  • How can we reduce concrete’s hefty carbon footprint?

    A roomful of materials scientists, gathered at UCLA for a recent conference on “grand challenges in construction materials,” slowly passed a brick-size white block around the room. They held in their hands, briefly, part of the solution to one of those grand challenges. The white block, rock solid and surprisingly lightweight, was a new alternative to cement, the glue that holds ...

  • Can we bury the carbon dioxide problem?

    Seriously — carbon capture and storage could be a game-changer. Mention “carbon capture and storage” — the process of trapping carbon dioxide produced in fossil-fuel burning or other industrial processes and burying it underground — in polite company, and you’re likely to be pounced on. It’s absurdly expensive. It can never be rolled ...

  • Gaseous emissions during concurrent combustion of biomass and non-recyclable municipal solid waste

    Abstract Background: Biomass and municipal solid waste offer sustainable sources of energy; for example to meet heat and electricity demand in the form of combined cooling, heat and power. Combustion of biomass has a lesser impact than solid fossil fuels (e.g. coal) upon gas pollutant emissions, whilst energy recovery from municipal solid waste is a beneficial component of an integrated, ...

  • Green Energy-Still a Grey Area for Many

    When homes and business are thinking about where their electricity is generated, pig poo, tomatoes and skip waste are probably not the first things that spring to mind for most, but all three are being used to generate power across the country. Sustainable energy provider, green energy uk, investigates green energy sources and explains how easy it is ...


  • Sustainability in a competitive world - A new carbon order emerges

    A growing global presence, a rising political power, a burgeoning consumer market are all terms associated with China. But, 'a voice for sustainability'? This doesn't tally with most people's perceptions of the country, which emits more CO2 than the US and Canada put together - up by over 170% since 2000[i] - and has recently been in the spotlight for not declaring its airline's carbon emissions. ...

  • AGE assessment of interactions between climate change policy instruments and pre-existing taxes: the case of Ireland

    We introduce a computable general equilibrium model for Ireland to investigate the impact of climate policy on the Irish economy, taking special notice of interactions with the existing tax structure. To this end, we extend the model with a detailed representation of the tax system using separate tax data on all transactions, both intermediate and final demand. We simulate the implementation of ...

  • Real estate sustainability

    Under the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC), all organisations using more than 6,000MWh of half-hourly metered electricity will be participants in CRC unless those supplies are already covered by Climate Change Agreements. Are you affected? What is the CRC?The CRC is a new mandatory form of carbon trading which aims to improve energy efficiency and reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emitted ...

  • Product carbon footprinting: improving environmental performance and manufacturing efficiency

    Product carbon footprinting is based on life cycle assessment (LCA), which is a method of analysis that seeks to quantify the environmental and human-health impacts associated with products and services. LCAs have been used successfully to characterize a number of environmental and social impacts, examples of which include global warming, ecosystem health, and resource depletion. The LCA ...

  • Carbon dioxide capture and storage scenarios: a case study of the East Midlands and Yorkshire (UK)

    This paper uses quantitative electricity supply scenarios to explore the potential for CO2 storage at locations in the Southern North Sea basin from point sources within a case study region that consists of the East Midlands combined with Yorkshire and Humberside in the UK. The reactions to these scenarios from a variety of stakeholders from the public and private sectors are explored using an ...
