    The carbon calculator currently provides tasks on food, shopping, and entertainment items. In daily life, people engage in carbon reduction just need to scan electronic invoices or store cloud invoices. And the system will automatically verify whether user's purchasing behavior meets the tasks.
    1. Image recognition: Scan QR code of invoices to see if each consumption items meets with carbon reduction requirement.
    2. Cloud computing and data interface technology: Using the integrated electronic invoice service platform of Ministry of Finance, the cloud invoices that public input in will be checked if it meets the carbon reduction conditions.

    Net Zero Institute
    Kaohsiung is a city based on manufacturing industries, such as steel, petrochemicals, electronics, screws and other industries. Each of them faces different requirements of carbon fees, CBAM, RE100, and global supply chains. While approaching to 2050 net-zero era, both industries and governments require lots of carbon management and green talents, thus Kaohsiung set up a Net Zero Academy in November 2023. It cooperates with international inspection agencies to offer ISO standard certificate courses. It also gathers academia and industry experts to offer general and technical courses and will continue to cooperate with universities and industries to set a complete net-zero talent foundation for Kaohsiung and build up a net-zero industry chain.

    Reuse of Incineration Bottom Ash
    To handle garbage properly can reduce epidemic diseases. Every year, the city produces about 180,000 metric tons of bottom ashes. Garbage after processing, the incineration bottom ash must pass through dioxin, particle size, impurities and heavy metals tests before it can be made into incineration recycled pellets and be used in public projects as a replacement of natural sand and gravel. It can also be used in cement products such as bricks, New Jersey guardrails and edge stones. The use of incineration recycled pellets in 2023 was 162,000 metric tons, the highest in Taiwan, and estimated to reduce 2,219 metric tons of carbon emissions. The target for 2024 is reducing 2,603 metric tons of carbon emissions.
