arbcombo -- Save the Date: August 13 Cap-and-Trade Workshop on Refineries and Related Industries Posted: 18 Jul 2013 12:53:49
Please save August 13, 2013 for a public workshop to discuss potential changes to the California Cap on Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Market-Based Compliance Mechanism relating to allocation benchmarks and approaches to refineries, hydrogen and coke calcining. TOPIC: Refineries and Related Industries Workshop DATE: Tuesday, August 13, 2013 TIME: 1 pm to 4 pm LOCATION: Byron Sher Auditorium, 2nd Floor, Cal/EPA HQ Building, 1001 “I” Street, Sacramento This workshop will focus on allowance allocation to refineries under the Cap-and-Trade Program during the second and third compliance periods. Under current regulation, the carbon dioxide-weighted tonne, as defined in Europe, will form the basis of these allocations. The ARB is considering changing away from the use of the carbon dioxide-weighted tonne. Potential changes to allocations for two related activities, hydrogen production and calcining coke, will also be discussed. This workshop will include participation by Solomon Associates and Ecofys to provide their industry and emissions-related expertise. The agenda for the workshop will be available on ARB’s Cap-and-Trade Workshops and Meetings webpage: http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/capandtrade/meetings/meetings.htm All interested stakeholders are invited to attend. A live webcast of the meeting will be available at: http://www.calepa.ca.gov/broadcast/?BDO=1 Background The California Cap-and-Trade Regulation (Regulation) was formally adopted by the Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) in 2011. In 2012, the Board adopted a limited set of amendments focused on implementation of the Regulation. In response to Board direction and further discussions with stakeholders, staff began a public process this spring to propose additional amendments for Board consideration in fall 2013. Refinery stakeholders have requested reconsideration of the carbon dioxide-weighted tonne allocation method. This workshop will cover refinery and related product considerations for potential new amendments.
