|Proposed Methodology No.||MM_PM001|
|Sectoral scope||1. Energy industries (renewable - / non-renewable sources), 13. Waste handling and disposal|
|Title||Power generation and avoidance of landfill gas emissions through combustion of municipal solid waste (MSW)|
GHG emission reduction measures : Installation of MSW incinerators avoids emissions of methane associated with disposed organic waste in a SWDS, and electricity generated by the project facility displaces electricity from a grid or captive power generator which is generated using fossil fuels resulting in GHG emission reductions.
Calculation of reference emissions : Reference emissions are calculated as a sum of the following emissions: CH4 emissions from SWDS: Calculated from the amount of MSW and fraction of each waste type incinerated in the incinerator using the first order decay (FOD) model; and CO2 emissions from a grid or captive power generator: Electricity generated by the project facility multiplied by the emission factor of displaced electricity.
Calculation of project emissions : Project emissions are calculated as a sum of the following emissions: CO2 emissions from combustion of fossil carbon contained in MSW: The amount of MSW multiplied by the fraction of fossil carbon content and the conversion factor of carbon; N2O emissions from combustion of waste: The amount of MSW multiplied by the N2O emission factor associated with incineration; CO2 emissions from electricity used to operate the project facility: Electricity used to operate the project facility multiplied by the emission factor of electricity; and CO2 emissions from auxiliary fossil fuel consumption associated with incineration: The amount of fossil fuel consumption associated with incineration multiplied by the emission factor of the fossil fuel.
Monitoring parameters : Quantity of MSW fed into incinerator (wet basis); Quantity of electricity generated by the project facility; Quantity of electricity consumed by the project facility; and Quantity of auxiliary fossil fuel consumed.
