USA - EPA to require greenhouse gas reporting

On Jan. 1, 2010, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will, for the first time, require large emitters of heat-trapping emissions to begin collecting greenhouse gas data under a new reporting system. This new program will cover approximately 85 percent of the nation's greenhouse gas emissions and apply to roughly 10,000 facilities.

On Jan. 1, 2010, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will, for the first time, require large emitters of heat-trapping emissions to begin collecting greenhouse gas data under a new reporting system. This new program will cover approximately 85 percent of the nation's greenhouse gas emissions and apply to roughly 10,000 facilities.

The only emission source in the agriculture sector covered by the rule is manure management systems at livestock operations with greenhouse gas emissions that meet or exceed the threshold of 25,000 metric tons, according to an EPA Frequently Asked Questions supplement. EPA modeling estimates that just over 100 manure management systems at large livestock operations meet this threshold.
