  • Reduced Emissions for Landfill Gas Installations

    The use of landfill gas as a source of renewable energy is increasing. For environmental and safety reasons, the owners of the waste storage sites have to strictly monitor and control the construction, operations, and emissions generated. Sulzer offers solutions to control these emissions within the limits given by the government. Landfill gas is similar to natural gas, but it is created by ...

  • 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 ...

  • Undersea storage for US carbon emissions

    Researchers are working hard on methods to mitigate, reduce or compensate for CO2 emissions. One of these, geological carbon sequestration, involves injecting CO2 into deep saline aquifers, or depleted oil and gas reservoirs so that it is not released into the atmosphere where it contributes to global warming. Now US researchers have found a potential new location for undersea CO2 storage, which ...

  • Turning Carbon Emissions Into A Revenue Stream

    On the heels of the EPA’s new carbon rules proposed by President Obama on June 2, I wanted to take a closer look at a potential disruptive technological breakthrough: taking CO2 waste streams and turning them into saleable, value-added feedstocks. Certainly, the deployment of renewables, energy efficiency, smart grid, and energy storage technologies offer some of the most cost-effective ...

  • Planetary crisis and to constraint carbon emissions

    Extreme weather patterns, glaciers melt and rising sea levels have been brought on by tonnes of carbon emissions.Such by-products of human activity stem chiefly from the burning of fossil fuels and fuel consumption by vehicle engines. As you are fully aware of the facts that belching emissions from all industries are unhealthy for a sustainable earth. The intergovernmental panel on climate change ...

  • Carbon Fiber Emission Control Strategies

    Problem Carbon fiber (fibre) and graphite reinforced polymers are materials that have, and will continue to revolutionize the products we use everyday by making them stronger, lighter and more durable. However, the manufacturing process can have serious environmental ramifications and immediate danger to human health if careful consideration is not given to emission control at the ...

  • World’s top companies failing to cut carbon emissions

    New report claims that only 19% of the world’s top companies have achieved significant reductions in their carbon emissions. New research reveals that over 80% of the world's top companies aren't achieving significant carbon emissions reductions, although there is an increase in the amount of companies that identify significant opportunities instead of risks from climate change. According ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Offset the carbon emissions of your marketing programs

    You can reduce and reuse as much as you can, but the reality is, it’s next to impossible to have a zero carbon footprint in a marketing department. That’s why most eco-minded businesses buy carbon offsets. What are carbon offsets? According to the David Suzuki Foundation, “a carbon offset is an emission reduction credit from another organization’s project that results in less carbon dioxide or ...


  • Per Capita Carbon Dioxide Emissions: Convergence or Divergence?

    Understanding and considering the distribution of per capita carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions is important in designing international climate change proposals and incentives for participation. I evaluate historic international emissions distributions and forecast future distributions to assess whether per capita emissions have been converging or will converge. I find evidence of convergence among ...

  • U.S. headed for massive decline in carbon emissions*

    For years now, many members of Congress have insisted that cutting carbon emissions was difficult, if not impossible. It is not. During the two years since 2007, carbon emissions have dropped 9 percent. While part of this drop is from the recession, part of it is also from efficiency gains and from replacing coal with natural gas, wind, solar, and geothermal energy. The United States has ended a ...
