Our carbon offset projects are always also development projects for local people.
At Clean Atmos, we are continually in the process of selecting projects which meet our selection criteria and are suitable for our customer portfolio. Following are some types of projects that we are currently
We support local non-profit organizations that plant trees in the urban areas, forests and coastal regions. Deforestation accounts for 20% of global carbon emissions and planting trees sequester carbon from air transferring it to soil and trees. Planting trees also benefits the communities and local wildlife.
Projects in United States include planting trees around the Houston area in Texas and states along the lower Mississippi river. Some international projects which include reforestation efforts in regions of South America and India are covered under the Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) projects.
Wind farm generates electricity from the wind energy and reduces the consumption of fossil fuels to generate electricity, which in turn reduces carbon emissions. They also boost local economy by creating jobs, land lease and infrastructure investments while maintaining agricultural land use.
Projects in United States include supporting wind farms located in Texas and Oklahoma. International projects include supporting wind farms located in various states of India such as Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra.
Solar farm generates electricity from the sun's radiation and reduces the consumption of fossil fuels to generate electricity, which in turn reduces carbon emissions. They also benefit local economy by creating employment opportunities, local land lease and promote business and infrastructure development.
Projects in United States include supporting solar farms located in Texas and California. International projects include supporting solar farms located in various states of India such as Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Telangana and Gujarat.
Greenhouse gas, primarily methane and carbon dioxide, emitted by waste on landfills is captured and used as a fuel for generators to generate electricity. This directly prevents landfill GHG release to atmosphere and also reduces dependency on fossil fuel based electricity. It provides community benefits such as local jobs and improves the local air quality and solid waste management.
United States projects include supporting landfill gas energy developments located in Texas, New York, Virginia, Montana, Maryland and Massachusetts. International projects are mainly located in South Korea.
These projects install anaerobic digester in farms where animal and human waste is fed and methane gas emissions from them is utilized to generated energy in form of heat and electricity. The remainder of this waste is used as compost fertilizers. These projects create local jobs to build these digester and sell fertilizers and helps waste management. It provides a clean energy source in rural areas and prevents use of wood and coal.
Projects in United States include supporting biogas digester projects located in Washington, New York, Texas and Michigan. International projects include various rural farms located in Vietnam and India.
