Study for the Nitric Acid Climate Action Group (NACAG) on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK)

Mitigation potentials for emissions of nitrous oxide from chemical industry in industrialised countries world-wide

This study investigates mitigation potentials in industrialised countries for emissions of the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide (N2O) from chemical industry, in particular from the production processes for nitric acid, adipic acid and caprolactam.

The study was launched by the Secretariat of the Nitric Acid Climate Action Group (NACAG1), a global climate change initiative launched by the German Government with the objective to globally support the mitigation of N2O emissions from nitric acid production in developing countries. The secretariat of NACAG initiative is implemented by the German Technical Cooperation (GIZ).
