Other Resources

  • Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (GHGRP) - EPA's GHGRP tracks facility-level emissions from the largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States.  
  • Greenhouse Gas Equivalency Calculator - This calculator allows users to translate common units of measure, such as pounds of methane or metric tons of carbon dioxide, to everyday terms including greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from passenger cars or carbon sequestered by pine forests.
  • Oil and Natural Gas Air Pollution Standards - This page provides information about emissions from the oil and natural gas industry; links to proposed and final rules, fact sheets, and other rulemaking documents; and technical information about the air toxics standards under review.
  • e-MATRIXExit - This information exchange project of the Environmental Council of the States (ECOS) Shale Gas Caucus, provides easy access to State information on best practices and cost-effective technologies that reduce air emissions at points along oil and gas systems.
