Environmental Business Journal Recognizes SCS for Growth and Innovation for Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Mitigation
Long Beach, CA — Each year, Climate Change Business Journal recognizes outstanding business performance in the climate change industry with its CCBJ Business Achievement Awards. The Journal recently announced that its 8th annual business achievement award for Greenhouse Gas Mitigation services will be awarded to SCS Engineers.
Nominations for the awards were submitted to CCBJ in October through December 2015, by industry, government, non-profits and the broader climate change community. Award winners are determined by a committee of CCBJ staff and CCBJ editorial advisory board members.
The awards will be presented at an official awards ceremony during the Environmental Industry Summit XIV to take place in San Diego in March 2016.
SCS Engineers is a pioneer in our nation’s efforts to reduce GHG emissions in order to help combat global warming. SCS proactively pursues the development of markets in which major sources of methane (e.g., oil and gas industry, landfills, dairies, etc.) can generate and sell GHG credits by voluntarily installing methane recovery systems and selling the methane as fuel.
Methane is 25 times more powerful than carbon dioxide in terms of its greenhouse effect. Capturing and destroying these emissions can have significant environmental benefits. Simply destroying methane via power generation or sequestration can diminish its GHG potential by 95 percent. Even greater benefits are available if the methane is used as renewable energy to offset natural gas or coal-fired power generation.
“Our clients provide valuable services to society; we are pleased to assist them while also helping to minimize adverse environmental and economic impacts,” states Ray Huff, an SCS Vice President, and National GHG Expert. “We are gratified to be recognized for our work providing solutions to control GHG emissions.”
