The EPA published a final rule on June 22 that will reconsider portions of a rule requiring electronics manufacturers to report their GHG emissions. Additionally, EPA is extending until Sept. 30 (from June 30th) the period in which relevant manufacturers can calculate their emissions alternate methods without obtaining prior approval. These changes in reporting requirements came in response to a petition from the Semiconductor Industry Association. On the same day, EPA also issued a proposed rule to change the emissions monitoring and calculation provisions of the reporting rule. This change would provide the largest manufacturers more flexibility in how they report their fluorinated greenhouse gas emissions through 2011 and 2012.
