Based on data in EPA's Global Anthropogenic Emissions of Non—CO2 Greenhouse Gases report, in 2005, the Republic of Korea's estimated anthropogenic methane emissions ranked 37th in the world. Approximately 48 percent of its anthropogenic methane emissions—16.0 MMTCO2E—come from agriculture (manure management), coal mines, municipal solid waste, and natural gas and oil systems.
