South Coast Air Quality Management RECLAIM Trading Credit Market

Each compliance entity subject to the SCAQMD RECLAIM Trading Program must hold RECLAIM Trading Credits (RTCs) equal to its annual emissions (quarterly and annually). Facilities that have excess RTCs credits may sell their excess compliance entities that do not have sufficient RTCs to meet their compliance requirements.

RTCs are allocated to specific facilities annually. Over the years, the RTC allocation schedule has been modified/shaved through regulatory change.   

AQC provides consulting and brokerage services to our clients to ensure their compliance requirements are met, and that any excess RTCs are bought and sold at the most opportunistic time.
