Freedom of Information documents show that when designing the ERF CCS method, the Clean Energy Regulator consulted almost exclusively with fossil fuel companies and big emitters, while actively excluding independent researchers.
Members of the Emissions Reduction Assurance Committee (ERAC) participated in the carbon capture and storage (CCS) method co-design in their industry roles and then advised government as ERAC members on the method they had helped design.
This report focuses on the ERF carbon credit method for CCS that enabled the Moomba CCS project to go ahead, and documents who was involved in its development. It illustrates that the processes and public agencies that led to the Glasgow announcement were strongly influenced by fossil fuel industries and major emitters.
