On January 22, 2020, the California Air
Resources Board (CARB) accredited Cameron-Cole, LLC to perform
verifications under the Low Carbon Fuel Standard Regulation (LCFS).
We are among the first group of verifications bodies to receive this
Cameron-Cole is approved to conduct
verification services for the following report types:
Fuel Pathway Applications and Fuel Pathway
Quarterly Fuel Transactions Reports for
Petroleum-Based Fuel Reports: Quarterly
Fuels Transactions Reports submitted by producers and importers
of gasoline or diesel, Crude Oil Quarterly and Annual Volumes
Reports, and Project Reports as listed in section 95500(e)
Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS)
The LCFS is designed to decrease the carbon
intensity of California's transportation fuel pool and provide an
increasing range of low-carbon and renewable alternatives, which
reduce petroleum dependency and achieve air quality benefits. The
LCFS relies on accurate data monitoring, reporting, and verification
to support implementation and tracking of effectiveness. In 2018,
CARB approved amendments to add third-party verification
requirements to the LCFS to ensure data completeness, accuracy, and
conformance with the regulation—consistent with the verification
programs under California’s Cap-and-Trade Program and international
best practices. For more information, contact Chris Lawless at
In Washington, D.C., today the U.S.
EPA issued a formal 60-day comment period on advanced
notice of proposed rulemaking proposing to add PFAS to
the TRI list of chemicals for annual reporting.
The goal is to provide useful information to
stakeholders and to provide EPA with data on the release
and waste management of PFAS.
EPA is considering adding PFAS to its list of
chemicals of special concern and establishing lower
volumetric reporting thresholds.
Currently, the volumetric thresholds requiring
TRI reporting are 25,000 pounds for manufacturing or
processing facilities and 10,000 pounds for facilities
otherwise using a chemical on the TRI list.
However, EPA has established much lower
thresholds for chemicals that are considered persistent,
bioaccumulative, and toxic (PBT).
These thresholds are 100 pounds for PBT chemicals
and 10 pounds for highly PBT chemicals.
The EPA is taking public comment on:
whether the reporting of PFAS
should occur for individual compounds or as a group;
which of the approximately 600
PFAS individual compounds should be listed and
what threshold should be set to
capture most of the releases from facilities that
must report; and
any additional toxicity
information that would support a listing under TRI.
