Denton Landfill Gas Project
The Denton Landfill Gas project consists of a 1.6 MW Caterpillar 3520 generator which uses methane gas from the Denton Landfill to generate power while a backup candlestick flare located on the landfill property combusts landfill gas when the generator is at capacity.
Project Sites: Denton, TX, USA
Annual GHG Emissions Reduction: 52,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide— equivalent per year over the next 10 years.
Corinth Coal Mine Methane Facility
The Corinth Coal Mine Methane project consists of the installation and operation of methane capture system in an abandoned coal mine in rural Illinois. This system collects and destroys methane, a potent greenhouse gas that would have otherwise escaped into the atmosphere.
Project Sites: Franklin County, IL, USA
Annual GHG Emissions Reduction: Approximately 180,000 metric tons CO2e/year.
China Muling Wind Farm
The Muling Wind Farm project site has abundant wind resources. Muling will install 70 wind turbines for a total output of 130,000 MWh.
Project Sites: Heilongjiang Province, China
Annual GHG Emissions Reduction: approximately 133,068 metric tons CO2e/year. Verified according to the CDM ACM0002 methodology.
China VCS Wind Farm
The Putian Shicheng Wind Farm Project involves the installation of 20 wind turbines with unit capacity of 2,000 kW each, and totals in installation capacity of 40MW. The project will help stimulate the growth of the wind power industry in China, improving air quality and creating local employment opportunities.
Project Sites: Fujian Province, China
Annual GHG Emissions Reduction: 104,794 mtCO2e
Verification: VERs will be verified using CDM ACM0002 methodology.
Australian Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Project
The Australian Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Project involves reforestation of degraded agricultural properties in the mid-west region of Western Australia. Spanning 32,457 acres, this project recreates a healthy, functioning landscape that preserves native animals and plants on the brink of extinction.
Project Sites: Mid-West Region of Western Australia
Annual GHG Emissions Reduction: 1.257M tonnes of CO2e sequestered carbon
Verification: Gold Standard LUF; the first Australian project to be certified by The Gold Standard- internationally recognized premium quality carbon credits. Also 3rd party validated by the Rainforest Alliance.
Rather than settling for standard practice which allows gas to slowly release into the atmosphere, McKinney Landfill operates on a practice that reduces pollution, protects groundwater and turns a profit. Today, garbage at the landfill is slowly breaking down under a cover. A series of wells are drilled into the cover to release the gas in a piping system. The gas is then funneled to a generator and burned to make electricity. For every metric ton of carbon not released McKinney can sell one Carbon Offset.
Project Site: Collin County, Texas
Annual GHG Emissions Reduction: 65,000 tons of CO2 each year
Verification: The Climate Action Reserve's Landfill Project Protocol
