The revision to the methodology, inter alia, expands the applicability of the methodology to refinery gas and other natural gas operations and introduces a further alternative to calculate baseline emissions based on default values. Inputs are requested from interested stakeholders and inputs received will be considered at the Panel's 51st meeting, schedule from 15-19 August 2011. The call for inputs is open from 7-17 July 2011.
