NMMC MAKES A MARK IN THE INTERNAIONAL SPHERE FOR BEING THE FIRST CORPORATION TO FACILITATE CARBON CREDIT IN INDIA

carban-5For the first time in the history of India, the carbon credit project has been initiated by NMMC and would be soon implemented at the Turbhe dumping ground. NMMC has joined hands with a U K based company, making a mark in the international sphere. NMMC whose activities have been constantly highlighted by the media has been carrying out some prominent and significant schemes and plans after which it has made its mark not just nationally but globally. Where on one side NMMC is the second civic corporation to have its own dam, the Morbe dam, on the other hand it is the first corporation to introduce carbon credit by adopting scientific methods for the garbage dumping. Most of you would be wondering what is carbon credit and does it work. The threats of global warming are hanging all over the world. To combat this issue, a seminar on an international level was held which discussed the measures to control and curb the gases affecting environment and the strategy called Carbon Credit was initiated. The city engineer further informed that despite other corporations, NMMC bagged the international name for availing carbon credit in its dumping ground. The implementation of carbon credit project will go a long way in controlling methane gas released from the dumping ground. NMMC will also reap benefits from this project without any sort of monetary expenses. The carbon credit project will not just capture the methane released due to dumping but would in turn be utilized to generate energy. Till now NMMC has only signed the agreement in collaboration with a Britain based company but according to the city engineer, this would soon become a reality in the next 6 months. Once the project is completed, NMMC would not just have a carbon credit system in place but would also contribute towards the conservation of environment.
