Based on data in EPA's Global Anthropogenic Emissions of Non—CO2 Greenhouse Gases report, in 2005, Canada's estimated anthropogenic methane emissions ranked 12th in the world. Approximately 68 percent of its anthropogenic methane emissions—68.2 MMTCO2E—come from agriculture (manure management), coal mines, municipal solid waste, and natural gas and oil systems.

D’après les données du rapport de l’EPA sur les émissions anthropiques mondiales des gaz d’effet de serre non CO2, en 2005, les émissions anthropiques de méthane du Canada étaient estimées les 12èmes au monde. Environ 68% de ses émissions anthropiques de méthane — 68,2 millions de tonnes d’équivalent CO2 — proviennent de l’agriculture (gestion du fumier), des mines de charbon, des décharges, et des systèmes de gaz naturel et de pétrole.

Methane Sites

The map shows completed and potential methane abatement, recovery, or use projects.

  • Use the check boxes to determine which sites to display on the map.
    • GMI sites are facilities at which methane abatement, recovery, and/or use projects have been identified or completed.
    • Non-GMI sites identify potential or existing projects that are not supported by the GMI.
  • Click a cluster of sites (i.e., numbered circles) to zoom to a region.
  • Click an individual site to view a summary.
  • For more site details click on the highlighted link.

Note: The placement of map icons is approximate, so the zoom-in feature is limited to avoid misrepresentations. Please contact us us if you have more accurate information about the location of a project or site.
