This methodology determination (method) provides the rules for crediting emission reductions for Australian Carbon Credit Unit (ACCU) Scheme projects that install and use gas capture equipment to reroute fugitive emissions to flare devices for combustion. Abatement achieved by a facility converting methane into carbon dioxide by flaring can receive credits under the ACCU.
Using the method
To use this method and participate in the ACCU Scheme, you need to apply to the Clean Energy Regulator. The Regulator manages project registration, compliance and crediting emissions reductions for projects under the ACCU Scheme.
