  • Mitigation of road transport carbon emissions in Argentina

    This study describes a model to calculate energy consumption and CO2 emissions into the atmosphere by the road transport sector in Argentina from 1960 to 2050. The model analyses different mitigation scenarios to determine effective options to produce a sensitive decrease in carbon emissions. The results of this study show that by reducing the use of private vehicles while ...

  • EU could cut emissions by 40 percent at moderate cost

    The costs of achieving a more ambitious EU climate target are estimated to be moderate. Upscaling greenhouse-gas emissions reduction from the current 20 percent by 2020 to 40 percent by 2030 would be likely to cost less than an additional 0.7 percent of economic activity. This is a key finding from an international multi-model analysis by the Stanford Energy Modeling Forum (EMF28) and comes at a ...

  • Green legacy of Sochi 2014 boosted by Carbon Trust, UNDP and GEF

    Environmental legacy of the Sochi 2014 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games strengthened thanks to new report prepared by the Carbon Trust, looking at the international carbon flows of embodied greenhouse gas emissions in Russia’s products and services. The environmental legacy of the Sochi 2014 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games has been strengthened thanks to a new report prepared by the ...

  • Do we need a standard to calculate “avoided emissions”?

    Businesses are constantly reminded of the risks and challenges of climate change, most recently with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s fifth assessment report (AR5). Extreme weather events like flooding, wildfires, and droughts are challenging our infrastructure and disrupting our ...

  • A method for estimating the cost to sequester carbon dioxide by delivering iron to the ocean

    The need to find economical methods of CO2 sequestration is now urgent. Ocean iron fertilisation has been suggested as a low cost mitigation option to capture and store carbon. However, previous methods of estimating the cost fail to account for many of the losses and offsets occurring over the storage period. A method for calculating the net carbon stored from iron ...

  • Traffic pollution modelling in a complex urban street

    This study explores for the first time, the applicability of the Danish Operational Street Pollution Model (OSPM) in the city of Buenos Aires where street canyons are very irregular. The model is applied in an irregular and asymmetric street canyon of a five–lane avenue near a street intersection. Urban background concentrations estimated by the DAUMOD model are considered. Meteorological ...

  • Potential CO2 reduction through restructuring the Jordanian utility sector

    This study attempts to predict the potential CO2 reduction due to pre–proposed future restructuring scenarios toward clean generation technologies for the Jordanian utility sector. The calculation is based on CO2 emission for unit electricity generated and the changing type of fuel percentages for electricity generation in Jordan. It was ...

  • Biofuels and carbon footprint

    Europe’s use of biofuels to fuel its vehicles risks driving land grabs and deforestation, increasing food prices, exacerbating poverty and hunger, and accelerating climate change. We are seriously concerned that the Commission has not yet taken action to ensure that Europe’s green transport policy discourages those biofuels that cause higher greenhouse gas emissions than fossil ...

  • Food, the carbon story

    What do milk, bread and orange juice have in common? One answer is that they have all had their carbon footprints assessed and the products have been labelled by the Carbon Trust. Over the last five years, the Carbon Trust has certified the carbon footprints of a wide range of food products, and worked with a variety of companies to help them understand the carbon content of their food. As a ...

  • Village of Milltown, NJ

    CCES managed and oversaw the village's effort to determine its carbon footprint. Prepared data collection sheets to determine energy usage and GHG emissions from businesses, government operations, and residents. Reviewed and upgraded data quality and oversaw calculation of baseline GHG emissions. Presented a town hall lecture on the benefits of being green and provided easy-to-implement tips to ...


  • Application of urban street canyon models for predicting vehicular pollution in an urban area in Dublin, Ireland

    The relative performance of two atmospheric dispersion models STREET and OSPM is assessed using measured CO and NOx data obtained adjacent to an urban street canyon. This paper in particular, evaluates the performance of STREET, a mathematical model, to determine its suitability as an alternative to the OSPM model, which is a more elaborate numerical model. ...

  • Modelling the meteorology and traffic pollutant dispersion in highly complex terrain: the ALPNAP Alpine Space Project

    An integrated methodology was applied, within the framework of the ALPNAP Project, to study the meteorology and traffic pollutant dispersion in highly complex topography, the Frejus Alpine transect area. Three episodes, characterised by strongly critical dispersive conditions, were considered in the year 2004. The atmospheric circulation and pollutant dispersion were simulated using RMS ...

  • How organisations can take full advantage of the CRC scheme

    Organisations should prepare during the rest of the financial year to take best advantage of the CRC scheme. Organisations that think they have got the hard work completed by successfully registering for the CRC Energy Efficiency scheme ahead of last month’s deadline will be surprised knowing that is far from reality. Business and public sector bodies should prepare during the rest of ...
