Based on data in EPA's Global Anthropogenic Emissions of Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gases report, in 2005, Brazil's estimated anthropogenic methane emissions ranked 4th in the world. While cattle are the country's largest source of methane emissions, approximately 7 percent of its anthropogenic methane emissions—28.91 MMTCO2E—come from agriculture (manure management), municipal solid waste, and natural gas and oil systems.

Segundo o relatório da EPA sobre as emissões antropogênicas de gases - exceto CO2 - responsáveis pelo efeito estufa, em 2005 o Brasil foi o quarto país do mundo em emissões estimadas de metano antropogênico. Embora o gado seja a maior fonte de emissões de metano do país, aproximadamente 7% das emissões antropogênicas desse gás, 28,91 MMTCO2E (toneladas métricas equivalentes de dióxido de carbono) provêm da agricultura (manejo de esterco), aterros e sistemas de petróleo e gás natural.
