The article reports that according to a study published in the periodical "Journal of Industrial Ecology" almond byproducts can help in reduction of carbon footprint. Topics discussed include the study conducted by the University of California revealing that carbon footprint can be reduced by changing management practices, views of Sonja Brodt, academic coordinator at UC, on the use of biomass for lowering carbon footprint and orchards storing carbon.
