Platts, part of S&P Global Commodity Insights, will launch daily assessments for crop feedstock biomethane guarantees of origin (GOs) in the UK, and for manure feedstock biomethane GOs in Denmark and the Netherlands.
The new daily assessments are for the current-year and year-ahead vintages for both the UK crop and Denmark/Netherlands manure assessments, with a minimum trade volume for assessment of 1 GWh.
They also include carbon intensity (CI) value definitions for crop and manure.
The CI value definition range for the UK crop biomethane GO assessments is for certificates with an associated CI value of higher than 25.00 g Co2e/MJ with no maximum.
Platts understands that biomethane of significantly higher carbon intensity do not receive GOs. For manure biomethane GO assessments in Denmark and the Netherlands, the CI definition is for values lower than minus 85.00 g Co2e/MJ.
Existing assessments for European biomethane GOs, with CI from 25.00 g to 0 g CO2e/MJ, will be relabeled as waste.
The UK crop assessments will be published in GBP/MWh and Eur/MWh, while the Denmark and Netherlands manure assessments will be published in Eur/MWh.
The assessments will be published on a 4:30 pm London timestamp from Feb. 20.
