New EPA reporting deadlines coming up By Mary Ellen Ternes


Have you determined whether or not your hospital or medical care facility needs to report greenhouse gas emissions pursuant to EPA's October 30, 2009, mandatory greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reporting rule? Have you heard about this 2009 rule? Reporting deadlines are coming up March 31, 2011, with an earlier registration deadline of January 30, 2011, for many designated categories, including one general category: stationary fuel combustion sources.

Stationary fuel combustion sources include facilities utilizing any device that combusts solid, liquid, or gaseous fuel generally to produce electricity, steam, useful heat, or energy for industrial, commercial, or institutional use, or reduce the volume of waste by burning off combustible matter. Devices within the scope of this rule include, but are not limited to, boilers, combustion turbines, engines, incinerators, and process heaters. The rule specifically excludes portable equipment, emergency generators, emergency equipment and pilot lights, among other exclusions.
