China Carbon Energy Investment And other institutions have been accused of falsifying their carbon emission reporting data


China’s Ministry of Ecology and Environment on Monday released a number of cases on its official wechat account, including the falsification of carbon emission data reported by China Carbon Energy Investment Corp.According to the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, carbon emission trading is an important policy tool to achieve carbon peak and carbon neutrality, and accurate and reliable data are the lifeline for the efficient and regulated operation of the market.From October to December 2021, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment organized 31 working groups to carry out special supervision and assistance on the quality of carbon emission reporting in order to severely crack down on the falsification of carbon emission data of control and emission enterprises in the power generation industry, strengthen the quality supervision and management of carbon emission reporting, and ensure the stable and healthy operation of the national carbon market.To focus on technical service institutions and their associated control of power generation enterprises as the breakthrough point, around the fuel coal samples, coal quality testing, data check, report preparation, such as the key link, to conduct on-site supervision and inspection, found that carbon can cast technology (Beijing) co., LTD. Tampering with such institutions as fake test report, making false coal sample, report such outstanding problems as inaccurate conclusion distortion.The Ministry of Ecology and Environment said that in order to give full play to the role of warning, now open China Carbon Energy investment Technology (Beijing) Co., Ltd. and other typical problems.I. China Carbon Energy Investment Technology (Beijing) Co., LTD. (hereinafter referred to as China Carbon Energy Investment Technology (Beijing) Co., LTD.) has its registered address in Xicheng District, Beijing.After investigation, CNTC tampered with and forged coal quality test report data and key information, guiding enterprises to produce false coal samples, carbon emission report quality out of control, data fraud problem is prominent.The main problems are as follows: First, tampering and forgery of test reports.Carbon in the test report template to throw the pitch using editable, tampering with Inner Mongolia erdos control line companies such as high and new material co., LTD. Of the element carbon content test report date of inspection, test date, date of report, report number and other important information that will focus were forged components deliver, monthly month detection, and delete the original test report of qr code.Tamper with the elemental carbon content detection results of some control and discharge enterprises, and fabricate total moisture data for conversion and receipt of elemental carbon detection data.The second is to instruct enterprises to produce false coal samples for inspection.Carbon can cast consulting contract concluded with the enterprises control line, promises “on the basis of the scheme and accounting methods, for the power plant carbon emissions quotas to profit, implement quota rich”, a clear “to guide enterprises to carry out the 2019 and 2020, boiling coal elements carbon content detection of sampling, sample preparation, inspection and testing agencies”.Knowing that the company did not retain historical coal samples, China Carbon Energy Investment Co., Ltd. instructed a number of control and discharge enterprises to temporarily produce coal samples to replace the monthly mixed coal samples of 2019 and 2020 for supplementary measurement of elemental carbon content.Third, the carbon emission report is not well prepared and its content is distorted.There are some problems in the carbon emission report compiled by China Carbon Energy Investment Co., LTD., such as overstatement and concealing of important production data such as coal burning capacity, heat supply capacity and outsourced power supply, parameter selection and statistical calculation errors.The quality control of carbon emission report is absent, and the authenticity and accuracy of important original data are not examined. In some projects, there are multiple sets of production data reports and coal quality test reports with different values.The registered address of Beijing Zhongchuang Carbon Investment Technology Co., LTD. (hereinafter referred to as Zhongchuang Carbon Investment) is located in Dongcheng District, Beijing.According to the investigation, cPEC, entrusted by the local ecological environment department, did not comply with the reporting procedures of carbon emissions of enterprises, and did not perform its duties properly. The verification work went through the formalities.The main problems are as follows: First, the working procedures do not conform to regulations and the quality of verification reports is poor.When preparing enterprise verification report, the signer does not participate in the actual verification work, and the phenomenon of “pseudonym” in the report is prominent.The project audit management system is in vain, the technical review check is not in place, and the quality of the inspection report is poor.Second, inadequate performance of duties and inaccurate verification conclusions.Create carbon cast not according to the carbon emissions trading management approach (trial) “corporate greenhouse gas emissions report verification guidelines (try out)” requires to verify the authenticity of the data and documents, such as integrity and accuracy, and carbon emissions in the report of control line and the test report of fraud, “should not” unit, selection of parameters and statistical calculation error, obvious problem “blind”.For the major change of the default value of element carbon content in the initial carbon emission report by the control and emission enterprises to the measured value, the source and authenticity of data are not verified, the work becomes a formality, the performance of duties is not in place, and the conclusions of the verification report are false.The registered address of Qingdao Xino New Energy Co., LTD. (hereinafter referred to as Qingdao Xino) is located in Shinan District, Qingdao city, Shandong Province.After investigation, Qingdao Xino was entrusted by the local ecological environment department to verify and control the carbon emission reporting procedures of enterprises were not in compliance, the verification work went through the formalities, and the verification conclusions were obviously untrue.The main problems are as follows: First, the verification procedures are not in compliance.Qingdao XINO did not implement the requirements of the Verification Guide for Enterprise Greenhouse Gas Emission Report (Trial). During the on-site inspection, it mainly walked around and took photos. It did not verify important documents such as environmental assessment and emission permit, and the verification work went through the formalities.The phenomenon of “pseudonym” in the verification report is prominent, and the signatories of the verification report are inconsistent with the actual inspectors on site.Second, the verification conclusion is untrue.Qingdao XINO “turned a blind eye” to the obvious problems such as “not accepting what should be accepted”, falsified test report, parameter selection and calculation error in carbon emission report of control and emission enterprises, and the work became a mere formality.In the case that the control and discharge enterprise does not have the original record of coal quality inspection, the content of the verification report is fabricated, indicating that the original inspection record has been checked.In view of the use of incoming coal data in the carbon emission report of enterprises, a conclusion was issued that “incoming coal data has been checked and confirmed without error”.Knowing that the control and discharge enterprises did not detect the low calorific value in part of 2019, they issued the conclusion that “enterprises carry out daily monitoring in accordance with the standard method”, and the content of the verification report is obviously inconsistent with the actual situation of enterprises.Liaoning East Coal Testing and Analysis Institute Co., LTD. (hereinafter referred to as Liaoning East Coal Testing and Analysis Institute Co., LTD.) is registered in Shenhe District, Shenyang, Liaoning province.After investigation, Liaoning East Coal co., Ltd. issued false monthly reports for the control and emission enterprises that focused on supplementary measurement of elemental carbon content to help enterprises avoid using default values.The main problems are as follows: First, fabricate false test reports.Since 2020, a number of coal sample control and discharge enterprises have issued monthly detection reports of element carbon content with false dates, tampering with the date of sample receipt and detection.Second, falsify the original test records.Forge original records of hydrocarbon instrument testing, sample testing power of attorney, sample sample number record sheet, instrument and equipment use record, sample processing ledger and other original files.Lack of internal quality control system, coal quality analysis process compliance, authenticity of results is difficult to verify.The ministry said it would continue to urge and guide local ecological and environmental departments to further investigate technical service agencies and companies involved in the problem, and resolutely crack down on illegal activities such as data falsification, concealment and fraud.At the same time, it will work with relevant departments and local governments to further strengthen supervision and management of technical service institutions, standardize consulting, verification and testing services, ensure that the process and results of technical services are true, compliant and fair, and ensure the stable and healthy operation of the carbon market.Source: Zhongxin Jingwei review: Tan Lugang
