Calculate biogenic oil yields in co-processing

Hello,

Bio-based and fossil based feedstock processing may be carried out simultaneously, such as in the Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) process. Since co-processing of vegetable and animal oils and fossil inputs results in mixed products with the same properties, the differentiation of bio-based and fossil products is hardly possible. In order to calculate the bio-yields, three methods are proposed in the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) scheme (ISCC 203-01 Guidance for the Certification of Co-Processing):
A) Energetic determination;
B ) Determination through the efficiency/losses of a process; or
C) 12C or 14C analyses

Do anyone know if there is a similar guidance or preferred method for BC, or Canada?

Thank you for your help

We should see some guidance from ECCC on this issue soon. There was some work done on a quantification methodology over the summer, pre-election.

My view is that with the FCC, the only route that can provide some certainty is the carbon dating approach. Energy and mass allocation only work if there are no reactions between the biogenic and fossil feedstocks, so they won't provide any precision in the FCC.
