[6]           Schedule 6, after Part 44
insert
Part 45        Production of coke oven coke
Division 1       Production of coke oven coke
731         Production of coke oven coke
                The production of coke oven coke is the physical and chemical transformation (at a temperature higher than 900 °C) of coal into coke oven coke that:
                (a)    has a coke strength after reaction (CSR) value of more than 50% for at least 80% of the coke oven coke produced; and
               (b)    has a coke reactivity index (CRI) value of less than 40% for at least 80% of the coke oven coke produced.
Division 2       Classification of activity
732         Classification of activity
                The production of coke oven coke is a highly emissions‑intensive activity.
Division 3       Electricity baseline for calculating partial exemption
733         Electricity baseline for product
                The electricity baseline for calculating the amount of a liable entity’s partial exemption in respect of the production of coke oven coke is 0.0109 MWh per tonne of coke oven coke on a dry weight basis that:
                (a)    has a coke strength after reaction (CSR) value of more than 50% for at least 80% of the coke oven coke produced; and
               (b)    has a coke reactivity index (CRI) value of less than 40% for at least 80% of the coke oven coke produced; and
                (c)    is not a relevant product for the emissions-intensive trade‑exposed activity of integrated iron and steel manufacturing; and
               (d)    is produced by carrying on the emissions-intensive trade‑exposed activity; and
                (e)    is of saleable quality.
Note   Saleable quality is defined in regulation 22C.
Part 46        Production of hydrogen peroxide
Division 1       Production of hydrogen peroxide
734         Production of hydrogen peroxide
                The production of hydrogen peroxide is the chemical transformation of hydrogen (H) feedstocks and oxygen (O) feedstocks:
                (a)    to produce crude aqueous hydrogen peroxide solution that has a concentration of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2(aq)) of at least 39% with respect to mass; and
               (b)    to later produce saleable aqueous hydrogen peroxide solution that has a concentration of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2(aq)) of at least 34% with respect to mass.
Division 2       Classification of activity
735         Classification of activity
                The production of hydrogen peroxide is a moderately emissions‑intensive activity.
Division 3       Electricity baseline for calculating partial exemption
736         Electricity baseline for product
                The electricity baseline for calculating the amount of a liable entity’s partial exemption in respect of the production of hydrogen peroxide is 0.858 MWh per tonne of 100% equivalent hydrogen peroxide in saleable aqueous hydrogen peroxide solution that:
                (a)    has a concentration of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2(aq)) of at least 34% with respect to mass; and
               (b)    is produced by carrying on the emissions-intensive trade‑exposed activity; and
                (c)    is of saleable quality.
Note   Saleable quality is defined in regulation 22C.
