Project Details

Title: 2015 City of Medicine Hat Engine Fuel Management and Vent Gas Capture Project Project Identifier: 3434-3994

Project Description

GHG emission reduction result from combustion control upgrades on two reciprocating internal combustion engines fueled with methane. Site data will be reported in an annual assertion to generate carbon offset credits in accordance with the Quantification Protocol for Engine Fuel Management and Vent Gas Capture Projects (V 1.0 October, 2009).
This project achieves highest possible accuracy by testing for unburned fuel (methane) and NOx in the engine exhaust using Protocol Flexibility #5. Site measured emission factors determined by testing methane and NOx are conducted under strict adherence to US EPA testing methodologies. Using site-tested emission factors will produce greater accuracy because it captures the concentration change in the unburned hydrocarbons within the exhaust stream; a factor very likely affected by emission control technology upgrades.
This project will also quantify reductions from the addition of technology which filters CH4 vented from the engine crankcase in the baseline condition and used by the engine as recycled fuel in the project condition.
Projects fulfill all criteria listed in the Protocol Applicability Section and those in Section 7 of the Specified Gas Emitters Regulation.
