Kyoto Protocol And Wood Pellets In Search Of Clean Projects

Mar 22, 2008
Known as CDM or clean development mechanism, entities who have signed this protocol are required to adhere to its standards and regulations.

What it means

The ultimate objective of the Kyoto protocol is to facilitate the reduction in emissions and ensure sustainable developmental projects in every country across the globe. Most CDM projects undertaken have resulted in significant reductions in emissions of carbon dioxide. The usage of carbon neutral fuel forms such as wood pellets is also largely encouraged. Unlike traditional sawmills which serve to produce large amounts of methane the wood pellets are clean fuel forms which again are in accordance with the norms stipulated in the Kyoto protocol. As far as local industries are concerned the traditionally used fossil fuels would be substituted by wood pellets. The local and small sized sawmills will also benefit from this protocol as they have been finding it difficult to dispose of their stockpiles. Of course the environmental hazards cannot be disputed which will be eliminated with this protocol.

Global consent

The Kyoto protocol seems to have met with worldwide acceptance especially amongst the developing countries. As per the UNFCCC which is also called the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change there have been more than 800 CDM projects enrolled for in over 48 nations and more than 1300 others are in progress. It has been anticipated that by 2012 year end more than 2 billions worth of carbon credit (weighed in tons) will be accrued. This figure is at par with the yearly emissions emanated from Russia!

How to reap the benefits

Nations who wish to maximize the advantages of CDM projects need to firstly verify the Kyoto protocol. They also need to set up a DNA or a designated national authority which corresponds to a ministry in the government. This organization will serve to approve all proposals regarding the CDM projects. There is also a sufficient amount of proof needed from the developing countries that in the absence of CDM projects more greenhouse gases will be emitted.

Global warming

The large scale global warming happening all across the world has led to more and more nations coming up with alternative fuel mechanisms. One such fuel is wood pellets and the Kyoto protocol hopes to leverage this fuel form to the maximum extent. Being both renewable and sustainable with zero carbon emission, this is being considered as the most ideal fuel form. Thus as part of its CDM or clean development mechanism the protocol hopes to ensure that more nations use clean forms while implementing industrial projects. The ultimate aim of the protocol is to reduce the overall greenhouse emissions and reduce carbon dioxide emitted into the environment. The end objective is to eventually slow the pace of climate change and ensure the world stays a cooler place in the years to come!
