Subpart H Summary Information for this Facility

Subpart H requires you to report the following data about your facility:

  • Annual CO2 process emissions from cement manufacturing (metric tons)
  • Annual cement production for the facility (tons)
  • Annual Clinker Production (metric tons)
  • Annual average clinker CO2 emissions factor for the facility across all kilns (metric ton CO2 /metric ton clinker produced)
  • Annual average cement kiln dust (CKD) CO2 emission factor for the facility across all kilns (metric ton CO2 /metric ton CKD produced)
  • The total number of kilns at the facility
  • The total number of operating kilns

Subpart H Kiln Information

The required kiln information and the forms associated with required kiln information are entered into e-GGRT are different for kilns that are monitored by a Continuous Emissions Monitoring System (CEMS) and kilns that are NOT monitored by a CEMS.

As a result, separate help content has been created in this subpart for entering kiln information for kilns monitored by CEMS and kilns NOT monitored by CEMS.

For each kiln that is NOT monitored by CEMS at your facility, the following kiln information is required:

  • An indication of whether annual CO2 emissions from raw materials will be estimated based on consumption of individual raw materials or based on the amount of raw kiln feed consumed annually
  • A unique identifier and optional description
  • A unique identifier/description for each raw material consumed in the kiln during the reporting year (applies only if the estimate of annual CO2 emissions from raw materials is based on consumption of individual raw materials)

For each kiln that is monitored by CEMS at your facility, the following kiln information is required:

  • A unique identifier and optional description

Subpart H Emissions Information

Subpart H Cement Production does NOT require you to report CO2 process emissions for each kiln NOT monitored by CEMS.

CO2 process emissions for all kilns should be reported in the SUBPART H SUMMARY INFORMATION FOR THIS FACILITY table on the Subpart Overview page.

For each CEMS Monitoring Location, provide the following information:

  • A unique unit name or identifier for the CML (see also About Unique Unit Names)
  • An optional description or label for the CML
  • The configuration of processes or process units that are monitored by the CML:
    • Single industrial process or process unit that exhausts to a dedicated stack
    • Multiple industrial processes or process units share a common stack
    • Industrial process or process unit shares a common stack with one or more stationary fuel combustion units
  • The name of each fuel combusted in the unit(s) monitored by the CEMS
  • The Tier 4/CEMS methodology start and end dates
  • The cumulative total of hourly CO2 mass emissions for each quarter of the reporting year (in metric tons) (Do not cumulate emissions data between quarters)
  • The total annual CO2 mass emissions measured by the CEMS (in metric tons)
  • An indication whether emissions reported for the CEMS include emissions calculated according to 98.33(a)(4)(viii) for a slipstream that bypassed the CEMS
  • The total annual biogenic CO2 emissions from the combustion of all biomass fuels combined (in metric tons) (if applicable)
  • The total annual non-biogenic CO2 emissions (includes fossil fuel, sorbent, and process CO2 emissions, in metric tons)
  • The total annual CH4 and N2O emissions associated with the combustion of all Table C-2 fuels combusted in all processes/process units monitored by the CEMS derived from application of Equation C-10 (in metric tons) (if there are no combustion emissions in this CML, please enter zero)
  • The total number of source operating hours in the reporting year
  • The total operating hours in which a substitute data value was used in the emissions calculations for the CO2 concentration parameter
  • The total operating hours in which a substitute data value was used in the emissions calculations for the stack gas flow rate parameter
  • If moisture correction is required and a continuous moisture monitor is used, the total operating hours in which a substitute data value was used in the emissions calculations for the stack gas moisture content parameter
  • The name/identifier of the process units monitored by the CML

Subpart H Validation Report

The Validation Report assists you with determining the completeness and quality of your reported data.

We strongly encourage you to use the Validation Report to check your work. The Validation Report performs two types of checks:

  • Data Completeness: Data required for reporting that are missing or incomplete.
  • Data Quality: Data that are outside of the expected range of values.

Certain validation checks which are considered to represent critical errors must be corrected before you can successfully generate and submit your Annual Report. These checks are signified with a stop sign . If you feel that you have triggered one of these critical “stop signs” checks in error, or if there’s a reason why your report should be submitted despite the check being triggered, please submit a request to the e-GGRT Help Desk at GHGReporting@epa.gov.

You may view the Validation Report at any time.

Note that the Validation Report is intended to assist users in entering data, but it is not an indication that the reporter has entered all necessary information, nor is it an indication that the reporter is in compliance with part 98. Furthermore, a negative finding on the validation report is not a guarantee that a data element was entered incorrectly. For more detail on the Validation Report and its functionality please review the Subpart Validation Report page.
