Clean Development Mechanism (CDM)

A Brief Introduction
  • Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is a flexible financing mechanism for climate-friendly environmental investment.;
  • A mechanism for developed countries to support sustainable development while meeting their greenhouse gas (GHG) emission target;
  • The project are financed and supported by the sales from Certified Emission Reduction (CERs);
  • Eligible projects’ examples:WASTE: e.g. Landfill gas recovery, biogas recovery from Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME) and animal waste treatment etc.
  • OTHERS: e.g energy efficiency, renewable fuel substitution etc.
Our Services
Going through the process of CDM project development and application requires highly specialised skills and experiences. We are dedicated to provide “One-Stop” services, from developing and guiding GHG emission reduction projects step by step from start to finish for both project developers and buyers of CERs. We also undertake research and studies as well as capacity building for both the governmental and private sectors in dealing with CDM issues. Our specific services include:
  • Step by Step CDM Application Assistance ;
  • Documentations and Approvals;
  • Post Registration Monitoring and Verification;
  • Revision and Deviation of Monitoring Plan;
  • Carbon Trading Advisory Services;
  • Financial and Technology Feasibility;
  • Capacity Building, Training and Research.
Our Strengths and Track Records

Our understanding of the key success factors in CDM is one of the most important strengths of our team. Our experiences and knowledge of th local business culture and expectation will ensure our advice and services fulfill the client’s needs.

Successful CDM documentation requires skills and detailed understanding of technical aspects of the project in question. Eco-Ideal’s forerunning position as one of the leading consultants in waste management and renewable energy in Malaysia complements our provision of CDM related professional services to our clients. In this respect, we have executed numerous important baseline studies on GHG emissions, potential in the waste sectors and so forth.

We have assisted the first POME biogas project in the world to achieve registration with the United Nations CDM Executive Board. Currently, we are in process of developing PINs and PDDs for various projects. We have also assisted in the successful approval of a new CDM approved methodology (AM0057) for utilising empty fruit bunches (EFB) in pulp and paper industries.
