Chile Chilian flag

Based on data in EPA's Global Anthropogenic Emissions of Non—CO2 Greenhouse Gases report, in 2005, Chile's estimated anthropogenic methane emissions ranked 50th in the world. While enteric fermentation accounts for the country's largest source of methane emissions, approximately 25 percent of its anthropogenic methane emissions—3.66 MMTCO2E—come from agriculture (manure management), coal mines, municipal solid waste, and natural gas and oil systems.

De acuerdo con datos provenientes del informe Global Anthropogenic Emissions of Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gases de la EPA, se calcula que en el 2005 la tasa de emisiones antropogénicas de metano de Chile lo colocaron en quincuagésimo lugar mundial. Aunque la fermentación entérica es la fuente de emisiones de metano más grande del país, aproximadamente el 25 por ciento de sus emisiones de metano antropogénico —3,66 MMTCO2E—provienen de la agricultura (administración de estiércol), minas de carbón, vertederos y sistemas de gas natural y petróleo.

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.
