Approximately 70 percent of Afghanistan’s total power capacity of 1450 W is imported from the neighbouring countries. The country has limited indigenous sources of electricity. Afghanistan can greatly benefit from making the transition from non renewable energy to relying on renewable energy especially Solar energy.

Under this engagement, Core CarbonX has evaluated solar energy potential from rooftops in the city of Kabul. The study has also evaluated the carbon revenue potential from solar rooftop projects in Afghanistan. 300 Sunny days in a year with abundant free Solar irradiation to generate solar power and strong support from Government makes the country an attractive destination for setting up photovoltaic solar power projects.

Improving Lives:

The contribution of solar energy towards climate change mitigation and environmental stewardships were evaluated and showcased by associated carbon revenue that can help in bringing in potential external finance in the renewable energy sector in Afghanistan. Solar rooftop and grid-connected net-metering projects are encouraged and recommended due to the potential benefits of rooftop area, energy security, and generating clean and green energy.

We are working with various governments to fight climate change. Join us.

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.

We work with various governments on Carbon Stock assessment to restore Mangroves. Join us.

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.

Join us on this mission.

Energy efficient cookstoves in the Republic of Myanmar help families live better lives: less pollution, as well as augment incomes.

Families in Myanmar used traditional methods – either open fire or three-stone method for cooking. These were fairly inefficient at converting energy into heat for cooking. Fuel is wasted, as heat is allowed to escape into the open air. These are unhealthy too; they cause diseases like bronchitis and pneumonia.

Improving Lives

The Improved Cook Stoves (ICS) have been designed to provide an enclosure for the fire to reduce the loss of radiant heat, protect it against wind and increase heat transfer, thereby increasing efficiency.

Economic Advancement

While it also meant faster cooking, the cookstoves helped save time and fuel, cleaner pans, kitchen walls and health expenditure. Carbon credits also augmented the income of these families leading to economic advancement

We are working with other governments to widen the usage of improved cookstoves (ICS). Join us.

Seepage of Solid Waste into underlying soil and water, contaminates both. This waste rots and decomposes, and produces harmful greenhouse gases (CO2 & Methane) contributing to global warming. Land filling of solid waste is the most practiced method worldwide resulting in landfill pollution and has wider effects on human health as well as on Environment. Methane that is generated due to solid waste is the leading cause of fires at landfills, resulting in garbage burning and air pollution.

 

To overcome Landfill pollution, Rourkela Municipal Corporation, Orissa engaged CCX team for below:

  • Evaluation of landfill facility for Disposal of Municipal Solid Waste and Detailed Project Report (DPR) on Landfill waste management.
  • BID process management for Construction of Scientific Sanitary Landfill Site.
  • Process Management for Bioremediation of existing Dumping site. 

*A Scientific Landfill minimizes the risk of waste-generated pollutants seeping underground and reduces the generation of methane that can light up the garbage.
This reduces the risk of environmental or health hazards tremendously.*

CCX team has been working with many state government agencies across India on such environmental sustainable programs. Join us.
