The Arbor Day Foundation - Reforestation in Mississippi River Valley, USA: The Arbor Day's carbon-centric approach expedites tree growth for hardwoods, accelerates carbon sequestration; maximizes the use of the reforestation site (more trees per acre); improves tree quality; promotes higher survivability; provides rapid growth of biomass and pulp tonnage; and establishes quality wildlife habitats quickly for both game and non-game species in the Mississippi River Valley.
Greater New Bedford - Landfill Gas Capture , United States: The Greater New Bedford on-site generating facility came online in October 2005. The collection system is used to provide landfill gas to the generating facility where landfill gas is converted to electrical power via combustion in four Caterpillar 3516 gas engine generator sets. The gas collectionsystem is located outside of the building that houses the power facility. The landfill gas passes through a knock-out tank to remove the condensate, passes through a blower, a gas cooler, a gas filter and coalescing filter, and then moves into the building for further processing.
Cikel Amazon Project – REDD APD Reforestation, Brazil: The Cikel Brazilian Amazon REDD APD Project aims to avoid emissions from planned deforestation on a property in Paragominas Municipality, Para state, Brazil. The main activity of the CIKEL Brazilian Amazon REDD APD Project is the cancelation of the planned deforestation activities and decision to instead conserve the forest area and continue limited forest management activities in the area under Forest Stewardship Council® Certification (FSC®) with Low Impact Logging (SFMLIL) practices.
Mt. Carberry Project – Landfill Gas Capture, United States: The Landfill is located in the Unincorporated Township of Success, N.H. and consists of approximately 67 acres of developed landfill with an additional 43 acres which is undeveloped. The Landfill is projected to be operational through the year 2048 at the maximum fill rate per year (305,500 cubic yards per year) The site is approximately two miles east of Berlin, N.H. The landfill gas collection and destruction system was voluntarily installed in the Summer of 2007 and became operational in October 2007.
Bundled wind power project by KMSPL, Bangalore, India: The project has been undertaken to harness the available wind power potential. The project has established 49 number of WTG aggregating to a total installed capacity of 38.275 MW. The project will generate approximately 89.92 million units of electricity per annum, which will be entirely sold to the State Electricity Boards or wheeled for captive consumption. The project will help in greenhouse gas emission reduction by using renewable energy resource for generating power which otherwise would have been generated using non- renewable, carbon intensive fuel common in the grid. The project is a green field project aimed at utilising wind energy to produce power. The implementation of project will achieve approximately 83,350 tCO2e emission reduction per annum by replacing grid based electricity which is predominantly generated by fossil fuel based thermal power plant in Southern Grid.
Ecomapua Amazon REDD Project – Ilha de Marajo, Brazil: The Ecomapuá Amazon REDD Project is located on Marajó Island, Pará State, in Brazil’s Eastern Amazon region. The Marajó várzea is a critically valuable ecosystem, adding to the importance of the present project. The primary objective of the project is to avoid the unplanned deforestation (AUD) of an 86,269.84ha area within a private property owned by Ecomapuá Conservação Ltda. The present project will achieve predicted net reductions of 4,253.14ha of deforestation, and 1,432,278 tCO2e emissions over the 30 year project lifetime (01/01/2003 – 31/12/2032). Furthermore, a proportion of the carbon credits generated will be dedicated to improving social and environmental conditions for local communities. Marajó Island is classified as “extremely high” priority for preservation by the Brazilian Environment Ministry (“MMA”), consequently the Ecomapuá Amazon REDD Project contributes to National conservation goals and encourages further conservation efforts in and around this critical region.
Bluff Road Project – Landfill Gas Capture, United States: The Bluff Road Landfill is owned and operated by the City of Lincoln, NE. The permitted disposal area is approximately 171 acres. The Project includes the initial installation of 54 vertical landfill gas extraction wells, collection system piping, blower/flare station, and valves, pumps, and meters for the purpose of capturing and destroying methane. Additional landfill gas extraction wells and collection system piping will be installed in phases as the landfill expands vertically and horizontally.
Granger Decatur Project - Landfill Gas Capture, United States: The Morgan County Regional Landfill in Alabama is a 270 acre sanitary MSW landfill which opened in 1981. The Decatur Landfill recently collaborated with Granger Energy to install a gas collection system. The processed LFG is sent to a nearby steel plant via a short pipeline and unused gas is flared.
