This Methodology Determination (method) provides the rules for crediting emissions reductions from the management of manure at piggery and dairy businesses as part of the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF). Reductions achieved through destroying or avoiding methane emissions from managing effluent can receive credits under the ERF.
To use this method in your project and take part in the ERF, you need to apply to the Clean Energy Regulator. The Regulator manages project registration, compliance and crediting emissions reductions for projects under the ERF.
This method replaced three other methods. You can’t register a new project using these methods but existing projects can opt to stay on them or move to the updated method:
The Emissions Reduction Assurance Committee conducts method reviews.
Public consultation, method drafts, and the Committee’s advice to the Minister is on our department’s Consultation hub.
