Voluntary cancellation of CERs has now increased to 29.9 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 16.9 MCERs. Same story in Colombia where voluntary cancellation has reached 1.4 MCERs.
