Background Information

To facilitate the development of measures to reduce dairy and livestock emissions, SB 1383 (Lara, Chapter 395, Statutes of 2016) requires CARB to work with a broad range of stakeholders to identify and address technical, market, regulatory, and other challenges and barriers to the development of dairy methane emission reduction projects.  In response, CARB worked with the California Department of Food and Agriculture, the California Energy Commission, and the California Public Utilities Commission to convene a Dairy and Livestock Working Group.  The Working Group held a kick-off meeting on May 23, 2017, where three subgroups were formed to develop policy recommendations in the following areas:

  • Subgroup #1: Fostering markets for non-digester projects
  • Subgroup #2: Fostering markets for digester projects
  • Subgroup #3: Research needs, including enteric fermentation
