PP 32/10Guidelines for MRG: EIGA Opinion on CO2 Transfer

"EIGA has developed an industry consensus on the topic of Transferred CO2 within the review of the EU Guidelines for Monitoring and Reporting of Greenhouse Gases (reference Section 5.7 of the EU Commission decision 2007/589/EC of 18 July 2007).

EIGA believes that the MRG guidelines should specifically prohibit subtraction of emissions related to the transfer of CO2 from the ETS to the non ETS domain for short term storage and later use and should ensure that downstream CO2 is accounted as emitted in the production process.

Full details of the position and the background to it are covered in this Position Paper."
