Making Climate Impact in Florida
Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a greenhouse gas (GHG) that contributes to global warming. It is 265 times more effective at trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide (CO2) and is often overlooked. The Phlogiston Phase I Project captures and destroys excess N2O emissions through a new absorption column at the Ascend Performance Materials’ adipic acid plant in Cantonment, FL. This is the largest voluntary N2O abatement project in North America and results in a significant reduction of N2O emissions that otherwise would have been released into the atmosphere. The project is third-party verified and registered through the Climate Action Reserve (CAR) Registry.
Powering Turkey With Renewable Energy
The Turkish power grid depends largely on fossil fuels to provide energy to the country. Demand for electricity in Turkey is growing rapidly, and thus greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are also projected to increase. The Gunder Hydro Power Project is a 28.22 MW hydropower plant that channels water from the Gunder Creek to produce electricity. Located in the Karaman Province of Turkey, the project generates clean, renewable power that can be fed into the national grid to displace fossil-fuel-based power. As a result, the hydro project reduces a significant amount of carbon dioxide and other pollutants from power generation that would otherwise have been emitted into the atmosphere. This project also has co-benefits, such as creating local employment opportunities and helping Turkey to stimulate and commercialize the grid-connected to renewable energy technologies and markets. The project is third-party verified and registered through the Verified Carbon Standard.
Improving Local Energy Through Wind Power
China is covered by seven independent grids, including the Northwest China Power Grid (NWPG). The NWPG is dominated by carbon-intensive thermal power plants, which emit a significant amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) into the atmosphere. Located in the Gansu Province of China, The Guazhou Beidaqiao Wind Farm Project works to displace coal-fired power with wind-driven power to meet the ever-increasing demand in the NWPG. With 67 turbines and 134 wind turbine generators, this project supplies the NWPG with clean, zero-emissions renewable electricity. This greatly reduces the amount of GHG being emitted into the atmosphere and decreases other pollutant emissions from fossil-fuel-fired power plants. The wind farm also contributes to the sustainable development of the local community and country by preserving water resources, improving local energy infrastructure, and providing increased income through local job opportunities. The project is third-party verified and registered through the Verified Carbon Standard.
Utilizing Mulberry and Sugarcane Leaf for Energy
Biomass residues are often dumped or left to decay under mainly aerobic conditions or burnt in an uncontrolled way. The Liucheng Biomass Power Project utilizes biomass residues from mulberry leaf and sugarcane leaf discarded by local farmers to generate power. The biomass power plant supplies electricity to the Guangxi grid and the South China Power Grid (SCPG) and displaces power from traditional fossil-fuel-fired power plants. The project significantly reduces air pollutants and GHG emissions while increasing the local power supply. Other co-benefits include creating local job opportunities, protecting the environment by using biomass residues effectively, and safely controlling biomass burning. The project is third-party verified and registered through the Verified Carbon Standard.
