Pool Acceptance Criteria
Currently, two Toucan Carbon Pools exist, BCT (Base Carbon Tonne) and NCT (Nature Carbon Tonne).
In order for bridged credits (TCO2s) to be added to one of the pools, they must fulfill certain acceptance criteria.
If you plan on bridging credits in order for them to be added to either of the Toucan Carbon Pools, please make absolutely sure, you double-checked the credits' eligibility to enter the pools (see below) prior to retiring the credits in the originating registry.
