CAPCOA Greenhouse Gas Exchange – Compost Additions to Grazed Grasslands

On June 9, 2015 the Tehama County Board of Supervisor’s approved a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Tehama County Air Pollution Control District (TCAPCD) and Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) to indirectly participate in the CAPCOA Greenhouse Gas Reduction Exchange. This exchange is a completely voluntary program. The California Air Pollution Control Officers Association (CAPCOA), representing California's 35 local air districts, has launched the CAPCOA Greenhouse Gas Reduction Exchange. The Exchange provides a reliable, low-cost, secure platform to encourage locally generated, high quality GHG emission reduction credits that can be used to meet CEQA or other compliance requirements. Studies have shown that a one-time application of compost to grazed grasslands can have lasting co-benefits including locally-improved air quality, accelerated plant growth, and increased water-hold capacity in grasslands.
