MODESTO, Calif., July 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- A new, independent study by the University of California, Davis shows that re-using byproducts from producing and harvesting almonds is key to the industry's environmental impact and further reducing carbon emissions. The research, funded in part by a grant from the Almond Board of California, shows that almond trees accumulate and store significant amounts of carbon and that the almond industry is making progress toward becoming carbon neutral or even carbon negative with respect to greenhouse gases (GHG).
