Landfill gas method
This Methodology Determination (method) provides the rules for crediting the emissions reductions achieved by upgrading, installing, or reinstating landfill gas collection systems.
Under the Emissions Reduction Fund (ERF), emissions reduced by collecting and then combusting landfill gas from waste deposited before 1 July 2012 and after 30 June 2014 can receive credits.

Using the method
To use this method in your project and take part in the ERF, you need to apply to the Clean Energy Regulator. The Regulator develops the methods and manages project registration, compliance and crediting emissions reductions for projects under the ERF.
Visit the Regulator’s website for:
- information on the landfill gas method and how to use it
- project planning guidance, including eligibility requirements and how to apply
Consultation on the method
The Emissions Reduction Assurance Committee conducts public consultations. Once finalised the Committee advises the Minister on whether the method meets the offsets integrity standards.
