AIM Composting at Hamilton’s Central Facility
Carbon Credit Focus: Aerobic Composting

aimc

The project achieves GHG emission reductions by transforming organic residue as derived from municipally generated source separated household waste into compost. This waste diversion projects avoids a large quantity of organic residues from being buried in a landfill where it would likely undergo anaerobic decomposition hence generating methane.

Toronto District School Board (TDSB) Energy Efficiency
Carbon Credit Focus: Energy Efficiency

toronto_district_school_board_logo-svg

The TDSB project achieves GHG emissions through energy efficiency upgrades within the largest school board in Canada. These upgrades include building automation systems (BAS) as well as lighting retro-fits in over 200 schools and buildings throughout Toronto. These projects began in 2004 and continue to be implemented on an on going basis.

C&B Farms Biomass Heating Project
C
arbon Credit Focus: Biomass to Energy

cbfarmsbiomass

C&B Farms currently utilizes biomass from wood chips to heat their commercial greenhouses, thereby diverting them from a municipal landfill, in replacement of burning fossil fuels.

Pyramid Farms Biomass Heating Project
Carbon Credit Focus:
Biomass to Energy

pyramid-farm

Pyramid Farms currently utilizes biomass from wood chips to heat their commercial greenhouses, thereby diverting them from a municipal landfill, in replacement of burning fossil fuels.

Biomass-to-Energy Offset Project Pool (Woodside and Kralt)
Carbon Credit Focus: Biomass to Energy

biomass-to-energy-offset

Two greenhouse operators use waste biomass as a feedstock to heat their greenhouse operations, thus replacing fossil fuel consumption and diverting biomass from landfills. This has the impact of reducing emission not only from fossil fuel combustion but also from methane creation in landfills.

Refrigerant Management Canada Ozone Depleting Substance Destruction Project
Carbon Credit Focus: ODS Destruction

refrigement-management

Refrigerant Management Canada (RMC) administers a voluntary program to fund and facilitate the collection and destruction of surplus ozone depleting substances (ODS) from stationary refrigeration and air conditioning sources in Canada and transfers them to destruction facilities.

Merom Farms Biomass Project
Carbon Credit Focus: Biomass to Energy

merom-farms

The Project achieves GHG emission reductions by switching from using natural gas, a fossil fuel, to heat the greenhouses to using biomass, a less GHG intensive fuel source. The biomass source is waste wood that would have been stockpiled indefinitely if the Project did not exist; therefore the project also achieves emission reductions by diverting waste from stockpile.

Net Zero Composting
Carbon Credit Focus: Composting

net-zero

The Net Zero Waste Composting Project’s purpose is to create valuable compost products for organic farmers, landscapers and the public from the composting of residential, commercial and agricultural organic waste. GHG reductions are achieved through the diversion of waste from landfill. The Project transforms waste into compost, thereby reducing emissions of methane, a potent GHG that would have been generated in landfills through anaerobic decomposition.

Coastal Composting
Carbon Credit Focus: Composting

coastal-composting

The Coast Environmental Composting Project’s purpose is to create valuable compost products for landscapers, local golf courses and the public from the composting of bio-solids and residential organic waste. GHG reductions are achieved through the diversion of waste from landfill. The Project transforms waste into compost, thereby reducing emissions of methane, a potent GHG that
would have been generated at landfills through anaerobic decomposition.
