The Industry emission estimations follow the IPCC 2006 reporting format. The unit level dataset of the Annual Survey of Industries (ASI) is the prime source of information for estimating industrial energy use emissions. This unit level data was reconciled against (aggregated) national data available from other ministries and departments of the Government of India, and also from other secondary sources of information such as the industry associations. Official India specific (Tier 2) emission factors are used wherever available (mainly coal, lignite and carbonaceous feedstock materials). Separate emission factors are specified for imported coal. Where Tier 2 factors are not available, default IPCC emission factors are used.
