arbcombo -- Workshop to Discuss Potential Revisions to the Regulation for Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gas Emissions Posted: 10 Jun 2013 14:53:41
The California Air Resources Board (ARB) staff will hold a workshop on June 26, 2013, at 9 am to discuss potential revisions to ARB’s Regulation for the Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gas Emissions (title 17, California Code of Regulations, sections 95100-95157)(Mandatory Reporting Regulation). The potential revisions would support potential amendments to the California’s Cap-and-Trade Program, and also update several sections of the Mandatory Reporting Regulation. Potential amendments to the Cap-and-Trade Program are described here: http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/capandtrade/2013summary.pdf The workshop is scheduled as follows: DATE: Wednesday June 26, 2013 TIME: 09:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. PLACE: Byron Sher Auditorium at Cal/EPA Headquarters 1001 I Street, Sacramento LIVE WEBCAST: http://www.calepa.ca.gov/Broadcast/ ADDITIONAL MATERIALS: The full workshop notice is available and additional materials will be posted prior to the workshop here: http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/reporting/ghg-rep/revision-2013/revision-2013.htm Some of the topics that will be discussed include: Mandatory Reporting Updates to support Cap-and-Trade: Onshore Petroleum and Natural Gas Production: Update facility definition for onshore petroleum and natural gas production to ensure consistency with the benchmarking and allocation methods in the Cap-and-Trade Program. Lime Production Emissions: Modify emissions estimation method for lime production to account for CO2 reinjected and recovered in production. Fuel Suppliers: Modify reporting requirements for natural gas suppliers to support the broad-scope covered emissions calculation. Sub-ID level reporting: Add in reporting provisions for reporting at the “sub-ID” level. This will ensure emissions associated with a single facility are clear. Mainly for cogeneration facilities. Allowance Revenue Allocation: Add information to support the Investor Owned Utility revenue return assessment in collaboration with the California Public Utilities Commission. Lead Production: Add emissions and product data reporting requirements for lead production in California. This reporting sector was previously excluded from the Mandatory Reporting Regulation. Facility Ownership: Clarify reporting obligations related to changes of ownership of co-located, contiguous facilities. Product Data: Additional product data reporting requirements to support allocation of allowances. Emissions Data Reporting Topics: Petroleum and Natural Gas Systems: Update leaker emission reporting for onshore petroleum and natural gas production in response to stakeholder concerns; Incorporate a crude oil and produced water flash liberation test method developed by ARB staff for reporters to use. Stationary Combustion: Add fuel cell emissions to the reporting threshold to assess the amount of natural gas used in California; Collect additional information on bio-methane producers to increase verification transparency. Inventory Support: Add abbreviated reporter requirement to report fuel use by unit type to ensure reporting compatibility with non-abbreviated reporters; Modify hydrogen production to subtract out transferred CO2 to prevent double-counting. Verification: Modify the product data verification statement to reflect carbon weighted tonne (CWT) reporting for refineries, so verification statements can differentiate between intermediate and primary refinery products; Clarify requirements for non-conformance. Electric Power Entities: Clarifications to address handling of power contracts and reporting of Asset-Controlling Supplier power The workshop agenda and workshop slides will be posted prior to the workshop at http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/reporting/ghg-rep/2013-revision/2013-revision.htm.
