  • Under a new Clean Air Act rule finalized by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on September 22, 2009, suppliers of fossil fuels or industrial greenhouse gases (GHGs), manufacturers of heavy-duty and off-road vehicles and engines, and other facilities emitting 25,000 metric tons or more of GHGs per year will be required to submit annual reports to the EPA. Affected facilities must begin monitoring greenhouse gas emissions on January 1, 2010 and the first annual report is due to the EPA on March 31, 2011.
