(Vancouver, BC, November 16, 2010) GreenAngel Energy Corp. (”GreenAngel”) (TSX-V: GAE) reports that investee company Habitat Carbon Assets have partnered with Brazil’s second largest pig iron producer to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and in the process generate up to $4 million worth of UN certified carbon credits.
The project involves the replacement of old wood burning kilns with innovative highly energy efficient kiln technology, reducing carbon emissions by over 200,000 tonnes. Because the installation will also lead to reductions in other gases, including methane, and the offsets will be certified through the United Nations the resulting carbon credits are considered to be of premium value. Habitat will share 48% of the expected $4 million worth of credits created in the project.
Comments Habitat CEO Thomas Kineshanko, ”This project firmly validates Habitat’s ability to add value to large-scale cleantech buyers. We are positioning our new OffsetID platform to be the leading global platform for cleantech buyers and sellers to identify and realize carbon revenue. This milestone has helped to advance our discussions with some of the leading cleantech players in North America.”
Michael Volker, Chairman of GreenAngel comments, ”We expect this agreement to be the first of many for Habitat as they leverage their new OffsetID platform to rapidly identify, quantify and implement carbon offset projects like this one. Even though the carbon market is already large, we believe there remains still great unexploited potential – particularly in South America.”
