VCS has approved a revision of CDM methodology AMS-III.Y, Methane avoidance through separation of solids from wastewater or manure treatment systems.
VMR0003: Revisions to AMS-III.Y to Include Use of Organic Bedding Material, v1.0 (developed by Native Energy, Inc.) expands the CDM methodology to apply to previously ineligible manure management projects at livestock facilities. AMS-III.Y currently cannot be applied to projects that make use of any organic bedding material such as manure, hay or sawdust.
VMR0003 maintains the conservativeness of AMS-III.Y by introducing new approaches for measuring and quantifying methane emissions in the baseline scenario.
