: Intermediate

* It is recommended that this course be combined with the introductory course, 501 IPCC: Introduction and Cross-Cutting Issues.

Languages: English and French

Certificate of Proficiency: Yes, available and requires the passing of an exam for an additional fee.

Who should attend: This course is designed for anyone using, developing or working with greenhouse emissions and removal estimation and GHG inventories. It is recommended that you have some prior knowledge of technical and policy matters related to climate change (i.e., basic concepts of climate science, greenhouse gases, radiative forcing, etc.). But it is not necessary to have extensive prior experience in GHG inventories or GHG accounting. The course is especially useful for GHG program officers, environmental officers from government or the private sector, and professionals involved in industrial processing. You are not required to have prior experience on the GHG estimation methodologies. Upon completion, you will have expert level knowledge and skills necessary to use and/or prepare GHG emission estimates from industrial process-related emission sources.

Course Applicability: A unique aspect of this series of courses is that it is applicable to all GHG measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) programs and accounting frameworks, including:

  • National
  • Sub-national (province, state, municipality)
  • Sectoral/program/policy (NAMAs, REDD+)
  • Entity (organization, company, or individual)
  • Product/Supply chain/Technology (life-cycle)
  • Facility/Installation
  • Project/Activity

The course was developed by the GHG Management Institute with the support of the USAID Low Emission Asian Development (LEAD) program.
