Call for input on the "Information note: Analysis of AMS-III.F and AMS-III.Y followed by revision of the methodologies" (7 April to 21 April 2017, 24:00 GMT)

The Small-Scale Working Group (SSC WG) and the Methodologies Panel (MP) were jointly seeking inputs on the “Information note: Analysis of AMS-III.F and AMS-III.Y followed by revision of the methodologies”, as contained in Annex 3 of the SSC WG 53 meeting report.

The Board approved the revisions of the following methodologies to expand the applicability of the methodologies AMS-III.F “Avoidance of methane emissions through composting” and AMS-III.Y “Methane avoidance through separation of solids from wastewater or manure treatment systems” to include an alternative simplified but conservative approach for the calculation of emission reductions when organic bedding material is included, at its ninety-second meeting (EB 92 report, para 46) and requested the SSC WG, in consultation with the MP and the secretariat, to further explore whether additional alternative methods could be included in the above methodologies, e.g. monitoring based on livestock feed, and to propose revisions to the above methodologies if necessary at a future meeting.

Stakeholders were invited to provide their inputs on the information note in the commenting table found here.

The call for inputs from stakeholders was open from 7 April to 21 April 2017, (24:00 GMT).

The public inputs will be taken into account when preparing the draft revision to the small-scale methodology AMS-III.D “Methane recovery in animal manure management systems” to be recommended to the Board at a future meeting.
