GEObjects Ltd., in partnership with the Federal Ministry of Environment, has trained stakeholders in the environmental sector on how to apply environmental analysis software, “Sphere,’’ to stimulate carbon flows in industries.
The Managing Director of GEObjects Ltd., Mr Mike Wood, said this in Abuja on Wednesday at the Environmental Innovation Symposium on Application of Environmental Analytic Software for Nigeria.
Wood said that the purpose of the training was to bring the sophisticated environmental analytic software to everyone who needs to use it.
“The key product of GEObjects is Sphere, which is a carbon simulator and analysis system – a tool that can simulate carbon flows in industrial, agricultural, land management, and urban scenarios and model outcomes.
“These results are useful for understanding greenhouse gas performance as well as carbon outcomes, and forming environmental, economic, industrial and energy policy.
“Businesses may report carbon performance, and government can perform greenhouse gas reporting and manage commercial compliance or form regulatory mechanisms,’’ the managing director said.
Dr Peter Tarfa, the Director of Climate Change, Federal Ministry of Environment, said that environmental innovation symposium was organised for stakeholders to discuss how the software tool could serve as carbon simulator and analysis system in the country.
