Digital environmental credits are a form of currency that can be traded and used to offset the environmental impact of various activities. These credits represent the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, the preservation of natural habitats, or the adoption of sustainable practices. They can be used by companies and individuals to offset their carbon footprint or meet regulatory requirements related to sustainability.
Changeblock aims to make it easier and more affordable for individuals, businesses, and governments to offset their environmental impact and contribute to the transition towards a more sustainable future. The company uses blockchain technology to ensure security and transparency in transactions, and also provides market access and insights, as well as auditing, offsetting and sustainability services for corporate business practices.
One of the ways that Changeblock is helping to facilitate the adoption of digital environmental credits is by integrating with artificially intelligent cameras, near infrared sensors, and other types of sensors in real-time. This allows the company to create a guaranteed immutable data stream that can be used to validate and verify the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions or the adoption of sustainable practices. By providing high integrity environmental assets, Changeblock is helping to create a more efficient and transparent market for digital environmental credits.
Overall, the use of digital environmental credits has the potential to play a significant role in the transition to a more sustainable future. By providing a mechanism for individuals and companies to offset their environmental impact and make a positive contribution, these credits can help to drive the adoption of cleaner technologies and practices. Changeblock is at the forefront of this effort, working to make it easier and more affordable for everyone to participate in this important transition.
Digital environmental credits, such as digital carbon credits, are a way for individuals, businesses, and governments to offset their environmental impact and contribute to the transition towards a more sustainable future. At Changeblock we aim to make it easier and more affordable for these groups to offset their environmental impact through the use of technology.
One key way that we do this is through the use of blockchain technology. Blockchain is a decentralized, secure, and transparent digital ledger that can be used to record transactions and track assets. By using blockchain, Changeblock is able to ensure the security and transparency of its transactions, which is especially important in the context of environmental credits.
In addition to using blockchain, Changeblock integrates in real-time with sensors and cameras, Changeblock is able to capture accurate and verifiable data about environmental impact and offset projects, ensuring trust in the data being captured and the environmental assets being generated. This data is then independently audited to ensure its accuracy and reliability, adding an additional layer of security and transparency to the process.
The data that Changeblock is able to capture might include data on emissions, energy usage, water usage, land use, and more.
Example: In a carbon offset project, we might use AI cameras to capture images of a forested area, which can then be analyzed using computer vision algorithms to estimate the amount of carbon sequestered by the trees. This data can then be used to generate a digital carbon credit, which can be traded globally.
Similarly, in a water offset project, we might use sensors to measure water usage and flow rates, as well as temperature and pressure sensors to monitor the quality of the water. This data can be used to generate digital water credits, which can be traded in a similar way to carbon credits.
Case Study - NIR in Plastic Credit Creation
Near Infrared (NIR) spectroscopy is a technique that uses the absorption of NIR wavelengths to identify different types of plastics. When NIR light is shone on a sample, the light is absorbed by the sample at specific wavelengths, which can be used to identify the material. This is because different materials absorb light at different wavelengths, creating a unique absorption spectrum.
In the case of plastic identification, NIR spectroscopy is typically used to identify polymers, which are the building blocks of plastics. Polymers have unique absorption spectra, so by analyzing the absorption spectrum of a plastic sample, it is possible to identify the specific polymer(s) present in the sample.
NIR spectroscopy is a non-destructive and non-invasive technique, making it a convenient and cost-effective way to identify different types of plastic. It is also a fast technique, with the ability to identify plastics in real-time, making it useful for sorting and recycling applications.
At Fusion One, NIR sensors are integrated within the system, such as conveyor belts and sorting machines, to automatically identify and sort different types of plastic. This allows the system to separate different types of plastic more efficiently, increasing the quality and value of the environmental credits. The data is signed off at source and brought on chain enabling highly customised plastic credits to be created and issued.
Changeblock can use the data generated by NIR sensors in a recycling plant to generate high quality plastic credits. These credits could be used to offset the environmental impact of producing new plastic, or to incentivize the recycling of plastic materials. By integrating NIR sensors and other technologies into its platform, Changeblock can help to create a more efficient and sustainable economy, while also providing financial benefits for businesses and individuals that are working to reduce their environmental impact.
Overall, the use of sensors and cameras allows Changeblock to capture accurate and verifiable data about environmental impact and offset projects, which can be used to generate high integrity environmental assets that can be traded on a blockchain platform. By using these sensors, Changeblock can gather data on a range of environmental factors, such as air quality, carbon emissions, and temperature.
This data is then used to generate high integrity environmental assets, such as digital carbon credits. Digital carbon credits are a way for individuals, businesses, and governments to offset their carbon emissions by purchasing credits from projects that reduce, remove, or avoid carbon emissions. By using the data gathered from its sensors and cameras, Changeblock is able to generate accurate and reliable digital carbon credits that can be used by individuals, businesses, and governments to offset their carbon emissions.
Changeblock's use of technology, including blockchain and sensors, is helping to make it easier and more affordable for individuals, businesses, and governments to offset their environmental impact and contribute to the transition towards a more sustainable future.
