Trenchless pipe repair aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissionsTrenchless pipe repair aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions<div class="ExternalClass1050B7F428744798A55778D2041FC195"> <p>Metro Vancouver has developed a tool for member jurisdictions to calculate the amount of greenhouse gas emissions avoided by a 'trenchless pipe' repair, which can be claimed for greenhouse gas reduction credits.</p><p>In a typical trenchless repair, a new pipe or flexible pipe liner is drawn through the path of an existing pipe. This approach significantly reduces diesel fuel use (from equipment and trucks) by avoiding conventional open-cut trenching.</p><p>Trenchless pipe repair also results in fewer road closures and traffic disruption, and in some cases can result in substantial cost savings.</p><p>Metro Vancouver, with the support of the provincial government, worked with the North American Society for Trenchless Technology (BC Chapter) to develop the greenhouse gas emissions calculator.</p><p>The calculator was recently used by the City of New Westminster to evaluate 115 trenchless projects completed between 2012 and 2014. The evaluation showed that greenhouse gas emissions were reduced by 70% compared with a conventional approach, and the city intends to claim the avoided emissions as a greenhouse gas reduction credit as part of its annual climate action reporting.</p><p>Member jurisdictions who increased the use of this technology for capital projects can reduce the region's contribution to climate change, and support municipal obligations under the BC Local Government Carbon Neutral Framework.</p></div>http://heimat-deutschland.info/metroupdate/PublishingImages/trenchless.jpg2017-05-25T07:00:00ZGP0|#3b8f3b80-a7ab-4371-9209-a63c0676026a;L0|#03b8f3b80-a7ab-4371-9209-a63c0676026a|Issue 32;GTSet|#d14ffe11-45dc-48fb-8684-ff109cf15a74<div class="ExternalClass781A152838FF4E719EA16FB18F3A4B0E">Metro Vancouver has developed a tool for member jurisdictions to calculate the amount of greenhouse gas emissions avoided by a 'trenchless pipe' repair, which can be claimed for greenhouse gas reduction credits.</div>0
