  • How to generate an accurate load profile for CHP

    If you fail to accurately work out your site's energy demands, you'll give rise to a cogeneration system that underwhelms when served up to your customer. That's why load profiling is the key ingredient in successfully specifying your cogeneration project and ensuring that you meet your clients' expectations. Generating an accurate ...

  • Process-generated contaminants

    Overview: There is not currently a formal and universally recognised definition of a process-generated substance. Process-generated contaminants can be generated as emissions from combustion processes, abrasion and/or other processes that physically or chemically degrade or otherwise modify the starting material(s), e.g. degradation/composting of organic materials. Such ...

  • A quick guide to oil analysis for engine test applications

    Reliability testing is a very important component of new engine development. Engineers need to fully understand and chart the engine lifetime performance under a variety of conditions before mass production may be considered. Many important performance data parameters are collected in real time through the many different types of sensors that are connected to the engine in the test cell and oil ...

  • Reduce Your Carbon Emissions

    Saving Energy is easier than you think!The average American generates about 19-20 tons of carbon dioxide each year. Simple activities such as watching television, sending an email message, cooking and making a phone call produce carbon emissions, but there are many simple and inexpensive ways to reduce your carbon emissions ( and your energy costs) beginning today.According to Evan Mills, a ...

  • 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 ...

  • Carbon emission trading in India and Sri Lanka

    Kyoto Protocol has established three trading mechanisms, namely International Emission Trading (IET), Joint Implementation (JI) and Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) which enable industrialised countries to achieve carbon emission reduction targets as economically as possible. Out of these three mechanisms, CDM is the most important mechanism for the developing countries. CDM allows the carbon ...

  • China's regional carbon emission intensity decomposition system

    Based on the Divisia decomposition method, this study developed the China Regional Carbon Emission Intensity Decomposition System (CREID). CREID intends to provide a uniform platform to analyse the trends of China's regional carbon emission intensity and their underlying reasons. The uneven regional development and large amount of data to process in China are considered in CREID. Corresponding ...

  • Who Should Abate Carbon Emissions? A Note

    Economists commonly believe that failure to equalize the marginal cost of carbon abatement across countries implies a loss of global efficiency. Chichilnisky and Heal [(1994), Economic Letters 44, 444] first challenged this consensus a decade ago, demonstrating that, in general, efficiency does not require equalizing marginal abatement costs. This note revisits that important debate. It provides ...

  • Some determinants of carbon dioxide emissions in Bangladesh

    Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, industrial output growth, population growth and Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflows in Bangladesh for 1972–2008 are found non–stationary in terms of both Augmented Dickey–Fuller (ADF) and Kwiatkowski, Phillips, Schmidt and Shin (KPSS) tests with different orders of integration. As a result, the Autoregressive Distributed Lag (ARDL) model and ...

  • Government ignores carbon emission reductions during recession

    DECC remains confident that existing plans to cut carbon emissions by 2020 will serve to achieve carbon targets, reports Envido. In its response to the first annual report from the independent Committee on Climate Change (CCC), the government accepted the committee's recommendation to effectively ignore carbon emission reductions that have been achieved as a result of the economic downturn. The ...
