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 quantification is written for the solution gas conservation system operator or a solution gas conservation project developer. Familiarity with and general understanding of the operation of a solution gas conservation facility is required. This is a flagged protocol, which means it has been...
