New Report Details 25 Years of US Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Posted on 2/22/2016 by Roger Marks

On February 22, US EPA announced the release of a public draft inventory report of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the United States from 1990 to 2014.

Greenhouses gases are one of the major focuses of US EPA’s enforcement of the Clean Air Act. EPA requires industrial facilities that emit specific pollutants to report through the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program, or GHGRP.

The draft inventory EPA released organizes 25 years of greenhouse gas emissions data by source, industry sector, and specific pollutants—carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (NO2), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbonds (PFCs), sulfur hexafluoride (SF6), and nitrogen trifluoride (NF3).  

The report also includes information about “indirect” greenhouse gases, like carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulfur dioxide (SO2), and non-methane volatile organic compounds (NMVOCs).

EPA also recently announced its National Enforcement Initiatives for 2017–2019, which include cutting Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) and reducing air pollution from the nation’s largest sources.
