In September 1 new CDM project was submitted from India.

8 CDM project got its registration action in September, bringing the total number of registered CDM project up to 7740, or 92% of the 8456 of the CDM projects that are alive. Only 708 projects are still at validation and 8 have requested registration.

For 2219 CDM projects the DOEs terminated validation, and for 276 the DOEs gave a negative validation. 273 projects were rejected by the EB, and 64 projects were withdrawn.

September had a monthly issuance of 10.3 MCERs. The total issuance is now 1721 MCERs.  The average issuance success is 88.3%. 2946 Registered projects have now got issuance; this is an increase of 10 MCERs compared to last month.

Voluntary cancellation of CERs has now increased to 14.6 MCERs. In South Korea CERs can be converted into Korean Carbon Units if they are from CDM projects in South Korea and cancelled voluntarily. This already happened for 9.9 MCERs.

In the "Analysis" and "Time" sheets we have changed the figures and tables from showing the expected issuance of CERs until 2012 according to the PDDs to the expected issuance in the second crediting period (2013-2020).

We have updated the Pipelines to include all projects that have used automatic additionality.
