Decarbonizing the atmosphere
ALLCOT develops Technology-Based Solution projects in an effort to contribute to climate change mitigation.
Using technology as a drive to decarbonize the environment, we work towards helping organizations to efficiently transition to the use of clean energy, thus reducing negative impacts to the environment.
RENEWABLE ENERGY PROJECTS
Solar, wind, biomass and hydro solutions
Energy systems employed by organizations, businesses and societies is source of a considerable amount of global carbon emissions. Transitioning to the use of renewable energy sources is key in contributing to carbon emissions reduction.
The installation of solar, wind, hydro and biomass plants, prevents the emission of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, which, in turn, generates carbon credits.
Waste management projects
ALLCOT actively works in the waste management sector, developing emission mitigation projects in all phases of waste management. The waste sector accounts for approximately 3,2% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
WASTE TO ENERGY
Waste to energy projects involve all of those waste management activities that generate energy using solid urban waste as raw material. The energy produced can replace conventional fossil fuel.
Waste to energy projects are a very valuable tool, since they can reduce greenhouse gas emissions in two ways:
LANDFILL GAS FLARING AND LANDFILL GAS TO ENERGY
Flaring projects are implemented directly into landfills or solid urban waste disposal sites. They involve the capture of biogas generated by the waste’s organic fraction (with high methane content) through the installation of extractive wells and biogas pipes into the landfill.
Flaring projects reduce GHG emissions through biogas capture, as well as generating alternative energy to fossil fuels.
Biogas’ active capture can then be disposed of by:
Composting projects help minimize methane generation, a very perjudicial greenhouse gas.
By separating organic from inorganic fraction in landfills, we make it possible to manage organic waste under conditions of humidity, temperature and aeration. That ensures optimal conditions for aerobic decomposition.
Compost has the added value of its capacity to act as organic fertilizer in sustainable agriculture, replacing synthetic fertilizers and conventional organic fertilizers. This contributes to lessen fertilizers’ impact on the environment.
The value of recycling projects comes from the emission reduction that industries can achieve by using recycled material in its manufacturing process.
The process consists of retiring solid waste such as glass, plastic, metal or cardboard from the environment, and transforming them into materials that can be re-inserted into the production cycle.
This process can replace the use of virgin raw material, which has a greater impact on the environment.
ENERGY EFFICIENCY PROJECTS
Transitioning to a sustainable energy use
At ALLCOT we help organizations understand how they can improve their use of energy, becoming more sustainable and efficient.
Our team of experts supports you in the design and implementation of energy efficiency projects, guiding your organization towards avoiding carbon dioxide emissions.
Implement more efficient transportation
When talking about transport projects, ALLCOT helps organizations plan and implement their transition to new and more efficient transportation systems. For instance, by replacing a city’s diesel bus fleet with electric buses.
The carbon credits generated in these projects allow, in turn, to finance the transition to more efficient and less pollution transportation means.
