生态环境部办公厅:关于开展重点行业建设项目碳排放环境影响评价试点的通知

Ministry of Ecology and Environment (MEE): Notice on Launching Pilot Projects of Carbon Emissions Environmental Impact Assessment of Construction Projects in Key Industries

2021年7月21日,生态环境部办公厅发布《关于开展重点行业建设项目碳排放环境影响评价试点的通知》,组织河北、吉林、浙江、山东、广东、重庆、陕西等部分省份开展电力、钢铁、建材、有色、石化和化工等重点行业建设项目碳排放环境影响评价试点,以摸清重点行业碳排放水平和减排潜力,探索形成建设项目污染物和碳排放协同管控评价技术方法,打通污染源与碳排放管理统筹融合路径,从源头实现减污降碳协同作用。试点目标到2021年12月底前,试点地区发布建设项目碳排放环境影响评价相关文件。本次试点主要开展建设项目二氧化碳(CO2)排放环境影响评价,有条件的地区还可开展以甲烷(CH4)、氢氟碳化物(HFCs)等其他温室气体排放为主的建设项目环境影响评价试点。

在本通知发布之前,重庆市、福建省福州市以及浙江省先后发布了各自的建设项目碳排放评价编制指南,除了重庆市试点范围与国家确定的重点行业相同,福州市和浙江省都增加了试点的重点行业范围。随着通知发布的《重点行业建设项目碳排放环境影响评价试点技术指南(试行)》,预计其它试点地区很快也会明确符合地方特点的重点行业,并发布相应的试点办法和导则。

On July 21, 2021, MEE issued the “Notice on Launching the Pilot Project of Carbon Emission Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) of Construction Projects in Key Industries”. Organizing together with Hebei, Jilin, Zhejiang, Shandong, Guangdong, Chongqing and Shaanxi province to carry out Carbon Emission EIA pilot project in following key industries (i.e. power generation, steel, building material, non-ferrous metal, petrochemical and chemical industrial sectors). The objective is to investigate and understand these key industries carbon emission levels and their carbon emission reduction capabilities; to explore a coordinated control evaluation methods for pollutants and carbon dioxide emission during project construction; to establish a path for the combined management of the sources of pollution and carbon emission; and eventually will synergize to achieve the reduction of pollution and lower carbon emissions at its source. The government of pilot project provinces shall issue relevant construction projects carbon emission EIA document by the end of December 2021. As for these pilot projects, the focus point will be on carbon dioxide (CO2) EIA. However, when conditions permit, those pilot project province should also carried out methane (CH4), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and other greenhouse gas emissions EIA.

Before the issuance of this notice, Chongqing City, Fuzhou City of Fujian Province and Zhejiang Province successively issued their own construction project carbon emission evaluation guidelines. The target industries in Chongqing City guideline is the same industries identified by the MEE, while Fuzhou City and Zhejiang Province have expanded their target industries to meet MEE Notice. Following the announcement of the “Key Industry Construction Project Carbon Emission Environmental Impact Assessment Pilot Technical Guidelines (Trial)”, it is expected that government of other pilot provinces will soon identify key industries that fulfil local characteristics and release corresponding pilot project methods and guidelines.
