The MBS CO2 Monitoring & Reporting System was designed for use within the framework of the European emissions trading system. The methodology used by MBS meets all the requirements of the reformed Monitoring Regulation of the EU Commission 2018/2066, according to Annex 2 of the TEHG and the Emissions Trading Regulation (EHV).
In order to fully meet the regulatory requirements, the MBS carbon monitoring is based on recording material flows and the corresponding material quality grades.
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.
