Appendix 1 (to article 8 paragraph 3) method for the calculation of the greenhouse gas reduction potential based on actual values (reference: Federal Law Gazette I 2009, 2192 - 2194;)
regarding the details of the changes see footnote) 1.
The greenhouse gas emissions in the production, delivery and use of liquid fuels (liquid biomass and fossil fuels) are calculated as follows: E = eurochinacom + el + ep + etd + eu - esca - eccs - eccr – are eee it: E = total emissions with the use of liquid fuel, eurochinacom = emissions from the extraction of raw materials, especially in growing and harvesting of biomass liquid biomass is made el annualised emissions from carbon inventory changes = on the year as a result of land-use changes , ep = emissions during processing, etd = emissions during the delivery, eu = emissions during the use of liquid fuel, esca = emission savings through accumulation of carbon in the soil as a result of better agricultural management practices, eccs = emission savings from carbon capture and geological storage of carbon dioxide, eccr = emission savings from capture and substitution of carbon dioxide, eee = emission savings through excess electricity from combined heat and power.
The emissions associated with the manufacture of plant and equipment are not included.
2. the greenhouse gas emissions caused by liquid fuels (E) liquid fuel (g CO2eq/MJ) are specified in grams of carbon dioxide equivalent per megajoule.
3. (not allocated).
4. the savings achieved through the use of liquid biomass in greenhouse gas emissions are calculated as followed: saving = (EF - EB) / EF are: EB = total emissions when you use liquid biomass, EF = total emissions of the comparison value for fossil fuels.
5. the greenhouse gases taken into account for the purposes referred to in paragraph 1 are carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide (N2O) and methane (CH4). To calculate the CO2 equivalence, these gases are weighted as follows: CO2: 1 N2O: 296 CH4: 23 6.
Emissions from the extraction or cultivation of biomass (eec) include the emissions of the extraction or cultivation process itself, while gathering the raw materials from waste and leakage, as well as in the manufacture of chemicals used for the production or cultivation. The binding of carbon dioxide is not included in the cultivation of biomass. Alternatively to the actual values estimates can be derived for the growing emissions from the average values, calculated for smaller geographical areas identified in the calculation of the default values.
7. the emissions from carbon inventory converted on an annual basis as a result of land-use change (el) are calculated over 20 years through even distribution of total emissions. These emissions are calculated as follows: el = (CSR – CSA) x 3 664 x 1/20 x 1/P - eB there are: el annualised greenhouse gas emissions from carbon inventory = on the year as a result of land use change (measured as mass of carbon-dioxide equivalent per unit of energy of liquid biomass), the carbon stock per unit area associated with the reference surface = CSR (measured as mass of carbon per unit area, including both soil and vegetation). The land use of the reference surface is the land use for the reference date or 20 years before the production of the raw material, depending on whichever is the later, CSA = the carbon stock per unit area associated with the actual land use (measured as mass of carbon per unit area, including both soil and vegetation). If the carbon stock of more than one year is enriched, the estimated carbon stock per unit area is regarded as CSA value after 20 years or at the time of maturity of the plants, depending on whichever is the earlier, P = the productivity of the crop (measured as energy of liquid biomass per unit area per year) and eB = bonus of 29 g CO2eq/MJ of liquid biomass if the biomass is grown in accordance with number 8 on restored degraded areas.
8 the bonus of 29 g CO2eq/MJ will be granted if proof is provided that the concerned area of a) non-agricultural or for any other purpose was used at the time of the reference and b) falls under one of the following two categories: aa)
severely degraded areas, including the former agricultural land or bb) heavily soiled surfaces.
The bonus of 29 g CO2eq/MJ applies for a period of up to ten years from the date of the conversion of the area into an agricultural area, provided that a continuous increase in the carbon stock and a significant decline in the erosion areas aa after set is guaranteed 1 letter b double letter and bb reduces soil pollution on land referred to double.
9 the categories referred to in point 8 set 1 (b) are defined as follows: a) heavily degraded surfaces are surfaces, aa) over a longer period have been salinated or bb) very few organic substances have been brought to them and which are heavily eroded, and b) heavily soiled surfaces are surfaces which are unsuitable for the cultivation of food and feedingstuffs on the basis of soil pollution.
Areas referred to in point 8 set considered 1(b) also all faces that paragraph 4 have been approved under paragraph 4 of Directive 2009/28/EC through a decision of the Commission of the European communities on the basis of article 18 as heavily damaged or heavily soiled surfaces.
10. once the Commission of the European communities on the basis of annex V, part C, point 10 has created guidelines for the calculation of the soil carbon stock set 1 of Directive 2009/28/EC, these are calculating the soil carbon stock after this plant to be based. The authority discloses the contents of these guidelines in the Federal Gazette.
11. the emissions processing (ep) include the emissions processing itself, from waste and leakage, as well as in the production of the chemicals used for processing or other products. In accounting for the consumption of electricity not produced in the plant for the production of liquid fuel, it is assumed that matches the greenhouse gas emission intensity of production and distribution this current of average emission intensity in production and distribution of electricity in a specific region. By way of derogation from sentence 2 manufacturers can use an average value for the electricity produced by a single power generation plant, if this is connected to the mains.
12. the emissions from the delivery (etd) include emissions during the transport and storage of raw and semi-finished materials and for the storage and distribution of finished products. Sentence 1 does not apply to emissions from the transport and distribution, which are taken into account in point 6.
13. the emissions from the use of liquid fuel (eu) be set for liquid biomass to zero.
14. emission savings are limited by capture and geological storage of carbon dioxide (eccs), which have been applied to ep, on the emissions have been avoided through the capture and sequestration of emitted carbon dioxide and that are directly with the extraction, transport, processing and distribution of liquid fuel.
15. the emission savings from removal and replacement of carbon dioxide (eccr) be limited to emissions avoided through the capture of carbon dioxide, where the carbon originates from biomass and is used instead of declining fossil fuel carbon dioxide for industrial products and services.
16. the emission savings from excess electricity from cogeneration (eee) is considered in relation to the excess electricity produced by fuel production systems with combined heat and power, except in cases where a fuel other by-products used as crop residues. To take account of this current surplus, it is assumed that the size of the power heat coupling-(CHP) attachment matches the minimum that is required to provide the heat required for the production of liquid fuel. The reductions of greenhouse gas emissions associated with this excess electricity be equated the amount of greenhouse gas would emitted in the production of a corresponding amount of electricity at a power plant that uses the same fuel as the CHP plant.
17 more other products ("co-products") are manufactured with a process for the production of liquid fuels in addition to the fuel for which emissions are calculated, so the greenhouse gas emissions will be divided between the liquid fuel or its intermediate product and the co-products in accordance with its energy content. The energy content in other by-products as power is determined by the lower calorific value.
18. for the purposes of the calculation referred to in point 17 emissions allocated to are eec + el, + the proportions of ep, etd and eee, the up including apply to the procedure, which produces a by-product. Emissions in an earlier process step assigned to by-products, so the fraction of these emissions is used for this purpose instead of the total emissions allocated to intermediate products in the last step in the process.
In the case of liquid biomass all by-products including the electricity that does not fall under paragraph 16, be taken into account for the purposes of the calculation, except for agricultural crop residues, including straw, bagasse, husks, cobs and nut shells. For the purposes of the calculation, the energy content used by-product with negative energy content with zero.
The life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions from waste, crop residues, including straw, bagasse, pods, corn cobs and nut shells production residues including raw glycerol (not refined glycerine) are set to the collection of these materials with null.
Liquid fuels produced in refineries is the refinery the analysis unit for the purposes of the calculation referred to in point 17.
19. for liquid biomass, which is used for generating electricity, the comparison value for fossil fuel EF is 91 g CO2eq/MJ for the purposes of the calculation referred to in point 4.
For liquid biomass used for power generation in combined heat and power, the comparison value for fossil fuels EF is 85 g CO2eq/MJ for the purposes of the calculation referred to in point 4.

Annex 2 (to § 8 para 4) defaults to the calculation of the greenhouse gas reduction potential (site: Federal Law Gazette I 2009, 2195 - 2198;)
