Tell us how you’re reducing methane emissions

Dominican Republic Dominican Republic flag

The Dominican Republic has opportunities for methane capture and use projects in the areas of agriculture and municipal solid waste. From an agriculture perspective, the country has significant methane emission reduction potential from its agro-industrial waste, such as sugar and fruit processing, as well as manure waste management (i.e., swine and dairy operations). In the municipal solid waste sector, the Dominican Republic welcomes opportunities for establishing standards and constructing engineered landfills with methane collection systems.

La República Dominicana ofrece oportunidades para establecer proyectos de captura y uso del gas metano emanante de la agricultura y los rellenos sanitarios. Desde el punto de vista agrícola, el país tiene un potencial importante para reducir las emisiones de metano de sus desechos agroindustriales, tal como los del procesamiento de azúcar y frutas, así como del manejo del estiércol (por ejemplo, de operaciones porcinas y lecheras). En el sector de los rellenos sanitarios, la República Dominicana promueve oportunidades para establecer normas y construir rellenos sanitarios equipados con sistemas de recolección de metano.
