AB32 Mandatory Reporting Rule

  • Covered Entities
  • Cement plants;
  • Petroleum refineries that emit > 25,000 metric tonnes of CO2 in anycalendar year after 2007
  • Hydrogen plants that emit > 25,000 metric tonnes of CO2 in anycalendar year after 2007
  • Electric generating facilities that individually have a nameplategenerating capacity > 1 megawatt (MW) that emit > 2,500 metrictonnes of CO2 in any calendar year after 2007 from electricitygenerating activities
  • Retail providers;
  • Marketers;
  • Cogeneration facilities that individually have a nameplate generatingcapacity > 1 MW that emit > 2,500 metric tonnes of CO2 in anycalendar year after 2007
  • Other facilities that emit > 25,000 metric tonnes of CO2 fromstationary combustion sources in any calendar year after 2007.

AB32 Mandatory Reporting Rule

  • Reporting Requirements
  • Stationary sources
    • CO2, N2O, and CH4 emissions from stationary combustion, process, and fugitivesources.
    • CO2 from combustion of biomass-derived fuels is reported separately
  • Mobile sources
    • Optional reporting of CO2, N2O, and CH4 emissions from mobile combustion.
  • Indirect sources
    • Consumption of purchased or acquired electricity, heat, cooling or steam whenrequired.
  • De minimis sources
    • May elect to designate one or more sources that collectively generate no more than3% of the facility’s total CO2e emissions but in no case more than 20,000 metrictonnes CO2e
  • Fuel analytical data capture
    • Must make every effort to obtain fuel analytical data capture of 100% for eachreport year when required to estimate emissions.
  • CO2 CEMSs vs. fuel based calculations
    • Must make a choice and stick with one method of reporting. If CEMS are installed,should be before January 1, 2011
