Canadian Aviation Regulations

Version of section 1000.23 from 2021-01-01 to 2022-09-11:

  •  (1) A private operator or air operator may claim an emissions reduction resulting from the use of CORSIA eligible fuels in a given calendar year and, if a claim is made, the reduction is to be calculated for each CORSIA eligible fuel using the following formula and be expressed in tonnes:

    FCFx[ΣfMSf,yx(1LSfLC)]

    where

    FCF
    is the fuel conversion factor, expressed in kg CO2/kg fuel, and is equal to
    • (a) 3.16 for Jet-A and Jet-A1 fuels; or

    • (b) 3.10 for aviation gasoline (AvGas) and Jet-B fuel;

    MSf,y
    is the total mass, expressed in tonnes, of a given CORSIA eligible fuel f claimed for the given calendar year y, as calculated in accordance with subsection 1020.23(3) of the CORSIA Standard and as reported in accordance with section 1000.30 of these Regulations;
    LSf
    is the life-cycle emissions value for a given CORSIA eligible fuel f, calculated in accordance with subsection (2) and expressed in gCO2e/MJ; and
    LC
    is the life-cycle emissions value for fuel, expressed in gCO2e/MJ and equal to
    • (a) 89 for jet fuels; and

    • (b) 95 for aviation gasoline (AvGas).

  • (2) For the purposes of calculating the life-cycle emissions value for a CORSIA eligible fuel,

    • (a) if a default life-cycle emissions value is used, the private operator or air operator must use the value referred to in subsection 1020.23(1) of the CORSIA Standard; or

    • (b) if an actual life-cycle emissions value is used, the private operator or air operator must

      • (i) use the calculation methodology referred to in paragraph 1020.23(2)(a) of the CORSIA Standard, and

      • (ii) ensure that the application of the calculation methodology is verified in accordance with paragraph 1020.23(2)(b) of the CORSIA Standard.

  • (3) In order to claim an emissions reduction resulting from the use of CORSIA eligible fuels during a given compliance period, a private operator or air operator must submit the information required by subparagraph 1000.30(1)(a)(ii) no later than in its verified emissions report in respect of the final year of that compliance period.
