Quantification protocol for aerobic composting : specified gas emitters regulation (Version 2.0)

Description

Organic wastes decomposing in anaerobic conditions in a landfill will result in the release of methane through a process known as methanogenesis. Methane is a greenhouse gas that has a 25 times higher global warming potential (GWP) than carbon dioxide (see Carbon Offset Emission Factors Handbook). Aerobic composting projects can result in significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions when compared against anaerobic decomposition emissions released in the project baseline.
