Q363. Does the information from the Reporting Forms populate e-GRRT fields or are they just uploaded files? If automatically populated, are these values available for review before submitting the report?
A363. Once you have uploaded the spreadsheets, you will be required to enter some summary data into e-GGRT online. For subpart OO, this summary data consists of the supplier's net addition to the supply of each industrial GHG. The net addition is calculated for you on the "summary" tab of the workbook; you may wish to have a copy of this "summary" spreadsheet convenient for the e-GGRT data entry step. Once you enter the data on the net addition to the supply, that data will be added to your roll-up calculation, which you can review before submitting. The spreadsheet data will not populate e-GGRT fields. The spreadsheets will simply accompany the GHG report that is submitted. You can review the spreadsheets themselves to verify that you have correctly entered the data into them.
For production facilities, the net addition to the supply is calculated by subtracting the quantities of each industrial GHG transformed or destroyed from the quantity of that GHG produced. Note that if a facility produces and transforms or creates and destroys an industrial GHG without ever sending that industrial GHG off-site, it does not need to report its production, transformation, or destruction of that industrial GHG under subpart OO. However, if the facility produces an industrial GHG and also accepts that industrial GHG from outside the facility for transformation or destruction, it does need to report the quantities produced, transformed, and destroyed under subpart OO, and it does need to calculate its net addition to the supply of that GHG for input into e-GGRT.
For importers and exporters, the net addition to the supply is calculated by subtracting the quantities of each industrial GHG exported (and, in some cases, destroyed) from the quantity of that GHG imported.
Note that your net addition to the supply of a particular industrial GHG may be negative, e.g., if you export that industrial GHG but do not import it.
