    The objective of this NAMA is to catalyse the instalation of the first facilities for industrial and commercial organic waste management in Chile (it does not include household organic waste).

    Activities: (2013 - 2023)
    The current activities are part of the NAMA:

    • Develop national norms to regulate organic waste management;
    • Install organic waste treatment plants;
    • Co-finance feasibility studies;
    • Develop a system for the monitoring, reporting and verification of the emissions reductions resulting from plant instalations that result from this NAMA.

    Impact and MRV

    No Data Available.png
    Cumulative GHG reductions: 12 MtCO2e
    Mitigative capacity:

    No information has been provided on mitigative capacity


    Social: Improve relationship between businesses and communities through improved waste management

    Urban development

    Economic: Job creation associated with the new waste management installations.
    Environmental: Decrease impact on environment through closure of waste dumps.

    Reduction in emissions of particulate matter that will result from fewer miles traveled by industries to dispose of their waste.

    MRV Framework:

    Annual project-level reporting on the following indicators is required:

    - Efficiency of biogas generation per ton of waste treated.

    - Production of energy per ton of waste.

    - Critical environmental episodes associated with the projects, if any.

    - Number of jobs created (directly and indirectly) by the projects.
