Greenhouse Gas Emitters Must File Reports

     WASHINGTON (CN) – The Environmental Protection Agency will require reporting of greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel suppliers and industrial gas suppliers, direct greenhouse gas emitters and manufacturers of heavy-duty and off-road vehicles and engines.

     The new regulation does not require control of greenhouse gases; it requires only that sources above certain threshold levels monitor and report emissions to the EPA. The agency believes that 85 percent of U.S. GHG emissions will be monitored through reporting by direct emitters as well as suppliers of fossil fuels and industrial gases and manufacturers of heavy-duty and off-road vehicles and engines.
     The rule requires reporting of annual emissions of carbon dioxide methane, nitrous oxide, sulfur hexafluoride, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, and other fluorinated gases including nitrogen trifluoride and hydrofluorinated ethers.
