On Hold 04 June 2023

The proposed new methodology applies to project activities that avoid GHG emissions by using black soldier fly larvae, an insect, to dispose of organic waste. A variety of organic waste treatment technologies are covered. The proposed methodology is globally applicable.


The methodology idea note was submitted by Vanke Foundation (opens on external site) and is currently on hold, as per section 3.1.7(2) of the VCS Methodology Development and Review Process, 4.3 (PDF).

Verra will consider resuming the development of this idea note pending further developments with the ongoing development of another methodology, CN0087 Methodology for the Avoidance of Greenhouse Gas Emissions through Composting of Food Waste using Insects.
