Description

In November 2015 the Government of Alberta introduced the Climate Leadership Plan to reduce carbon emissions. This document presents the government's plan, for fiscal year 2018-2019, to continue implementation of the Plan, including linkages with the Outcome Framework (included as an appendix)...

Description

Reductions in methane emissions can be achieved through optimally-operated aerobic composting. This quantification protocol sets the parameters for offset projects involving aerobic composting. The baseline condition for this protocol is the disposal of eligible waste in a Class II municipal...

Description

Anaerobic decomposition of organic waste materials in a landfill generates gases that contain approximately 60 per cent methane, a greenhouse gas (GHG). The amount of methane emitted from a landfill can be reduced through the installation of landfill gas capture and combustion technology to...

Description

This protocol is applicable to projects that involve the capture and destruction of methane produced from anaerobic wastewater treatment processes and take actions to prevent the venting of biogas to the atmosphere. These systems could be installed as retrofits or modifications to existing...

Description

This quantification protocol is applicable to the quantification of direct and indirect reductions of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions resulting from the implementation of streamlined waste heat recovery projects. The protocol quantifies the emission reductions from the avoidance of fossil fuel...

Description

This protocol is applicable to projects that involve the substitution of a proportion of the bitumen binder used in conventional hot mix asphalt for a sulphur product that reduces required quantities of aggregate and bitumen, fuel usage due to reduced mix production temperatures and reduces...

Description

This protocol quantifies the emission reductions from the avoidance of fossil fuel consumption, replaced by municipal solid waste on an equivalent energy potential basis. It also specifically includes reductions in GHG emissions due to any heat/power production and electricity generation related...

Description

This protocol quantifies reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions resulting from the installation of a dedicated N2O abatement catalyst inside the ammonia burner of a nitric acid plant. This protocol applies to projects where the nitrous oxide would otherwise have been released into the...

Description

This protocol serves as a generic ‘recipe’ for project proponents to follow in order to meet the measurement, monitoring, and greenhouse gas quantification requirements for reductions resulting from conversion of instrument gas to instrument air in process control systems. A process flow diagram...
