Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program

Miscellaneous Combustion

Other Combustion icon.Miscellaneous combustion comprises facilities that reported GHG emissions from stationary fuel combustion sources only and that are not part of any other sector.  This category includes food processing, ethanol production, manufacturing operations, universities, military installations, and any combustion sources not included elsewhere, such as mining operations and hospitals.
