EPA deferred reporting of certain Subpart CC data elements, all of which were equation inputs, until March 31, 2015. See 76 FR 53057 (published August 25, 2011). A facility subject to subpart CC must submit a deferred data report if it used the “site-specific emission factor” method to calculate emissions for a manufacturing line. 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 3 units can be reported in separate tabs of a single subpart CC deferred data reporting form. If you have more than 3 units, use additional copies of the reporting form file.

Follow the step-by-step instructions below for completing and submitting the subpart CC 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 this facility report Subpart CC data in RY2010? Select either "Yes" or "No" from the dropdown to indicate whether or not you reported data for subpart CC for RY2010.
  • Comments (optional). 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 subpart CC data for the reporting year in question. You also may add reporting year-specific comments in the optional Comments data entry cell.

Step 2. Enter Soda Ash Manufacturing Line Information in Part 2

Complete the following information for each soda ash manufacturing line that used the Site-specific emission factor method in their GHG reporting for Reporting Year 2010:

  • Manufacturing line name/ID
  • Stack gas volumetric flow rate during the performance test in dscfm
  • Hourly CO2 concentration during the performance test in percent CO2
  • Average process vent flow rate from the mine water stripper/evaporator during the performance test  in pounds/hour) 
  • Annual process vent flow rate from the mine water stripper/evaporator in thousand pounds/hour
  • CO2 emission factor of process vent flow from mine water in metric tons CO2/metric ton of process vent flow from mine water stripper/evaporator
  • CO2 emission mass emission rate during the performance test in metric tons/hour

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

Enter the facility information and manufacturing line information (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 Reporters Using e-GGRT Webforms

From the Facility or Supplier Overview page of your RY2014 report, use the "Click Here" link beneath the REPORT DATA table to open the Back Year reporting page.

Click this link to expand

In the UPLOAD COMPLETED BACK YEAR REPORTING FORM(S) section of the Back Year reporting page, click the "+ADD an Attachment" link below the table.

Click this link to expand

This action will open the Back Year Reporting Upload page. Under "Select the subpart for the uploaded file," click the radio button for the subpart for which you are uploading a deferred reporting form. Click the "Browse" button, select the reporting form file you wish to upload, and click "OPEN." Click the "Upload" button to upload the file and attach it to your RY2014 report.

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.
