Sectoral scope 13. Waste Handling and Disposal
Title Anaerobic digestion of organic waste for biogas utilization within wholesale markets
Summaries GHG emission reduction measures : This methodology comprises measures to avoid the emissions of methane to the atmosphere from organic waste that have been left to decay anaerobically at a Solid Waste Disposal Site (SWDS) and to introduce renewable energy technologies that supply users with biogas that displaces fossil fuel use.
Calculation of reference emissions : 1. For avoidance of methane emissions, the reference emissions are calculated based on the weight of organic waste prevented from disposal at the SWDS using first-order decay (FOD) model. 2. For renewable energy technologies that displace technologies using fossil fuel, the reference emissions are calculated based on the monitored amount of biogas supplied, Net Calorific Value (NCV) of the biogas and CO2 emission factor of the reference fossil fuel.
Calculation of project emissions : Project emissions are calculated on the basis of monitored electricity consumption.
Monitoring parameters : Amount of organic waste prevented from disposal in the SWDS excluding sludge, Amount of processed biogas supplied to heat generation equipments
