In this episode of Business Insider’s “World Wide Waste,” we follow Ecologia Total’s Angel Toledo, who, with the support of Tradewater, embarks on the difficult task of managing refrigerant gas from scrapped fridges.
Explore our first international project from 2017 in Ghana. We collected and destroyed 15,000 kg of CFC-12 through two projects, resulting in the issuance of more than 150,000 tons of carbon offset credits.
Brown University — They partnered with us to achieve their sustainability goals by offsetting and reducing greenhouse gas emissions on their campus. Under the leadership of the director of the Office of Sustainability and Brown’s assistant provost for sustainability, who collectively oversee sustainable campus operations, education and research — developed and published the University’s Sustainability Strategic Plan. The plan included a commitment to reduce campus greenhouse gas emissions by 75% by 2025 and to become net zero by 2040. Purchasing carbon offset credits from projects that permanently destroy overlooked sources of harmful greenhouse gases represents just one step on the path to reaching these targets.
Chicago, IL – Our pilot project in collaboration with Iron Mountain (NYSE: IRM) and Wesco HMB, demonstrates an economically viable, environmentally responsible end-of-life solution for halon gas, one of the world’s most dangerous greenhouse gasses. The destruction of the world’s remaining halon gas could eliminate over 300 million tons of carbon pollution worldwide, or the equivalent of eliminating the annual greenhouse gas emissions of more than 65 million cars.
