Title: Industrial Gas and Ozone Depleting Substances Project Protocol Scoping Meeting
Location: Washington, DC
The Climate Action Reserve is exploring the prospect of one or more new project protocols related to the destruction or control of high global warming potential (GWP) industrial gases in the United States. To begin the protocol development process, we are hosting a public meeting to discuss possible industrial gas projects and solicit information and feedback from interested stakeholders.
Date: Tuesday, May 19, 2009
Time: 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM EST
Location: Monet Rooms 1 and 2
Address: L’Enfant Plaza Hotel
480 L’Enfant Plaza, SW
Washington, DC 20024
The Climate Action Reserve is dedicated to the development of high quality, standardized protocols for greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction projects. Tentatively, we envision starting our industrial gas protocol development process with the development of protocols for projects that destroy or manage the release of refrigerants (HFCs) and ozone depleting substances (ODSs), and manage N2O emissions at nitric acid plants. At the scoping meeting, we will explore issues around developing accounting methods and eligibility criteria for other possible industrial gas projects as well, including projects that address SF6, HFCs, PFCs, NF3 and additional N2O emission sources. The new protocols will be used to register projects with the Climate Action Reserve.
We encourage all interested stakeholders to join us, including representatives and experts from:
- Industrial refrigerant end-use, reclamation, and recycling industry
- Nitric acid plant industry
- Other high-GWP gas industry experts and representatives
- Local, state and federal agencies involved with industrial pollutants, high GWP gases, and ODS management
- Environmental advocacy organizations
- Project developer organizations
- Project verification bodies
