ARB will host a Cap-and-Trade Program technical working group meeting on a proposed Border Carbon Adjustment for the cement sector on Wednesday, April 9, 2014, at Cal/EPA headquarters in Sacramento. TOPIC: Technical Working Group Meeting on a Border Carbon Adjustment for the Cement Sector DATE: Wednesday, April 9, 2014 TIME: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm (end time approximate) LOCATION: Conference Room 550, 5th Floor, Cal/EPA HQ Building, 1001 “I” Street, Sacramento On February 5, 2014, ARB staff conducted a public workshop to discuss the potential inclusion of cement importers in the California Cap-and-Trade Program starting at the beginning of the second compliance period (January 1, 2015) using a border carbon adjustment. A border carbon adjustment is a mechanism that would create a compliance obligation for importers similar to the obligation faced by the same industry within California. The workshop kicked off the public process to consider regulatory amendments that would include cement importers as an additional covered sector subject to the California Cap-and-Trade Regulation. In the workshop, staff discussed four program design options and various design elements such as scope, applicability, and program stringency. The purpose of the April 9 technical working group meeting is to discuss and solicit feedback on and information pertinent to a staff proposal for program design, scope, and applicability of this proposed design option, and default and facility- or region-specific emission factors. Technical working group membership is open to any interested stakeholders. Please contact Ms. Mihoyo Fuji, Lead Staff (firstname.lastname@example.org, (916) 324-0916), or Ms. Mary Jane Coombs, Manager (email@example.com, (916) 322-7554) to R.S.V.P. for the technical working group meeting. This meeting will not be webcast. Subsequent technical working group meetings on the cement BCA will not be advertised via listserv, so please contact Ms. Fuji or Ms. Coombs if you wish to participate in the technical working group but cannot be present for the April 9 meeting. Future technical working group meetings will be announced via direct email to technical working group members. California is in a drought emergency.
