Pacific Environment Limited was commissioned by the Department of Environment to investigate the potential of an emissions reduction fund methodology for phytocaps.

The result was the identification of technical limitations that need to be resolved. These include:

  • Quantifying the rate of oxidation of methane through a phytocap; and
  • Quantify the volume of methane produced by the landfill.

The Pacific Environment team along with reputed international experts are working towards resolving these limitations. The team are also continuing to liaise with the Department of Environment to stay updated on all developments that may affect the economic benefit of an approved methodology.
