Abstract

The basic idea of becoming Carbon Neutral or Carbon Negative is to reduce greenhouse emissions from direct and indirect sources such as electricity, transportation, solid waste, sewage waste, etc. These are potential sources of CO2 emissions which release a large amount of CO2 into the atmosphere. The accumulation of CO2 causes a serious impact on health and the environment. Also, there is a high cost for the generation of electricity which is uneconomical to our college. Following are the tasks which need to be accomplished to become Carbon Neutral: To identify various potential direct or indirect sources of carbon emission in JSPM campus which can be processed on the alternate energy source. •To find out the CO2 equivalent of each identified sources. • Working out on an alternate solution for the identified source within the existing conditions. • To determine the techno-economic feasibility of suggested techniques. This paper discusses the various economical steps to reduce the Greenhouse Gases and they are implemented around the campus. These plans include • ELECTRICITY- Analyze various electrical equipment and find their overall CO2 emissions per year and suggest feasible solutions to reduce the content of CO2 by the installation of solar panels and photovoltaic cells. • VEHICULAR EMISSION- Reduce the vehicular pollution using solutions like carpooling systems within the campus and replacing petrol and diesels by CNG’s. • SEWAGE WASTE- The CO2 emissions can be reduced by various techniques like reducing the BOD of the sewage treatment water.
