arbcombo -- Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) Certified Pathways Release Posted: 24 Mar 2017 09:56:38
Staff has released a set of carbon intensity (CI) pathways for fuels certified under the readopted LCFS regulation using the CA-GREET 2.0 model. A total of 18 pathways have been certified in March 2017. All pathways certified in this release may be used for credit reporting purposes beginning with reports for Q1, 2017. All certified CIs are available in one centralized location at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/fuels/lcfs/fuelpathways/pathwaytable.htm. The list of certified CIs at the link above includes all CIs certified using CA-GREET 2.0. To facilitate reporting of fossil natural gas pathways, staff has certified an ARB pathway for North American Natural Gas to Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). This pathway uses a compression efficiency of 97 percent (average station compression efficiency for CNG pathways certified between 2016 and Q1, 2017). Reporting parties for this fuel may use a Fuel Pathway Code of CNGF205 with a CI of 79.46 g/MJ effective Q1, 2017. Background on the LCFS The Low Carbon Fuel Standard is a regulation to reduce the carbon intensity of fuels sold in California ten percent by 2020. The LCFS is one of the measures adopted by the California Air Resources Board, pursuant to Health and Safety Code Sections 38500-38599 (AB 32) to reduce greenhouse gases in California. It is designed to help clean the air, protect the environment, and drive the development of clean, low-carbon fuels to improve California's energy security and energy independence.
