  • Climate change: knowledge, attitude and practice among the residents of Ifo LGA, Ogun State, South West, Nigeria - challenges and prospects towards site–specific interventions

    The end of the 19th century witnessed an increase in mean global temperature, with rising sea levels, due to discernible human influence on the global climate, causing untoward effects on lives and properties. The study determined the knowledge, attitude and practice towards climate change among the residents of Ifo LGA, Ogun State, South West, Nigeria. A descriptive cross–sectional survey was ...

  • Macroeconomic cost-effectiveness and the use of multi-sectoral dynamic modelling as an environmental valuation tool

    This paper presents a modelling methodology and empirical implementation for "greened-economy GDP" estimation, based on the complementarity of economic production and ecological services as sources of economic well-being. The following definition of an environmentally adjusted national product (greened-economy GDP) is adopted: the value (in money units) of the highest (or "best") feasible ...

  • A mixed-integer non-linear programming model for CO2 emission reduction in the power generation sector

    Electricity generation is considered to be one of the main contributing sources to the air pollution problem. It is, therefore, important to develop and implement effective control strategies to prevent the expected abrupt increase in emissions from this sector. Any control strategy must be suitable for local implementation and must also be economically viable. The main objective of this paper is ...

  • Techno-optimism: progress towards CO2 reduction targets in transport: a UK and London perspective

    Transport is making a very limited contribution to carbon emissions reduction targets in the UK, and this paper argues the case for a substantial shift in thinking away from the concentration on technological alternatives to a revised approach that combines technological efficiency with behavioural change. The paper presents a critique of the UK approach to energy and transport, commenting on the ...

  • Advanced processes for low rank coal drying and dewatering in high efficient power plants

    During the combustion of high-moisture lignites (50?60 wt.%) in conventional power plants, a substantial amount of the energy content is required to evaporate the water. With a view to secure and strengthen brown coal's position as high available energy source, in recent years many attempts have been made to develop technologies for an energy-efficient drying or dewatering process. In this paper ...

  • LCP/IRP strategy development using an optimising energy-emission model

    This paper proposes an energy-emission modelling approach for the development of least-cost planning and integrated resource planning strategies for electric utilities, and presents results of the model application to the municipal electric utilities of Karlsruhe and Rottweil. The LCP/IRP strategy employed is based on the regulatory practice in Germany, also with regard to liberalisation issues. ...

  • Estimates of CO2 emissions reduction and potential power generation from biogas at Mare Chicose landfill

    In this study, the annual generation of Landfill Gas (LFG) and methane using the Scholl-Canyon model have been predicted for 1998-2030 for five scenarios of landfill management at the Mare Chicose landfill in Mauritius. Using the Approved Large-Scale Methodology AM003 and Approved Baseline Methodology AM0010 of the Approved Methodologies for CDM activities, the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions ...

  • Renewable energy and sustainable development in Hungary

    This paper presents an overview of the use of renewable energy in Hungary. It analyses the role of renewables in the sustainable development of the country and in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Although Hungary is rich in geothermal sources, the use of renewable energy sources is not economically viable in the country compared with traditional energy sources. In Hungary, only biomass ...

  • The effect of SRT on nitrate formation during autotrophic nitrogen removal of anaerobically treated wastewater

    Autotrophic nitrogen removal, coupling nitritation (ammonium to nitrite) with anaerobic ammonium oxidation (anammox), offers a promising nitrogen-removal alternative, especially for post-treatment of anaerobically-treated wastewater. However, previous reports suggest that less than 90% total nitrogen removal should be expected with this process alone because over 10% of the ...
