The Environmental Protection Agency launched its Electronic Greenhouse Gas Reporting Tool August 22. The tool will allow 27 industrial sectors to submit their 2010 greenhouse gas emissions data electronically, and collected data will provide the public with information about the country’s largest stationary source emissions. Non-confidential data will be made public by the end of the year, though some confidential business information will be provided to contractors as they fulfill EPA contracts, including verifying the data itself. For factors that can be quickly evaluated, industries will be required to report their calculation inputs by March 31, 2013; for longer evaluations, they will have until the end of March 2015.
