As an Equator Principles financial institution, EDC is committed to applying the Equator Principles (EP) to all of its investments. EPs are the financial industry’s benchmark for determining, assessing and managing environmental and social risks in projects. PEs form a risk management framework that identifies, assesses and manages these risks through a minimum standard of due diligence and oversight to support responsible risk decision-making. PEs have global application and apply to all industry sectors and more specifically to the four financial products of Project Finance Advisory Services, Project Finance, Project Related Corporate Loans and Bridge Loans. .
The primary objectives of the EDC directive were to demonstrate that ReGen III’s proposed recycling facility in Texas meets the requirements set forth by EDC and that the company’s proposed recycling facility in Texas was accurately classified as Category “B”. within the meaning of the EDC directive. The environmental and social effects associated with Category “B” projects are generally site-specific; few, if any, are irreversible; and in most cases, mitigation measures can be designed more easily than in category “A” projects. In effect, the assessment determines whether the proposed recycling facility in Texas demonstrates an improvement in the existing environmental and social impacts of the Oiltanking Brownfield.
GHD has identified and focused on the following areas during its risk assessment process:
- Impacts on local indigenous communities
- Human rights impacts
- Oil transport and logistics (impacts, spills, other risk categories)
- Impacts on air quality
- Climate risk assessment (physical and transition risks)
- Life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions compared to crude oil production and refining
GHD has found that ReGen III’s proposed recycling facility in Texas, its operations and associated management systems will adequately address potential risks associated with impacts on indigenous communities, human rights, climate change, to air quality and transportation, as stated in EP4 and as a requirement of EDC. Environmental and Social Directive. GHD has also determined that the proposed ReGen III facility is specifically classified as Category “B”.
As part of the environmental portion of the EDC Directive, GHD has prepared a Greenhouse Gas (“GHG”) Inventory of GHG Emissions and Intensity of the proposed recycling facility in Texas. GHD’s analysis looked at scopes 1-3 and carbon intensity and concluded that the ReGen™ process provides at least a 72.6% reduction in CO2e carbon intensity compared to production of similar base oils derived from virgin crude oil processes and that there is a significant environmental benefit associated with the ReGen III process. A separate and ongoing life cycle assessment study conducted by GHD will be released in Q2 2022.
