Greenhouse Gas Emissions Trading
Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions trading is being considered by many public and private leaders as a practical way to reduce, and eventually reverse, the potential impacts of global warming. While the system for quantifying and trading in GHG credits has not yet been finalized, EMCON/OWT, Inc. is helping landfill owners in the United States and internationally to prepare themselves to act on opportunities that may arise when a trading system is in place.

Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions trading is being considered by many public and private leaders as a practical way to reduce, and eventually reverse, the potential impacts of global warming. While the system for quantifying and trading in GHG credits has not yet been finalized, EMCON/OWT, Inc. is helping landfill owners in the United States and internationally position themselves to take advantage of likely upcoming GHG trading rules. These rules may allow landfill operators to sell "emission credits," earned for destroying the potent GHG, methane (CH4), prior to its discharge to the atmosphere.

Our services focus on simple strategies for documenting steps landfill operators may already be taking as part of proper landfill operations. Our GHG services include:

  • Review of credit issues
  • Recordkeeping procedures
  • Establishment of protocols
  • Credit verification
  • Creation of credit report
  • Packaging credits for marketing
  • Facilitation of credit sales
