The methodology update aims to refine Puro’s methodology to align with the latest advancements and knowledge of geologically stored carbon dioxide. It encompasses the capture, transport, injection, and storage of qualified CO2 streams and introduces enhanced criteria for the accurate measurement of CORCs within appropriate regulatory frameworks. 

Significant enhancements include:

  • Defining eligible CO2 sources—excluding carbon-containing substances
  • Specifying qualified capture and storage techniques
  • Strengthening rules for baseline scenarios and leakage determination
  • Providing detailed methods for quantifying CORCs
  • Elaborating on life cycle assessments
  • Enhancing biomass sustainability criteria
  • Improving data collection and monitoring procedures
  • Fortifying risk assessment and management criteria
