RFP Released to Develop Issue Paper on Bioreactors and In-Situ Composting

July 5, 2011

The Climate Action Reserve has released a Request for Proposals (RFP) to develop an issue paper that covers two methods of controlling or avoiding methane emissions from the decay of organic waste in landfills: bioreactors and in-situ composting. The issue paper will address each topic individually along with the possibility of combining methods into one project protocol. The issue paper will support and add to the Reserve’s initial assessments and scoping research on these topics.

Details about the RFP, application process and full scope of work are available on the Future Protocol Development webpage. Proposals must be submitted by email, fax or mail no later than 5:00 PM PDT on July 28, 2011.

Questions about the RFP and submission process may be directed to the Policy team at [email protected].
