Destruction of Fluoroform (HFC-23) Waste Gas Streams

This methodology developed by Perspectives GMBH and Quimobásicos, S.A. de C.V uses a performance benchmark to quantify emission reductions from project activities destroying HFC-23 generated from the production of HCFC-22. The methodology ensures that the baseline amount of HCFC-22 eligible for crediting is capped at an amount that is required under the Montreal Protocol’s phase out of HCFC-22 and financially viable in the absence of revenues from HFC-23 emission reductions.

This methodology was open for public comment from 10 October 2013 until 15 November 2013. Public comments are closed.

Quantification Methodology for Underbalanced Drilling with Natural Gas and Formation Gas Recovery

The purpose of this methodology is to quantify greenhouse gas emissions reductions from underbalanced drilling (UBD) with natural gas as opposed to underbalanced drilling with nitrogen. The opportunity for generating carbon offsets with this methodology arises mainly from direct and indirect greenhouse gas emission reductions through the recovery of formation or produced gas during UBD that would otherwise have been flared.

Revisions to ACM0008 to Include Methane Capture and Destruction from Abandoned Coal Mines, v1.0

This methodology quantifies the emissions reductions generated by capturing and destroying methane from abandoned/decommissioned coal mines.  The capture and destruction of methane prevents the GHG from being emitted into the atmosphere during once a coal mine is abandoned.  The methodology quantifies GHG emission reductions by providing an approach to determine the quantity of methane that would be released without the project.

This methodology was open for public comment from 25 May 2011 until 13 August 2009. Public comments are closed.

Interception and Destruction of Fugitive Methane from Coal Bed Methane (CBM) Seeps, v1.0

The methodology quantifies GHG emission reductions from activities which capture, use, and destroy methane emitted from coal bed seeps. Projects activities involve construction of a gas interception system to collect and aggregate gas that would otherwise result in fugitive methane emissions.

The methodology is applicable to all projects located at methane seep locations including projects near coal bed methane production operations.

This methodology was open for public comment from 15 June 2010 until 14 July 2010. Public comments are closed.
