Climate Action Reserve: Mexico Livestock Project Protocol

Sadie S

This Climate Action Reserve (CAR) protocol provides a methodology for accounting for emission reductions from biogas control projects that capture and destroy methane from manure management. It is applicable to a range of technologies such as:

  • Centralized digesters
  • Co-digestion of organic waste (greenhouse gas [GHG] benefits not quantified for non-manure waste streams)
  • Methane destruction onsite (enclosed flare, open flare, electricity generation, thermal energy production)
  • Methane destruction offsite (direct use via pipeline)
  • Methane destroyed as fuel for vehicles (onsite or offsite)
  • Biogas destruction in fuel cells

Eligible projects must be located in Mexico.
