ACR Announces Open Public Comment Period for Two Methodologies

The American Carbon Registry (ACR), a nonprofit enterprise of Winrock International, is soliciting public comments on two methodologies:

  • A new Methodology for Capturing and Destroying Methane from U.S. Coal and Trona Mines to quantify GHG emission reductions associated with the capture and destruction of methane that would otherwise be vented into the atmosphere as a result of mining operations at active underground and surface coal and trona mines and abandoned underground coal mines. Not only an important GHG mitigation activity, coal mine methane mitigation also contributes to mine safety initiatives and can increase the supply of a clean energy source when methane is recovered and used to produce electricity or heat.

    Stakeholders are invited to review the methodologies and submit comments to ACR@Winrock.org by November 18, 2018.
