This methodology is globally applicable to project activities that convert carbon dioxide and/or methane, which would have otherwise been emitted into the atmosphere, into a useful plastic material for sale into the plastics market. Such project activities reduce greenhouse gas emissions in two ways. First, project activities sequester carbon dioxide and/or methane into plastic material. Second, the process for manufacturing plastic material from sequestered carbon dioxide and/or methane is typically less emission-intensive than the traditional process for manufacturing plastic material.
