A significant proportion of carbon dioxide emissions come from the combustion of biomass (biological material made from carbon, hydrogen and oxygen). Burning biomass results in emissions which are considered carbon-neutral, because the carbon is generated by the natural carbon cycle. Under current Kyoto Protocol, and a number of greenhouse gas emissions programs, using biomass and biomass by-products as alternative fuels can be classified as reducing greenhouse gas emissions. By differentiating between biogenic- and fossil-derived carbon dioxide, your company can quantify your effective greenhouse gas emissions and the credits you need to offset your carbon footprint. If you can report lower emissions with confidence, you can also potentially capitalize on surplus allowances for trading. Using radiocarbon dating, our qualified technicians can give you an accurate breakdown of what fraction of your emissions are biogenic. The method is fast, reliable and cost-effective. It eliminates the need for labor-intensive, expensive and hazardous tests for physical properties of mixed-fuels and other measurement techniques requiring continuous monitoring. Our team takes samples on site with the latest equipment. Results are analysed at an accredited laboratory with extensive experience in radiocarbon dating. Let us monitor your environmental performance while you focus on your core business. Call us today for a fast and sustainable solution for your future.
