Board Meeting, 55837 [2012-22359]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 176 / Tuesday, September 11, 2012 / Notices recommendations varied based on the type of CHP configuration. WCI in its final 2008 recommendation 9 did not advance one allocation method over another, stating ‘‘adequate quantification methods will be established for emissions sources prior to including them in the program’’. The British Standards Institute (BSI)’s Publicly Available Specification (PAS) 2050 10 recommends using an approach based on the unit of useful energy delivered. The specification recommends ‘‘the allocation shall be carried out in proportion to the amount of useful energy delivered in each form, multiplied by the intensity of GHG emissions associated with each unit of useful energy delivered as heat and electricity.’’ This methodology acknowledges that each CHP system may have a different ratio of outputs of thermal and electrical energy. srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Application of the Work Potential Allocation Methodology to the Dakota Plant Under the RFS2 program, EPA is considering use of the work potential method for the configuration outlined in the Dakota petition because the primary purpose of the steam generated at Spiritwood power plant before extraction is to produce power. This method allocates the emissions to extracted steam based on the amount of power displaced (i.e., the electricity not generated). A Memorandum to the Docket explains in more detail how the work potential methodology would be applied to the plant configuration proposed for the Dakota plant, resulting in a specific GHG emission factor per mmbtu of steam energy. This emissions factor would be used in analyzing the total GHG emissions per mmbtu of ethanol produced by the Dakota facility, as part of determining whether the ethanol produced by the facility would qualify under the lifecycle GHG thresholds established in the RFS program. For the configuration outlined in the Dakota petition, EPA’s analysis finds that the process steam has an emission factor of 53,175 grams CO2-eq/ mmbtu steam. 9 The WCI Partner jurisdictions recognize the importance of combined heat and power (cogeneration) in the program scope and are continuing to evaluate its implications for the program design.

VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:10 Sep 10, 2012 Jkt 226001 55837 EPA invites comments on the proposed application of the work potential methodology to determine emissions associated with imported steam to the Dakota plant in the context of lifecycle emissions accounting. Furthermore, EPA invites comment on applying the work potential approach to other plants with similar CHP configurations under the RFS program. EPA also requests information on the appropriateness of applying alternative allocation approaches outlined in this notice to the Dakota plant, as well as any other approaches that could also be used to allocate emissions to steam for this specific CHP configuration under the RFS program.
