Revisions to AMS-III.Y to Include Use of Organic Bedding Material, v1.0
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.
Energy Efficiency and Solid Waste Diversion Activities within a Sustainable Community
This methodology provides a framework for the quantification of emission reductions for grouped projects, where energy efficiency and solid waste diversion activities have been initiated by a Sustainable Community Service Promoter (SCSP) for an assortment of Client Facilities grouped in a Territory. This methodology requires that the SCSP uses a consolidated, Information and Communication Technology-enabled data monitoring and collection system to track project activity data.
