Subpart SS - Equation SS-1

### Subpart SS - Equation SS-1

The Equation SS-1 worksheet should be completed by all facilities. General facility information and missing data information is required in section 2a.. Inventory, acquisition, and disbursement information is required in sections 2b, 2c and 2d. Then, Section 2e calculates emissions using Equation SS-1 and the data entered in sections 2b, 2c and 2d. Cells should be left blank for gases that are not applicable.

##### 2a.) Fill out the following table with information about this facility and your use of missing data for required data elements pursuant to 98.3(c)(8) for each applicable gas.

For each GHG identified, complete the following table to indicate whether or not missing data are used. If yes for a column, provide the reason the data is missing and the method used to estimate substitute data.

For perspective the entire table width is presented below. Enlarged views of this table are presented below the perspective view. The following example shows the first 9 columns:

• SF6 or PFC
• Were missing data used for the pounds of GHG stored in containers at the beginning of the year? [§98.456(a)/(t)]
• If yes, report the reason the data were missing [§98.456(a)/(t)]
• If Yes, report the method used to estimate the substitute data [§98.456(a)/(t)]
• Were missing data used for the pounds of GHG stored in containers at the end of the year? [§98.456(b)/(t)]
• If yes, report the reason the data were missing [§98.456(b)/(t)]
• If Yes, report the method used to estimate the substitute data  [§98.456(b)/(t)]
• Were missing data used for the pounds of GHG purchased in bulk during the year? [§98.456(c)/(t)]
• If yes, report the reason the data were missing [§98.456(c)/(t)] The following example shows the next 9 columns:

• If Yes, report the method used to estimate the substitute data  [§98.456(c)/(t)]
• Were missing data used for the pounds of GHG returned by equipment users with or inside equipment during the year? [§98.456(d)/(t)]
• If yes, report the reason the data were missing [§98.456(d)/(t)]
• If Yes, report the method used to estimate the substitute data [§98.456(d)/(t)]
• Were missing data used for the pounds of GHG returned to the site from offsite after recycling during the year? [§98.456(e)/(t)]
• If yes, report the reason the data were missing [§98.456(e)/(t)]
• If Yes, report the method used to estimate the substitute data [§98.456(e)/(t)]
• Were missing data used for the pounds of GHG inside new equipment delivered during the year? [§98.456(f)/(t)]
• If yes, report the reason the data were missing [§98.456(f)/(t)] The following example shows the next 9 columns:

• If Yes, report the method used to estimate the substitute data [§98.456(f)/(t)]
• Were missing data used for the pounds of GHG delivered to equipment users during the year? [§98.456(g)/(t)]
• If yes, report the reason the data were missing [§98.456(g)/(t)]
• If Yes, report the method used to estimate the substitute data [§98.456(g)/(t)]
• Were missing data used for the pounds of GHG returned to suppliers during the year? [§98.456(h)/(t)]
• If yes, report the reason the data were missing [§98.456(h)/(t)]
• If Yes, report the method used to estimate the substitute data [§98.456(h)/(t)]
• Were missing data used for the pounds of GHG sent offsite for destruction during the year? [§98.456(i)/(t)]
• If yes, report the reason the data were missing [§98.456(i)/(t)] The final example shows the last 9 columns:

• If Yes, report the method used to estimate the substitute data [§98.456(i)/(t)]
• Were missing data used for the pounds of GHG sent offsite to be recycled during the year? [§98.456(j)/(t)]
• If yes, report the reason the data were missing [§98.456(j)/(t)]
• If Yes, report the method used to estimate the substitute data [§98.456(j)/(t)]
• Were missing data used for determining the nameplate capacity of the equipment delivered to customers with GHG inside? [§98.456(k)/(t)]
• If yes, report the reason the data were missing [§98.456(k)/(t)]
• If Yes, report the method used to estimate the substitute data  [§98.456(k)/(t)]
• Is the nameplate capacity of the equipment, in pounds, delivered to customers with each GHG inside the same as the quantity reported as present inside new equipment delivered to customers? [§98.456(k)]
• If no, report the nameplate capacity of the equipment delivered with GHG inside. (pounds) [§98.456(k)] ##### 2b.) Enter the required equation inputs in the table to calculate the Decrease in SF6 and PFC Inventories according to the equation below for each applicable gas (§98.453(a)). To override a calculated result and report an alternative value, use columns B5 & B6 in the table.

For each GHG identified, e-GGRT will require you to report the pounds of SF6 and PFCs stored in containers at the beginning and end of the year. ##### 2c.) Enter the required equation inputs in the table to calculate the Acquisitions of SF6 and PFC according to the equation below for each applicable gas (§98.453(a)). To override a calculated result and report an alternative value, use columns C6 & C7 in the table.

For each GHG identified, e-GGRT will require you to report the pounds of SF6 and PFCs that were:

• Purchased in bulk.
• Returned by equipment users with or inside equipment.
• Returned to the site from off-site after recycling. If you report that a GHG was sent off site for recycling at the end of the year and that GHG is returned to the facility at the beginning of the next year, the transfer will be reported as a disbursement in one year and an acquistion in the next year. Negative emissions are not to be permitted according to 98.454(h)(2). ##### 2d.) Enter the required equation inputs in the table to calculate the Disbursements of SF6 and PFC according to the equation below for each applicable gas (§98.453(a)). To override a calculated result and report an alternative value, use columns D8 & D9 in the table.

For each GHG identified, e-GGRT will require you to report the pounds of SF6 and PFCs that were:

• Inside new equipment delivered to customers during the year.
• Delivered to equipment users in containers during the year.
• Returned to suppliers during the year.
• Sent offsite for destruction during the year.
• Sent offsite to be recycled during the year. If you report that a GHG was sent off site for recycling at the end of the year and that GHG is returned to the facility at the beginning of the next year, the transfer will be reported as a disbursement in one year and an acquistion in the next year. Negative emissions are not to be permitted according to 98.454(h)(2). ##### 2e.) The table below calculates pounds of User Emissions per gas using to Equation SS-1 and your entries in sections 2b-2d above. All calculations are made using unrounded values.

There is no data entry into this table as it does the calculations from your entries into 2b-2d.
