You must configure waste fraction activities within the system to a specific emission factor source so that the system can upload data to the activities.

To configure waste fraction activities, you must first complete the following tasks:

  1. Create the waste fraction. For further information, go to Creating custom waste fractions.
  2. Map an associated emission factor to the waste fraction and assign a disposal method. For further information, go to Mapping emission factors to waste fractions.
