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.
