Carbon offset emission factors handbook. Version 2.0

Description

Contains a listing of common emission factors used in the Alberta emission offset system as well as common quantification methodologies. Common emission factors, provided in Section 1, are intended as inputs to formulae provided in approved quantification protocols. Common quantification methods, provided in Section 2, are commonly used formulae for quantification of emission offsets. Please note that emission factors and quantification methodologies are subject to periodic updates; emission offset project developers must use the most current version of the Handbook when initiating an emission offset project. If the Handbook is updated during the offset crediting period or extension period of an emission offset project, the offset project developer should refer to the Standard for Greenhouse Gas Emission Offset Project Developers for guidance.
