Plan a biochar storage system for carbon capture and storage

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x
Registered Training Organisations
Trying to find someone to train or assess you? This link lists all the RTOs that are currently registered to deliver FWPFGM6201, 'Plan a biochar storage system for carbon capture and storage'.
Google Links
links to google searches, with filtering in place to maximise the usefulness of the returned results
Books
Reference books for 'Plan a biochar storage system for carbon capture and storage' on fishpond.com.au. This online store has a huge range of books, pretty reasonable prices, free delivery in Australia *and* they give a small commission to ntisthis.com for every purchase, so go nuts :)


Elements and Performance Criteria

ELEMENTS

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA

Elements describe the essential outcomes.

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element. Where bold italicised text is used, further information is detailed in the range of conditions.

1. Assess bio-char carbon storage system feasibility

1.1 Research bio-char carbon storage systems.

1.2 Explore organisational need for bio-char carbon storage system and investigate context of requirements through consultation.

1.3 Investigate context of bio-char carbon storage system and clarify requirements with appropriate personnel.

1.4 Identify and document user requirements and environmental parameters.

1.5 Investigate bio-char carbon storage system options and identify installation, operation and maintenance requirements.

1.6 Make recommendations about need for and appropriate type of system based on findings.

2. Determine facility requirements

2.1 Select feed stock for bio-char process and calculate amount that can be obtained for pyrolysis.

2.2 Select method of pyrolysis based on feed stock and appropriate outputs.

2.3 Estimate costs of transporting liquid and solid by-products.

2.4 Assess amount of material to be processed and consider ability to feed into power grid.

2.5 Determine process conditions.

3. Design a bio-char carbon storage facility

3.1 Design facility to provide optimal conditions for carbon storage.

3.2 Identify and address legal requirements or government regulations impacting on proposed facility.

3.3 Document design specification and communicate relevant information.

3.4 Review overall operation and output of proposed facility for economic sustainability in line with long-term direction and purpose of organisation.

4. Plan implementation of bio-char carbon storage facility

4.1 Develop construction plan in line with accepted design principles.

4.2 Evaluate internal resource abilities and determine requirement for external expertise.

4.3 Record material, resource and supply provision requirements based on construction plan.

4.4 Estimate labour requirements based on work plans and schedules.

4.5 Calculate operating expense budget, indicating input and output costs applicable to proposed facility.
