Compass Carbon Introduces New Software Platform for Carbon Sequestration Projects

VERO BEACH, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Compass Carbon, LLC today introduced its new Syntaq technology platform, a fully automated, data management, monitoring and analysis technology designed specifically for the needs of large-scale and complex carbon sequestration projects.

Syntaq replaces the manual data processing methods currently used in the industry with a secure, scalable and quickly deployable solution. Syntaq manages unparalleled levels of data required for large-scale carbon sequestration projects and provides the highest level of analytics in support of our credit issuances.

o Syntaq is capable of managing the vast amounts of data required for the development of large-scale Improved Forest Management (IFM) projects. For example, a single IFM project will require the management and analysis of terabytes of remote sensing data. Manual data processing methods currently utilized in the industry would require large numbers of separate databases or spreadsheets to be analyzed, making the development of large-scale projects cumbersome, slow and often impracticable.

o Syntaq allows Compass Carbon to bring large-scale projects to market much quicker; where others in the industry would require several years to reach the first credit issuance, Compass Carbon estimates 18 months. This allows for lower project risk as capital can be returned much quicker.

o Syntaq allows Compass Carbon to issue credits with enhanced quality profiles supported by unparalleled amounts of data. Rather than relying on a generalized forestry model, Syntaq-generated credits can be linked to specific groupings of trees in the project area. This level of transparency in tracking the provenance of project credits is unmatched in the industry.

o Syntaq also facilitates ongoing project monitoring, reporting and verification efforts by allowing verifiers direct access to unsurpassed amounts of well-organized project information that streamlines the verification process. This enhanced data management promotes lower project verification costs and faster turnaround time for verification efforts.

“Lack of cutting-edge technology prevents the carbon industry from developing projects that generate high-volume, high-quality carbon credits that the market demands. Manual data processing methods are simply too slow for timely large-scale project execution and are prone to computational errors, which can lead to an increased risk of credit invalidation and negatively impacts market acceptance of credits. Our proprietary, industry-leading Syntaq software platform gives us the ability to manage complex, large-scale developments and produce “AAA-rated” carbon credits with enhanced quality and security profiles.," said Shayne Reeb Compass Carbon's Director of Technology.

Compass Carbon, LLC is a carbon sequestration project developer and technology company focused primarily on large-scale, Improved Forest Management projects. Compass partners with clients to develop turn-key carbon sequestration programs that have environmental, social and financial benefits.

United States Space Force to Utilize Atmospheric Water Technology Announces RussKap Holdings

U.S. Marines operate the Maxim unit. Photo by Cpl. Rachel Young-Porter

The Maxim unit can generate up to 200 gallons of purified water a day with zero microbial contaminants and byproducts

The Tiffany unit, a popular choice of the military, can generate up to 12 gallons of purified water a day.

The U.S. Space Force becomes the latest in the branches of the military to invest in sustainable water-supply technology provided by RussKap Holdings.

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — RussKap Holdings, LLC has recently announced that the newest branch of the U.S. Military, Space Force, has placed orders for RussKap's Atmospheric Water Generation (AWG) units. With their increase of investment into sustainable initiatives, it seems that the U.S. Military is keen on utilizing the efficiency provided by AWG technology. In addition to serving as a sustainable and healthy source of pure drinking water, the convenience of water-from-air technology has greatly simplified logistics for water-supply.

Ed Russo, RussKap Holdings LLC CEO, remarked that "this growth continues RussKap's commitment to unlocking the benefits of atmospheric water generation and leading the charge in enabling a sustainable and truly purified source of drinking water."

Yehuda Kaploun, president of RussKap Holdings LLC, further added, “We have seen over the last year that the military intends to use the ozone-water purification systems, developed and patented by Altitude Water (formerly Trident Water Company) as a safe and secure process for atmospheric drinking water. The legacy systems of UV lamps and the use of chlorine to disinfect water are rendered obsolete when compared with the EPA recommended ozone-treatment of water. When we can generate and purify water on-demand without the need for a groundwater source, traditional forms of water supply have become archaic."

He also commented, “This contract with the U.S. Space Force is just the beginning of our successful venture with the latest branch of the military, and we will continue to demonstrate the advantages of atmospheric water generation.”

After Space Force reviewed many different AWG systems, RussKap's units were selected due to the high quality of the alkaline water produced, and the reliability of the technology. Additionally, the units are made in the USA and have proven worth as per testimonials from other military branches.

Now that Space Force is beginning to make use of this innovative technology, all branches of the military are set to be using atmospheric water technology.

In partnership with Altitude Water, Russkap Holding's water division has become universally recognized as leaders within the AWG community. With hundreds of units in place worldwide, their AWG technology is revolutionizing access to clean and pure drinking water, and effectively improving water-supply sustainability.

Pinpoint leak detection allows 1cm (3/8 inch) locational accuracy with each defect expressed in Gallons per Minute or Liters per Second.

Successful Trial in May 2021 Leads to Major Project to Help Prioritize Repairs and Identify Entry Points for Unwanted Infiltration

The project is expected to be completed by the end of August 2021 and is being overseen by the Department of Infrastructure, Housing & Enviroment, Operations & Transport.”

— Brad Weston, Director, Electro Scan (UK) Limited

LONDON, ENGLAND, August 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Electro Scan (UK) Ltd. announced that work began today on an 18.2 km (60,000 ft) sewer inspection project for the Government of Jersey, Channel Islands.

Awarded after a successful trial in May 2021, Electro Scan (UK) Ltd. had previously evaluated Clay, Concrete, and Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) for leaks either not found or recorded by legacy Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of August 2021 and is being overseen by the Department of Infrastructure, Housing & Environment, Operations & Transport, working with Ivan Jackson, Drainage Design, Graeme Le Monnier, Manager of Network Operations, Ed Verrechio, Operations Manager – Network and Compliance, and Andy Downie, Senior Civil Engineer.

"We are delighted to be back in the Channel Islands," stated Brad Weston, Director, Electro Scan (UK) Ltd. "And, we're delighted to have our newest member of the Electro Scan team, Chris Fisher, with us to be certified on both our van-based ES-600 and mobile ES equipment, conducting both roadside assessments and open-field inspections in Jersey."

Jersey's population is nearly 110,000 spread across 118.2km2 (45.6 sq mi) of land, or about 0.7 times the size of Washington, D.C.

Not part of the United Kingdom (UK) or European Union (EU), Jersey is a separate possession of the Crown, known as the British Isles, like the Isle of Man.

While high-resolution CCTV cameras have traditionally inspected sewage and stormwater pipes for defects, their inability to determine if cracks go through pipe walls, to assess whether joints are watertight, or to certify CIPP lined pipes as watertight, has led smarter utilities to adopt Electro Scan technology for unambiguous and unbiased leak detection and to certify repairs are leak-free.

Electro Scan's machine-intelligent, non-acoustic, non-visual technology is unaffected by water levels inside of pipes, grease, tides, groundwater conditions, noise, silt, or visual impediments. Instead, automatically geocoding and measuring all pathways where water can flow in and out of a pipe.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has recently been shown to help overcome subjective manual CCTV coding and reporting errors.

Unfortunately, AI programs utilize the same frame-by-frame video files produced by the most advanced cameras which carry the same latent drawbacks as manually-based CCTV, resulting in false condition assessment reporting.

As a result, newer technology from Electro Scan was needed to correctly assess the structural integrity and water tightness of underground pipes.

Founded in 2014, Electro Scan (UK) Ltd. maintains its UK headquarters in Covent Gardens, London and earlier this year opened its first UK Electro Scan Service Centre at Unit 15 Kembrey Trade Centre, Aspen Close, Swindon SN2 8AJ.

Jersey is the largest and southernmost of the UK's Channel Islands, with elevations ranging from sea level to 143 meters (469 ft) above sea level.

On 10 October 2008, Jersey recorded its highest tide with a height of 12.3 meters (40.45 ft), with Super Tides sometimes lasting up to five (5) consecutive days at a time and routinely reaching 11 meters (36 ft).

By comparison the Bay of Fundy on the Atlantic coast of North America, between the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, and the US state of Maine, is known for having the highest tidal range in the world reaching 14.5 meters (47.5 ft).

In May 2021, Electro Scan performed a number of side-by-side benchmarks comparing Electro Scan's Focused Electrode Leak Location (FELL) and CCTV video inspections.

In every case, CCTV failed to locate or quantify any leak locations while FELL automatically identified hundreds of missed leaks at pipe wall cracks, joints, and service tap connections.

Representing actionable data for prioritizing repairs & rehabilitation, Electro Scan's trial found that defects in 12 of 34 pipes surveyed contributed eighty-percent (80%) of total defect flows.

Results were available within minutes after each scan using Electro Scan's CriticalSewers® cloud application; then displayed in Innovyze® InfoAsset® Planner via the jointly-developed Application Programming Interface (API) for additional business analytics and risk assessment.

Additionally, Electro Scan was able to test the water tightness of a CIPP sewer rehabilitation, confirming Jersey's successful lining work.

Chris Chesworth, Electro Scan (UK) Ltd., returns to Jersey to oversee daily scanning.

H1 Performance Solidifies AirCarbon Exchange’s International Reach and Position as a Leading Global Carbon Exchange

The exchange has executed transactions representing over 3.6 million carbon credits in the first half of 2021.

ABU DHABI, LONDON, NEW YORK, SINGAPORE, August 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — AirCarbon Exchange (ACX), the world’s first fully digital exchange for voluntary carbon credits with real-time trading and settlement, has executed transactions representing 3,603,284 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2e) during the first 6 months of 2021. Most of the trading on the exchange has been on the CET (CORSIA Eligible Token) contract, making it one of the world’s most traded carbon contracts. Open interest on the exchange continues to increase, from 854,366 tCO2e as at June 30, 2021 to 1,115,266 tCO2e currently.

ACX has solidified its international reach by attracting over 130 clients across 29 countries. In the second half of 2021, ACX will continue to expand its global footprint with offices in Abu Dhabi, London and Canada. During this first half, ACX has doubled its personnel and continues to expand and strengthen its team.

ACX has also grown its ecosystem of partnerships with companies at the forefront of innovation in the carbon industry, strengthening the quality, service and product offerings on the exchange. ACX is the first exchange to integrate BeZero’s carbon ratings to assess the quality of voluntary carbon credits. The exchange has also partnered with Abaxx to develop carbon solutions for the LNG market and with Flovtec to enhance liquidity of tokens on the exchange. Additional partnerships include established carbon market entities such as Redshaw Advisors, BLOCK C and EQAO.

Thom McMahon, CEO and Co-Founder of AirCarbon Exchange said: “It has been an incredibly exciting time since we started trading in January. We have grown significantly and it is clear that the exchange offers much needed transparency and liquidity to the voluntary carbon market. Our client list continues to grow and we have partnered with some excellent innovators in the industry. We won’t be slowing down any time soon.”

Bill Pazos, Managing Director and Co-Founder of AirCarbon Exchange said: “First and foremost I want to thank the 130+ companies that have helped us get to this milestone. Their endorsement has made our CET contract one of the most traded carbon contracts in the world. Our intent has always been to become a global marketplace for carbon. By deploying contracts around market demand, we take friction out of the carbon markets. Investors, previously on the side lines, are discovering that it is now easy to gain exposure to the carbon asset class. Bringing price transparency and increasing liquidity is our driving force.”

Even in light of rock-solid evidence that debunks the myths supporting the removal of Klamath River dams, some media outlets are sitting-on the facts. WHY?

Geologic and engineering evidence prove there was no Salmon migration on the Klamath River past Ward Canyon for thousands of years, the present-day site of Copco 1 dam”

— William E. Simpson II – Naturalist

YREKA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Key Premise and reason promoted by advocates for removing the Klamath River dams, as proposed by the shell corporation, Klamath River Renewal Corporation's ('KRRC') is FAKE :

1) Geologic and engineering evidence prove there was no Salmon migration past Ward Canyon for thousands of years (site of Copco 1 dam).

Salmon couldn't have migrated past the series of high natural lava dams that blocked fish migration at Ward Canyon for many millennia. Ward Canyon is the present-day site of Copco 1 dam.

Under ideal conditions, salmon can jump a maximum of 12-feet. So even the smallest of the series of natural lava dams, standing at 31-feet-tall, would easily stop Salmon migration.

The highest of the series of natural lava dams that blocked fish migration at Ward Canyon stood for thousands of years.

That lava dam was 130-feet tall, which was as high as the current man-made Copco 1 dam, and that ancient 130-foot-tall lava dam formed a lake ('Clammittee Lake') equivalent in size to the modern-day Copco Lake, which sits in the same foot-print of the ancient Clammittee Lake.

In 1911, when the famous engineer and dam builder J.C. Boyle arrived at Ward Canyon on the Klamath River to begin construction of the Copco 1 dam, he saw and recorded the *existing* 31-foot tall natural lava dam that was holding-back the Klamath River into a large natural lake called 'Clammittee Lake'.

This natural 31-foot tall lava dam and Clammittee Lake had existed for thousands of years and into modern times (1911). As a result of that longstanding lake, a myriad of lifeforms established habitats in and around Clammittee Lake.

If these critical habitats are suddenly removed by removing the dams and draining the lakes, that longstanding intricate web-of-life will collapse, resulting in the loss of untold numbers of rare, threatened and endangered species.

As Geology and recorded documents from 1911 show, Nature, not man, ordained that fish would not migrate past this point on the Klamath River.

Given the foregoing facts, it becomes very clear that even the notion of installing fish-ladders in this area is ill-advised!

Nature had barred fish migration for millennia past Ward Canyon, so a sudden change in that, would likely create a whole new set of problems!

These natural fish barriers arguably allowed what is known as allopatric speciation to occur, and the resulting 'Redband trout', which are actually a land-locked salmon that are most closely related to steelhead, and not to sockeye or coho salmon. Interestingly the natural range for Redband trout on the Klamath River is exclusively 'up-river' from Ward Canyon according to experts.

Redband trout can reach 24-30 inches in size and up to 30-pounds in weight. As a result of their size, in the 1800's fisherman called them salmon, because they resembled salmon. In the archeological digs of the Klamath and Modoc tribes, no salmon heads or jaw bones have been found, only body bones.

It is well known that the largest indigenous tribe in the area of Ward Canyon was the Shasta Tribe. In fact, the entirety of the portion of the Klamath River where the Klamath dams are located are on the lands that were exclusively inhabited by the Shasta.

The Shasta, and no other tribe, fished the area immediately above and below the lava dams on the Klamath River, and they caught both anadromous and non-anadromous salmonoids.

Anadromous Salmon were traded to the Klamath and Modoc tribes by the Shasta. These anadromous Salmon had their heads removed and they were taken on poles to other tribes for trade.

This of course explains the archaeological results of no heads or jaws of anadromous salmon on tribal lands of the Klamath and Modoc tribes.

On top of the foregoing hard science and engineering evidence, we now also have a board member of the Klamath River Renewal Corporation, Mr. Glen Spain saying that removing dams is about money, not salmon!

More about that here: https://www.einnews.com/pr_news/546614530/compelling-facts-condemn-krrc-s-proposed-klamath-river-dam-removal-plan

It's important to note that the non-profit shell corporation, Klamath River Renewal Corporation (KRRC) was created in full cooperation with PacificCorp as a means to shield PacificCorp from the massive liabilities that are associated to what is easily the most risk-laden dam removal project ever proposed!

2) The Klamath River Basin Compact Act (the 'Act') is controlling federal law;

This Congressional Act provides for 'beneficial uses' of the water impounded by the dams to the People of Jackson County and Oregon, and Siskiyou County and California.

Siskiyou County California and Jackson County Oregon were signatories to the ACT, and arguably are material signatories to the Act, as well as Congress and the President of the United States of America.

In regard to distribution of water under the Act, priorities in order are:

(a) Domestic use,
(b) Irrigation use,
(c) Recreational use, including use for fish and wildlife,
(d) Industrial use,
(e) Generation of hydroelectric power,
(f) Such other uses as are recognized under the laws of the state involved.

(Note: Industrial use arguably refers to water for wildfire fire-suppression; and even though it is not codified, the dams do in fact provide material flood control protections for communities and infrastructure down-river from the dams)

3) The loss of the lakes and critical shoreline ecosystems and habitats will devastate the resident threatened and endangered species of flora and fauna.

The loss of this critical habitat, which was established over millennia in and around 'Clammittee Lake', will also adversely affect resident and migratory birds that are strictly protected from 'incidental taking' by California law and Assembly Bill AB-454, Migratory birds: California Migratory Bird Protection Act.

https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_id=201920200AB454

According to a 2006 Department of Interior publication; there are hundreds of species of flora and fauna, and that flora and fauna will be placed at risk if Copco and Iron Gate lakes are drained:

The eleven-miles of the Klamath River Canyon where these lakes are located contains an amazing diversity of wildlife, including 89 species of birds, dozens of reptiles and amphibians, several species of fish and 71 species of plants including trees, grasses and forbs. Some species of this localized flora and fauna are threatened or endangered.

These, and other facts related to the impacts of dam removal on the environment and ecosystem have been understated and obfuscated by dam-removal proponents, largely made-up of the minority-consensus groups and fishing-zealots supporting KRRC's reckless plan.

4) Copco and Iron Gate Lakes are formed by two of the four Klamath River dams. They hold a reserve of 45-Billion gallons of fresh water that is desperately needed, during what experts predict will be a period of extreme drought caused by Climate Change. The critical reserve of fresh water is essential for fighting catastrophic wildfires.

These two lakes hold a reserve of 45-Billion gallons of precious fresh water that is desperately needed for domestic wells (drinking, bathing and cooking).

Copco and Iron Gate lakes also provide a critical source of easily accessible water for firefighting aircraft (airplanes that scoop water and helicopters) tankers and fire-engines.

5) The budget for KRRC's proposed Klamath River dam-removal project is seriously inadequate!

There is no doubt that the half-decade-old obsolete $450-million (so-called “guaranteed budget”) budget that KRRC has pitched, is grossly inadequate.

A more realistic budget, is closer to $900-Million given the inflation over the half-a-decade since the now obsolete budget was calculated, coupled with huge cost increases (doubling) for construction related costs over the past year (2020-2021) due to COVID economics.

There is also no doubt whatsoever that the proposed project is laden with huge unprecedented risks, as never seen before, at every phase. And those risks and massive liabilities are like a hot potato that Pacific Corp wanted to dump. And now it seems they may have; right into the laps of California and Oregon taxpayers.

And, in a recent Decision and Order by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (‘FERC’), item number 34 warns that:

“As part of the January 13, 2021 transfer application, the States of Oregon and California have agreed to be co-licensees with the Renewal Corporation; thus, the States will not be shielded from liability.”

We have already seen smaller project outcomes that spell disaster for the massively underfunded KRRC dam removal budget, which puts Oregon and California taxpayers on the hook, for what could be a massive financial liability at a time when state budgets are strained to the max from COVID and wildfire disasters.

History of a much smaller dam removal project cost over-runs; a red flag for the larger more complex Klamath dam removal project.

According to the Penninsula Daily News in Port Angeles Washington:

The estimated cost of removing the Elwha and Glines Canyon dams from the Elwha River has increased from the original cost projection of $135 million in 2001, to later projected cost of $308-million.

Another accounting of the ‘projected costs’ regarding removal of the two Elwha dams compared to the actual costs should be a red-flag for the costs of the much larger and far more ambitious project and estimated budge of $450-million to remove four Klamath River dams:

“Removal of the Elwha Dam began in September 2011 and was finished in spring 2012, ahead of schedule. Removal of the second dam, the Glines Canyon Dam, was completed on August 26, 2014. The dam removal process was originally projected to last two and a half to three years. The estimated cost of removing both dams was $40 to $60 million. The total cost of the Elwha River restoration is approximately $351.4 million.” ~ Wiki

In the foregoing example, the smaller and simpler 2-dam removal project compared to the four dams on the Klamath River, the costs on that project tripled from what was originally projected.

And in the case of Elwha River dams, the potential for environmental, ecological and private property damages were far less.

The budget for the removal of the four (4) dams on the Klamath River was calculated using economic costs and metrics that were already many years old prior to the beginning of COVID economics, which began in 2020.

Of course, anyone in business knows that if you projected costs are based on a ‘best case’ outcome, and a mediocre, or worse yet, a bad outcome evolves, costs, damages and liabilities can escalate very quickly and steeply.

There’s no doubt that dam construction, and dam destruction requires road construction, bridges, trucking, heavy equipment, materials, labor, fuels and insurance. Therefore, the following comparison is valid.

The Associated General Contractors of America has issued a new report and graph-analyses showing the huge impacts that COVID economics (period April 2020 thru February 2021) has had on skyrocketing costs related to construction projects.

The Associated General Contractors of America study exemplifies the huge cost increases and long delays that have only recently occurred, and certainly years-after KRRC’s budget projections for their dam removal project were calculated.

For the purpose of cost-impact analyses, the COVID economics study began in April 2020 thru February 2021. (https://www.agc.org/sites/default/files/AGC 2021 Inflation Alert – Ver1.1.pdf).

The Q-1 2021 Associated General Contractors of America report stated:

"The construction industry is currently experiencing an unprecedented mix of steeply rising materials prices, snarled supply chains, and staffing difficulties, combined with slumping demand that is keeping many contractors from passing on their added costs”.

This brand-new report from the Associated General Contractors of America report spells financial disaster for KRRC’s project.
And the burden of that disaster will surely fall upon the weary shoulders of California and Oregon taxpayers.

All things considered, and based upon what we do know, a budget in the realm of $900-million dollars would be in line with proper updates and adjustments to the old budget of only $450-million.
