Composting can strongly contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Methane is a strong greenhouse gas which is emitted when organic material rots in the absence of oxygen. In case enough oxygen is supplied – like in a controlled microbial composting process – methane will not be formed, reducing the greenhouse gas emissions with 0.1 -1.8 tons of CO2 equivalence per ton of compost.
Composting projects like the ones developed by Soil & More International generate Carbon Credits and the sales of these credits form an additional revenue stream making the composting project economically feasible. The projects follow UNFCCC emission reduction standards and the credits are verified by TÜV Nord.
Do you want to have more information about how composting contributes to the reduction of greenhouse gases or how carbon credits can be generated?
Would you like to have support with a feasibility check for a potential new composting based emission reduction project?
