CleanBay Renewables Inc. (CleanBay) today announced that it is working with the Climate Action Reserve (the reserve) to establish a nitrous oxide (N2O) avoidance framework and a methodology for carbon credit accounting associated with fuel and fertilizer derived from poultry manure.

The reserve, the premier carbon offset registry for the North American market, will initially focus on quantifying the emission reductions from the conversion of agricultural byproducts, like poultry manure, into controlled-release fertilizers. The team will also establish mechanisms to calculate the displacement of fossil transport fuels through the use of agriculture-derived renewable natural gas. The end goal is to develop a science-based framework that is applicable across the entire agricultural sector, enabling science-based carbon credit accounting for agricultural N2O emission reductions.

“Through The Reserve’s independent analysis, we are confident that our process to create renewable natural gas and controlled-release fertilizer from poultry litter will prove to be a sustainable solution to our country’s emissions challenges,” said Thomas Spangler, CleanBay’s Executive Chairman. “Further, The Reserve will help scientifically quantify the amount of greenhouse gas emissions that each of our facilities will reduce, while also developing a carbon credit accounting method for the entire agricultural sector.”
