Economies globally are striving towards achieving significant carbon reductions over the next 3 to 4 decades. Effective and trustworthy credentialing of decarbonisation or carbon offset impacts and claims will be central to verifying performance against targets. Green Finance will be anchored by independent verification and validation. STN is working with leaders and innovators in various areas that can meaningfully impact carbon mitigation. Projects include:
1. Carbon abatement in livestock production systems. This project emanates from decades’ of industry know-how and practical experience in the Australian beef industry, and is also expanding to address opportunities in New Zealand, South America and South Africa.
2. Green energy credence claims. We have two projects globally addressing issues related to tracking and credentialing claims made about the energy inputs of production systems touching on hydrogen, metals and significant industry products like ammonia.
3. Starch-based high-tech packaging technologies, with proven high-impact benefits in terms of carbon capture when returned to the earth. Ongoing laboratory testing and production refinement will see further improvements in impact ranges, with global applications.
4. Activated carbon production utilising unique and patented manufacturing technologies. These systems have been operational for a number of years, and are gearing up for diversified global expansion on the back of robust credence claims.
