J.R. Simplot Methane Capture and Destruction Project

Location: Washington

Offset standard: Verified Carbon Standard

Project type: Methane Capture and Destruction

Region: West

International food and agribusiness leader, the J. R. Simplot Company, and Bluesource collaborated to create a carbon reduction project at Simplot’s Moses Lake, Washington potato processing plant. The plant incorporates state-of-the-art processing technology and the company wanted its wastewater management to be treated as an equally valuable part of the system. A new digester at the facility, captures and flares methane that was previously released into the atmosphere from an open anaerobic lagoon. Later, Simplot constructed a one-mile biogas pipeline to utilize the methane at the processing facility. Bluesource is undertaking a renewal application with the Verified Carbon Standard, reconfirming additionality and credit generation through 2027.

Klawock Heenya Project

Location: Alaska

Offset standard: American Carbon Registry

Project type: Improved Forest Management

Region: West

The Klawock Heenya Project protects 8,600 acres of forest on Prince of Wales Island in Alaska—1,000 acres of which is old-growth forest, home to centuries-old trees and an abundance of biodiversity. The forests of Klawock Heenya have been utilized for centuries for subsistence uses such as firewood, housing materials, and canoe logs. From 1980 to 2015, nearly all the commercially operable timber on Klawock Heenya lands was harvested, narrowly preserving the areas of old growth that remain. Since then, natural regeneration has resulted in thriving second growth forests, with trees reaching up to twelve feet in diameter. The registration and management of this forest carbon project helps ensure the long-term sustainable governance, protecting and preserving the health and age of the forest.

HFC Reduction

Location: Texas

Offset standard: American Carbon Registry

Project type: Industrial Process Emissions Reduction

Region: Central

All polyurethane foam requires the use of blowing agents in its manufacture and application. These agents contain chemicals that contribute to global warming by releasing greenhouse gases during manufacture, use, and end-of-life destruction. The EPA assumes that, eventually, all the blowing agent contained in foam is released into the atmosphere. These projects reduce industrial emissions associated with spray foam insulation by replacing a high-emission blowing agent with an innovative, low-emission agent. The new agent, called Solstice, seamlessly replaces HFC 245-a. This project is a new and creative method to mitigate the climate impact of blown foam applications. The Solstice blowing agent has a 99% lower global warming potential than earlier agents. There are no necessary equipment upgrades for the end users and Solstice provides the same thermal insulating factor as the original blowing agent.

Ball State University Campus-Wide Clean Energy and Efficiency Project

Location: Indiana

Offset standard: Verified Carbon Standard

Project type: Clean Energy and Energy Efficiency

Region: Central

This project involves the implementation of a district-scale geothermal (closed-loop, ground-source) heat pump chiller heating and cooling system. This project allows the University to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels for heating and cooling and allowed for a seven-fold increase in efficiency over the school’s older coal-fired boilers and chilled water equipment. The school has also installed energy efficiency measures and weatherization improvements as a part of this project.

Spartanburg County Landfill Gas Combustion Project

Location: South Carolina

Offset standard: Verified Carbon Standard

Project type: Landfill Gas Combustion

Region: Southeast

The Spartanburg County project consists of a landfill gas collection system and three different destruction devices to combust the collected gas. The county partnered with Milliken Dewey Chemical Plant and Lockhart Power to utilize landfill gas from the Wellford Landfill in Spartanburg County, South Carolina. The result is a one-of-a-kind multi-beneficial use project. The captured gas is piped 6.5 miles to the Milliken plant and is then used to replace natural gas in the boilers. The remaining gas goes through a treatment system and into a Caterpillar 3520C (1.6 MW) electricity generator engine or to a flare if the genset is down for repairs.

Pocosin Lakes Forest Conservation Project

Location: North Carolina

Offset standard: Climate Action Reserve

Project type: Avoided Forest Conversion

Region: Southeast

Pocosin Lakes Forest Conservation Project is comprised of 1,349 acres of forested land in Tyrrell County, North Carolina. The property has been placed under a conservation easement with the USDA to ensure that the natural land will not be disturbed by human development such as burning, digging, plowing, draining, or planting a crop. In the absence of this protection, the forest would have been harvested, burned on-site, and converted to agricultural land for wheat or corn crop production, similar to neighboring properties. Photography, hiking, and bird viewing are encouraged on the property.
