ACR Announces Public Comment Period for LFG Methodology

JULY 8, 2020 – The American Carbon Registry (ACR), a nonprofit enterprise of Winrock International, is soliciting public comments on an updated Methodology for Landfill Gas Destruction and Beneficial Use.

Under the existing published methodology, projects that reduce methane emissions as a result of specified combustion or beneficial use activities are eligible for crediting emission reductions. 
Version 2.0 of the methodology adds as an eligible project activity the installation of an automated collection system that increases landfill gas collection efficiency above that obtained with standard collection methods with methane destruction, conversion, or enhancement.    
Automated collection systems hold tremendous promise to increase the collection of methane from landfills through the use of automatic control and measurement devices that eliminate the need for standard manual wellfield tuning. When combined with cloud- based data collection and analysis tools, automated collection systems result in the ability to continuously optimize wellfield conditions resulting in significant increases in landfill gas collection efficiency.

Stakeholders are invited to review the methodology and submit comments to by August 7, 2020
