VM0040 Methodology for Greenhouse Gas Capture and Utilization in Plastic Materials, v1.0
3. Energy demand
23 July 2019
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.
