Through the Methane to Markets Partnership (M2M), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is funding 20 projects that will help 12 countries increase their capture and use of methane from the landfill, coal, agriculture, and oil and natural gas sectors. These projects will receive more than $4.5 million in M2M grants from the EPA. “Climate change is a global issue that requires a global solution,” said EPA Administrator Stephen L. Johnson. “By leveraging $4.5 million in grants, EPA and our international partners are reducing methane emissions and realizing a clean, reliable energy source.”

Grants ranging from $90,000 to $700,000 are being awarded to help finance M2M projects in Argentina, Brazil, China, Ecuador, India, Korea, Mexico, Mongolia, Nigeria, Poland, Thailand and Ukraine. The grants will fund a wide variety of M2M activities designed to remove technical or informational barriers currently interfering with the successful capture and use of methane around the world.

Among the services provided include training, development of databases on potential project sites, feasibility studies, technology transfer and project analysis. The grants build on the earlier success of a 2007 solicitation and provide significant new funding.
