  • An approach for road air emissions calculation: Portuguese case-study

    A methodology to estimate road transportation emissions was developed with the main objective of improving emission estimates for those pollutants that are most dependent on the vehicle class and abatement technology. Emissions were estimated with a detailed level of disaggregation allowing the evaluation of measures aiming key source groups rather than road traffic in general. Those measures ...

  • European Union CO2 emissions: different accounting perspectives

    The aim of this technical report is to explain to a wider audience the concepts and methodologies behind different air emission accounting perspectives and the resulting emissions data at the EU level. In brief, there are three of these different accounting perspectives: territorial, production and consumption. Three perspectives on air emissions The territorial ...

  • Emission behaviour of modern heavy duty vehicles in real world driving

    Within a national and two international research projects, a vehicle emission model was developed, which calculates emissions in real world driving from the engine emission maps by simulating engine power and engine speed. Influences of transient load changes on the emission level are taken into consideration by special functions. Model parameters are gained from a common measurement protocol on ...

  • A constant eye on emissions

    Due to increasingly rigorous requirements for regulatory and permit compliance, organisations are seeking more from all compliance support systems. The ability to expand systems to encompass new, or migrate existing, regulatory calculations used to monitor environmental performance is vital. Planning strategically for a scalable and sustainable system has been shown to reduce overall compliance ...

  • The road not chosen

    Analysis of data for historical consumption of the most important energy sources and carbon emission leads to a method to calculate the carbon emission with another fuel mix than the actual one. It is shown that a continued growth of nuclear power could have replaced the whole Kyoto process.Keywords: economy, ecology, nuclear power, nuclear energy, Kyoto protocol, carbon emissions, road not ...

  • CO2 impacts of transporting UK’s recovered paper and plastic bottles to China

    Exports of recovered materials for recycling overseas have grown at a rapid pace over the past decade. In 2007, 4.7 million tonnes of recovered paper and half a million tonnes of recovered plastics were exported. The principal destination for these exports was China. The environmental benefits of domestic recycling are well understood. However, one question often asked in respect of exports is ...

  • Implementing a Multi-Refinery Enivronmental Data Management System at Shell Oil Products U.S.

    time each year preparing routine reporting requirements. Besides looking for opportunities to simplify and expedite these reports, a multi-refinery corporation such as Shell Oil Products US (SOPUS) is also seeking opportunities to develop cross-refinery consistency and work practices. In order to accomplish these objectives, the installation and implementation of an Environmental Management ...

  • Development of emission factors for the control of lead and other metals during bridge construction work

    This study was conducted to develop emission rates and emission factors for lead and other metals during abrasive blasting and power tooling operations. Emission factors are useful in controlling process emissions since it allows for the extrapolation of emissions from one process to another related process. Area samples were collected inside the bridge containments and emission rates were ...

  • Refrigerant compliance includes calculating carbon emissions

    If you manage a facility using a refrigeration and air-conditioning (RAC) system or heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC-R) system, it’s time to comply with federal and state environmental laws regarding carbon emissions. To help reduce greenhouse gases, the law requires calculating carbon emissions. This means monitoring, collecting data and performing extensive reporting of CO2 ...

  • Air quality photochemical study over Amazonia Area, Brazil

    This work presents the results of a photochemical modelling system composed of MM5–SMOKE–CMAQ on Brazilian Amazonia area, been a pioneered implementation task. These results focus on the biogenic and biomass burning emissions and the impact of these emissions on regional air quality. Global and local anthropogenic emissions data, satellite–derived biomass burning inventories, ...

  • A GIS based air quality system for the Apulia region, southern Italy

    A GIS based air quality modelling system has been developed in Apulia region in the Southern Italy, to support local authorities in air quality management. Meteorological and dispersion simulations were performed for the year 2005. Predictions have been compared with concentration data from the air quality monitoring network. Results evidence a good correlation between predictions and ...

  • Understanding GHG verification requirements

    Many organizations are required to report greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to the U.S. EPA mandated by the Mandatory Reporting Rule (MRR).  Effective December 29, 2009, large sources and suppliers in the United States will begin collecting data on January 1, 2010 and report GHG emissions to EPA by March 31, 2011.  Similar to the EPA MRR, many states also have mandatory reporting requirements.  The ...

  • EPA proposes revisions to GHG mandatory reporting rule for stationary combustion sources

    This summer, EPA proposed several updates and amendments to the GHG Mandatory Reporting Rule (40 CFR Part 98). This activity is consistent with EPA’s stated intention to issue amendments and re-propose subparts (i.e., those subparts that were initially reserved upon finalization of the rule last October) by the end of 2010. EPA’s published revisions in the Federal Register on June 15, ...

  • Getting every ton of emissions right: An analysis of emission factors for purchased electricity in China

    In China, there are widespread errors on emission factors used to account for indirect emission from purchased electricity at the organizational level. Based on analysis of this working paper, if the wrong emission factors are used to account for purchased electricity in 2010, it could lead to over-estimation up to 49 percent in GHG emissions. Authors of this working paper argue that using ...
