  • Green Skies Thinking: Promoting The Development And Commercialisation Of Sustainable Bio-Jet Fuels

    Our report recommends the wide-scale deployment of sustainable bio-jet fuels which would result in emission reductions worth £37.41 billion in the UK between 2020 and 2050, as well as making a significant contribution to meeting the UK’s 2050 emission reduction target. We also set out how the UK can become a world leader in this important suite of ...

  • Tenure in REDD: Start-point or afterthought?

    As new mechanisms for ‘reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation’ (REDD) are being negotiated in international climate change talks, resource tenure must be given greater attention. Tenure over land and trees – the systems of rights, rules, institutions and processes regulating their access and use – will affect the extent to ...

  • Carbon Capture

    Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is the only method available for reducing CO2 emissions while allowing continued use of fossil fuels, both for power generation and potentially in broader contexts. Carbon capture technologies are already playing a role in reducing emissions from large sources such as power stations. Carbon capture could ...

  • Air Quality in Urban Environments

    Urban air quality is a topic which remains high on the scientific and political agenda. Concentrations of most air pollutants are higher in urban areas than in the surrounding rural regions, and given the high population densities, it is within urban areas that the majority of the population receive their air pollutant exposure. Despite the ...

  • Coast-Valley Air Pollution

    This book focuses on air pollution modeling in coast-valley environments. This includes the assessment of airborne pollutant emissions, transport, and depletion and the related chemistry. Modeling the coast-valley environments is characterized by a high level of complexity due to the concurrent presence of complex orography and land-sea interface. ...

  • Climate change in Asia: Perspectives on the Future Climate Regime

    Looking beyond the Kyoto Protocol's first containment period, and intense and growing international debate over the future climate change has emerged. Countries in Asia have particularly high stakes in this regime given the region's high population, growing greenhouse gas emissions, burgeoning economies and vulnerabilities to the impact of climate ...

  • Control of Odors & Emissions from Wastewater Treatment Plants - MOP 25

    The principal reference of contemporary practice for managing air emissions from wastewater systems. MOP 25 combines updated materials from two former WEF Publications - Odor Control in Wastewater Treatment Plants and Toxic Air Emissions from Wastewater Treatment Facilities into a comprehensive format. Public awareness of odors and air pollutants ...

  • VOC Emissions from Wastewater Treatment Plants: Characterization, Control and Compliance

    Although primarily concerned with the treatment of wastewater and water quality, publicly owned treatment works (POTWs) are required to be in compliance with the Federal Clean Air Act and an increasingly stringent series of Clean Air Act Amendments to control emissions of odors, criteria pollutants, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). How POTWs ...

  • Emission Reduction Credit Trading Systems: An Overview of Recent Results and an Assessment of Best Practices Report

    This report assesses actual experience under the two principal forms of inter-firm emissions credit trading programs used today: emission reduction credit (ERC) trading used for new source offsets under the Clean Air Act (CAA), and discrete emissions reduction (DER) credit programs created in six states since 1995. The report makes a qualitative ...

  • Air Pollution Control Law: Compliance and Enforcement

    The most comprehensive, up-to-date guide to and analysis of the Clean Air Act (CAA) is now available from the Environmental Law Institute. Authored by George Washington University Law School Prof. Arnold W. Reitze, Jr., one of the most noted authorities on the Act, Air Pollution Control Law: Compliance and Enforcement explains the legislative ...

  • IE-ESCGIC Vol. I Textile Industry Effluent Discharge Standards

    This set of compendiums deals with establishing environmental standards and guidelines for effluent or air emission, which is an important first step for countries concerned about regulating industrial activites as part of their environmental pollution control strategies.Establishing environmental standards and guidelines for effluent u air ...

  • Characterizing Sources of Indoor Air Pollution and Related Sink Effects

    STP 1287 features state of the art information from leading experts in the field on indoor air pollution sources and their potential interactions with indoor sinks. In addition to a comprehensive overview of source/sink characterization methods, there are 29 peer-reviewed papers. Researchers and practitioners in the public and private sector from ...

  • Air Quality Management

    The management of air quality is currently at the forefront of international debate. With authors drawn from international experts in their respective fields, Air Quality Management provides comprehensive coverage of the air quality management issue. There are chapters on improving air quality in the UK, the construction of emissions inventories ...

  • Air Emissions, Baselines, and Environmental Auditing

    A step-by-step guide to help businesses and government agencies conduct extensive audits and assessments of their air emissions, as required by 1990 amendments to the US Clean Air Act. Summarizes the Act's requirements for quality assurance, monitoring, establishing a baseline for air quality, reducing ozone-depleting chemicals, and other ...

  • Acoustic Emission: Current Practice and Future Directions

    Topics addressed include: sensors and AE systems; fundamental aspects of AE acousto-ultrasonics; new AE signal processing techniques; structural monitoring applications; material deformation studies; novel applications of AE measurement; geotechnical applications; and the use of AE to monitor failure processes in composite ...

  • Effect of Automotive Emission Requirements on Gasoline Characteristics

    The papers in the Symposium on Effect of Automotive Emission Requirements on Gasoline Characteristics Were given at the 73rd Annual Meeting of theAmerican Society for Testing and Materials held in Toronto, Ont., Canada, 21—26 June 1970. The symposium was sponsored by Division A of ASTM Committee D02 on Petroleum Products and Lubricants. The ...

  • Air Pollution Processes in Regional Scale

    An understanding of long-range transport of air pollutants in the atmosphere requires a knowledge of the relevant atmospheric dynamic and chemical processes active at the regional scale as well as the temporal and spatial distribution of emissions. Numerical modeling is the most efficient way to determine the atmospheric transport, photochemistry ...

  • Emissions Trading and Business

    Emissions trading challenges the management of companies in an entirely new manner. It does not only allow for a bigger flexibility in management decisions concerning emission issues like other marked based environmental policy instruments. Furthermore it changes the code by which environmental policy steers management decisions from hierarchical ...

  • EPA Clamping Down on Ozone Standards

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is preparing to again lower its ozone standard. This action reduces the amount of ozone that is allowed in the air we breathe and thus forces more industrial sources to further reduce their air pollution ...
