Quantification protocol for the anaerobic decomposition of agricultural materials (version 1) [Flagged protocol]

Description

This quantification protocol is written for those familiar with anaerobic digester projects. Some familiarity with, or general understanding of, the operation of these projects is expected. The opportunity for generating carbon offsets with this protocol arises primarily from the indirect reductions of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from displacing fossil fuel based electricity, thermal energy or natural gas in gas transmission systems with the biogas from the anaerobic digestion of materials (primarily agricultural materials such as manure, silage, dead animal stocks, etc). There is a small opportunity to generate direct offsets from direct combustion or diversion of waste from landfills, if the full flexibility of the protocol is employed. This is a flagged protocol, which means it has been identified by the department for potential withdrawal or replacement. Project developers may not implement an emission offset project using a flagged protocol without prior written authorization from the director.
