  • Methodology for Assessing Methane Recovery from Landfill Gas
    Version: 1.0
    Status: Under Development
    Revision Status: Closed for Public Comment
    Comment Period: -
    Description:

    This methodology covers the installation or capacity addition of a landfill gas capture and destruction or gainful use system. It aligns with the methane recovery procedures of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), and is based on the CDM methane recovery methodology ACM0001 Large-scale Consolidated Methodology: Flaring or use of landfill gas and the Climate Action Reserve‚Äôs U.S. Landfill Project Protocol Version 6.0.  

  • Methodology for Assessing Methane Recovery from Anaerobic Digestion of Manure to Produce Biogas
    Version: 1.0
    Status: Under Development
    Revision Status: Closed for Public Comment
    Comment Period: -
    Description:

    This methodology covers the installation, replacement or modification of anaerobic manure management systems in livestock farms resulting in anaerobic digestion of manure to produce biogas, which is then used, sold, or flared. The collection of manure from multiple farms to be digested in a central location is included. This methodology aligns with the methane recovery procedures of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). It is based on the CDM methane recovery methodologies; AMS-III.D Methane recovery in animal manure management systems and AMS-III.AO Methane recovery through controlled anaerobic digestion. 

  • Methodology for Assessing Emissions Reductions via Collection and Destruction of HFCs
    Version: 1.0
    Status: Under Development
    Revision Status: Closed for Public Comment
    Comment Period: -
    Description:

    This methodology covers the collection and destruction of HFCs which would otherwise be vented to the atmosphere in Montreal Protocol Article 5 countries which have ratified the Kigali Amendment. The countries must not have regulations against refrigerant venting, or such regulations must not be enforced. Aggregation and destruction or reclamation of HFCs may be performed in Article 5 or non-Article 5 countries.

  • Global Heat Reduction Registry Standard
    Version: 1.0
    Status: Under Development
    Revision Status: Closed for Public Comment
    Comment Period: -
    Description:

    The purpose of this Standard is to establish general requirements related to the Global Heat Reduction Registry, including the development of climate mitigation projects, validation and verification of radiative forcing (RF) reduction (i.e., heat reduction), co-benefits and trade-offs associated with such projects, project registration, and issuance of credits.
