ON August 4, in a Federal Register notice, EPA has put forward a proposal allowing for a six-month delay to the 2012 deadline GHG emissions reporting for electronics manufacturers, petroleum and natural gas facilities, and several other industries to begin reporting their GHG emissions. EPA has said delaying requirements from March 31, 2012, to Sept. 28, 2012, will provide additional time for the development and testing of the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Tool (e-GGRT). The rule is for sources with emissions that exceed 25,000 tons per year in 2009, and EPA said it intends to issue the final rule by the end of 2011.
