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. For further information about Hydrologic’s Carbon Finance Project: Production and Dissemination of Ceramic Water Purifiers by Hydrologic in the Kingdom of Cambodia – GS1020. Please visit the Gold Standard Project Registry.

Hydrologic is currently renewing the Carbon Finance project for another 7-year term. Click “GOLD STANDARD PASSPORT“, “GOLD STANDARD LOCAL STAKEHOLDER CONSULTATION REPORT“, “PROJECT DESIGN DOCUMENT” to download the reports.
