  • Models and muddles: the cost of meeting emission targets

    In 1990, the Australian Government adopted an interim target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 20%, subject to it not adversely affecting Australia's trade competitiveness in the absence of similar action by other competitor countries. Since then, a series of reports have attempted to assess the economic effects on Australia of reducing emissions. This paper reviews these reports and ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • The cost to Australia of reducing greenhouse gas emissions

    Australia has a particular interest in the greenhouse issue and control of greenhouse gas emissions. Although the economy is reliant on energy-intensive industries, Australia has been one of those countries prepared to make substantial commitments to reducing emissions. This paper describes the potential impact on Australia of the cost of these commitments, with a particular focus on ...

  • The “Social cost of carbon” and climate change policy

    Economist Frank Ackerman has called the “social cost of carbon” the most important number you never heard of. What is the social cost of carbon, where do the numbers come from, and why should policymakers take care when using them? The Obama Administration (and the Bush Administration before it) uses the SCC to assess the benefits of regulations that would limit emissions of carbon ...

  • 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 ...

  • Shipping carbon emissions come under scrutiny

    Cutting energy costs and supply chain pressures will be the major drives for the shipping industry to cut its carbon emissions. The shipping industry’s growth and the rise of living standards around the world puts the industry’s carbon emission under scrutiny. Shipping has long being one of the world’s 'invisible industries’ – but its carbon emissions are now ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Energy taxes and subsidies: their implications for CO2 emissions and abatement costs

    Energy markets are often distorted, with the result that price does not equal the marginal social cost of production. Subsidies encourage consumption of energy and impose welfare losses independent of those arising from global warming. Fossil fuels, especially oil, are already taxed in many countries. The superimposition of a carbon tax on existing taxes could greatly increase the welfare loss ...

  • Novel cogeneration cost-sharing mechanism for energy savings and emission reduction in China

    Cogeneration can improve the efficiency of energy utilisation, improve energy savings and reduce carbon emission. However, China currently suffers unreasonable cogeneration pricing and cost sharing, which has seriously hampered the development of cogeneration power plants. Based on the production process of cogeneration, this paper analyses the principles of thermoelectric cogeneration and energy ...

  • EU could cut emissions by 40 percent at moderate cost

    The costs of achieving a more ambitious EU climate target are estimated to be moderate. Upscaling greenhouse-gas emissions reduction from the current 20 percent by 2020 to 40 percent by 2030 would be likely to cost less than an additional 0.7 percent of economic activity. This is a key finding from an international multi-model analysis by the Stanford Energy Modeling Forum (EMF28) and comes at a ...

  • Interview: how to charge firms for CO2 emissions without it costing jobs

    Charging companies for CO2 emissions can be a great way of encouraging them to become cleaner, but also risks pushing them to move production to somewhere with lower environmental standards. The European Commission aims to prevent the practice known as carbon leakage by continuing to give some allowances away for free. Bas Eickhout proposed to block this decision, saying many industries can ...
