Regulatory Update - Final Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gases Rule

Today the EPA published the final Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gases rules in the Federal Register today.  The final rule is effective December 29, 2009, with reporting requirements in March 2011. Emissions of the six (6) major GHGs must be reported, including carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and nitrous oxide (N2O), from combustion sources. Emissions of these GHGs are converted to carbon dioxide equivalents, CO2e, and must be reported in metric tons.

Does this apply to you?

The EPA set-up four broad categories in order to identify sources that must report under the program:

(1) Specifically designated facilities, including electric generating facilities.

(2) Facilities that emit more than 25,000 metric tons (MT) of CO2e per year in combined emissions from stationary fuel combustion units and sources in listed categories.

(3) Facilities that meet the following three conditions:

a. not identified in either of the other two categories;

b. aggregate design heat input from stationary fuel combustion units at the facility is greater than 30 MMBtu/hr; and,

c. the facility emits more than 25,000 MT CO2e per year.
