Tree New Mexico - Barales Neighborhood Planting Tree NM focuses on local green-scape efforts such as its planting initiatives in the Barales neighborhood. The Barales neighborhood tree planting project consists of native tree plantings to beautify the community.
Tree New Mexico - Bosque Tree Planting Another project by Tree New Mexico and Open Space, is the planting of shrubs and trees to add an entire new ecosystem to the area along the Bosque near the Rio Grande River.
The Arbor Day Foundation - Santa Fe National Forest The Arbor Day focuses on tree planting and conservation in the Santa Fe National Forest. Here, you can find the headwaters of Pecos, Jemez, and Gallinas Rivers; mountain streams; lakes; and trout fishing. Travel into Pecos, San Pedro Parks, Chama, and Dome Wildernesses via wilderness pack trips, saddle, or on 1,000 miles of hiking trails.
The Arbor Day Foundation - Reforestation in Mississippi River Valley, USA The Arbor Day's carbon-centric approach expedites tree growth for hardwoods, accelerates carbon sequestration; maximizes the use of the reforestation site (more trees per acre); improves tree quality; promotes higher survivability; provides rapid growth of biomass and pulp tonnage; and establishes quality wildlife habitats quickly for both game and non-game species in the Mississippi River Valley.
Cikel Brazilian Amazon REDD APD Project Cikel, Brazil The CIKEL Brazilian Amazon REDD APD Project aims to avoid emissions from planned deforestation on a property in Paragominas Municipality, Para state, Brazil. The main activity of the CIKEL Brazilian Amazon REDD APD Project is the cancellation of the planned deforestation activities and decision to instead conserve the forest area and continue limited forest management activities in the area under Forest Stewardship Council® Certification (FSC®) with Low Impact Logging (SFMLIL) practices.
Wind Power Project in Tamilnadu, India The Afognak Forest Carbon Project covers 3,326.5 ha (8,219.7 acres) of adjacent or proximal parcels located on the North coast (Perenosa Bay/Delphin Bay area) of Afognak Island, Alaska. In a series of transactions outlined in Section 7, the American Land Conservancy (ALC) and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF) acquired the Afognak Carbon project properties and related timber rights from the privately owned Alaskan Native Corporations (Afognak Joint Venture, Shuyak, Inc., and Uganik Natives, Inc.) over the period of 2005-2009, with the objective of conserving the land in perpetuity. As part of these transactions, ALC/RMEF specifically retained the carbon legal title rights and right of use for the purpose of a carbon emissions reduction project; attached a permanent federal conservation easement to ensure perpetual conservation management; and transferred the remaining surface title rights to the State of Alaska.
INDIA WIND BUNDLED WIND POWER PROJECT Tamil Nadu, Karnataka States, India The project activity is a grouped Wind power project consisting of installations and operation of 49 wind turbine generators by 29 individual Project participants from various industries in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka states. The intent of the Project Activity is to meet the power requirements of small and medium scale industries using the electricity generated from the Wind Turbines and thus reduce GHG emission and promote sustainable development. The project is a unique effort to bring together a number of investors with small power requirements to invest into wind turbines. In the absence of the project activity, the equivalent amount of electricity would have been generated by the power plants connected with the southern grid, which is predominantly based on fossil fuel. The project will help in the reduction of GHG by using alternative renewable energy resource for generating power. This would otherwise have been generated using non-renewable sources that are carbon intensive commonly found in the grid. This is a green field project aimed at utilizing wind energy to produce power. The implementation of the project will achieve approximately 83,350tCO2e emission reduction per annum by replacing grid based electricity which is predominately generated by fossil fuel burnt in thermal plant along the Southern Grid. The project has established 49 Wind Turbines aggregating to a total installed capacity of 38.275 MW and will generated approximately 89.92 million units of electricity per annum.
Greater New Bedford Landfill Gas Capture MA, USA
The Greater New Bedford on-site generating facility came online in October 2005. The collection system is used to provide landfill gas to the generating facility where landfill gas is converted to electrical power via combustion in four Caterpillar 3516 gas engine generator sets. The gas collection
system is located outside of the building that houses the power facility. The landfill gas passes through a knock-out tank to remove the condensate, passes through a blower, a gas cooler, a gas filter and coalescing filter, and then moves into the building for further processing.
Bos Dairy Farm Methane Capture, CA, USA The Bos Dairy farm is a methane reduction project that has developed an anaerobic manure management system through removal of solids from manure slurry stream.
Torlar 14.834 MWe Hydroelectric Power Plant, Kahramanmaras, Turkey Torlar 14.834 MWe Regulator and Hydroelectric power plant project is a new grid-connected renewable energy generation project built on Korsulu Creek within the borders of Karbasan Village district in Kahramanmara, in the eastern Mediterranean part of Turkey.
Dempsey Ridge Wind Project, OK, USA The Dempsey Ridge 132 MW wind power project consists of the installation of 66 Gamesa G90 2.0MW turbines on approximately 7,500 acres of agricultural and grazing land. The facility will deliver power into the Southwest Power Pool (SPP) Regional Transmission Organization (RTO) with interconnection at the AEP West Sweetwater 230kV substation. The project's intent is to generate electricity from renewable sources and therefore to displace electricity that otherwise would have been procured from the grid in the absence of the Dempsey Ridge wind farm.
