  • A Critical Evaluation of the South African Air Quality Offsets Guideline

    There is wide recognition in South Africa to the link between the quality of life and quality of the air we breathe. The Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) attempts to improve air quality through two key regulatory tools; emission limits, which regulate the maximum concentration of certain pollutants permissible within certain, ‘listed’ industrial stacks or vents, and ambient ...

  • Time to address the air pollution control residue problem

    The incineration of municipal solid waste is gaining increasing importance in the UK, especially as the burning of waste can be used to generate energy, providing a more sustainable solution to our waste problem by diverting it from landfill sites. An issue with incineration is that some of our waste contains hazardous chemicals such as chlorine and lead which are volatilised during the process. ...

  • Air Pollution Control in the Printing and Web Coating Industries

    For many U.S. companies in the printing and web coating business, the use of an Air Pollution Control System (APCS) to control harmful air pollutants is not new.  In these industries, depending upon their location, companies have been installing APCS since the early 1970's.  However, for some companies the clock is still ticking regarding their compliance with local, state and federal ...

  • Bio-oxidation control of air emissions from panel board production – A new direction

    Biofilters or bio-oxidation systems have been used for control of air emissions, primarily odors, since the 1960’s. Those early uses in the U.S. were largely relegated to odor control, primarily H2S, mercaptans and skatols, from wastewater treatment facilities. The Europeans were more aggressive in applying biofilter systems to various industrial air emissions, again primarily for odor control in ...

  • EU Directive on the Landfill of Waste

    The Commission has adopted a new Proposal on the Landfill of Waste. The objective of this Proposal is to reduce the impact of waste disposal on the environment. Disposal of waste is the option of last resort in the hierarchy of waste management principles as stated by the Commission in its Waste Strategy Review of July 1996. In the Review the Commission gives clear preference to minimization and ...


  • EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission inventory guidebook 2016

    1 Guidebook Introduction 1.1 Introduction The joint EMEP (1)/EEA Air Pollutant Emission Inventory Guidebook (the 'Guidebook'), following the 'Guidelines for Reporting Emissions and Projections Data' under the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution (LRTAP) (2), provides concise guidance on how ...

  • Population Exposure to Air Pollutants in Europe (PEOPLE): Methodological Strategy and Basic Results

    This report is designed to enable general understanding of the Population Exposure to Air Pollutants in Europe (PEOPLE) project. The methodology and basic results of the PEOPLE project is described. A full interpretative analysis of the data is not presented here. In each city the project required collaboration between a local partner and the Emissions and Health Unit (EHU) of the Institute for ...


  • Air pollution impacts from carbon capture and storage (CCS)

    Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) consists of the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from power plants and/or CO2-intensive industries such as refineries, cement, iron and steel, its subsequent transport to a storage site, and finally its injection into a suitable underground geological formation for the purposes of permanent storage. It is considered to be one of the medium term 'bridging ...

  • The US experience with controlling motor vehicle pollution: lessons for China

    This paper reviews policies for the control of mobile source pollution and their potential application in China. The first section reviews the US experience with mobile source pollution control since regulations were first established in the Clean Air Act of 1970. Highlights in the policy and trends in vehicle emissions from 1970 to 2000 are discussed. The second section discusses the range of ...

  • A structural decomposition analysis of air pollution from fossil fuel combustion in India

    During the last decade, there has been worldwide concern with global climate change, which has been induced by greenhouse gases (GHGs) due to the use of fossil fuels. The CO2 emissions from fossil fuel combustion have been identified as the single most significant source of GHG emissions into the atmosphere. Realising the need to control and regulate emissions of pollutants, the objective ...

  • Air pollution from electricity-generating large combustion plants

    The study was initiated in the context of the review of the Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) Directive. This report presents the results of a study that assesses the theoretical potential to reduce air emissions of SO2 and NOX that might have occurred had the best available techniques (BAT) and associated emission levels (AELs), as described in the large combustion plant ...

  • Composting releases less air pollution than previously thought - study

    A new study funded by the California Integrated Waste Board (CIWMB) indicates that well-managed composting of green waste and food waste releases significantly less air pollution than previously thought. The study also demonstrates that a relatively inexpensive management technique - covering active compost piles with a layer of finished compost - may lower air emissions even further, by as ...
