Some facilities and suppliers subject to the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (GHGRP) might also report to other voluntary or mandatory emissions monitoring programs.
CAMD Business System (CBS) and ECMPS (part 75)
CBS (part 75) reporters will need to register their facilities and report GHGRP emissions using the Electronic Greenhouse Gas Reporting Tool (e-GGRT). EPA will allow current CBS users to import their part 75 facility profile information into e-GGRT. Note that the Designated Representative at a part 75 facility must be the same person for the GHGRP.
If your facility is an ozone season reporter, you may elect to use the alternative methodology in 98.33(a)(5) to calculate and report CO2 emissions year round for GHGRP purposes. You must submit data using ECMPS beginning in the first quarter of 2010 and throughout the entire year.
OTAQ – Suppliers of Coal Based Liquids or Petroleum Products
Suppliers of Coal-based Liquid Fuels (subpart LL) and Suppliers of Petroleum Products (subpart MM) will follow OTAQ procedures to report GHG data for those subparts. Registration and reporting for other GHGRP subparts must be through e-GGRT. Additional information on using OTAQ procedures to report GHG data can be found on the General OTAQ Registration and General OTAQ Reporting Forms pages.
State Reporting Programs
As part of EPA's longstanding commitment to the Environmental Information Exchange Network, EPA is participating in a State-EPA Greenhouse Gas Integrated Project Team (IPT). Through the IPT, EPA is coordinating with states on the development of reporting and exchange schemas for the GHGRP. As states implement state-level GHG reporting rules, EPA has agreed to include, where possible, state data elements in the e-GGRT reporting schema. EPA is also exploring the possibility of allowing facilities subject to both federal and state GHG reporting requirements to upload their data annually, via a single Extensible Markup Language (XML) reporting schema, to EPA to satisfy both federal and state reporting requirements. EPA would then pass state-level GHG data reported by a facility or supplier directly to applicable states.
