What Industries Do They Apply To?

These rules apply to 5 industries within California. Government agencies, if they operate the below facilities, also fall under these regulations:

  1. Cement plants
  2. Petroleum refineries in California that emit greater than or equal to 25,000 metric tonnes of CO2 in after 2007
  3. Hydrogen Plants emitting greater than or equal to 25,000 metric tonnes of CO2 after 2007
  4. Operators of Electricity generating facilities in California that
    1. have a nameplate generating capacity equal to or greater than 1 MW
    2. emit greater than or equal to 2,500 metric tonnes of CO2 after 2007 from electricity generating activities
      • Hybrid generating facilities are also included in this total
      • Electricity retail providers and marketers, including those outside the state, must report if they provide electricity to retail end users in California. There are no capacity requirements or emission thresholds for retail providers and marketers
      • “emissions” includes fossil fuels and biomass derived fuels, along with process emissions, if any
  5. Cogeneration facilities must report along the same requirements as Electricity generating facilities, including requirements for marketers and out of state retail providers
    • include any fossil fuels and biomass derived fuels, and any CO2 from acid gas scrubbers
    • do not include pass-through CO2 emissions associated with biogas generation and combustion

The “catch-all” provision: Operators of any other facility in California emitting greater than or equal to 25,000 metric tonnes per year of CO2 from stationary combustion sources in California after 2007
