by European Parliament  (Feb. 26, 2015)

The EU's emissions trading scheme (ETS) was set up to reduce gas emissions and fight climate change, but it is not working as efficiently as it could. On 24 February MEPs approved draft legislation to tackle the imbalances of supply and demand of emission allowances, which is holding back investment in green technologies. Read on to find out what ...

The European environment — state and outlook 2015 — synthesis report

by European Environment Agency (EEA)  (Mar. 2, 2015)

In 2015, Europe stands roughly halfway between the initiation of EU environmental policy in the early 1970s and the EU's 2050 vision of 'living well within the limits of the planet' (1). Underlying this vision is a recognition that Europe's economic prosperity and well-being is intrinsically linked to its natural environment — from fertile ...

Mercury – The Facts, Myths and Clean Up Tips!

by Alpha Cure (UK)  (Feb. 20, 2015)

Mercury, the facts. Mercury is an element (Hg on the periodic table) found naturally in the environment. Mercury emissions can come from both natural and man-made sources. It is commonly used in mercury arc lamps for UV curing, however this is a very minimal amount (as little as 5mg) and is used in the lamp to increase the voltage. Due to the ...

ACS installation at Glowood 100,000ton/y pellet plant achieves 12mg/Nm3

by Advanced Cyclone Systems, S. A.  (Feb. 5, 2015)

With increasingly tougher restrictions on industrial air emissions, pellet manufacturers are looking to "future-proof" particulate matter (PM) compliance, cost effectively. One Portuguese producer, Glowood Indústria S.A., has recently installed a brand new type of mechanical cyclone. The most recent results show a remarkable reduction of ...

Universal system for forecasting changes in PM10 and PM2.5 particulate matter air pollution concentration

by Inderscience Publishers  (Feb. 26, 2015)

We present a system for forecasting the changes in PM 10 and PM 2.5 particulate matter air pollution concentration. The system is based on immissions data from automatic measurement stations of the Voivodship (Regional) Inspectorate for Environmental Protection in Warsaw (Poland) and a numerical forecast of meteorological parameters ...

Wavelet–based models for air pollution modelling around coal mining sites in Jharkhand for 1, 3 and 5 day lead time

by Inderscience Publishers  (Feb. 26, 2015)

Coal dust is a major cause of air pollution in areas around opencast coal mining sites. Prediction of ambient concentration of pollutant should be known to implement any control techniques or to install any control equipment. Combining adaptive network based fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) and linear regression (LR) with discrete wavelet transform ...

Two big stories from 2014 were the amount of air pollution in cities, especially in China, and the rise of “wearables” and other personal technologies people use to track things about themselves, often having to do with health and fitness measurements, such as steps taken, hours slept, heart rate and more. Now, the ...

Costs of air pollution from European industrial facilities 2008-2012

by European Environment Agency (EEA)  (Nov. 25, 2014)

In 2011, the European Environment Agency (EEA) published a first assessment of the costs of air pollution caused by European industrial facilities.
