Lenz Composting

Stanwood, Washington

Turning Trash to Treasure in the Pacific Northwest
The Lenz Composting project is situated on 150+ acres in Stanwood, Snohomish County, Washington. The project provides compost services to residents and farmers in the region and the local air authority points to Lenz Compost as an exemplary facility in the region.

The context
Landfilling of food waste and food-soiled paper results in the anaerobic decomposition of the waste, releasing methane, a potent greenhouse gas. Composting is the natural process of recycling this food waste into a valuable fertilizer that can enrich soil and plants. Composting speeds up the organic decomposition process by providing an ideal environment for bacteria, fungi, and other decomposing organisms to do their work. The resulting matter, which often ends up looking like fertile garden soil, is called compost and it is rich in nutrients and can be used for gardening, horticulture, and agriculture.

The project
Lenz Composting receives food waste (feedstocks) at their site, where it is deposited in a covered receiving building. The feedstocks are mixed with bulking agents, if needed, and mixed in a slow-speed shredder. The mixed materials are then processed through a picking station where contaminants are removed manually. The material is then moved directly to the Aerated Static Pile composting process.

The benefits
The project avoids the release of dangerous methane gas into the atmosphere while producing high-quality organic compost with a number of positive environmental attributes. The compost’s organic matter and nutrients improve the water retention capacity of the soil, allowing for the conservation of water resources and improved plant growth and vigor.

Madre de Dios Amazon REDD+

Madre De Dios, Peru

Reducing Deforestation Risks and Helping Establish Sustainable Forest Management

The Madre de Dios Amazon REDD+ project is located in Tahuamanu Province in the Madre de Dios region of Peru, a region of great biodiversity and home to many varieties of endangered wildlife species.

The context
The project area is part of the Ecological Corridor in the Peruvian Amazon, one of the world’s most important biodiversity hotspots. It has become vulnerable to deforestation due to two major factors: the Interoceanic Highway and major population pressure. Completion of the highway connecting western Brazil and eastern Peru has given farmers access to previously remote parts of the rainforest. High agricultural commodity prices have led to a greater economic incentive to expand farming operations in the region, making the timely preservation of forests in the region all more important.

The forests in this area are very important in terms of biodiversity conservation since it provides habitat to four endangered rainforest species and eleven endangered wildlife species, including Cedar, Mahogany, Wild fig, Leche caspi, jaguar, Red howler monkey, Giant anteater, Giant armadillo, Lowland tapir, Red-and-green macaw, Scarlet macaw, Blue-throated Piping Guan, Razor-billed curassow, Sanborn’s squirrel, and the Amazon dwarf squirrel.

The project
The Madre de Dios Amazon REDD+ project reduces the pressure for lands by the local population in the 239,459-acre project area and guarantees sustainable forestry management. The project also finances initiatives that provide an alternative livelihood to subsistence farming and illegal logging, which both rely on deforestation.

The benefits
The environmental benefits include the protection of Peruvian Amazon rainforest, a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, habitat preservation, and the monitoring of endangered species. From a social viewpoint, the project creates jobs and protects the Yine and Huitot communities, which are native to the area.

Sustainable Forest Management, Carbon Sequestration, and Habitat Preservation

The McCloud River Project is a conservation-based forest management project in the Pondosa Forest, located along the border between Siskiyou and Shasta counties in northern California. The project area covers approximately 20,159 acres and is adjacent to Shasta National Forest near McCloud Falls.

The context
This area is a mixed conifer forest, dominated by white fir, incense cedar, ponderosa pine, Douglas fir, and sugar pine, with species of dogwood, hazel, whitethorn, and golden chinquapin. The forest provides a habitat for deer, bobcat, cougar, badger, trout, and black bear.

The project
The project is guided by the terms of the conservation easements, which have explicit goals aimed at maintaining and enhancing the mixed conifer forests. These goals include having a complex, multistory forest with a variety of densities and heights throughout the property, composed of the native species currently on the site, including, specifically hardwoods as well as conifers. The easements also prohibit the introduction of non-native species. Rare or sensitive habitats such as wet meadows, riparian areas, and aspen groves are also given protection.

The benefits
Sustainable forest management increases carbon stores. Other benefits achieved include the protection of local water quality and habitat protection for sensitive species while responsible resourcing of the timber supports the local economy.

Methane Recovery Project Aben

Wanroij, Netherlands

Making Clean, Green Energy from Animal Waste
Methane Recovery Project Aben is a combined heat and power plant that uses biogas produced by methane from the manure of livestock, resulting in electricity for the local power grid. The project is located in the town of Wanroij in The Netherlands.

The context
Agricultural operations have been shaping the landscape and the way of life in the Dutch province of North Brabant for several hundred years. This is a mostly rural region with relatively little heavy industry, and where the agro-swine industry plays a significant role. The concentration of livestock in this area has led to a situation in which the resulting animal waste can no longer be disposed of in the traditional manner – storing in open lagoons to later spread as fertilizer on farm fields. As the waste breaks down in these open lagoons, it emits methane, which is 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas. Thus the need for responsible animal waste treatment and the production of biogas.

Biogas is the mixture of gases produced by the breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen, primarily consisting of methane and carbon dioxide. Biogas can be produced from agricultural waste, manure, municipal waste, plant material, sewage, green waste, or food waste. Biogas is a source of renewable energy.

The project
Methane Recovery Project Aben is based on a livestock farm in the town of Wanroij. At this farm, animal waste is collected from its own stock and the many pig farms in southeastern Netherlands. The waste is converted into biogas, which powers irrigation pumps that previously used diesel fuel. It also fuels electric generators. Electricity in excess of the farm’s needs goes into the local power grid. Waste heat from the process helps dry any remaining animal waste, making it more suitable as fertilizer.

The benefits
In addition to preventing dangerous methane from entering the atmosphere, Methane Recovery Project Aben improves the local soil and air quality. It also creates sustainable, long-term employment in the region and provides nutrient-rich fertilizer to farms in the area. The project also displaces the need for fossil fuel power generation in the province of North Brabant.

Middle Deschutes River

Bend, Oregon

Reducing Deforestation Risks and Developing Family Agriculture in Symbiosis with the Forest

The Middle Deschutes River is a 35-mile section of the iconic Deschutes River that flows between the city of Bend and Lake Billy Chinook, Oregon.

The context
In this section of the river, deep canyons and public lands comprise one of the most scenic desert canyons in the state of Oregon. Red-band trout, otters, ospreys, and myriad wildlife species inhabit this section of the river and depend on clean, healthy flows of water. However, historically most of the flow to the Middle Deschutes River was diverted near the City of Bend to serve agricultural needs throughout central Oregon.

The project
Thanks to partnerships with businesses, the Deschutes River Conservancy, and local irrigation districts, new solutions have been developed to restore over 115 cubic feet per second of flow to the Middle Deschutes during the summer months. The purchase of Water Restoration Certificates® helps provide funding that allows the Deschutes River Conservancy to negotiate lease agreements with irrigators and keep these flows in the river, fostering a healthy ecosystem for people, plants, and wildlife.

The benefits
While agency-led monitoring efforts are underway to assess the positive impacts of this restored flow, fly-fishing guides and biologists who regularly visit this area continue to report improved populations of Red-band trout.
