Skip to end of metadata
Go to start of metadata

EPA deferred reporting of certain Subpart H data elements, all of which were equation inputs, until March 31, 2015. See 76 FR 53057 (published August 25, 2011). The deferred data element that must be reported by any facility with a kiln not monitored by CEMS is the CKD CO2 emission factor for each quarter. In addition to reporting the deferred data for the current reporting year (RY2014), facilities are required to report these data for all previous reporting years (RY2010, RY2011, RY2012, and RY2013).

Deferred data for RY2010, RY2011, RY2012, and RY2013 for up to 5 units can be reported in separate tabs of a single subpart H deferred data reporting form. If you have more than 5 units, use additional copies of the reporting form file.

Follow the step-by-step instructions below for completing and submitting the subpart H deferred data reporting form.

Step 1. Enter Facility Information in Part 1

On the RY2010 tab, enter the following information in the Part 1 - Facility Information section shown in the screen shot below:

  • Facility Name. Enter the exact name used in registering the facility in e-GGRT.
  • GHGRP ID. Enter the GHGRP ID assigned to the facility when it was registered in e-GGRT.
  • Did the facility report cement kilns not monitored by CEMs in 2010? Select either "Yes" or "No" from the dropdown to indicate whether or not you reported cement kiln not monitored using a CEMS for RY2010.
  • Comments. Enter any comments regarding the deferred data submitted for RY2010. This field is optional.

On the tabs for RY2011, RY2012 and RY2013, you will not have to re-enter the Facility Name and GHGRP ID. However, you must indicate whether or not you reported cement kilns not monitored by CEMs for the reporting year in question. You also may add reporting year-specific comments in the optional Comments data entry cell.

Step 2. Enter Cement Production Unit Information

Complete the following information for each cement production unit for each kiln not monitored by CEMS for Reporting Year 2010:

  • A Unique Unit Name/ID
  • An Optional Description of the unit
  • Indicate whether or not the cement kiln's emissions are monitored using a CEMS by selecting "Yes" or "No" from the dropdown
  • The Kiln-specific CKD CO2 Emission Factor used for each quarter of the reporting year

Step 3. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 for the Remaining Reporting Years

Enter the facility information and production unit information (i.e., repeat Steps 1 and 2) for RY2011, RY2012 and RY2013. When you have finished entering data for all units and reporting years, save the spreadsheet file.

Step 4. Upload the Reporting Form With Your RY2014 Report

Deferred reporting forms must be submitted as part of your RY2014 report. Follow the applicable instructions below for reporters that use e-GGRT webforms or the XML reporting option. 

Note: Back-year reporting forms for Subpart W (Petroleum and Natural Gas Systems) should be uploaded on the Subpart W Overview page.

For XML Reporters

If you submit your RY2014 report using XML, your XML submission must identify the subpart and filename for any deferred submission. For Subpart W Deferred data, your XML must comply with the schema defined in GHG_SubPartW_Deferred_v5.2.xsd.  For other subparts with deferred data, your XML must comply with GHG_FacilitySiteAllDetails_v5.2.xsd and your submission must include your XML and any applicable Excel-based deferred data reporting forms in the .zip file that you upload in e-GGRT. For detailed instructions on how to incorporate deferred data reporting forms in your RY2014 XML submission, see XML Reporting Instructions.
