Industry’s coal and gas

Industries burn diesel fuel, gasoline, natural gas or coal to power its ovens or machines not connected to the electrical grid.

The oil and coal industries themselves burn hydrocarbons for digging coal mines or oil wells all the way to sorting coal, refining petroleum, leaking methane gas, and finally distributing coal or gas.

Notes about EPA’s categories referred in this blog:
-Fuels burned for hydrocarbon distribution by trucks or train is included in this category, not in the transport category.
-Industry’s consumption of electricity from power plants is not included in this “industry” category but in the “power plant” category.
