Bco2 Lfg Ver Project Us

  1. 1. BalanceCO2 - Landfill Gas Emission Reduction Projects in US BalanceCO2 has the opportunity to generate approximately 800,000 Verified Emission Reductions (VERs) (vintage 2000-2008) from collection and flaring of landfill gas (LFG) at three (3) Offset Development Projects in the United States to obtain methane or greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions. BCO2 - 1
  2. 2. Project Goals and Objectives Goals: Development and Registration of Landfill Methane Reduction Objectives: • Review regulatory applicability (Title V permits, New Source Performance Standards (NSPS), State and others), financial incentives for project and determine if GHG emission reductions are real, additional and can be quantified • Applicability & Selection of Registries (CCX, VCS, CCAR, ACR, TCR & others) • Confirmation of Project eligibility  Validation of GHG emission reduction activities and due diligence  Complete Project Questionnaire for Pre-Approval by Registry • Prepare detailed documentation for registration • Pass independent Third party Verification • Apply for registration as Offset Provider / Use Registry Aggregator for Trading • Receipts of contract credits for vintage years registered and management of sale proceeds according to revenue-sharing arrangement BCO2 - 2
  3. 3. Preliminary Findings • Protocols and Registries – Project Eligibility Criteria:  California Climate Action Registry (CCAR): Requires Start after January 2001.  Voluntary Carbon Standard (VCS): Requires Start after January 1, 2001.  Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX): Start after January 1, 1999.  American Carbon Registry (ACR): Start after January 1, 2000 • Project Location and Description  Projects located in Georgia, Connecticut and Louisiana  All three emission reduction projects with start dates between January – June 2000  LFG collection and flaring • Regulatory Applicability  Project Landfills are not subject to NSPS  Combustion (Flaring) of methane (GHG) qualify as emission reduction (Offset) BCO2 - 3
  4. 4. Project Status & Timeline • Due-diligence to determine eligibility as viable Offset projects through review and collection of LFG flow records needed to meet third party verification requirements • Development of GHG Emissions Report in progress – To be prepared in accordance with World Resources Institute’s (WRI) “The GHG Protocol: A Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard,” revised March 2004 Timeline Months Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec Jan Due-Diligence GHG Report Third Party Verification Trading BCO2 - 4
  5. 5. Estimated VERs Total VER’s Y2000-Y2008 Years 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 Potential Aggregated VER's from all 3 projects * 90,000 90,000 90,000 90,000 90,000 90,000 90,000 90,000 90,000 Total 810,000 * Actual VER projections still in progress BCO2 - 5
  6. 6. Future Opportunities • BCO2 plans to undertake development of 2009 and 2010 Vintage Offsets • Potential Offset development opportunities from project upgrades leading to an additional 60,000 aggregated VERs per annum. • Potential REC development opportunities leading to 4.5 MW aggregated from three sites.
