Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program

Other

Other Combustion icon.This sector consists of underground coal mines, electronics manufacturing, electrical equipment manufacturing and electrical transmission and distribution systems. The sector also includes stationary fuel combustion from miscellaneous commercial, institutional, and industrial facilities not covered under other sectors (e.g., ethanol production, food processing, and other manufacturing processes). Emissions from industrial waste landfills and industrial wastewater treatment at these facilities are included in the waste sector.
