Biomethane is a natural gas substitute, produced from the capture and refinement of waste gases. The biomethane method package allows biomethane produced under waste and agricultural methods to receive Australian carbon credit units (ACCUs) for reducing emissions.
The variations to the landfill gas (generation) method, the domestic, commercial and industrial wastewater treatment method, and the animal effluent management method that comprise the biomethane method package, were made by the Minister in January 2022.
For more information on the varied methods visit the
landfill gas (generation) method, the
domestic, commercial and industrial wastewater treatment method , and the
animal effluent management method pages.
For information on public consultation and consideration of the method by the Emissions Reduction Assurance Committee (ERAC), visit the
biomethane method page on the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources’ consultation hub.
