Non-Energy Use
Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC)

European Commission - Eurostat
Non-energy use covers use of other petroleum products such as white spirit, paraffin waxes, lubricants, bitumen and other products. It also includes the non-energy use of coal (excluding peat). These products are shown separately in final consumption under the heading non-energy use. It is assumed that the use of these products is exclusively non-energy use. It should be noted that petroleum coke is included as non-energy use only when there is evidence of such use; otherwise it is included as energy use in industry or in other sectors.

The reporting focuses on specific fuels such as oil and gas. Non energy use includes energy products used as raw materials in the different sectors; that is not consumed as a fuel or transformed into another fuel. For example most lubricants and bitumen are used for non-energy purposes. Similarly natural gas is used as a raw material for the petrochemical industry etc.

Latin American Energy Organization (OLADE)
This sector is defined by the consumers that use energy sources as raw material for the manufacture of non–energy source goods. Here are some examples:

- Natural gas and petroleum derivatives (naphtha, reformatting, refinery gas, etc.), consumed in petrochemistry to make plastics, solvents, polymers, rubber, etc.
- Bagasse for making paper or pressed board
- Animal waste as fertilizers
- Plant wastes as feed for cattle

Note:
Some non–energy products such as asphalt for “construction” and lubricants for “transportation” are frequently placed in the respective sectors (construction and transportation) and not in the non-energy sector. However, the practice of placing them in the non–energy source sector is valid, since the use of these products is not for energy.

UNSD Energy Statistics Section
Non-energy use - consumption for non-energy uses refers to the quantity of energy products consumed as raw materials in the chemical, petrochemical and other industries, not in order to produce energy.
