The Asphalt Pavement Association is pleased to offer, for the 29th year, a voluntary technical services program to assist in completing the 2022 CES. Emission point sources, such as facilities/plants/activities, are required to submit their CES Emission Inventory electronically using the Division of Air Quality’s (DAQ)State and Local Emissions Inventory System (SLEIS) computer program no later than May 1, 2023.  Similar to previous years, the DAQ is expected to require the inclusion of the condensable particulate matter (PM) fraction of total PM. Condensable PM is the fraction of PM which is vaporous in a vent stack that becomes solid in the atmosphere. If your facility has fuel-burning emissions, condensable PM may impact the total PM emissions. For each participant who requests the service, Potesta & Associates, Inc. will send a request for information required to prepare the annual emissions estimates.  Participation in this program is voluntary and pricing is listed in the online information.  For additional information please contact John Crane at jcrane@asphaltwv.com.

Asphalt Pavement Now Eligible for Federal Funding to Reduce Carbon

Monday, May 02, 2022

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) released its Carbon Reduction Program (CRP) Implementation Guidance, unlocking $6.4 billion in formula funding over five years to help states and localities develop carbon reduction strategies. While the CRP was established in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA)of 2021, also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), NAPA sought inclusion of paving activities by highlighting asphalt pavement's many climate-friendly technologies, to help states and localities meet their climate goals.

Such efforts were sent to Senate Committee on Environment & Public Works Chairman Tom Carper and Ranking Member Shelley Moore Capito requesting support for including the Stabenow and Wicker amendment to add eligibility for "projects using pavement technologies, including designs, materials and practices that reduce carbon emissions."

Due to sustained efforts by NAPA and transportation construction partners, the CRP guidance makes low-carbon pavement technologies eligible for this important program.

"NAPA worked to bring a coalition of stakeholder groups together to advocate for this," said NAPA Executive Vice President for Advocacy Jay Hansen. "It opens opportunities for our industry to provide carbon-reduction solutions for the citizens and communities we serve across the country."

The CRP guidance includes low-carbon asphalt pavements as follows:

Sustainable pavements technologies that reduce embodied carbon during the manufacture and/or construction of highway projects could be eligible for CRP if a lifecycle assessment (LCA) demonstrates substantial reductions in CO2 compared to the implementing Agency's typical pavement-related practices. The LCA Pave Tool can be used to assess the CO2 impacts of pavement material and design decisions.

What this means:

·       There is a new core highway program in which low-carbon asphalt pavement technologies are now eligible.

·       This is NOT a mandate on state transportation agencies or the industry, but a free-market approach to utilize ready-to-go pavement technologies that reduce carbon emissions.

Detailed information is available directly from FHWA by clicking here.

The availability of funding for low-carbon pavement technologies supports the asphalt pavement industry's goal to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050, outlined in The Road Forward, which will require working with partners like FHWA and state departments of transportation. NAPA is launching a webinar series, The Road to Zero: Making Sense (and Cents) of Climate Stewardship, beginning with An Introduction to The Road Forward on May 2.
