Posted: 11/21/2013

The DNR seeks comments on its draft, legislatively mandated, “2012 Iowa Greenhouse Gas Inventory Report.”


Interested parties may review the draft report available on the DNR website at  www.iowadnr.gov/InsideDNR/RegulatoryAir/GreenhouseGasEmissions/GHGInventories.aspx. The DNR seeks information or suggestions that would improve the accuracy of the report. Send corrections or comments to Marnie Stein at Marnie.Stein@dnr.iowa.gov  by 4:30 p.m., Dec. 10, 2013.


When published, this will be the seventh greenhouse gas inventory conducted for Iowa. The inventory is a policy-neutral calculation of Iowa greenhouse gas emissions in 2012, which includes various sectors, such as: agriculture, fossil fuel combustion, industrial processes, natural gas transmission and distribution, transportation and waste. It also includes carbon sinks from land use, land use change and forestry.
