Safeguard Mechanism prescribed landfill gas capture rate: have your say

Main content area


18 August 2021

The Safeguard Mechanism is part of the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Act 2007. It places legislated emissions limits, known as baselines, on Australia's largest emitters.

We are consulting on a proposed amendment to the Safeguard Mechanism that will affect landfill facilities covered by the Safeguard Mechanism.

Landfill facilities can use a formula to set their emissions baseline. The amendment will insert a prescribed landfill gas capture efficiency rate into the formula.

Read the exposure draft package and give feedback on our Consultation hub.

Consultation closes on 15 September 2021.
