The Cerenzie Process
The Cerenzie Process is a proven, cost effective GHG reduction technology
which has two patents pending that are owned by GGSSI. This technology
uses a combination of pure oxygen combustion, membrane separation and ozonation
scrubbing mechanisms. The Process is unique in that, compared to competing
technologies, it costs less to implement and it does not require any
reduction in plant production. In fact, it can accommodate increased levels
of production and emissions making it very attractive from an operational
This GHG Reduction Process has been successfully demonstrated in a pilot
plant located in Alberta, Canada. The Canadian Government sponsored
"Environmental Technology Verification Program" has also independently
verified that the pure oxygen combustion component of the Process
captures up to 92% of CO2 from flue gases thereby providing very
valuable GHG emission reduction credits for industry players. The
Process has many applications in the separation and capture of a
wide range of gases in a managed approach to the overall reduction
of GHG emissions. Customers are able to adapt the Process to meet
their most pressing needs and individual requirements.

Climate Change Opportunities for Businesses:
climate change does not only create new risks, costs and liabilities,
but also generate economic opportunities, such as investments in
carbon sequestration projects, renewable energy technologies, energy
efficiency projects, emissions trading, and climate change related
microfinance presented by GGSSI.
Identification and Monitoring of Gas Compositions
GGSSI can provide equipment and technical services for GHG emissions identification
and analysis as the first step in quantifying and documenting the composition
of a variety of gases according to the ISO standards established for project
baseline requirements under the Kyoto Protocol. This will allow clients to
know the volume (quantity) and composition of the GHG emissions that they
are releasing into the atmosphere. The identification of gases from industrial
plants, oil and gas facilities or landfill emissions can be recorded on a
day to day basis to ensure proper on-going monitoring and performance. The
measurement of gases can be logged on to a data bank, so that clients can
view the "emissions monitoring data" from each project daily as it will be
posted on a website set up exclusively for the client's use.
GHG Emissions Reduction Credits and Certification
Canada's Offset System will provide "Offset Credits" for eligible
projects based on Greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions and removals. An "Offset
Credit" represents one ton of GHG emissions reduced or removed from
the atmosphere. The Offset System aims to encourage cost effective domestic
reductions or removals of GHG emissions in activities that will not be
covered by Federal Regulations of Industrial Greenhouse Gas emissions.
A project cannot be considered for the generation of "Offset Credits" until
a consistent approach to quantifying GHG reductions - an Offset System
Quanatification Protocol (OSQP) has been approved by Environment Canada.
OSQP must be used to quantify GHG reductions from projects applying to
GGSSI can establish
baseline GHG conditions by analyzing and calculating the volume and composition
of a company's GHG emissions before and after companies make improvements
to their plants and equipment in order to obtain the maximum amounts
of credits. GGSSI can then prepare the necessary reports and documentation
on behalf of the companies and submit this information to the Canadian
and International agencies responsible for certifying that the GHG emissions
are acceptable for credits certification and trading. In addition, GGSSI
provides on-going GHG emissions monitoring services and equipment to
ensure that companies meet standards and thereby obtain
the maximum obtainable credits each year. If desired, GGSSI can also
assist with the sale of these credits.

Coal Power Plant Pollution
The GGSSI Solution for Eliminating Emissions from Cement Plants using
Coal Fire Kiln
Cement Plant Coal Fire Kiln Pollution
Across North America, Cement Plants spew a continuous
stream of toxic pollutants into the air we breathe. As they burn coal
to produce cement, the kilns in these plants also release huge amounts
of toxic hydrogen chloride or hydrochloric acid (HCl) into the air. The
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that these Cement
Kilns (also known as Cement Plants) emit more than 15,000 tons of HCl
into our air each year.
HCl is irritating and corrosive to any tissue it contacts. It can cause
health problems ranging from throat irritation to swelling and spasm of
the throat and lung tissues, leading to suffocation and even death.
The GGSSI Solution for Ethanol Plants
Installing equipment in Ethanol Plant
Ethanol is produced at corn milling plants for use as a fuel additive in
gasoline (or for human consumption in liquors). The roughly 220 Ethanol
refineries in operation in North America are guilty of emitting thousands
of tons of pollution every year, including nitrogen oxide, one of the
key elements of smog. Ethanol plants must spend
millions to control air pollution, as
most are emitting volatile
organic compounds and carbon monoxide.
The GGSSI Solution for Landfill Gas
Landfill gas treatment in Paris
Landfill gas is produced when oxygen mixes with decomposing garbage. This
gas is mainly made up of carbon dioxide and methane. Methane is a natural
gas and an energy source, but is also a greenhouse gas (GHG). It is flammable
and explosive in certain concentrations, which is why it needs to be controlled.
Landfill sites begin producing landfill gas in their first year, and can
continue producing for up to half a century.
Landfill gas, a renewable resource, can be used to generate electricity
or to fuel industries. The methane produced by Canadian landfill sites
contains enough energy to heat more than 600,000 homes a year.
The GGSSI Landfill Gas Division offers more than sixteen years of experience
in the design, construction, operation and financing of landfill gas
plants, collection and flaring networks. It has developed unique techniques
for evaluating, recovering, managing and utilizing landfill gas resources.
Moreover, it provides assistance in the registration and Quantification
Protocol for Landfill Gas Capture and Combustion and accreditation of
carbon emission reduction credits in official records.
Traditional media-based treatment methods fall short in being able to produce
the purity of gas at the acceptable cost required by most power generation
projects. GGSSI Landfill Gas Treatment Technology dramatically lowers energy
First Nations Tree Farms
Afforestation is the process of establishing a forest on land that is not
a forest, or has not been a forest for a long time by planting trees
or their seeds. Tree plantation projects sequester CO2 through photosynthesis;
thus allowing for the creation of carbon credits.
The ability of trees to remove carbon from the atmosphere, coupled with
the potential new value of carbon, will increase the value of tree-planting
activities in Canada.
CO2 Soil Credits for Low Tillage
The conversion of land from forested to agricultural land can have a wide
range of negative effects as far as Greenhouse Gas emission is concerned.
Soil disturbance and increased rates of decomposition in converted soils
can both lead to emission of carbon to the atmosphere, with increased
soil erosion and leaching of soil nutrients further reducing the potential
for the area to act as a sink for carbon (a sink is defined as a process
or an activity that removes a Greenhouse Gas from the atmosphere).
What agricultural activities sequester CO2?
Principal conservation strategies such as Low Tillage, is
key to better balancing the soil carbon sink, and perhaps reversing recent
trends of loss of carbon from soils. Farming practices such as 'no-till'
and 'low tillage', whereby agricultural land is used with a reduction
in the soil disturbance and carbon loss which comes with ploughing, are
becoming more widespread and remains a key area of reducing
Greenhouse Gas emissions.
Carbon offsets with this protocol arise from the direct and indirect reductions
of Greenhouse Gas emissions through implementing no-till and Low Tillage
systems on agricultural lands.
