2002 Report of the Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heat Pumps Technical Options Committee (RTOC)

by Earthprint Ltd

In the last decade, the refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump industry made tremendous technical progress and complied with the Montreal Protocol through phasing out CFCs and in several applications, HCFCs as well. The mobile air conditioning and the demestic refrigeration industries have shifted rapidly from CFC-12 to non-ODS ...;

Air Pollution Control Technology Handbook

by CRC Press/Taylor & Francis Group

In the debate over pollution control, the price of pollution is a key issue. But which is more costly: clean up or prevention? From regulations to technology selection to equipment design, Air Pollution Control Technology Handbook serves as a single source of information on commonly used air pollution control technology. It covers environmental ...;

Energy for a Warming World

by Springer

Energy for a Warming World challenges the commonplace notion that the amount of power which mankind can potentially harness from renewable resources is more than large enough to assuage future demand levels. The presumption of unlimited power from renewables does not take into account the fact that it may not be possible to fully develop this ...;

Economics of Climate Change: The Contribution of Forestry Projects

by Springer

The Kyoto Protocol is expected to give lead to the creation of an international market for greenhouse gas emission credits having an estimated volume of several tens of billions of dollars. The extent to which forestry projects will be accepted in this market is a matter of current discussion and controversy. In its evaluation of the ...;

Non-CO2 Greenhouse Gases: Scientific Understanding, Control and Implementation

by Springer

In the climate change discussion, non-CO2 greenhouse gases (NCGGs) received official political recognition for the first time in 1997, when agreement was reached on the Kyoto Protocol. As a result methane, nitrous oxide, HFCs, PFCs and SF6 now provide attractive options for detailing the national targets for the reduction of greenhouse gas ...;

This new case study from AltaTerra Research will be of interest to sustainability, social responsibility, finance, and IT executives – in both corporate and municipal organizations. Palo Alto, California is one of the first cities in the United States to begin using an automated system to track municipal greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and energy, ...;

Sea-Level Rise and Coastal Subsidence: Causes, Consequences, and Strategies

by Springer

Greenhouse-induced climate warming increasingly appears to be a reality, and the warming climate will be accompanied by an accelerated sea level rise - as much as 60-100 cm over the next century. What is commonly absent in the discussion of rising sea level, however, is the role played by the subsidence of low-lying coastal areas, which can ...;

Global Warming

by Springer

Global Warming: Engineering Solutions goes beyond the discussion of what global warming is, and offers complete concrete solutions that can be used to help prevent global warming. Innovative engineering solutions are needed to reduce the effects of global warming. Discussed here are proposed engineering solutions for reducing global warming ...;

Accounting for Climate Change

by Springer

The assessment of greenhouse gases (GHGs) emitted to and removed from the atmosphere is high on both political and scientific agendas internationally. As increasing international concern and cooperation aim at policy-oriented solutions to the climate change problem, several issues have begun to arise regarding verification and compliance under ...;
