GHGRP 2012: 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 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.
- 2012 Total Reported Direct Emissions from Other, by Subsector (as of 9/1/13).
- Trend of Annual Reported GHG Emissions by Subsector (as of 9/1/13).
- Location and emissions range for each reporting facility in the other sector (as of 9/1/13).
This map shows the locations of direct-emitting facilities. The size of a circle corresponds to the quantity of emissions reported by that facility.

- Totals may not equal sum of individual GHGs due to independent rounding.
- NR means that this value was not reported for the 2010 reporting year.
Process emissions from underground coal mines, electronics manufacturing, electrical equipment manufacturing and electrical transmission and distribution systems were reported beginning in 2011. These emissions are included in the table above. Emissions from these source categories totaled 40 million metric tons CO2e in 2011 and 36 million metric tons CO2e in 2012.
CO2e emissions from the combustion of biomass are NOT included in emissions totals provided above.
