GHG Technology StudyWednesday, March 26th, 2008

The District conducted a region-wide study to identify and evaluate potential greenhouse gas emission control options for application at stationary sources in the Bay Area region in California. The study identified the industries and source categories which most significantly contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and potential mitigation options for controlling those emissions.  The study qualitatively evaluated the effectiveness, costs, and impacts of each of the most promising options.  The District is now developing a follow-up report, Opportunities for Further Greenhouse Gas Reductions for the BAAQMD Stationary Sources, Phase II: Landfills; Industrial, Institutional and Commercial Boilers, Steam Generators and Process Heaters, scheduled for publication in 2008.
