The Hydrologic Ceramic Water Filter Production and Distribution Project in Cambodia is an ongoing Clean Development Mechanism project in the Kingdom of Cambodia that has been independently verified by The Gold Standard. As fuel use for boiling water in Cambodia predominantly comes from combustion of non-renewable biomass, project activity generates emission reductions through energy zero Water Purifiers that provide access to clean drinking water in rural households in Cambodia.
Each unit has been produced by Hydrologic Social Enterprise Ltd. and is shown to remove 99.99% of bacteria. Over the seven years crediting periods, Ceramic Water Purifiers will be provided to 900,000 to 1.7 million people across 168,000 to 315,000 households also contributing to job creation from dispersal and training on use.In addition to supporting the UN Millennium Development Goal of halving the proportion of the population without sustainable access to safe drinking water and sanitation, this project also reduces depletion of natural resources related to the cutting of trees, relieves female children and mothers of families from collecting firewood to boil water, improves indoor air quality to reduce risk of ill-health in women and children, reduces daily fuel costs on low-income regions and provides beneficial employment to local residents during the established distribution, monitoring and replacement phases of the project.

The Biogas Program for the Animal Husbandry Sector of Vietnam is an emission reduction project in Vietnam that has been independently verified by The CDM Gold Standard. The purpose of the project activity is to further develop the commercial and structural deployment of domestic biogas to promote the long-term utilization of renewable energy produced in an environmentally compatible and economically viable way.
The project generates emission reductions by leveraging the available resources generated from agriculture to create biogas from renewable animal manure. Each biogas plant is a fixed dome and can range from 4-50 square meters to have a capacity for 20-300 kgs of manure daily. The biogas collected is used to replace conventional fuels like firewood, coal, LPG, kerosene, and can power biogas lamps as an alternative to conventional light bulbs. Once the manure has been digested, it also serves as a nutritious source of fertilizer to return the energy back to the soil.
Over 180,000 biogas plants will be installed throughout 57 of Vietnam’s 63 provinces and over 2,500 permanent jobs will be created in communities by 2018. In addition to its emission reduction activity, the project will generate an alternative to synthetic fertilizers, improve sanitary conditions on farms, improve household air quality, and reduce environmental load on surface waters.
The project received the Humanitarian Award at the World Energy Forum in 2012 and an Ashden Award for Sustainability in 2010.
