Project#1 – California GE PRS –
Global Emissionairy works to reduce the carbon footprint of the paving industry. Contractors partner with Global Emissionairy to generate carbon credits for recycling pavement with cold in place recycling (CIR), cold central plant recycling (CCPR), and full depth reclamation (FDR) using reclaimed aggregate pavement (RAP), asphalt emulsions, and foam stabilized asphalt base (FSAB or FSB). Global Emissionairy quantifies carbon emission reductions in a cradle-to-installation life cycle analysis (LCA) using its Verra-approved methodology (VM0039) and patented process (US 10,870,953 B2) and converts these reductions into verified carbon units (VCUs) which can be traded on the voluntary carbon market.

Global Emissionary’s Verra Approved VM0039 methodology credits sustainable roadway construction with these key environmental factors in mind:

Reduced energy consumption: Eliminate the need for extensive heating of materials, as required in traditional hot mix asphalt methods. This significantly reduces energy consumption and associated greenhouse gas emissions.

Preservation of natural resources: Reusing existing pavement materials reduces the demand for new aggregate and asphalt, thus preserving natural resources.

Minimization of waste: By recycling existing pavement materials on-site, minimizing the need for disposal in landfills and reducing the environmental impact of waste management.

Lower carbon footprint: Due to reduced energy consumption, preservation of natural resources, and minimized waste generation, recycling existing pavement results in a lower overall carbon footprint compared to conventional road construction methods.

Project #1 California: Sustainable construction methods were utilized to reclaim 95.53 lane miles of roadways in California, reusing 252,671 tonnes of asphalt millings which prevented mining of virgin aggregate, and prevented 21,116 tonnes of carbon from being released into the atmosphere.

The road work was performed in the following locations with the corresponding emissions reductions in tCO2e.

Community and Stakeholder Comments:
In implementing carbon-reducing measures, Global Emissionairy avoids negatively impacting natural environments, local communities, and the health and safety of project stakeholders, project proponents, and project workers. We invite all project stakeholders, community members, and workers to contact Global Emissionairy with any project feedback that they may have.
Supply Chain Emissions:
Carbon credits may be issued through Verified Carbon Standard project 3839 for the greenhouse gas emission reductions associated with Global Emissionairy facilitated projects producing low carbon asphalt products.
