Energy and Carbon

LMS dominates the market share for large-scale generation certificates (LGCs) from landfill gas. LMS was also the first company to create and trade carbon credits from landfill gas in Australia. LMS’ projects have a dual benefit - they generate base-load renewable electricity and reduce carbon emissions through the destruction of methane. Landfill gas is one of the most efficient, reliable and cost effective sources of renewable energy.

LMS commissioned its first project under the Renewable Energy Target (RET) in 2002, and today all of our renewable energy facilities are registered under the RET. LMS generated almost 50% of LGCs created from landfill gas activities in 2018, and generated over 400,000 megawatt hours of base-load renewable electricity. 

Australia’s carbon market is constantly evolving. Having been involved in every carbon scheme that has facilitated abatement of landfill gas in Australia, LMS is at the forefront of developments and a recognised leader in this field. LMS has a dedicated Commercial team who help our project partners to understand the changing opportunities and inherent risks of carbon markets with landfill gas. Our experience in negotiating the sale of these products also ensures maximum economic benefits for our partners. 

LMS' facilities abate over 3 million tonnes (CO2e) of carbon per annum. LMS is issued Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs) for the abatement achieved under the Emission Reduction Fund. LMS holds the most landfill gas projects accredited under this scheme and to date has been issued with over 50% of the total ACCUs for landfill gas methodologies.
