  • 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 ...

  • Game theoretic analyses of nitrate emission reduction strategies in the Rhine river basin

    Pollution of transboundary rivers requires cooperation between the countries involved in order to alleviate the consequences. This paper applies game theoretic analyses to nitrate emissions in the Rhine river basin. It assumes that the 50% emission reduction policy agreed upon by the International Rhine Committee is individually rational for each source. This enables the estimation of a revealed ...

  • Strategy Paper for Reducing Methane Emissions

    The Strategy Paper for reducing methane emissions,which has just been approved by the Commission, describes the contribution man-made methane emissions, both at the global and European level, are making to the greenhouse effect and global warming. Although the focus in the global climate debate has often been on CO2 emissions, the major greenhouse gas, it needs to be underlined that methane is ...

  • The jobs impact of GHG reduction strategies in the USA

    This paper estimates the economic and jobs impact of the USA displacing 1.2 billion tons of carbon emissions annually by 2030 using energy efficiency and renewable energy. We assess the technologies deployed, their costs, and the necessary time frames. We then estimate the job impacts of the policy and find that it will generate more than 4.5 million net jobs. We disaggregate the jobs created by ...

  • 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 ...

  • Effects of CO2 emission reduction strategies on air pollution

    Emission reduction strategies for air pollutants such as SO2 and Ox as well as for greenhouse gases (GHGs) usually do not consider the interdependencies between emission reduction measures. Taking into account the relevant energy, environmental and political framework it is the objective of this study to determine the influence of CO2 ...

  • Model analyses of long and short term pollution emission reduction

    Climate change is influenced not only by the emissions of greenhouse gases, but also by the emissions of air pollutants which influence each other through complex interactions in the atmosphere. Reducing emissions could be one way to react and prevent negative impacts from climate change. Because these reductions must take place in the face of economic growth, there is a disagreement about the ...

  • Delaying substantial emission reductions limits climate policy choices

    If fast and substantial reduction in greenhouse gas emissions is postponed further, there are fewer options available to stay below the 2 °C warming target for the end of the century. Delayed action is likely to require measures that remove CO2 from the atmosphere by planting forests and using bioenergy in combination with carbon capture and storage. The latter technique ...

  • Evaluating emission mitigation strategies for sustainable transportation system: a system dynamics approach

    The sustainable development of urban transportation system demands a trade–off between economic, social, demographic, geographic, and political concerns. To address these concerns there is a need of induction of viable transportation policies. In order to examine, the effect of these policies, a system dynamics modelling framework has been presented. A simulation model has been developed to ...

  • LCP/IRP strategy development using an optimising energy-emission model

    This paper proposes an energy-emission modelling approach for the development of least-cost planning and integrated resource planning strategies for electric utilities, and presents results of the model application to the municipal electric utilities of Karlsruhe and Rottweil. The LCP/IRP strategy employed is based on the regulatory practice in Germany, also with regard to liberalisation issues. ...

    OVERVIEW 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.

  • WBA Fossil Exit Strategy

    After COP 21 (Paris): Fossil Exit Strategy 2030 One year after the conference in Paris, the world is moving away from the targets of COP21. The most embarrassing fact is the ongoing increase of the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere. This concentration reached 400ppm in 2014 for the first time in the human history. A value of 420 ppm is usually regarded ...

  • How to achieve a corporate sustainable strategy

    Organisations can achieve energy savings and capitalise on the financial incentives from carbon emissions reduction by implementing an effective sustainable strategy. A potential £1.6bn of available energy savings can be achieved in the UK corporate sector every year, yet hardly a fraction of these energy savings are being realised, according to a Carbon Trust estimation. A ...

  • A multi-criteria decision approach for choosing and ranking SO2 emission reduction measures for a network of power stations

    During recent years, it has become evident that power plants are a major source of pollution that causes changes in the chemistry and physics of the environment. In this paper, the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) was employed to develop a strategy for reducing sulphur dioxide emissions from a network of power plants in Kuwait by at least two-thirds. Along with NOx, sulphur dioxide is known to be ...

  • Peatlands in Indonesia National REDD+ Strategy

    In a unilateral effort, Indonesia committed to voluntarily reduce its GHG emissions by 2020 with 26% compared to a business as usual scenario. If assistance from foreign countries is made available, this target will be increased to up to 41%. In the draft National REDD+ Strategy (issued for public consultation on August 18, 2011), the Indonesian Government has identified peatland conservation ...
