Can the Sage Metering thermal mass flow meter be used for carbon credit trading?
Carbon Credit Trading
One carbon credit represents the right for an emitter to release one ton of carbon dioxide or one ton of greenhouse gas (with a one-ton carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e)).
The Sage thermal mass flow meter plays a critical role in carbon credit trading. The flow meter is used in waste to energy projects, methane destruction credits, and carbon credit verification. There is a wealth of information on our site that will help get your questions answered, see Carbon Credits and Thermal Flow. Meters.
Flow Meter In-Situ Calibration
A key consideration when selecting a flow meter for carbon credits is that various protocols require quarterly calibration inspection. An advantage of the Sage meter is its ability to perform an onsite calibration verification without removing it from service, or requiring additional equipment. This test compares both in-process data and original calibration data, which verifies that the electronics and sensor are accurate, and the meter is in calibration.
