  • ELI Research Brief #1 - New Uses for Old Tools: Protecting Biodiversity and Preventing Pollution Under Existing Laws Report

    Pollution prevention, rather than 'end of the pipe' treatment of effluent, has recently emerged as the preferred strategy in the reduction of industrial emissions. By signing the Biodiversity Treaty in 1993, President Clinton signaled U.S. recognition that protecting the global ecosystem is one of the planet's principal challenges. New Uses for ...

  • Effective Control of Fugitive Emissions

    With the EPA continually pressuring the industry to reduce emissions, control of fugitives is increasingly important to your overall emissions ...

  • Protecting the Ozone Layer

    Protecting the Ozone Layer: Lessons, Models, and Prospects Since the mid-1980s, the international community has adopted several significant instruments designed to reverse the degradation of the life support systems of the planet. None of these international agreements have been as successful as the 1987 Montreal Protocol in creating the ...

  • Biotechnology for Environmental Protection in the Pulp and Paper Industry

    Pulp and paper production has increased globally and will continue to increase in the near future. Approximately 155 million tons of wood pulp is produced worldwide and about 260 million is projected for the year 2010. To be able to cope with increasing demand, an increase in productivity and improved environmental performance is needed as the ...

  • Trace Gas Emissions and Plants

    Atmospheric abudance of trace gases since the pre-industrial time has forced the earth's climate to change, threatening food security. Exchange of biogenic trace gases between the atmosphere and the biosphere is directly or indirectly influenced by the plants. This volume contains the latest findings on the correlation between the climate ...

  • Safeguarding the Ozone Layer and the Global Climate System

    Scientific evidence linking chlorofluorocarbons and other ozone-depleting substances to global ozone depletion led to the initial control of chemicals under the 1987 Montreal Protocol. Since then it has been realized that some actions taken to reduce future depletion of the ozone layer could also influence global warming. When the Kyoto Protocol ...

  • Wetlands in Central Europe

    Wetlands are very sensitive ecosystems, functioning as habitat for many organisms. Protection and regeneration of wetlands are of great importance in ecological research and in nature conservation. A great amount of research has been done on the hydrology, plants and animals in wetlands. Knowledge on soil organisms and soil ecological processes of ...

  • Distorted Time Preferences and Structural Change in the Energy Industry

    This study contributes to the economic discounting debate by examining the welfare and policy implications of distorted time preferences for private investments. The analysis is applied to the energy industry, where it is of particular importance. In the transition to low-carbon energy generation, distorted time preferences are shown to induce a ...

  • Flexible Mechanisms for an Efficient Climate Policy

    In the Kyoto Protocol to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, industrialized countries agreed on binding absolute targets for greenhouse gas emissions and on the admission of flexible market-economy instruments - such as emissions trading, joint implementation and the clean development mechanism - used for reaching the targets. The ...

  • Efficiency and Equity of Climate Change Policy

    Efficiency and Equity of Climate Change Policy is a comprehensive assessment of the economic effects of climate change policy, addressing the issues with a quantitative modelling approach. The book thus goes beyond the usual statements on the efficiency of economic instruments to identify the way gains and losses are distributed; who gains ...
