Pilot projects

atmosfair uses pilot projects to test new, innovative approaches to CO2 reduction. The majority of these very small projects provide real CO2 savings, although atmosfair does not use them to offset donors' CO2 emissions. atmosfair contributes to the majority of the projects by providing start-up funding.
