Emission reduction measures undertaken/to be undertaken at a facility (only relevant for calculated baselines)
Perfluorocarbons (PFCs) are smelting process emissions with high global warming potentials. These are created when a reduction line cell has an anode effect. Since 1990, Bell Bay Smelter has reduced its direct emissions per tonne of aluminium by around 75 per cent to the current level of between 1.8 t CO2-e / t aluminium and 1.9 t CO2-e / t aluminium. Bell Bay has implemented projects including improved cell process control and anode effect management to deliver the significant reduction in PFC emissions during this time period.
Annually adjusted baseline (applies to production adjusted baselines only)
