Revegetation projects capture carbon by permanently planting native trees to establish forest cover.
This method uses the Full Carbon Accounting Model (FullCAM) to work out the carbon captured by the growing trees, shrubs and debris (dead plant material).
This revegetation method follows the requirements for The Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) (Reforestation by Environmental or Mallee Plantings-FullCAM) Methodology Determination 2014.
Revegetation Project Eligibility
We were recently awarded a grant by the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund to research carbon sequestration potential in shelterbelt plantings in southern Australia.
Ai Carbon has recently worked with 10 different farms across the South Australian Mallee to:
- Develop shelterbelt designs that would be eligible for carbon credits under the Reforestation by Environmental or Mallee Plantings FullCAM Method
- Calculate potential carbon sequestration and revenue
- Assess likely impacts of plantings on each farm’s carbon account.
