Want to develop carbon credits project but confused with the complex structure of the respective mechanism then follow these instruction; Stage 1: Feasibility Study Evaluate the technologies such as Renewable energy, energy efficiency, waste management, forestry, etc in the proposed projects activity to establish if it meets the criteria for GHG emission reduction or sink […]

Carbon Credits projects under the Waste Heat Recovery

April 12, 2011 by

Waste heat is the heat that is generated along with fuel combustion and remain unutilized even though it could still be reused for some useful and economic purpose. Simply put, it is thermal energy which is most likely to go ‘waste’. The essential quality of heat depends on the ability to extract value out of […]

Carbon Credits potential of projects with Energy efficiency measures

Driven by the growing concern about the climate change and business risks and opportunities created by it, many industrial sectors are searching for the less GHG intensive methods for their operations. There are lot of opportunities in green house gas reductions that create quantifiable (and trade-able) carbon credits, under mechanisms such as Clean Development Mechanism […]

Renewable energy sector under the GHG emission reduction standards

Non-conventional energy sources such as wind, solar, hydropower result in zero emission of green house gases and are therefore eligible to earn carbon credits as they displace GHG intensive fossil fuel derived electricity. There are therefore a number of GHG mitigation opportunities for the RE developers. Renewable Energy development also contributes to the sustainable development […]

Carbon credits for your projects: A quick guide to CDM

March 29, 2011 by

Clean Development Mechanism is the flexible mechanism helps developed countries reduce their green house gas emission using projects and activities outside their geographical boundaries. Reducing emissions within their own boundaries is costlier for developed countries as compared to doing the same in developing countries. CDM allows a developed country (Country which is included in Annex 1 […]

Carbon credits potential of solid waste management industry

March 8, 2011 by

Solid waste management practices release high quantities of green house gases in the atmosphere. This sector therefore creates significant opportunities for carbon mitigation, which could eventually become tradable carbon credits. Following procedures can be used to reduce/avoid GHG emissions from the waste materials. 1)     Avoidance and utilization of methane from the landfill side: Methane (CH4) […]
