  • Carbon credit from composting of municipal solid waste

    The estimation of carbon credit from composting of MSW has been presented in this paper. The Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) used in formation of windrow was collected from the NERIST campus. Loss on Ignition (LOI) was measured which represents the amount of carbon and remaining ash in solid waste samples after ignition. As an absolute measure of biodegradable carbon, LOI provides an excellent ...

  • Environmental transfers against global warming: a credit-based program

    This paper investigates the impacts of institutionalising a credit-based transfer program between developing and developed countries. Such a program is expected to become an essence of the Clean Development Mechanism in the Kyoto protocol.

  • Gas flaring in developing countries – need for kyoto mechanisms or sectoral crediting mechanisms?

    Gas flaring is a phenomenon that is wasteful in terms of valuable resources as well as a contributor to global GHG emissions, and occurs mostly in developing countries. It can only be mitigated through long-term and strategic investments, involving a myriad of stakeholders. A crediting mechanism could be seen as a starting point to create incentives for both private and public parties to build ...

  • Kenya’s first carbon credits from geothermal energy pay for schools

    Last month, I drove through dust on bumpy dirt roads from Nairobi to visit the Oloirowua Primary School in Suswa, 140 kilometers northeast of the Kenya capital. The school sits on the vast savannah near Hell’s Gate National Park, an area with substantial geothermal potential. Here, KenGen, Kenya’s electric generating company, has built the ...

  • Emissions Trading (Cap and Trade)

    The Kyoto Protocol, adopted by 170 nations but not the US, established the initial carbon trading market. The goal of an emissions trading plan is to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. Typically, a government agency sets an annual limit (cap) on the amount of emissions generated. Companies that emit greenhouse gases are given credits or allowances which represent the right to emit a ...
