BlueCarbon Institute (BC-I)
The services provided by BC-I include the Research Facility and the Carbon Measurement, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) lab. These aspects of our business are crucial to the credibility and transparency of credits we generate. MRV refers to the multi-step process BC-S2C uses to measure the amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduced by our blue, teal and green restoration projects over the project term (25-100 years) and the reporting of these findings to key stakeholders.
The Research Facility will be established to test the latest innovative technologies from around the world to improve the quality and efficiency of on-county blue, teal and green carbon restoration, credit generation and project and credit measurement, reporting and verification.
The Research Facility will be a convenient central meeting and collaboration point where we can work with interested parties such as professional and citizen scientists, governments, the community and volunteers that want to help either at BC-I or our field sites.
Carbon MRV Lab
A carbon lab will be used for our ongoing carbon and co-benefit MRV. These aspects of our business are crucial to the credibility and transparency of credits we generate.
