Technology upgrades can ease GHG reporting requirements

Technology and equipment providers are wasting no time in responding to the U.S. EPA's greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting requirements. The EPA's finalized GHG reporting rule will require 10,000 facilities, including many ethanol producers, to begin collecting emissions data on Jan. 1 and it is expected that most of those facilities will also soon be regulated and required to participate in the Title V permitting process, as recently proposed by the EPA. Fluid Components International, a global supplier of thermal mass gas flow meters, has launched a Customer GHG Reporting Fast Track Initiative to aid its customers as they prepare to comply with the reporting program. "We recognize that accurate measurement of GHG flow is important for compliance and the global environment, and [we] are ready to do our part in helping our customers meet this challenge," FCI President Dan McQueen said.READ MORE

EPA expects 86 ethanol facilities to be major GHG emitters

The U.S. EPA said 86 U.S. ethanol production facilities will qualify as "major" sources of greenhouse gases (GHGs) and be required to obtain Title V permits if the agency's GHG regulation rule passes as it proposed. The agency released its proposed rule for the regulation of GHGs on Sept. 30. The Prevention of Significant Deterioration and Title V Greenhouse Gas Tailoring Rule seeks to regulate all industrial facilities that produce more than 25,000 tons per year of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) from stationary combustion sources by subjecting those sources to twice annual self-compliance reports and permitting fees.READ MORE
