LTER/EPRI methodology generates first GHG offsets PDF Print E-mail

The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) announced today the first agricultural greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) offsets transaction based on validation and verification methodology developed by EPRI and KBS LTER researchers.

The American Carbon Registry issued the offsets, called Emission Reduction Tons, to a Michigan farmer for voluntarily reducing nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions by curbing the amount of nitrogen-based fertilizer used to grow corn.
