Destruction of methane generated from manure in piggeries

26 August 2016

This method applies to projects that reduce the methane generated from manure in piggeries. Emitted gas is collected from covered lagoons and combusted to prevent the release of biogas containing methane. Captured emissions can be used to produce heat and electricity, or destroyed through the use of flares.

The project requires installing and operating gas capture-and-combustion equipment and installing new covered lagoons or covering existing uncovered treatment lagoons. The methane component of the biogas is combusted using flares, and/or an electricity generation system, and/or a gas boiler.

The destruction of methane generated from manure in piggeries method – 1.1 was varied in June 2015. The method must be read together with the methodology determination variation, which provides details on the changes.

The previous destruction of methane generated from manure in piggeries method is closed for new projects.

Method variations

Section 114 of the Carbon Credits (Carbon F​arming Initiative) Act 2011 (the Act)​ allows for methods to be revised and varied. This is to ensure methods continue to operate as originally intended. Variations to methods are developed and drafted by the Department of the Environment and Energy. Information on draft methods and method variations is available on the Department of the Environment and Energy’s website.

The Clean Energy Regulator recommends making yourself familiar with proposed method variations relevant to your project should they arise, and how any changes between the original method and the varied method may affect your project plan.
