ACR Approves Pocosin Restoration Methodology

The American Carbon Registry (ACR) announced today that it has approved a milestone methodology developed by The Nature Conservancy and TerraCarbon to measure the greenhouse gas benefits of restoring peatlands in the southeast coastal plain of the United States. These peatlands, also referred to as pocosins (Algonquin name for "swamp on a hill"), store vast amounts of carbon in their soils which is emitted to the atmosphere when they are ditched and drained. The Nature Conservancy worked with TerraCarbon to develop the methodology and shepherd it through ACR’s stakeholder consultation and scientific peer-review approval process. The work was funded by Duke Energy, the Wildlife Conservation Society and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Other partners include United States Geological Survey, East Carolina University and Duke University. Read the ACR press release. Read the ACR methodology.
