This Methodology Determination (method) provides the rules for crediting emissions reductions under the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF) through the capture and permanent storage of greenhouse gases in underground geological formations.
Read the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative – Carbon Capture and Storage) Methodology Determination 2021 (Carbon capture and storage method).
Read the Explanatory Statement (for the original Determination as made).
There are specific arrangements for carbon capture and storage (CSS) projects covered by this method. These enable CCS projects to have an extended accounting period, and more time to defer the start of crediting periods.
Read the Explanatory Statement for the amendment.
