Certain suppliers or importers of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions will need to report the calendar year carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions associated with complete combustion of oxidation of their products sold in Washington. Starting as early as 2009 emissions reported in 2010, you must report if you meet both of the following conditions:
- Supplying or importing motor vehicle fule under RCW 82.36.031; or
- Supplying or importing special fuel under RCW 82.38.150; or
- Distributing aircraft fuel under RCW 82.42.040.
The following table lists the emissions factors needed to calculate the emissions associated with the complete combustion or oxidation of fuels sold in Washington. It also lists approximate fuel volumes that will trigger the mandatory reporting threshold. Any of the listed values are enough to require reporting. If you supply multiple fuels, then add the emissions associated with the fuels before applying the threshold.
|Fuel Type||Emissions Factor
(kg CO2 per gallon)*
|Approximate Fuel Sold in
WA to Meet 10,000 MT CO2 Threshold
(in Gallons per Year)
For more information, please see the GHG Fuel Supplier FAQ.
NOTE: This meeting focuses on reporting greenhouse gas emissions from fuel suppliers. Emissions from facilities and other sources will not be covdered.
On June 8, 2010, Ecology will hold an introductory meeting specifically for fuel suppliers who meet the 10,000 metric ton threshold. The meeting will discuss:
