GHG Quantification and Verification Opportunities in BC and Canada: Part 4

Video Length: 00:59:50

Date Recorded: June/08/2020

This session is Part 4 of the GHG Quantification and Verification Opportunities in BC and Canada webinar series. The CleanBC Industry Fund (CIF) portion of this session will cover a brief overview of the 2020 CleanBC Industry Fund Request for Proposals (timelines, funding, eligibility) and validation/verification requirements for projects considered under the fund. It will also cover the methodology guidance given for the quantification of project emissions.

The CleanBC Industrial Incentive Program (CIIP) portion will cover first an overview of the CleanBC Industrial Incentive Program and discuss how incentives will be provided both for the current “transition +” year and for future years using benchmarks. The portion goes on to outline how reporting for the CIIP program is closely coordinated with the reporting that is required under the Greenhouse Gas Industrial Reporting and Control Act (GGIRCA) and the Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reporting Regulation and briefly discuss requirements under those pieces of legislation. It discusses the prescribed methodologies for quantifying emissions (WCI). It ends by discussing the differences in reporting and quantification under the GGIRCA reporting rules and those for the CIIP program.

Shelby Hart, P.Eng.

Technical Lead for the CleanBC Industry Fund at the British Columbia Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy

Shelby Hart is a professional engineer with a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Dalhousie University and a certified Catalyst Coach through the Brainsparker Academy in the U.K.

She gained experience in industrial operation and greenhouse gas reduction through operations and design engineering positions with major Canadian/global oil and gas and mining companies. Her expertise in plant operations and process design (including specialized slurry transport pipeline systems) lead to her involvement with several innovative technology development projects. Each of these projects evaluated alternative processing approaches to reduce waste by-products and substantially reduce GHG emissions. Highlights include projects to eliminate water use from SAGD operations, and elimination of fluid tailings creation from mine ore processing.
