(2)  an estimate, produced by a suitably qualified person, of
(a)  the annual greenhouse gas emissions attributable to the carrying on of the activity or the use of the equipment or process covered by the application;
(b)  in the case of the hydrocarbon-related activities referred to in Chapter IV of Title II of Part II and in addition to the emissions referred to in subparagraph a, the greenhouse gas emissions attributable to the construction and closure of the facilities;
(3)  a description of the reduction measures for greenhouse gas emissions that the applicant plans to put in place at each stage in the carrying on of the activity or use of the equipment or process, along with an estimate of the ensuing reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, produced by a suitably qualified person, with the exception of the emissions attributable to the use of residual biomass as the principal fuel in equipment referred to in paragraphs 1 and 2 of Schedule I;
(4)  a demonstration that the greenhouse gas emissions attributable to the carrying on of the activity or use of the equipment or process have been considered and minimized, taking the best available technology and technical and economic feasibility into account, as established by the applicant.
