The California Air Resources Board (ARB) recently announced approval of a new compliance offset protocol for Mine Methane Capture (MMC), which will go into effect for listing of compliance offset projects starting on July 1, 2014.
The ARB MMC offset protocol provides methods to quantify greenhouse gas emission reductions associated with the capture and destruction of methane that would otherwise be vented into the atmosphere as a result of mining operations at active underground and surface coal and trona mines and abandoned underground coal mines in the U.S. Projects listed and verified under ARB approved Early Action Quantification Methodologies are also eligible to generate compliance offset credits.
Please join American Carbon Registry and guest speakers from ARB, Ruby Canyon Engineering and Verdeo Sindicatum to learn about eligible mine methane capture projects and activities, the steps to list and verify projects under the compliance protocol and early action protocols, and the process to issue Registry Offset Credits and Early Action Offset Credits on ACR and convert these credits to ARB compliance offsets, which can be used by capped entities to help meet their emissions reduction obligation.
