arbcombo -- Cap-and-Trade Program Technical Working Group Meeting on Border Carbon Adjustment for the Cement Sector

Posted: 01 Apr 2014 13:40:53
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 (mfuji@arb.ca.gov,
(916) 324-0916), or Ms. Mary Jane Coombs, Manager
(mcoombs@arb.ca.gov, (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.
