  • Bringing ecosystem markets to scale in the Southern United States

    For the most part, Ecosystem Markets still linger in the early stages of development. There is much more theoretical work to be done to set up environmental credit markets, including carbon offsets and payments for watershed services. But more pilot projects can also help these markets evolve and show how they might work in the real world. Development pressures in the U.S. South often mean ...

  • An optical method for characterizing carbon content in ceramic pot filters

    Ceramic pot filter (CPF) technology is a relatively common means of household water treatment in developing areas, and performance characteristics of CPFs have been characterized using production CPFs, experimental CPFs fabricated in research laboratories, and ceramic disks intended to be CPF surrogates. There is evidence that CPF manufacturers do not always fire their products according to ...

  • How does carbon price change? Evidences from EU ETS

    By proposing the hypotheses for carbon price volatility, this paper uses variance ratio and Ensemble Empirical Mode Decomposition (EEMD) to analyse the carbon price. Results show that carbon market is temperature–sensitive, affected by seasonal changes, which presents a style of movement amplitude; carbon price is affected by the market mechanism at a high frequency, with the duration being less ...

  • If carbon pricing is so great, why isn’t it working?

    Political hurdles and low prices have made carbon pricing a low-impact affair. But there’s still hope it can help limit climate change. Earth’s atmosphere has long served as a free dump for carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases generated by humans. That is changing as policy-makers embrace economists’ advice that the best way to cut greenhouse gas emissions is to charge an ...

  • Carbon fiber on the DELTA FORCE boom range

    Lower weight gives a more stable boom Carbon fiber helps the boom in many areas, primarily due to the low weight and the stiffness of the material which is one of its most distinguished strengths. The lower weight means that the center part gets fewer strengths to be controlled when the boom must be precisely controlled above the crop on rough ground. It is not much use to have a ...
