Carbon Credits Projects for GHG (Green House Gas) Mitigation
Today we all are witnessing the ills of global warming viz. temperature rise, massive floods, rise in the frequency of cyclones and hurricanes, relocation of precipitation, etc. To counter the phenomenon of global warming some positive steps were taken in Kyoto Protocol in 1990s under the direct supervision of UN. One of the steps was lucrative incentive to developing nations like India to curtail the pollution at their end, the main culprit for global warming. The program is termed as Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). In this programme financial assistance is given from developed countries to the client for setting up pollution control facility at their plant site upon successful registration of the project at UN.
Anaerobic digestion of wastewater contributes to release of biogas which is essentially a mixture of methane and carbon dioxide. Methane is one the six green house gases (GHG) will global warming potential (GBP) of 21. This fact makes methane 21 folds more harmful than carbon dioxide. By capturing and combusting this methane could result in lowering the pollution that might have caused in its free release. All the industries having to deal with high strength wastewater viz. Distillery, Chemicals, Tanneries, etc. are the promising candidates for such projects. Carbon credits i.e. CDM benefits can also be availed for setting up environment friendly boiler, power generation at site from biogas, replacement of non-renewable energy source like coal, diesel, furnace oil, LDO, etc.
Lars with its strategic partners M/s Biogas Technology Ltd. based at UK offer services to avail CDM benefits to their clients with no extra cost. All documents, case studies, reports are made by us at our cost. Upon successful execution of the CDM project we can share the revenues at mutually agreeable terms with our esteemed client.
- Certified Emissions Reductions (CER)
For the project of Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) run and monitored by United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC). The beneficiaries of this project are companies/entities from developing countries like India.
- Verified Emissions Reductions (VER)
For voluntary international carbon market and is purely two party process between developing and developed countries.
At Lars, we provide complete packaged solution for ETP and carbon credits for our customers under one roof. We are the pioneers in the field of VER for existing and as well as under execution anaerobic reactor. We have tied up with our UK based associates M/s Biogas Technology Limited and presently have bagged two orders from our esteemed clients. Presently we are working out the benefit analysis for our clients old as well as new. If you feel you can help to reduce pollution and claim carbon credits please do write to us!!
