Easy Compliance and Monitoring
The MBS software package Carbon Monitoring and Reporting has been designed as a compliance solution for the European Emission Trading Scheme. The MBS methodology meets all requirements set forth in the EU guidelines for the monitoring and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions under the EU Emission Trading Scheme (revised Monitoring Guidelines).
MBS Carbon Monitoring and Reporting offers the following benefits:
- Easy compliance
- Optimized monitoring concept for exact emissions monitoring
- Improved transparency by quick comparison of planning data with actual data
- Matching of CO2 emissions to individual batch analyses
- Easy integration into portal solutions or trading platforms
In order to fully meet the regulatory requirements, the MBS carbon monitoring is based on recording material flows and the corresponding material quality grades.
Monitoring and reporting
MBS Carbon Monitoring and Reporting builds on material consumption data generally available in the MBS system. For emissions from fuels, MBS calculates batch-related emissions levels based on either the calorific value or the fuel`s actual carbon content. The data can be used to compile reports or to transfer them to other applications via interfaces.
Emission data for any facilities that are not managed in the MBS system can either be imported via interfaces or entered manually. MBS covers all information and data as to fuel supply, scheduling and planning, consumption values of individual generating units as well as long-term planning of fuel supplies. The MBS CO2 module uses load dispatching data to calculate short- and long-term CO2 emission forecasts for varying periods of time.
An optional interface to trading platforms allows companies to exchange information based on actual and planning data. Moreover, the MBS module can be integrated in web-based portals, thereby automatically generating emissions reports that are then made available to users on the Intranet platform. Besides providing reports, the users can retrieve historical reports and obtain information on legislation, rules and best practices in emissions trading.
