DNR Requests Comments on Draft Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory
Posted: 12/01/2011

The DNR has posted a draft of its legislatively mandated “2010 Iowa Greenhouse Gas Inventory Report” for public review at www.iowadnr.gov/InsideDNR/RegulatoryAir/GreenhouseGasEmissions/GHGInventories.aspx.

The DNR seeks information or suggestions that could improve the accuracy of the report. Interested parties are urged to review the draft report and submit any corrections or comments to Marnie Stein at Marnie.Stein@dnr.iowa.gov  by 4:30 p.m., Dec. 16, 2011.

When published, this will be the fifth greenhouse gas inventory conducted for Iowa.

The inventory is a policy-neutral calculation of Iowa greenhouse gas emissions in 2010, 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.
