US - US Poultry & Egg Association has released a poultry carbon footprint estimation toolkit, which is available to all members of USPoultry.

The toolkit was created to assist facilities in evaluating their carbon footprint and was developed in response to the Environmental Protection Agency's greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting requirements and potential GHG regulatory requirements associated with the Greenhouse Gases Tailoring Rule.

The toolkit allows facilities to calculate the emission of GHGs generated by stationary sources (i.e. boilers and generators) by inputting the volume of various fuels used at the facility into a spreadsheet that has been populated with the necessary arithmetic equations. Additionally, the toolkit provides facilities with anaerobic processes operated at wastewater treatment plants with the ability to calculate and log those GHG emissions to evaluate their need to report as required by the Greenhouse Gas Reporting Rule.

For more information on the carbon footprint estimation toolkit or to order a toolkit, contact Paul Bredwell or Marjorie Maul (call: (770) 493-9401 or e-mail: [email protected]).
