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: 

All interested stakeholders are invited to attend.  A live
webcast of the meeting will be available at:

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.  

More information on the Cap-and Trade Program may be found on the
Program website:
