  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Are emissions fueling Australian droughts?

    American scientists have just confirmed that parts of Australia are being slowly parched because of greenhouse gas emissions – which means that the long-term decline in rainfall over south and south-west Australia is a consequence of fossil fuel burning and depletion of the ozone layer by human activity. Such a finding is significant for two reasons. One remains contentious: it is one thing ...

  • CO2 emissions: cleaner vans by 2020

    The CO2 emission limit for new light commercial vehicles sold in the EU is to be reduced from 203 g/km today to 147 g/km by 2020, under draft legislation approved by the European Parliament on Tuesday. The text, already informally agreed with EU ministers, also calls for the introduction of more reliable CO2 emission testing methods. "We achieved a result after some difficult ...

  • 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 ...

  • Carbon emissions ‘outsourced’ to developing countries

    A new study by scientists at the Carnegie Institution for Science finds that over a third of carbon dioxide emissions associated with consumption of goods and services in many developed countries are actually emitted outside their borders. Some countries, such as Switzerland, 'outsource' over half of their carbon dioxide emissions, primarily to developing countries. The study finds that, per ...

  • 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 ...

  • Economic crisis slows worldwide CO2 emissions

    For the first time this decade, global CO2 emissions saw a slight decline in the past year. According to the German renewable energy industry institute IWR in Münster, 31.1 billion (bil.) t of carbon dioxide was emitted worldwide in 2009 (2008: 31.5 bil.). That is 400 million (mil.) t, or 1.3%, less than emissions in 2008, which was a record year. Global investments in renewable energy ...

  • 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 ...
