DNR requests comments on draft greenhouse gas report
The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is seeking 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.
When published, the report 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.
