Carbon Credits

Independent application for Carbon Credits for any proposed Waste to Energy Facility could attract substantial funds – and could make each location almost self-funding through Bank Guarantees.

The burning of fossil fuels is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions, for many industries which rely on fossil fuels (coal, electricity derived from coal, natural gas and oil).

The major GHG’s emitted by these industries are carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, hydro fluorocarbons (HFCs), etc., all of which increase the atmosphere's ability to trap infrared energy and thus affect the climate.

The concept of carbon credits came into existence as a result of increasing awareness of the need for controlling emissions.

What Are Carbon Credits?

A carbon credit is a generic term for any tradable certificate or permit representing the right to emit one tonne of carbon dioxide or the mass of another greenhouse gas with a carbon dioxide equivalent equivalent to one tonne of carbon dioxide.

Carbon credits and carbon markets are a component of national and international attempts to mitigate the growth in concentrations of greenhouse gases (GHGs).

The goal is to allow market mechanisms to drive industrial and commercial processes in the direction of low emissions or less carbon intensive approaches than those used when there is no cost to emitting carbon dioxide and other GHGs into the atmosphere. Since GHG mitigation projects generate credits, this approach can be used to finance carbon reduction schemes between trading partners and around the world.

It is predicted that Carbon will be the world's biggest commodity market, and it could become the world's biggest market overall.

a framework for rewarding people or companies meet standards exclusively recognized as "green."

  • Reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
  • By the displacement of the electricity generated from fossil fuel-fired plants connected to the national grid.
  • By avoidance of methane generation in landfill by utilizing the MSW waste for power generation.
