What is eCO2data?
eCO2data is a web-based platform dedicated to the carbon market. We are a fully independent and transparent professional data provider for carbon markets.
Who uses eCO2data?
Our members are project developers, consultants, investors, credit buyers, brokers, banks, DOEs, students, research professors,.. anyone who is directly or indirectly associated with market based Climate Change solutions. To learn more about our customers and the added value we bring to our different users, please go to Consumers page
Why should I use eCO2data...?
You can find all kinds of information about projects: credit buyers, organizations involved, issuance details, planned annual reductions, baseline information, current registration status, timeline history,.. The platform is also directed to users of the secondary market and offers intelligent information about portfolio management, market prices and their respective evolutions.
Which carbon standards are available?
4. (CDM, prior CDM, JI and VCS). Other major mandatory and voluntary standards will be added soon. We are concerned with the the needs of market participants and will add standards if they have the required level of maturity. If you would like us to add a specific standard please email us at [email protected].
Where do you get all the data?
We collect, analyse and collate information from both private and public sources. Our public sources include UNFCCC, UNEP Risoe and IGES. We use redundant sources and a rigorous filtering process so we are assured of the quality of the data we compute. We strive to deliver the most up-to- date and reliable data for our users. However, if you encounter any errors or see room for improvements please let us know by using the feedback option in the contact form (link on the top of the page). Our data team will respond to you within 24 hours.
How often are data refreshed?
Our data engine extracts and organizes all data as soon as they are released. This way, our data refreshes nearly in real-time.
What is the advantage of real time data?
The advantage of having the information as it is released can be key for certain market players. It allows the bottom assumption to assume that we deliver no outdated information, and it gives brokers, credit buyers and others that valorize this a competitive advantage, because users of our platform will be the first to be able to discover or analyze new opportunities that just entered the market.
Will I get all the information on Carbon that I need with eCO2data?
eCO2data tries to be a one stop solution for everyone. Our social media pages ( Twitter, Facebook, Blog) complement the available quantitative information on the platform with links and more descriptive updates on important happenings.
Can I use your data for reproduction?
Yes, for any non-commercial purpose. Do make sure to mention eco2data.com as your data provider in any reproductions. We kindly refer to the’ Terms Page’.
Why does the ‘pricing’ page not reveal the prices for Pro and Expert ?
This is from a practical point of view. We want to ensure full client satisfaction and therefore insist on a primary demonstration of the platform. A clear showing of prices would inhibit skipping this important step and consequentially a less beneficial user experience.
On the “projects overview” page, I see an 'Update' message for each project. What does that mean?
Updates refer to the moment at which our database acquires new information about a given project. Update : 23 hours ago would mean we captured the registration event 23 hours ago.
Can you explain your technologies classification?Our technologies classification is based on UNFCCC, UNEP, IGES and Voluntary standarda. It is made to simplify comparing projects in different standards.
ForestryAfforestation: Afforestation is planting seeds or trees to make a forest on land which has not recently been a forest, or which has never been a forest.Mangroves : projects that aim to protect and develop mangroves.Reforestation: Restocking existing forests and woodlands which have been depleted.
Industrial ProcessesCement: Projects where lime in the cement is replaced by other materials, or neutralization with lime is avoided.CH4 Avoidance: Projects producing bio-gas from manure, waste water, industrial solid waste, Palm oil solid waste, or avoiding CH4 by composting or aerobic treatment.CO2 Capture: Recovered CO2 from tail gas substituting fossil fuels for production of CO2.Coal Mine/Bed: CH4 is collected from coal mines or coal beds: Coal Mine Methane, Coal Bed Methane, CMM & Ventilation Air Methane, Ventilation Air Methane.Fugitive: Recovery instead of flaring CH4 from oil wells, gas pipeline leaks, charcoal production, fires in coal pilesHFC: HFC23 is used in the semiconductor industry in plasma etching of silicon oxide and silicon nitride. It is also a useful refrigerant, sometimes as a replacement for Chlorotrifluoromethane (cfc-13) and is a manufacturing byproduct.LFG: Collection of landfill gas, composting of MSW, or incinerating waste instead of putting it in a landfill.N2O: N20 reduction from production of nitric acid, adipic acid, or caprolactam.Ozone: projects that aim for protecting and cleaning the ozone.PFC: Perfluorocarbons (PFCs) are fluorocarbons, or compounds derived from hydrocarbons by replacing hydrogen atoms with fluorine atoms. The most abundant atmospheric PFC is tetrafluoromethane. The primary source of tetrafluoromethane in the environment is from Reforestation Restocking of existing forests and woodlands which have been depleted.SF6: Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) is an inorganic, colorless, odorless, non-toxic and non-flammable gas (under standard conditions). SF6 is used as a switching and insulation medium in electrical power equipment because of its unique physical properties.
Energy EfficiencyEE Household: EEnergy Efficiency improvements in domestic houses and appliances: lighting, stoves, cooling, lighting, insulation and solar, etc.EE Industry: End-use Energy Efficiency improvements in industry: steam optimization, fuel efficiency improvement in glass melting, Ammonia Plant removal system, etc.EE Own: Industrial waste heat or waste gas used for electricity production: waste gas is incinerated to supply process heat used at the production site; to benefit from the excess heat it is necessary to recover and feed it to a steam turbine, for instance.EE Service: Energy Efficiency improvements in buildings and appliances in public and private service.EE Supply:More efficient power plants producing electricity and district heat, Coal Field Fire Extinguishing.Distribution: Reduction in losses in transmission/distribution of electricity/district heat, Country interconnection Fuel Switch from one fossil fuel to another fossil fuel (including new natural gas power plants).
Renewable EnergiesBiomass: New plant using biomass or existing ones changing from fossil to biomass, also biofuels: bagasse power, palm oil solid waste, agricultural residues: other kinds, rice husk, mustard crop, poultry litter, black liquor, or forest residues like sawmills.Geothermal: Geothermal energy (from the Greek roots geo, meaning earth, and thermos, meaning heat) is power extracted from heat stored in the earth. This geothermal energy originates from the original formation of the planet, from radioactive decay of minerals, from volcanic activity, and from solar energy absorbed at the surface that is re-emitted.Hydro: Hydroelectricity is the term referring to electricity generated by hydropower; the production of electrical power through the use of the gravitational force of falling or flowing water.Solar: Solar photovoltaics, solar water heating, or solar cooking.Tidal: Tidal power, also called tidal energy, is a form of hydropower that converts the energy of tides into electricity or other useful forms of power.Wind: Wind power is the conversion of wind energy into a useful form of energy, such as using wind turbines to make electricity, wind mills for mechanical power, wind pumps for pumping water or drainage, or sails to propel ships.
Others TechnologiesAgriculture: Irrigation, alternative fertilizers, rice crop CH4.Fuel Switch: Switch from one fossil fuel to another fossil fuel (including new natural gas power plants).Transport: More efficient fuels like biodiesel for transport, or scrapping old vehicles. Also includes mode shifts like road to rail, bus rapid transit, regenerative rail braking, or more efficient light rail operation.
