ARB Research Seminar: The Feasibility of Renewable Natural Gas as a Large-Scale, Low Carbon Substitute

Friday, December 2, 2016 10:00 a.m., PST (WEBCAST) / 1:00 p.m. EST
Sierra Hearing Room, 2nd Floor, Cal/EPA Building
1001 I Street, Sacramento, California

California will need high volumes of alternative low carbon fuels to be able to meet its climate change goals. In order to support these goals, this study investigated the technological and commercial feasibility of producing large quantities of renewable
natural gas fuels for use in California. The study’s results indicate that there are substantial sources of RNG in California that are commercially competitive with existing fossil fuel-based
transportation fuels because carbon externalities are taken into consideration in the California market through existing programs such as the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) and the U.S. Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS).

California ARB Workshop: Volkswagen Consent Decree ZEV Investment Commitment

Friday, December 2, 2016 / 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific

California Air Resources Board (ARB) invites you to participate in a public workshop on Friday, December 2, 2016, to provide suggestions for Volkswagen’s (VW) $800 million 10-year zero emission vehicle (ZEV) Investment Commitment in California.

The ZEV Investment Commitment is a component of California’s partial settlement with VW resulting from VW’s use of illegal defeat devices in 2.0 liter (2.0L) diesel cars that were sold into the State from model years 2009 to 2015. During the workshop, staff will discuss: (1) four areas of qualified investments: ZEV infrastructure, public awareness, increasing ZEV access, and green city projects; (2) ARB’s draft guiding principles and recommended priorities for the first ZEV Investment Plan; and (3) the process and timeline associated with development, review, and approval of the first investment plan. After that discussion, members of the public will be invited to provide comments related to the ZEV Investment. These comments will inform ARB’s development of a guidance document communicating California’s priorities and guiding principles for ZEV investments to VW to aid them in drafting their ZEV Investment Plan.

Location: Cal/EPA Headquarters Coastal Hearing Room, 2nd Floor 1001 I Street Sacramento, California 95814

Webinar - Regs & Bacon: Status & Opportunity in North Carolina's RPS Swine Waste Mandate

Thursday, October 6, 3:00pm Eastern / 12:00pm Pacific

For the past two decades, hog producers in North Carolina have come under increased regulation through an ongoing effort to mitigate the environmental impact of swine production. This includes a permanent moratorium on the expansion of existing hog farms and the development of new ones, with a provision that new permits can be issued only to farms that meet five specific environmental performance standards. At the same time, the state adopted a renewable portfolio standard (RPS) that includes a specific carve-out for swine-based electricity. Coupled together, the environmental quality standards and renewable energy goals make a strong case to site renewable energy projects at hog farms. This webinar will include an overview of the state’s pork industry and bioenergy project activity, an overview of RPS requirements and progress, and a case study of an operating swine waste project benefitting from the program. Sponsored by Biomass Magazine.

Webinar presented by Argus: Skyrocketing RINs prices are driving up biofuels production and imports, but will it be enough to achieve compliance? How can refiners respond in conflicting market information that shows us short on biofuels credits for the national RFS program but suddenly long on biofuels for the California LCFS? The RINs price has distorted the crack spread, influenced the differential of jet to diesel, and reshaped export markets…what will happen next? Join Argus as we discuss:

  • Forecasts on RINs and LCFS prices
  • RIN “banks” and potential shortfalls
  • Import/export activity
  • Strategies for compliance
