The French government has approved the first types of emission-saving project eligible to generate carbon credits under the Kyoto protocol's joint implementation scheme for sale on the international market. The projects are in sectors outside the EU emission trading scheme (EED 07/03/07). Credits will be generated from activities including methane capture from livestock farms, HFC reductions in the refrigeration and food industries and energy savings. The government estimates these projects will save five million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent during the period 2008-2012. See government press release.
