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 agrĂ­cola, el país tiene un potencial importante para reducir las emisiones de metano de sus desechos agroindustriales, tal como los del procesamiento de azĂșcar 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.

Methane Sites

The map shows completed and potential methane abatement, recovery, or use projects.

  • Use the check boxes to determine which sites to display on the map.
    • GMI sites are facilities at which methane abatement, recovery, and/or use projects have been identified or completed.
    • Non-GMI sites identify potential or existing projects that are not supported by the GMI.
  • Click a cluster of sites (i.e., numbered circles) to zoom to a region.
  • Click an individual site to view a summary.
  • For more site details click on the highlighted link.

Note: The placement of map icons is approximate, so the zoom-in feature is limited to avoid misrepresentations. Please contact us us if you have more accurate information about the location of a project or site.
