ACR announces open public comment period for two methodologies
December 5, 2017 by Ronjoy Bezbarua
(Source: ACR) The American Carbon Registry (ACR), a nonprofit enterprise of Winrock International, is soliciting public comments on two methodologies:
- Updates to the Methodology for the Transition to Advanced Formulation Blowing Agents in Foam Manufacturing and Use. Methodology V2.0 proposes a new eligible foam application, Retail Food Refrigeration, a broad category that has been shown to have very low adoption rates for low GWP foam blowing agents. Additional changes are proposed to monitoring requirements as well as updated penetration rates for all eligible foam applications.
- A new Methodology for the Quantification, Monitoring, Reporting and Verification of Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reductions from Re-refining Used Lubricating Oils. Lubricating oils are used to minimize friction and wear between mechanical parts in contact with each other and are essential to a wide variety of automotive, industrial, and marine applications. The purpose of the Methodology is to quantify greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions associated with the collection and re-refining of used lubricating oils, which avoids GHG emissions associated with the combustion and improper disposal of used oil at end of life.
