  • EPA releases new mobile source emissions model

    WASHINGTON - An updated version of the Motor Vehicle Emission Simulator (MOVES) model – MOVES2010 – is now available for use to estimate air pollution from cars, trucks, and other on-road mobile sources. The model can also calculate the emissions reduction benefits from a range of mobile source control strategies, such as inspection and maintenance programs and local fuel standards. EPA will ...

  • UAI Petitions EPA To Withdraw Flawed Emissions Model

    On January 25, 2017, the Urban Air Initiative (UAI), along with the Energy Future Coalition and the states of Kansas and Nebraska, filed a request for correction of information petitioning EPA to correct its models on motor vehicle fuel emissions that limit the use of higher blends of ...

  • India says no to emission reduction

    India's minister for environment and forests Jairam Ramesh has ruled out the country's agreeing to specific targets for reducing carbon emissions. 'There is simply no case for the pressure that we [India] — who have among the lowest emissions per capita — face to reduce emissions,' Ramesh told visiting US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton yesterday (19 July). 'And as if this pressure was not ...

  • Volvo Launches `Emissions Equality` Campaign

    The car manufacture Volvo has launched an "Emissions Equality" campaign to encourage policy makers and the general public to consider toxic emissions from vehicles as well as CO2. Environmental Protection UK is supporting the campaign. The campaign is following a three point action plan: Promotion materials and Facebook/ iPhone applications to plug the campaign. The application, which will ...

  • European consortium to combat methane emissions

    The Centre for Carbon Measurement at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is leading a European consortium to develop and test new methane measurement instruments for shale gas extraction, municipal waste water treatment plants and gas distribution. The consortium includes Cuadrilla Resources, Veolia Environnement and National Grid. Climate-KIC, Europe's largest public-private innovation ...

  • Stricter low emission zone in Berlin

    Berlin has established an Low Emission Zone (Environmental Zone) for the City centre on January 1st 2008. Its purpose is to reduce harmful pollutants in the air that are caused by road traffic. From January 1st 2010 on, only cars with green stickers will be allowed to enter the zone. More information on Berlin’s Environmental Zone: ...

  • Emissions could make Earth uninhabitable

    Greenhouse gases could tip the Earth – or at least a planet like Earth, orbiting a star very like the Sun – into a runaway greenhouse effect, according to new research. The new hothouse planet would become increasingly steamy, and then start to lose its oceans to interplanetary space. Over time, it would become completely dry, stay at a temperature at least 60°C hotter than it is ...

  • Impact of transport emissions on the lower atmosphere

    Traffic emissions cause a number of damaging chemical changes in the atmosphere. A recent study has estimated the impact of road, aircraft and ship emissions on the atmosphere's chemical make-up in terms of ozone and the hydroxyl radical OH. Traffic emissions form a large part of EU air pollution and are the subject of climate change policy1. Ozone pollution in the troposphere adversely affects ...

  • Emissions gap report handover to government of Mexico

    A landmark assessment, spotlighting the emissions gaps between what nations pledged on climate change 12 months ago and what is actually needed to avoid a 2 degree temperature rise, was formally handed over today to the Government of Mexico. The report, coordinated by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) with researchers from 25 climate modeling centres world-wide, has provided a key focus for ...

  • Publication on source term calculation of methane emissions rates

    In "Waste Management", our publication on source term calculation using line-integrated methane measurements and dispersion modelling with LASAT has been ...

  • Emissions Factors Toolkit v8 is published by Defra

    The Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs released a new version of the Emissions Factors Toolkit (EFT). Details of the updates in this new version are given on page 5 of the EFT user guide. The new version of the Excel spreadsheet and the user guide can be ...

  • New Emissions Factors Toolkit released (version 7.0)

    A new version of Defra's Emissions Factors Toolkit (EFT) has been released recently. ADMS-Urban 4.0 and ADMS-Roads 4.0 incorporate the emission factors from version 6 of the EFT. We are currently working to provide the new EFT factors for ADMS-Urban and ...

  • Japan 24-hour shops hit by emission limits

    Japan's 24-hour convenience stores, already struggling with lagging sales and growth, may soon face yet another threat -- moves to limit business hours and close the stores late at night. Kyoto, a former capital, wants to persuade convenience and other 24-hour stores to close late at night so as to improve evening views of the city and cut down on energy use. The Nikkei business daily said ...

  • Resolving climate uncertainties to help set new emissions targets

    Difficulties in setting global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions targets can arise from problems associated with calculating exactly how much carbon is in the atmosphere. However, recent research has produced quantitative data on the 'climate-carbon cycle feedback', which have strong implications for emissions policies. The amount of emitted carbon dioxide remaining in the atmosphere is controlled ...

  • New research claims emissions irrelevant to future climate change

    Climate change and the carbon emissions seem inextricably linked. However, new research published in BioMed Central’s open access journal Carbon Balance and Management suggests that this may not always hold true, although it may be some time before we reach this saturation point. The land and the oceans contain significantly more carbon than the atmosphere, and exchange carbon dioxide with the ...

  • Air traffic management to balance CO2 emissions and noise pollution

    Speed constraints for aircraft are put in place, at some airports, to minimise noise pollution in local areas, however, such practices can be very fuel-inefficient. New research has now shown that relaxing departure speed limits could substantially reduce CO2 emissions, while maintaining acceptable noise levels. The aviation industry is a major contributor to emissions of greenhouse ...
