Evaluation of the MINS Process for Carbon Credits


Carbon Assets Solutions (CAS) is a Canadian company that uses Mobile Inelastic Neutron Scattering (MINS) technology to determine carbon content in soils that may help producers access carbon credits and potentially offset their carbon footprint.

Olds College Centre for Innovation (OCCI) has partnered with CAS over the years on several projects. OCCI completed an evaluation on the autonomous operation of the Series 150 Unit, which is used to measure, record and verify sequestered carbon dioxide in soil. Additionally, the overall safety of the unit was assessed and recommendations for further autonomous development were provided. 

By identifying carbon sequestered in soil, producers can then use this data towards optimizing land management strategies to further aid in carbon sequestration and cash in on carbon credits using the data retrieved from the Series 150.
