1 North Carolina Division of Air Quality 1641 Mail Service Center - Raleigh, NC (919) PART 4 How to report to NC – the AERO system 1

2 GREENHOUSE GASES IN THE EMISSION INVENTORY Reporting Greenhouse Gases in AERO 2

3 North Carolina Division of Air Quality 1641 Mail Service Center - Raleigh, NC (919) GHGs GHG emissions vary widely in their reported amounts. Based on voluntarily reported CY2007 emissions (41 facilities), GHG emissions could range from a fraction of a ton to millions of tons. (No PFCs reported) CO 2 : 4.1 tons (1,000Hp generator) to 2,128,403.3 tons (Pulp and Paper Mill) (No EGUs reported). CH 4 : 0.1 ton (dye & print co.) to 2,297 tons (landfill) N 2 O: 0.1 ton (dye & print co.) to tons (university) HFC: 0.1 ton (aircraft rework) to 1,674 tons (fiber mfg) 3

4 North Carolina Division of Air Quality 1641 Mail Service Center - Raleigh, NC (919) GHGs & AERO On Operating Scenario Screen, GHG pollutant table is the first table; above the Criteria Pollutant table. The GHG pollutant table heading will be visible even if no GHG pollutants have been selected. When adding GHGs from the pollutant list to the Operating Scenario, GHGs are listed alphabetically at the top. 4

6 North Carolina Division of Air Quality 1641 Mail Service Center - Raleigh, NC (919) GHGs & AERO, cont. AERO handles GHGs the same as other pollutants as far as adding, deleting, grouping and totaling. However, there is no Control Efficiency column in the GHG table. All GHGs are reported in Short TONS (tons). In the Facility Summary Report (Closeout Page), CO 2 equivalents are calculated and reported below the GHGs as metric tons (tonnes). 6

7 North Carolina Division of Air Quality 1641 Mail Service Center - Raleigh, NC (919) GHGS & AERO, cont. 7

8 North Carolina Division of Air Quality 1641 Mail Service Center - Raleigh, NC (919) Future Enhancements related to GHGs to AERO. Non-permitted sources that only emit GHGs should be saved this year as U-GHG-XXX. In future years, these sources will be denoted as GHG- (removing the U-). There will be a column added to the GHG pollutant table for recording the percentage of GHGs that are anthropogenic. The column will have the header, Percent Anthropogenic and will be located between the Optional Emission Factor Tool and Actual Emissions columns. 8

9 North Carolina Division of Air Quality 1641 Mail Service Center - Raleigh, NC (919) AERO: Adding GHGs to existing source User will login to AERO using facility id and PIN assigned. Click on the On-Line Air Emissions Reporting link. Enter the contact information. Please check address for accuracy. 9

10 North Carolina Division of Air Quality 1641 Mail Service Center - Raleigh, NC (919) AERO: Adding GHGs to existing source, cont. Go to Operating Scenario Summary tab. Click on the OS link for the source. Enter the annual throughput and operating schedule and save. 10

11 North Carolina Division of Air Quality 1641 Mail Service Center - Raleigh, NC (919) AERO: Adding GHGs to existing source, cont. Click the Add Pollutants button. Select GHGs that you wish to add. Shift-left mouse highlights a block of pollutants and Control-left mouse highlights discontinuous pollutants 11

12 North Carolina Division of Air Quality 1641 Mail Service Center - Raleigh, NC (919) AERO: Adding GHGs to existing source, cont. After you have highlighted all the pollutants that you wish to add, click the Add button. 12

13 North Carolina Division of Air Quality 1641 Mail Service Center - Raleigh, NC (919) AERO: Adding GHGs to existing source, cont. Enter the emissions data from your calculations or DAQ spreadsheet. Click the Data Entry Complete button. 13

14 North Carolina Division of Air Quality 1641 Mail Service Center - Raleigh, NC (919) AERO: Adding GHGs to existing source, cont. The Facility Total Report on the Closeout page will total emissions as you add them and calculate the Carbon dioxide equivalence. Once all data has been entered, click Submit to DAQ button to complete the submittal. 14

15 North Carolina Division of Air Quality 1641 Mail Service Center - Raleigh, NC (919) Adding GHG only source Go to Emission Sources Tab. Click on Create New Non-Permitted Source button. 15

16 North Carolina Division of Air Quality 1641 Mail Service Center - Raleigh, NC (919) Adding GHG only source, cont. Enter requested information. System will add U- to the description automatically. Emission Source Type should be External Combustion for Boilers and Stationary Internal Combustion for Generators. Click Save & Continue. 16

17 North Carolina Division of Air Quality 1641 Mail Service Center - Raleigh, NC (919) Adding GHG only source, cont. The system will go back to the Emission Sources page. The added source will appear, listed alphabetically 17

18 North Carolina Division of Air Quality 1641 Mail Service Center - Raleigh, NC (919) Adding GHG only source, cont. On Operating Scenario Summary page, new source will also appear listed alphabetically. To add an operating scenario, click the Add New Operating Scenario link 18
