Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (GHGRP)

GHGRP 2011: Other Sectors

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 all other commercial, institutional, and industrial facilities not covered under other sectors (e.g., ethanol production, food processing, and other manufacturing). Emissions from industrial waste landfills and industrial wastewater treatment at these facilities are included in the waste sector.

Other Sector — Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reported to the GHGRP
(all emissions values presented in million metric tons CO2e unless otherwise noted)
  2011 2010
Number of facilities:  1,377 1,032
Total emissions (CO2e): 126 89
Emissions by greenhouse gas (CO2e)
• Carbon dioxide (CO2): 90 161
• Methane (CH4): 28 **
• Nitrous oxide (N2O): ** **
• Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs): ** NR
• Perfluorocarbons (PFCs): 2 NR
• Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6): 5 NR
• Nitrogen trifluoride (NF3): 1 NR
  • NR means that this value was not reported for the 2010 reporting year.
  • ** Total reported emissions are less than 0.5 million metric tons CO2e.

Process emissions from underground coal mines, electronics manufacturing, electrical equipment manufacturing and electrical transmission and distribution systems were reported in 2011 but not in 2010. These emissions are included in the table above. Total emissions from these source categories in 2011 were 37.6 MMT CO2e.

CO2 emissions from the combustion of biomass are NOT included in emissions totals provided above.
