EMISSION REDUCTIONS AS ECONOMIC TOOL Industrial CO2 Vent-Stack Capture, Utilization and Sequestration (CCUS) At one time, four natural gas processing plants in West Texas were venting over 100 million cubic feet of CO2 per day (2 million tonnes per year) into the atmosphere. In the mid-1970s, the industrial CO2 was gathered by a Pennzoil pipeline. […]

INNOVATIONS IN RECYCLING PROTOCOL DEVELOPMENT Over 30 protocols exist in the Alberta Carbon Offset System for quantifying a variety of project emission reductions; innovation is an important aspect of the system. However, a gap existed with respect to emission reductions that occur from recycling. No protocol had been designated to credit this activity. The Recycling […]
BIG SAVINGS FOR FARMING IN SOUTHERN ONTARIO The Tiessen family operates greenhouses on farms throughout southern Ontario, growing produce for Canadian and US markets. Running greenhouses year-round, especially in a cold climate, creates high heating demand, a need historically been met by fossil-fuel-fired boilers. The high cost and carbon pollution related to fossil-fuel-based boiler operations […]
GENERATE OFFSETS FROM THE USE OF BIOMASS The Tolko Industries Slave Lake OSB Mill site includes two Reciprocating Grate Combustion systems, consisting of two gasifiers that can convert approximately 40,000 bone dry tonnes per year of wood residues into renewable syngas. The produced syngas is used to displace natural gas used at the OSB mill […]
BALANCE OF HARDWOOD TIMBER MANAGEMENT & CARBON SEQUESTRATION Managed by Forest Investment Associates (FIA) and located on ~28,000 acres of mixed hardwood and conifer bog forest in northern Wisconsin, the Goodman project exemplifies how carbon offset generation and timber management can work hand-in-hand. While the Project Area continues to be managed as a working forest, […]
