Carbon Emission Reductions

Households that use a Tunsai ceramic water purifier (CWP) typically reduce or eliminate boiling water for drinking.  Less boiling means less use of non-renewable wood and charcoal, which are the main sources of energy for cooking in rural Cambodia.  By reducing the need for fuel wood and charcoal, each CWP reduces the stress on local forest resources and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

Hydrologic registered the production and dissemination of the CWP in Cambodia as a carbon project with the Gold Standard in August 2012. Since the first verification in December 2012, Hydrologic has issued carbon offset credits for over 200,000 tCO2e, with an additional 140,000 tCO2e credits expected to be issued by the end of 2016.
