This presentation will focus the BC Carbon Calculator for Trenchless Works, a tool that determines the GHG emission reduction resulting from using trenchless construction methods.

Over this past year, cities throughout BC have been introduced to the BC Carbon Calculator. It is a program that determines the carbon/greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction afforded when a trenchless construction method is used to install and/or rehab an underground utility. While it is sustainability or climate action staff in a local government that initially may use the BC Carbon Calculator, it is hoped that engineering staff may also use the program when considering the use of a trenchless method for their utility installation or rehabilitation projects.

The BC Carbon Calculator is approved for use by the province of BC, and is posted as a “tool kit”. Project criteria are provided by engineering or capital works departments as inputs to the program. The resulting tonnage as quantified by the program can then be documented as carbon emission reduction.

The BC Carbon Calculator is made in BC, for use in BC. Current users of the program are the City of Prince George, City of Victoria, and Metro Vancouver.
