1              Name of regulation

                This regulation is the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Amendment Regulation 2012 (No. 6).

2              Commencement

                This regulation commences on the day after it is registered.

3              Amendment of Renewable Energy (Electricity) Regulations 2001

                Schedule 1 amends the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Regulations 2001.

[3]           Schedule 6, subclause 658 (3)

substitute

         (3)   For the production of coke oven coke, the electricity baseline for calculating the amount of a liable entity’s partial exemption is 0.0397 MWh per tonne of coke oven coke on a dry weight basis that:

                (a)    meets the necessary requirements for use in the integrated iron and steel manufacturing process; and

               (b)    is produced as part of carrying on the emissions-intensive trade-exposed activity; and

                (c)    is not a relevant product for the emissions-intensive trade‑exposed activity of production of coke oven coke.

[6]           Schedule 6, after Part 44

insert

Part 45        Production of coke oven coke

Division 1       Production of coke oven coke

731         Production of coke oven coke

                The production of coke oven coke is the physical and chemical transformation (at a temperature higher than 900 °C) of coal into coke oven coke that:

                (a)    has a coke strength after reaction (CSR) value of more than 50% for at least 80% of the coke oven coke produced; and

               (b)    has a coke reactivity index (CRI) value of less than 40% for at least 80% of the coke oven coke produced.

Division 2       Classification of activity

732         Classification of activity

                The production of coke oven coke is a highly emissions‑intensive activity.

Division 3       Electricity baseline for calculating partial exemption

733         Electricity baseline for product

                The electricity baseline for calculating the amount of a liable entity’s partial exemption in respect of the production of coke oven coke is 0.0109 MWh per tonne of coke oven coke on a dry weight basis that:

                (a)    has a coke strength after reaction (CSR) value of more than 50% for at least 80% of the coke oven coke produced; and

               (b)    has a coke reactivity index (CRI) value of less than 40% for at least 80% of the coke oven coke produced; and

                (c)    is not a relevant product for the emissions-intensive trade‑exposed activity of integrated iron and steel manufacturing; and

               (d)    is produced by carrying on the emissions-intensive trade‑exposed activity; and

                (e)    is of saleable quality.

Note   Saleable quality is defined in regulation 22C.

Part 46        Production of hydrogen peroxide

Division 1       Production of hydrogen peroxide

734         Production of hydrogen peroxide

                The production of hydrogen peroxide is the chemical transformation of hydrogen (H) feedstocks and oxygen (O) feedstocks:

                (a)    to produce crude aqueous hydrogen peroxide solution that has a concentration of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2(aq)) of at least 39% with respect to mass; and

               (b)    to later produce saleable aqueous hydrogen peroxide solution that has a concentration of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2(aq)) of at least 34% with respect to mass.

Division 2       Classification of activity

735         Classification of activity

                The production of hydrogen peroxide is a moderately emissions‑intensive activity.

Division 3       Electricity baseline for calculating partial exemption

736         Electricity baseline for product

                The electricity baseline for calculating the amount of a liable entity’s partial exemption in respect of the production of hydrogen peroxide is 0.858 MWh per tonne of 100% equivalent hydrogen peroxide in saleable aqueous hydrogen peroxide solution that:

                (a)    has a concentration of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2(aq)) of at least 34% with respect to mass; and

               (b)    is produced by carrying on the emissions-intensive trade‑exposed activity; and

                (c)    is of saleable quality.

Note   Saleable quality is defined in regulation 22C.
