arbcombo -- High Global Warming Potential GHGs Stakeholder Kickoff Meeting

Posted: 13 Feb 2008 08:58:25
The California Air Resources Board (ARB) staff invites you to
participate in the first public workshop and stakeholder kickoff
meeting to discuss concepts for mitigating emissions from
high-Global Warming Potential (GWP) greenhouse gases from
stationary sources, to take place February 15, 2008.  (This
invitation may be a reminder for some of you who were on our
list serve a month ago, but please note some of the web
addresses provided to find more information have recently been

The California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (AB 32)
creates a comprehensive, multi-year program to reduce greenhouse
gas (GHG) emissions in California, with the overall goal of
restoring emissions to 1990 levels by the year 2020. In October
2007, ARB approved 44 early action measures to reduce GHG
emissions from various sectors, including six early action
measures from the stationary source high-GWP sector, the focus
of this meeting.

The six early action measures that will be discussed are:

    * Insulating Foam Recovery/Destruction Program
    * Specifications for Commercial Refrigeration
    * High-GWP Refrigerant Tracking, Reporting, and Recovery
    * Residential Refrigeration
    * Sulfur Hexafluoride Reductions from the Non-Electric
    * Alternative Suppressants in Fire Protection Systems

For each of the above early action measures, staff will provide
an overview of the source category, discuss potential concepts
for achieving emission reductions, as well as the anticipated
timelines for bringing a full proposal to the Board for
consideration. A key objective of the meeting is to ensure that
all interested stakeholders have an opportunity to participate
throughout the process beginning with a discussion of potential
approaches for mitigation, identify additional stakeholders that
should be contacted, as well as identify additional data sources
that should be considered. The background information at the end
of this message provides a brief description of the concepts that
will be discussed at the workshop.
