Reduction of Carbon Dioxide Emissions from Coal-fired Generation of Electricity Regulations

Version of section 22 from 2015-07-01 to 2018-11-29:


Marginal note:Determination

 If paragraph 20(1)(b) applies, the quantity of CO2 emissions referred to in subsection 20(1) is to be determined by the following formula:

The formula for determining the quantity of CO2 emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels in a unit for a calendar year using a fuel-based method is Es minus Eccs plus the sum of Ei for each fossil fuel “i” combusted in the unit during the calendar year.

where

Ei
is the quantity of CO2 emissions attributable to the combustion of fossil fuel of type “i” in the unit during the calendar year, expressed in tonnes, determined for that fuel type in accordance with section 23 or 24;
i
is the ith type of fossil fuel combusted in the unit during the calendar year, with “i” going from the number 1 to n, where n is the number of types of fossil fuel so combusted;
Es
is Es determined in accordance with the formula set out in subparagraph 21(2)(d)(ii); and
Eccs
is the quantity of CO2 in those emissions, expressed in tonnes, from the combustion of fuel in the unit, during the calendar year, that are captured in accordance with the laws of Canada or a province that regulate that capture and that are transported and stored in accordance with the laws of Canada or a province, or of the United States or one of its states, that regulate that transportation or storage, as the case may be, that quantity being determined using a direct measure of the flow of, and the concentration of CO2 in, those emissions.
