Emissions Reduction Credits Banking Conference

  • Galvez Building Conference Center 602 N 5th St Baton Rouge, LA, 70802 United States

DEQ will soon be implementing a revision to its emissions reductions credit (ERC) banking rule that expands the eligibility of emission reduction projects to mobile sources (e.g. trucks, marine vessels, trains).  Implementing this new ERC strategy will help improve Baton Rouge air quality and mitigate constraints to economic development of the current “point source only” banking system.

To help the regulated community and general public better understand the ramifications of this banking rule revision, the Baton Rouge Clean Air Coalition (BRCAC) in conjunction with Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is sponsoring a conference to be held January 26, 2017 at the DEQ Conference Center located at DEQ headquarters in the Galvez Building, 602 N 5th Street in downtown Baton Rouge.

Speakers will address the specifics of the new banking rule (AQ365); air quality and economic benefits; ERC project opportunities with roadway, marine, and rail emission sources; a new information resources website; interpollutant trading; Baton Rouge area emissions credits markets; legal issues with the new ERC program; and comparisons with a similar program being developed in Texas.
