Aluminum

Aluminum smelting is a carbon emissions intensive industry. Aluminum smelting accounts for over 3% of the world’s total electricity use and the largest source of emissions from primary aluminum smelting is electrical power. Energy intensity for the industry has declined over time. Energy efficiency measures have been adopted, older less efficient plants are closed and replaced with new, more efficient plants, and producers look to use low or no carbon electricity sources.

The drive to reduce the carbon emissions intensity of aluminum production has prompted producers to research and develop innovative ideas to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions.

Ammonia

Ammonia is the world’s most energy-intensive commodity chemical, responsible for 1% – 2% of global energy consumption and 1.8% of global CO₂ emissions. Approximately 90% of the carbon emissions are from the production of hydrogen − for every ton of hydrogen, 9 tons of CO₂ are also produced.

Due to its substantial carbon footprint, the ammonia industry is coming under increased scrutiny as a target for industrial decarbonization efforts. As the Energy Transition gains momentum, ammonia producers will face increased pressure to develop and implement individually tailored decarbonization strategies while staying competitive.

Refining

Refineries have a high carbon risk due to direct (Scope 1) and indirect (Scope 2 & 3) greenhouse gas emissions. The ACRI model covers Scope 1 and 2 emissions and includes over 730 refineries with capacity of 65,000 barrels/year of coastal refining capacity and 30,000 barrels/year of inland refining capacity. These refineries are from across 20 different countries, the 5 US PADD regions and the rest of the world. We base the Advisian Carbon Risk Index on archetypal refineries − hydroskimming, cracking, coking and visbreaking− which represent most of the global refining base.
