Comments Due by December 18, 2009
The Climate Action Reserve (CAR) has released a Destruction of Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) Project Protocol and an Imported Ozone Depleting Substances Project Protocol for public comments.
The draft U.S. Ozone Depleting Substances Project Protocol and Imported Ozone Depleting Substances Project Protocol are now available for public review and comment. The U.S. and Imported ODS protocols provide methodologies for destroying ODS material sourced from the U.S. and Article 5 countries, respectively. Comments from the public are due no later than 5:00 PM PST on December 18, 2009.
Also a public workshop will be held on December 7, 2009, in Washington, D.C. with conference call-in capability, to solicit stakeholder feedback on both protocols. Information on the public workshop and copies of the protocols are available on the Reserve website.
RemTec’s Tim Kearney was a member of the Working Group and assisted in the development of the two Protocols. He is available to assist those needing more information or interpretation of the Protocols. RemTec provides destruction of ODS services using its Argon Plasma Arc technology and will be following all procedures to qualify ODS destruction for CAR protocols. Depending on market conditions, these offset credits could cover all the costs of destruction and provide additional incentives to convert to CFC alternatives.
