Methodology Idea Note

CDM methodology AM0073 (external) is applicable to project activities where manure is collected from multiple livestock farms and subsequently treated in a single central treatment plant. Existing anaerobic manure treatment systems in multiple livestock farms are replaced with a central treatment plant with one or a combination of animal waste management systems (AWMSs) that results in less GHG emissions.
The proposed revision aims to make the methodology more applicable and easier to implement for projects involving small farms by addressing logistical challenges.
