The project activity helps in estimation of carbon stock present in mangrove forest of Kakinada, East Godavari, Andhra Pradesh.

Carbon Stock Estimation:

A large fraction of the mangroves in India was destroyed due to aquaculture and agriculture expansion.

The project activity was initiated to find out the overall carbon present in Kakinada mangrove area. The study was conducted in Kakinada mangrove forest and the samples were collected from Coringa wildlife sanctuary. The study area map was carried out with the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) values of Kakinada forest which shows the high degradation of mangrove in the southeast area on the Kakinada bay and adjacent with a marshy wetland situated at 16.9162N and 82.2027E, 17.0373N and 82.2917E.with the center of 16.9890N and 82.2774E.

The area was mapped with the GIS and the study research was carried out with the help of a mobile application. The study estimated the above level biomass and below level biomass and calculated the total carbon stock present in the Coringa Wildlife Sanctuary.

The project also involved the assessment of livelihood opportunities for fishermen community.

Paddy fields are the most dominant anthropogenic sources of methane to the atmosphere (5-20% of the total emission from all anthropogenic sources).

Anaerobic decomposition of organic material in flooded rice fields produces methane, which escapes to the atmosphere primarily by transport through the rice plants.

Water Management and Reduction in CH4 emissions:

Core CarbonX (CCX) is working together with farmers in reducing the methane emissions from Paddy fields. CCX has already implemented a project on 1800 acres of land in the Nalgonda district in Telangana State, India.

The project promotes the Alternate Wetting and Drying (AWD) method that helps water management in the rice field, thereby, increasing the yield of the paddy and reducing methane emissions. In addition, this project benefits the farmers by supporting additional revenue from the carbon market for sustainable rice cultivation.

We are working with various state governments, institutions, NGOs and farmers. Our aim is to implement the AWD method in paddy fields totalling 1 million hectares by 2025.

The Circular economy is a part of the solution to deliver on the global environmental and social agenda. It is a crucial means to address Climate change, bio diversity loss, water scarcity, pollution and other major global challenges. Resource efficiency solutions focus on specific resources and explore ways to reduce their use and the negative impact of their uses.

Resource Efficiency and Circular Economy Strategies helps in reducing the negative impacts of plastic waste, E-Waste and Granite Waste.

Changes in the commodity markets and price volatility of resources in the last decade have significantly increased attention towards resource issues and its implications for supply security and competitiveness

Policy for Resource Efficiency and Circular Economy

Telangana, the youngest state of the country, is on a high growth path, which requires significant re-sources. Being a progressive state and to pursue economic development with minimal harm to the environment, Telangana government has taken an initiative to mainstream Resource Efficiency and Circular Economy in the priority sector in the State; enabling convergence with India’s Resource Efficiency strategy and SDG goals. The nodal department in the state of Telangana is TSIIC (Telangana state industrial infrastructure corporation). The work on this strategy paper is supported by the partnership project of EU and Government of India-EU –Resource Efficiency Initiative (EU-REI).

CCX looked at the role of abiotic resources (primary and secondary materials excluding fossil fuels) as part of strategy paper on the economic development of Telangana with minimum harm to environment, and evaluated the current policy framework, available technologies, and financial mechanisms which support the same.

Sustainable Industrial Park in Navalga, Telangana State helps in relocating the limestone polishing and cutting industries in Tandur to Navalga thereby reducing the air pollution in Tandur.

Due to Limestone polishing and cutting industries Tandur town has been facing the problems of air pollution in the town, movement of a large number of heavy vehicles and disposal of stone cutting and polishing sludge.

Providing world class ecosystem

The Sustainable Industrial Park provides a world-class ecosystem for manufacturing industries and service-oriented industries and proposes to develop infrastructure facilities for the model industrial park for Tandur limestone rock processing. The infrastructure development is focused on water supply, water distribution, internal roads, stormwater drains, electrical distribution network, internal street lighting, wastewater and waste management facilities and services buildings.

Rapid Industrialization

The Sustainable Industrial park for Limestone Industries of Tandur at Korviched, Navalga and Masanpally (M) villages is built in 298.9 acres on the Walk to Work concept. The project paved a way for rapid industrialization in Vikarabad District and Telangana.

We are working with governments to develop the sustainable industrial parks. Join us.

Food processing is the necessary conversion of raw materials to edible, functional, and culturally acceptable food products, and is an Important link between production and consumption within the food value chain. Without increased attention to the role of food processing for a maintainable food supply, we are unlikely to succeed in addressing the mounting challenges in delivering sustainable diets for all.

The absence of a sustainable food processing sector contributes to the excessive food wastage in our country. Focus on food processing and preservation infrastructure can reduce this burden.

Special Food Processing Zones

Development of Special Food Processing Zones provide modern infrastructure facilities for the food processing along the value chain from the farm to the market and project also takes into consideration creation of food processing infrastructure near the farm.

SPFZ enhance the market opportunities for the farmers and provides following benefits:

  • Enhance farmer’s income.
  • Minimize wastage at all stages in the food processing chain.
  • Introduction of modern technology.
  • Encourage R&D.

As a part of the project proposed by the Telangana State Govt. Core CarbonX Solutions Pvt. Ltd. is preparing a Master Plan and a Detailed Project Report for SPFZ in three districts Mancherial, Rajanna Sircilla and Jangaon.

We are working with governments to develop the Special Food Processing Zones. Join us.

The CBBOs help in registration and training of FPOs, appointment of professional expertise, assist in regular interface with stakeholders, assist in facilitating traceability and provide market-linkage for products both local and global.

Small Farmer Agri-business Consortium (SFAC) has designed a three tier structure to promote the Farmer Producer Organizations (FPOs). The structure will have cluster-based business organisations (CBBOs), which will play the function of resource institutes (RIs) on the ground-level. CBBOs also work with the state governments to ensure that FPOs get all the benefits that are accorded to cooperatives.

Ensuring Better Incomes

Small farmers/producers do not have the volume individually (both inputs and produce) to get the benefit of economies of scale. Besides, in agricultural marketing, there is a long chain of intermediaries who very often work non-transparently leading to the situation where the producer receives only a small part of the value that the ultimate consumer pays. Through aggregation, the primary producers can avail the benefit of economies of scale.

We are working with both government and non-government organisations to establish business plans for farmers. Join us.

CCX project on conservation and development of Mangrove at Ennore creek helped to increase the resilience to climate change and improve livelihoods through adaptive co-management of mangroves and associated ecosystems.

Mangroves are threatened as a result of increasing coastal population, settlements and Industries, unsustainable coastal development and land-based activities. The combination of these with natural forces have impelled climate change impacts. Out of ignorance of their immeasurable values, mangroves are being damaged, and are also treated as some waste reservoirs.

Improving Lives

  • Waste Management and Pollution Control
  • Setting up Mangrove Nurseries
  • Creating livelihoods for local communities

Restoring Livelihood

While it meant conservation of Mangroves, the restoration also helps in enhancing the livelihoods of the coastal communities at various levels leading to economic growth. A platform for carbon ecosystem conservation, restoration and scientific research and development known as Ennore Mangrove Forum has also been established.

We are working with governments to restore the ecosystem of Mangroves. Join us.
