Methodology of industry

Industry is an aggregation of economic activities of

  • Section C Mining and quarrying,
  • Section D Manufacturing and
  • Section E Electricity, gas and water supply

C - Mining and quarrying

Mining and quarrying include the extraction of minerals occurring naturally as solids (coal and ores), liquids (petroleum) or gases (natural gas). Extraction can be achieved by underground or surface mining or well operation.

This section includes supplementary activities aimed at preparing the crude materials for marketing, for example, crushing, grinding, cleaning, drying, sorting, concentrating ores, liquefaction of natural gas and agglomeration of solid fuels. These operations are often accomplished by the units that extracted the resource and/or others located nearby.

Mining activities are classified into divisions, groups and classes on the basis of the principal mineral produced. Divisions 10, 11 and 12 are concerned with mining and quarrying of energy producing materials (coal, lignite and peat, hydrocarbons, uranium ore); divisions 13 and 14 concern non-energy producing materials (metal ores, various minerals and quarry products).

This Section is divided into the following Divisions:

  1. Mining of coal and lignite; extraction of peat
  2. Extraction of crude petroleum and natural gas; service activities incidental to oil and gas extraction, excluding surveying
  3. Mining of uranium and thorium ores
  4. Mining of metal ores
  5. Other mining and quarrying

E - Electricity, gas and water supply

This section covers the activity of providing electric power, natural gas, steam supply, and water supply through a permanent infrastructure (network) of lines, mains and pipes. The dimension of the network is not decisive; also included are electricity, gas, steam and water supply and the like in industrial parks or blocks of flats.

Production, infrastructure management, and supplying end-users may be handled by the same or a different unit. Units engaged in the supply of electricity and/or gas and/or steam and hot water and/or water have to be classified according to their principal activity.

This Section is divided into the following Divisions:

  1. Electricity, gas, steam and hot water supply
  2. Collection, purification and distribution of water
