The purpose of the Update is to describe progress to date, provide an integrated framework for measures going forward, provide an update on climate science and particularly the role of Short-Lived Climate Pollutants, and identify priorities for research and investment going forward.
Comments on the AB 32 Scoping Plan Update
The Bioenergy Association of California appreciates the opportunity to comment on the AB 32 Scoping Plan Update Draft and the very open, participatory process the Air Board has provided to develop the Draft. There are several important additions to the Draft Update, including the increased focus on Short-Lived Climate Pollutants, the heavy-duty vehicle sector, opportunities for ultra low carbon and carbon-negative transportation fuels, and opportunities to reduce emissions from the solid waste sector. There are also several important omissions that we urge the Board to address before finalizing the Scoping Plan Update. Each of these is described more fully in the attached Comments.
