fire iconMiscellaneous Combustion comprises facilities that reported GHG emissions from stationary fuel combustion sources only and that are not part of any other sector.

This category includes food processing, ethanol production, manufacturing operations, universities, military installations, and any combustion sources not included elsewhere, such as mining operations and hospitals.

2017 Total Reported Direct Emissions from Miscellaneous Combustion, by Subsector (as of 8/19/18)

Sum of percentages may not equal 100% due to independent rounding.
