EPA deferred reporting of certain Subpart O 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 O must submit a deferred data report if the HFC-23 concentration measured pursuant to §98.154(l) is greater than that measured during the performance test that is the basis for the destruction efficiency (DE). 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 a single subpart O 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 O 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.
  • Reporting Period. Select the current reporting year from the dropdown.

Step 2. Enter On-Site HFC-23 Destruction Process Information for RY2010

Complete the information below for any destruction process in which the HFC-23 concentration measured pursuant to 98.154(l) was greater than that measured during the performance test that was the basis for the destruction efficiency for that unit. If you have more than 5 such destruction processes in RY2010 or any other reporting year, use additional copies of the reporting form file.

  • A Unique Name/Identifier for each Destruction Process
  • A Description of Destruction Process (optional)
  • The Concentration of HFC-23 at the outlet of the destruction device (mass fraction)
  • The Flow rate at the outlet of the destruction device (kg/hr)
  • The Emission rate of HFC-23 (kg/hour)

Step 3. Repeat Step 2 for the Remaining Reporting Years

Enter the process information 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.
