  • Energy strategy for carbon dioxide emission reduction in Taiwan

    A linear programming model is proposed to find the energy strategy for reducing carbon dioxide emission in Taiwan. Scenarios that include energy switching and energy conservation under different emission levels are considered, and the corresponding economic impacts are evaluated. Emissions from thirty-nine sectors are reduced by two major mechanisms. Energy switching is assumed to be induced by ...

  • Carbon dioxide gas case study

    Application Moisture] is measured in carbon dioxide gas pipelines and processing plants. Problem The presence of moisture in carbon dioxide gas promotes corrosion. Perhaps more significant is the fact that moisture will readily form ice when pressure is reduced. The ice can readily freeze up pressure regulators, valves, and orifice plates causing a loss of flow and even ice ...

  • Determinants of corporate carbon reduction targets

    This paper examines attributes affecting a corporation’s choice of an intensity-only (carbon emissions relative to sales, production, etc.) versus an absolute carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) emissions goal. We investigate alternative hypotheses for this choice including: 1) a high growth hypothesis whereby high growth companies select an intensity goal, to continue to grow without an absolute emission ...

  • Carbon dioxide capture and storage: Priorities for development

    Oil, coal and natural gas will remain the world’s dominant sources of energy over the next decades, resulting in unsustainable levels of carbon dioxide emissions. This trend can be reversed only via a near revolution in the way we produce, transform and consume energy. Concerted global action is urgently needed to increase investment in energy technology solutions. Carbon dioxide capture and ...

  • Feasibility Study of Using Brine for Carbon Dioxide Capture

    ABSTRACT A laboratory-scale reactor was developed to evaluate the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from a gas into a liquid as an approach to control greenhouse gases emitted from fixed sources. CO2 at 5–50% concentrations was passed through a gas-exchange membrane and transferred ...

  • Carbon dioxide capture: an assessment of plausible ranges

    The projections of energy related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in the Special Report on Emission Scenarios (SRES) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) serve as point of departure for an assessment of plausible ranges of CO2 emissions that could be avoided through CO2 capture and storage measures. Scenario and time ...

  • 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 ...

  • Economics of a global strategy for reduction of carbon emissions

    The evolution of natural systems that feed and sustain human populations, and indeed the evolution of modern society, has occurred in the context of a moderate and stable climate. Therefore, recent trends in climate change, most likely caused by increasing concentrations of carbon dioxide and other radiative trace gases in the atmosphere, and the expected consequent global warming, are now a ...

  • NHS managers urged to meet carbon reduction targets

    New plan on sustainable health sets out the steps that NHS managers must follow to cut carbon emissions. NHS Managers in the UK will be handed a number of measures they need to take to meet the government's carbon reduction targets, which involves cuttings its carbon emissions by 10% by 2015. This is part of the new “Vision for Sustainable Health: A Route map” to be set out today. ...

  • Power sector opportunities for reducing carbon dioxide emissions: Ohio

    According to new WRI analysis, in the near-term, Ohio can meet and possibly exceed forthcoming emissions standards for existing power plants. Ohio has a renewable portfolio standard (RPS) and an energy efficiency resource standard (EERS) in place, which if successful will achieve significant reductions in CO2 emissions from the power sector. WRI analysis finds that Ohio can reduce its CO2 ...

  • Power Sector Opportunities for Reducing Carbon Dioxide Emissions: Michigan

    According to new WRI analysis, in the near- to mid-term, Michigan can meet and possibly exceed future emissions standards for existing power plants. The state has renewable energy (RPS) and energy efficiency standards in place that are already set to achieve significant reductions in CO2 emissions from the power sector. WRI analysis finds that Michigan can reduce its CO2 emissions 33 percent ...

  • Note: the Kyoto instruments: are they adequate for achieving the stabilisation of carbon dioxide concentrations?

    It is argued that reaching stabilisation of carbon dioxide concentrations will require new policy instruments. The Kyoto instruments, while they serve to begin the process of emissions reductions, are only a first step in a process that will span many decades at a minimum. The new instruments should be directly aimed at R&D for developing the new non-carbon sources of energy.Keywords: IPCC, ...

  • Power Sector Opportunities for Reducing Carbon Dioxide Emissions: Wisconsin

    President Obama announced the first-ever National Climate Plan for the United States in June 2013. Under the plan, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will set carbon pollution standards for power plants. In September 2013, EPA introduced emissions standards for new power plants and is expected to ...

  • Power sector opportunities for reducing carbon dioxide emissions: North Carolina

    According to new WRI analysis, in the near-term, North Carolina can meet and possibly exceed forthcoming emissions standards for existing power plants.[1] The state has a renewable energy and energy efficiency standard (REPS) in place, which has already achieved significant reductions in CO2 emissions from the power sector. WRI analysis finds that North Carolina can reduce its CO2 emissions 29 ...

  • Power Sector Opportunities For Reducing Carbon Dioxide Emissions: Minnesota

    President Obama announced the first-ever National Climate Plan for the United States in June 2013. Under the plan, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will set carbon pollution standards for power plants. In September 2013, EPA introduced emissions standards for new power plants and is expected to announce standards for existing plants in 2014. Once EPA establishes those standards, ...

  • Disinfection effect of pressurized carbon dioxide on Escherichia coli and Enterococcus sp. in seawater

    Ship ballast water should be disinfected before being discharged into the ocean to avoid the dispersal of non-native species into the marine environment. This study presents the results of using pressurized carbon dioxide (CO2) at less than 1.0 MPa for inactivating Escherichia coli and Enterococcus sp. in artificial seawater (3.4% salinity). The bactericidal ...

  • Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) - Understanding complexity, mitigating risk, and capturing opportunity

    Implications of the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) are quite far-reaching and will apply both within the public and private sectors across the United Kingdom. About 20,000 organisations will likely be affected, based on how much electricity they consumed in the baseline year of 2008. Disclosures will be required for submission to the Environment Agency by the summer of 2010 at which time ...

  • Emissions reduction with Diesel blending

    Diesel technologies are develops by huge rates. Modification of cars with diesel engines make a half of the new cars sold in Europe. The black smoke, noisy engine operation and unpleasant smell remained far in the past. Today diesel engines present not only profitability, but also high capacity and worthy dynamic characteristics. Quality of fuel also is changed. The modern diesel blending has ...
