Source Separated Organic Waste Method now approved

The Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative – Source Separated Organic Waste) Methodology Determination 2016 was made on 4 February 2016.

The method provides an incentive for business, local government and charity organisations to divert organic waste from landfill. Carbon credits can be earned by diverting waste such as food, textiles, garden waste, wood waste, sludge, nappies, rubber and leather.

With the next Emissions Reduction Fund auction to be held from 27–28 April, there is still time to register a project with the Clean Energy Regulator under this method and claim credits for your abatement effort. Projects should be registered by 9 March and must be:

  • new (you must have 24 months of data showing waste was going to landfill);
  • an expansion to existing activities;
  • aggregated projects involving multiple activities; or
  • the diversion of food waste by charities.

If you are thinking of doing any of these projects within the next few years, MRA Consulting recommends that you register a project and bid at the next auction. The company can offer assistance navigating the project registration and auction participation process.

For further information on the types of projects that can receive funding and the participation process, contact Jordon Wong or Julien Gastaldi.
