  • Ruling on the "crunch issues" of land use, land-use change and forestry: impacts on project viability

    Carbon sequestration in forests is undoubtedly one of the most controversial issues of the Kyoto Protocol. Whilst there is agreement that temporary carbon storage in forests contributes to delaying climate change, there is still much controversy about the rules and procedures that should be implemented to give credits to afforestation and reforestation activities under the Clean Development ...

  • Uptake of perfluoroalkyl acids in the leaves of coniferous and deciduous broad‐leaved trees

    Analytical methods for determining perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) in leaves were developed to quantify a suite of analytes in both coniferous and deciduous broad‐leaved trees. Sodium hydroxide‐methanol and solid‐phase extraction was selected as extracting and cleaned‐up strategy for PFAAs analysis. Ten perfluorocarboxylic acids (PFCAs) and four perfluorosulfonic acids (PFSAs) were monitored in ...

  • Enterprise Carbon Accounting: The quest for unprecedented transparency

    Enterprise carbon accounting (ECA) is an essential requirement for companies and will likely become necessary due to government legislation. No longer is it permissible for a company to look within its borders, but it must look at its overall environmental responsibilities and accurately gauge and measure carbon production and emission caused by its very existence. Financial data must be directly ...

  • The responsibility of CO2 embodied in Italy-China trade: a consumption-based approach

    This paper presents a theoretical model to allocate emission responsibility between producers or consumers and estimates: (1) the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions embodied in the bi-lateral trade of manufactured products between Italy and China from 1997 to 2003 and (2) the CO2 emissions avoided in Italy and China by importing products of bi-lateral trade. Adopting a consumption-based approach and ...

  • The complex issues of carbon sink: a critical overview

    The aim of the paper is to offer a systemic overview about some critical and interdependent relations among carbon offset, carbon sequestration and carbon stock. Rooting in the complexity perspective, the work discusses some relevant measurement methods and financial issues related to the land use - land use change forestry (LULUCF) applied under Kyoto Protocol rules. There are uncertainties on ...

  • Is a sector carbon deal the alternative to a global climate deal?

    The sectors with largest carbon emissions should jointly agree on a global sectoral system that integrates carbon and trade. The Cancun Summit will be a one more step on the road to establishing a workable framework for reducing global carbon emissions. But, a global climate deal focused on economy-wide carbon emissions targets seems to be insufficient. Following last month’s midterm ...

  • CRC puts big responsibility on Financial Directors

    Inaccuracy in reported carbon emissions could be fined more aggressively under the CRC scheme, reports Envido. Financial Directors are now on the front line of ensuring their companies are prepared for the Carbon Reduction Commitment. From April 2010, the CRC will create a direct link between many companies' carbon emissions and their bottom line. By 2010, the UK government had promised to reduce ...

  • Modelling and simulation of reaction kinetics of carbon dioxide absorption into aqueous ammonia in a wetted wall column

    Carbon dioxide accounts for about 80% of all greenhouse gases (GHG) and thus becomes the major source responsible for global warming which is considered as the greatest environmental challenge the world is facing. The post–combustion capture is the main way to lower the emission of existing power plants and future power plants where CO2 is produced during the combustion. Solvent–based ...

  • Variations of carbon transport in the Yellow River, China

    The Yellow River is the second largest river in China. Carbon transport by the Yellow River has significant influence on riverine carbon cycles in Asia. In order to monitor seasonal and spatial variations of carbon concentrations and to estimate carbon exports, water and suspended solids were sampled every 10 days at three representative stations (Qingtongxia, Tongguan, and Luokou) along the ...

  • REDD+ progress is possible — just look at Indonesia

    In the global drive to cut greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, REDD+ transactions have become prominent. REDD+ stands for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation plus safeguards, such as transparent governance and respect for indigenous peoples’ rights and knowledge. REDD+ transactions agree ways for governments, communities and ...

  • Carbon footprint of breton pâté production: A case study

    This study targeted nine different pork pâtés, produced with pork from different meat production systems (conventional, organic and other quality certifications). Besides Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions, the study also included a detailed analysis of product nutrition. Results show that the GHG emissions range from 200 g CO2e per 100g of product conventional pork pâtés and 330 g CO2e per 100g ...

  • Environmentally adjusted domestic product and emission control policies; a dynamic simulation modelling approach: an example from the French carbon dioxide emission prospects

    This paper aims at defining some ecologically adjusted aggregates with a view to building a "green" accounting framework. The model used for the research is based on both systems dynamics modelling and energy input–output analysis. We consider that this combined method has the interesting property of accurately tracing the physical foundations of economic sectors' interactions, as well as their ...

  • Allocation of ecologically allowable carbon emissions to countries as a key to more effective post–Kyoto Protocol climate change mitigation law

    The paper proposes novel carbon indicators as effective control instruments to design the post–Kyoto Protocol climate change mitigation law. The allocation of Ecologically Allowable Carbon Emissions (EACE) to countries show that a group of countries needs no emissions reductions today because their actual carbon emissions are below the EACE. The presented approach offers improved flexibility ...

  • The IMPROVE_A Temperature Protocol for Thermal/Optical Carbon Analysis: Maintaining Consistency with a Long-Term Database

    Thermally derived carbon fractions including organic carbon (OC) and elemental carbon (EC) have been reported for the U.S. Interagency Monitoring of PROtected Visual Environments (IMPROVE) network since 1987 and have been found useful in source apportionment studies and to evaluate quartz-fiber filter adsorption of organic vapors. The IMPROVE_A temperature protocol defines temperature plateaus ...

  • Performance and mechanism of anaerobic biotrickling filter for removal of sulfite, sulfate, and hydrosulfite

    A biotrickling filter (BTF) was designed for removal of sulfite (SO32−), sulfate (SO42−), and hydrosulfite (HSO−3) produced from flue gas adsorbent during dual-alkali flue gas desulfurization. With an SO32− concentration of 0.89 g-S/(L packing), BTF could completely remove SO32− within 3 h with an ...

  • Decarbonising the Economy: The Pivotal Role of the Financial Sector

    The physicist Niels Bohr defined an expert as "a person who has found out, by his own painful experience, all the mistakes that one can make in a very narrow field." If Bohr's description is accurate, we are all about to become experts on climate change. 2012 was the hottest year on record in the US, and China's most recent winter was its coldest in 30 years. According to research by MunichRe, ...
