Sectoral Scope

13. Waste handling and disposal


This is a revision to CDM methodology AMS-III.Y, Methane Avoidance through Separation of Solids from Wastewater or Manure Treatment Systems.

An AMS-III.Y applicability condition makes manure treatment projects ineligible if the livestock farm uses organic bedding material in its barns or intentionally adds organic material to the manure stream. This revision removes the applicability condition. The means for measuring and quantifying baseline emissions have also been modified such that the change in applicability does not affect the conservativeness of the underlying methodology.

The underlying methodology is available on the CDM website.
