Mikro-Tek is a carbon project developer and supplier of carbon offset credits, which are generated through the application of their proprietary technology in land use projects such as forestry.
Since 2003, Mikro-Tek has planted new forests on more than 7,500 hectares of unproductive land in Chile, and has applied their technology in reforestation projects in the Canadian boreal forest. Together these forest carbon sequestration projects have generated approximately 4.5 million offset credits that are now available to industry to help them meet their emission reduction targets in an environmentally sustainable way.
In 2010 Mikro-Tek registered their Chilean project with the United Nations. It was the first forestry project ever in Chile, seventh project in the world, and the first by a Canadian company to be approved under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) of the Kyoto Protocol.
