VOSS Sponsored Projects
In pursuit of becoming a carbon neutral company, VOSS has invested in two high-quality carbon offset projects in the U.S. and China. These projects provided authentic, permanent, and third party verified emissions reductions.
VOSS has committed to purchasing 30,000 tonnes of carbon offsets from these projects to account for the full footprint.
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 Location: Denton, TX, USA
Estimated Annual Emission Reductions:
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.
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 Site: Heilongjiang Province, China
Annual GHG Emissions Reduction: approximately 133,068 metric tons CO2e/year.
Verified according to the CDM ACM0002 methodology.
