  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • New analysis shows Ohio can meet future carbon pollution standards

    New analysis of Ohio’s power sector shows that the state is in a strong position to meet – and possibly exceed – national carbon pollution standards that will be established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the coming years. The analysis, conducted by experts at ...

  • EU sets new van carbon emission targets despite lobbying

    New EU standards regime will impose penalties on non-compliant manufacturers. The European Parliament voted through carbon emissions targets for vans yesterday as part of a new standards regime that will impose penalties on non-compliant manufacturers. The new carbon emission targets involve that 70% of van manufacturers' fleet must meet a limit of 175g CO2/km by 2014 and ensure all models are ...

  • `Facing the New Emission Standards for Hydrochloric Acid Pickling,` presented at the SUR

    Introduction Under the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA), U.S. EPA is required to regulate sources of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). Primarily, HAP emissions are regulated through National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs), which are codified under Title 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 63. NESHAPs address HAP emissions from a particular process, ...

  • Emission factors – what are they and what are they for?

    What are emission factors? Carbon emission factors, sometimes called carbon conversion factors, are used to calculate the carbon emissions arising from an activity. For the greatest accuracy, the best way to measure carbon emissions would be to monitor them directly as they are emitted, for example by placing a sensor in a power station chimney.  Given the large number of different sources ...

  • States can take action now to meet future power plant emissions standards

    As part of his recently released Climate Action Plan, President Obama directed the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to set carbon pollution standards for existing power plants. While these federal standards are a critical component of the U.S. plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and ...

  • New Analysis Shows Michigan is Well-Positioned to Meet Upcoming Carbon Pollution Standards

    New analysis of Michigan’s power sector shows that the state can meet – and possibly even exceed – national carbon pollution standards that will be established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). EPA is expected to announce emissions standards for new ...

  • New analysis shows North Carolina can meet future carbon pollution standards

    New analysis of North Carolina’s power sector shows that the state is well positioned to meet – and potentially exceed – national carbon pollution standards that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is expected to unveil in the coming years. The ...

  • Forests for Carbon: Exploring forest carbon offsets in the U.S. South

    Southern U.S. forests remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it in the form of carbon in leaves, roots, branches, trunks, soil, and woody debris and other plant litter through a process known as “carbon sequestration.” Through this process, southern forests and other woodlands play a role in regulating Earth’s climate and moderating the effects of global climate ...

  • Refrigerator standards and their impact on United States society

  • Case study - Carbon fibre: furnace & oven emission control

    Overview A carbon fiber company in China was faced with the challenge of selecting an emission control system for a new pilot line at their specialty fiber products facility. The line would include furnaces and three ovens, both of which would emit Carbon Monoxide (CO), Ammonia (NH3) and lethal amounts of Hydrogen Cyanide (HCN).   Action ...

  • Black carbon emissions of individual cars measured under real conditions

    Measurements of individual vehicle emissions are usually made in laboratory tests. In this study, researchers followed cars driving in real conditions to measure emissions of air pollutants, including black carbon and nitrogen oxides.
