The National Carbon Sequestration Database and Geographic Information System (NATCARB) Sources spatial database of stationary sources of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions across the USA and parts of Canada. Sources are classified into nine categories - Agricultural Processing Facilities, Cement and Lime Plants, Electric Generating Plants, Ethanol Production Plants, Fertilizer Production, Industrial Facilities, Petroleum or Natural Gas Transmission, Refineries and Chemical Facilities, and Unclassified. This data layer reflects the best available knowledge regarding stationary CO2 emissions sources in the USA and Canada. Version Log: v1101 - Initial release for Atlas III; v1102 - not released; v1103 - CANADA and WESTCARB data updated. Many duplicates among partnerships removed. Metadata revised.; v1104 - Ethylene and Ethylene Oxide plants reclassified to Refineries/Chemical Plant; v1204 - Initial release for Atlas IV. New data submitted by all regional partnerships. The NATCARB is administered by the US Dept. of Energy (DOE) National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) and contains data provided by the Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnerships (RCSP). The NATCARB Team at KGS compiled the regional datasets into a single, seamless layer.
