Based on data in EPA's Global Anthropogenic Emissions of Non—CO2 Greenhouse Gases report, Peru's 2010 estimated anthropogenic methane emissions ranked 45th in the world and approximately nearly 30 percent of its anthropogenic methane emissions—6.23 MMTCO2E—come from municipal solid waste, natural gas and oil systems, and wastewater. Based on information contained in Peru's National Inventory (compiled in 2000), 60 percent of Peru's methane emissions—12.16 MMTCO2E—come from agriculture (enteric fermentation, 51.4 percent; manure management, 1.66 percent; rice crops, 4.45 percent; burning of savanna cover, 2.07 percent; and burning of agriculture residues, 0.41 percent).
