IPCC Software for the Workbook IPCC Software for the Workbook UNFCCC Workshop on the use of the guidelines for the preparation of national communications from non-Annex I Parties 10 April 2003 Port Louis, Mauritius Kiyoto Tanabe Technical Support Unit IPCC National Greenhouse Gas Inventories Programme
What is the IPCC Software? A tool to help users (inventory compilers) prepare national GHG inventories based on the Revised 1996 IPCC Guidelines It contains: Worksheets from the Workbook (Vol.2) Formulas are built in. (Tier 1/Default) Facilitate calculation of GHG emissions/removals Reporting tables from the Reporting Instructions (Vol.1) Linkages between relevant cells are built in. Facilitate reporting in accordance with the Guidelines.
Users For those who do not have a national inventory available already and are not experienced in producing such inventories The software will be quite useful. Even for those who have their national inventories based on their own methodology The software will be still a valuable tool for self- verification and/or for formatting the summary reporting tables. Note: There is no tool for transferring data automatically to this software.
Attention When running the software, the users should read: Software Manual (available in English, Spanish, French, Russian) Workbook of the Revised 1996 IPCC Guidelines The software should be used with the commercial spreadsheet application Excel, version 5 or a later version.
How to obtain and install It is recommended to download the software and its manual through the internet from the IPCC-NGGIP website: http://www.ipcc-nggip.iges.or.jp/public/gl/software.htm Guidance on how to install is given on the website. It is also available in the form of CDROM (for Good Practice Guidance and Uncertainty Management in National Greenhouse Gas Inventories), or in the form of Floppy Disks.
How to start Double-click the IPCC Software icon. Enable macros. Specify the year of inventory by: selecting a year from the drop-down list; or type in a new year (4 digits) Specify the template by: selecting a year that you want to use as a starting point; or selecting Blank sheets Then, Overview.xls will come up. Type in your contact information etc., and proceed to the next step.
Completing your inventory Clicking Sectors at the top of the screen, and select the sector you will work with. Then, a new file for that sector will be opened. Energy (Module1.xls) Industrial Processes (Module2.xls) Agriculture (Module4.xls) Land -Use Change and Forestry (Module5.xls) Waste (Module6.xls) Solvents and Other Product Use sector is not included in this software, because there is no Workbook methodology for this sector.
Energy sector module Contains the following worksheets. WS1-1: CO 2 from Energy Sources (Ref approach) WS1-2: CO 2 from Fuel Combustion by Source Categories (Tier 1) WS1-3: Non-CO 2 from Fuel Combustion by Source Categories (Tier 1) WS1-4: SO 2 emissions from Fuel Combustion by Source Categories (Tier 1) WS1-5: Emissions from Aircraft (Tier 2) WS1-6: Methane Emissions from Coal Mining and Handling WS1-7: Methane Emissions from Oil and Gas Activities (Tier 1) WS1-8: Ozone Precursors and SO2 from Refining
Industrial Processes sector module Contains the following worksheets. WS2-1: Cement Production WS2-2: Production of Lime WS2-3: Limestone and Dolomite Use WS2-4: Soda Ash Production and Use WS2-5: Production and Use of Miscellaneous Mineral Products WS2-6: Ammonia Production WS2-7: Nitric Acid Production WS2-8: Adipic Acid Production WS2-9: Carbide Production WS2-10: Production of Other Chemicals
Industrial Processes sector module Contains the following worksheets. WS2-11: Metal Production WS2-12: Pulp and Paper Industries WS2-13: Food and Drink WS2-14: Production of Halocarbons and Sulphur Hexafluoride WS2-15: Consumption of Halocarbons and Sulphur Hexafluoride
Agriculture sector module Contains the following worksheets. WS4-1: Methane and Nitrous Oxide Emissions from Domestic Livestock: Enteric Fermentation and Manure Management WS4-2: Methane Emissions from Flooded Rice Fields WS4-3: Prescribed Burning of Savannas WS4-4: Field Burning of Agricultural Residues WS4-5: Agricultural Soils
LUCF sector module Contains the following worksheets. WS5-1: Changes in Forest and Other Woody Biomass Stocks WS5-2: Forest and Grassland Conversion - CO 2 from Biomass WS5-3: On-site Burning of Forests - Non-CO 2 Trace Gases from Biomass Burning WS5-4: Abandonment of Managed Lands WS5-5: CO2 Emissions and Removals from Soil This module contains a slight modification of the methodology. WS5-5 has been extended so that many different land-use management systems can be included in the calculation.
Waste sector module Contains the following worksheets. WS6-1: Methane Emissions from Solid Waste Disposal Sites WS6-2: Methane Emissions from Domestic and Commercial Wastewater and Sludge Treatment WS6-3: Methane Emissions from Industrial Wastewater and Sludge Handling WS6-4: Indirect Nitrous Oxide Emissions from Human Sewage
Completion - Summary Tables While you are completing the sector worksheets, the sectoral and summary tables in Overview.xls will be filled automatically. Long Summary: Table 7A of the Reporting Instructions Short Summary: Table 7B of the Reporting Instructions Uncertainty: Table 8A of the Reporting Instructions (This table should be filled manually.)
