Trainings and Events
Does the calculation of actual values and their use for the GHG balance by the last interface require the approval of the certification body and, if so, which process applies for issuing approval?
Is it possible to use the default value for transports independently of the transport kilometres? Does this value apply to all transports in the supply chain?
Is there a list for the emission factors for fuels depending on their origin?
Which auxiliary production materials have to be included in the calculation and starting at what quantity?
Which method should be used to determine the emissions of a CHP plant in which electricity and steam are produced from substitute fuels as defined in the Ordinance on the List of Waste Materials (Abfallverzeichnis-Verordnung - AVV)? The biogenic portion (waste wood and residues from paper production) is between 15% and 65%.
May the default values be used to calculate the GHG emissions for production of "ethanol from sugar beets"?
Does a GHG emission savings value have to be calculated for waste edible oil?
May the default values for pure palm oil and pure soy oil be used to calculate the GHG emission savings?
If the default value is used to calculate the GHG emission savings does the specific value have to be indicated?
Does a regional list of which regions the biofuels can be delivered to without falling short of the required minimum GHG emission savings always need to be created or only if the partial default value is not used for transport?
The GHG emission saving is recalculated every year with the audit for the previous balance time period. After the audit, which biomass does the newly calculated value apply to: the next harvest or all biomass starting from the point when the new certificate goes into effect?
Can a different allocation method other than the lower heating value be used for carbonated lime?
Where is the system boundary? The final interface (e.g. biofuel facility) or does it include emissions from biofuel transport to end users in the EU?
Is the final interface allowed to calculate/add GHG components or does the complete GHG data have to be passed along the supply chain?
Do auxiliary materials have to be included in "ep"?
What does collecting the eec data "on site" mean?
Who is allowed to calculate the actual values for "eec"? The farmer or the primary distributor?
Are there estimated values that may be used as alternatives to the actual values for the emissions arising from cultivation in accordance with Annex 1 (6) of the Biofuel Sustainability Ordinance (BiokraftNachV)?
May the partial default value for wheat be used for other types of grain?
May the partial default value for wheat be used for wheat that comes from countries outside of the EU?
