The installation of methane oxidation beds at six landfills (Barriere, Clearwater, Chase, Heffley Creek, Logan Lake and Lower Nicola) in the Thompson-Nicola Regional District is a key component in helping the TNRD acheive Carbon Neutrality. Methane oxidation can lead to significant removal of landfill methane, and thus has the potential to earn greenhouse-gas credits. The TNRD has measured and reported carbon emissions to the Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program since 2010 and has taken measures to reduce corporate emissions. The TNRD achieved Carbon Neutrality for the years 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2018.
