Unlike many offset providers co2balance manage their own projects on the ground. Directly employing local, talented people to work within our communities. The success of our projects is determined, in part, by the incredible work done by our Carbon Zero staff on the ground. These field officers are the people that are working tirelessly within the communities to ensure that our projects are implemented to the highest possible standards. Our field officers, working behind the scenes on project implementation, manage to quietly overcome a wide range of obstacles, and successfully ensure that the community gains the maximum benefits from our energy efficient cook stoves, throughout the life of the project.,

VENTUS-X-UMB field test in Norway - Case Study
In a project, launched in January 2016, the Norwegian airport systems integrator Avinor has tested a new VENTUS-UMB model with an enhanced heating power. Two of the new models have run in the field, installed at the most extreme sites in Norway, where they are delivering wind data reliably ever since their installation. One is placed at the top of Kjølen mountain, close to Tromsø Airport, at a height of 2,600ft. Here, the average winter temperature is -5°C. The second one VENTUS-X is installed...
KNMI - Field test of the Lufft / Jenoptik SHM30 laser snow depth sensor - Case Study
Field test report of the Lufft / Jenoptik SHM30 laser snow depth sensor, conducted by Netherlands weather service KNMI - R&D Information and Observation Technology - De Bilt, from December 2011 - June 2011.
Biofiltration field study for cold Fe(II)- and Mn(II)-rich groundwater: accelerated Mn(II) removal ...
Removal of Mn(II) from Fe(II)- and Mn(II)-rich groundwater in cold regions is challenging, due to slow Mn(II) removal kinetics below 15 °C. This study demonstrated onset, acclimation, and acceleration of Mn(II) removal in a two-stage pilot-scale biofilter (Fe and Mn filters) at varying low on-site temperatures (8–14.8 °C). Mn(II) removal commenced at 8 °C in the Mn filter after Fe(II) removal. A shift in redox-pH conditions favored biological Mn(II) removal and Mn(II)-oxidizing bacteria increased. The Mn filter...
Field Testing Protocol For Compostable Packaging
Compostable product disintegration trials conducted in British Columbia help lay groundwork for open source, field testing protocol. Compostable packaging holds great promise to aid in diverting food waste from landfill. However, even when certified compostable, the products disintegrate differently across facility types. A growing number of composting facilities see potential for accepting food waste, and the compostable products which often come with it, but the question becomes — how can operators know...
