Q804. What factors could have influenced greenhouse gas trends in the chemical pulp and paper production industry?

 

A804. In the pulp and paper industry (Subpart AA), emissions between 2012 and 2013 appear to have declined sharply. This can in part be attributed to a change in the emission factors used to estimate methane and nitrous oxide emissions from the combustion of spent pulping liquor and wood residuals. A change in the emission factors for methane and nitrous oxide as part of the 2013 technical corrections package contributed to the observed decline in reported emissions.
