§ 95103. General Greenhouse Gas Reporting Requirements.
General Reporting Requirements. The operators listed in section 95101(b), except as provided in section 95103(e), shall submit greenhouse gas emissions data reports on the schedule specified in section 95103(b).
The operator shall submit a report for the 2008 report year that applies best available data and methods to develop emissions estimates. The operator shall submit reports for 2009 and subsequent report years that meet all specifications of this article.
Stationary Sources. The operator shall identify, calculate, and report CO2, N2O, CH4, SF6, HFC, and PFC emissions from stationary combustion, process, and fugitive sources at the facility as specified in sections 95110 through 95115. The operator shall calculate and report each GHG separately for each fuel type used. The operator shall monitor and report fuel consumption for the facility, and for each process unit or group of units where fuel use is separately metered.
The operator shall separately identify, calculate and report all direct emissions of CO2 resulting from combustion of biomass-derived fuels as specified in sections 95110 through 95115.
Mobile Sources. The operator may elect to identify, calculate, and separately report facility CO2, N2O, and CH4 emissions from mobile combustion. For those gases selected for voluntary reporting, the operator shall calculate mobile combustion emissions using the methods specified in section 95125(i).
The operator shall separately calculate and report consumption of purchased or acquired electricity, heat, cooling or steam when specified in sections 95110 through 95115.
Emissions Calculation and Reporting Procedures for De Minimis Sources. The operator may elect to designate as de minimis one or more sources that collectively produce no more than 3 percent of the facility’s total CO2 equivalent emissions, not to exceed 20,000 metric tonnes CO2 equivalent emissions. The operator may estimate emissions for these de minimis sources using alternative methods of the operator’s choosing, subject to the concurrence of the verification team that the use of such methods provides reasonable assurance that the emissions so designated and estimated do not exceed the applicable de minimis limits. The operator shall separately identify and include in the emissions data report the emissions from designated de minimis sources. The operator shall determine CO2 equivalence according to the 100-year global warming potentials provided in Appendix A.
