  • Emissions reduction with Diesel blending

    Diesel technologies are develops by huge rates. Modification of cars with diesel engines make a half of the new cars sold in Europe. The black smoke, noisy engine operation and unpleasant smell remained far in the past. Today diesel engines present not only profitability, but also high capacity and worthy dynamic characteristics. Quality of fuel also is changed. The modern diesel blending has ...

  • Peatlands: hotspots for emissions reductions

    Peatlands play a critical role in climate regulation, storing twice as much carbon as the entire world’s forest biomass and emitting large amounts of carbon when drained. Peat carbon stocks are distributed worldwide. The mitigation potential is very significant, but possible future possible emissions as well if no rapid action is taken to protect and restore them. The UNFCCC provides ...

  • Optimizing VOC Combustion - Case Study

    Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are pre-cursors to Ozone pollution and subject to EPA regulations. Thermal and catalytic oxidizers are routinely used to destroy VOC emissions from a variety of industrial sources. ...

  • 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 ...

  • Emissions reductions under The Waxman-Markey discussion draft

    This analysis provides an assessment of reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that could be achieved by the measures contained in the Waxman-Markey Discussion Draft (WM-DD) released on March 31, ...

  • Breathe easy: The importance of emission reduction and energy efficiency

    Breathe easy Blue oil mist is an unwelcome by-product of industrial work in the energy sector. contec specialises in high-powered, energy efficient and environmentally friendly oil mist filtration systems that reduce health risks and are an inexpensive alternative to traditional exhaust piping. The high concentrations of blue oil mist produced by industrial ...

  • Uncertainties Pervade GHG Emission Reduction Projects

    James Wintergreen and Elizabeth Delaney outline the difficulties encountered in assessing the likely quantity and value of emission reductions from a potential CDM ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction: Capral Aluminium

     Background Capral Aluminium Limited has operations in Australia and New Zealand and is a producer of refined aluminium ingots and supplier of semi-fabricated and fabricated products. Capral is a major exporter of primary aluminium and sheet products to Asia. Capral also runs two aluminium recycling facilities with a total capacity of 70,000 tonnes per year. The Company's vision ...


  • The potential of energy conservation and emission reduction for the Chinese boilers

    With the publication of the coal convert to gas fired boiler policy, to control the pollution from the resource, all the provinces has removed, stopped and reformed to the high energy saving coal fired boilers. It is reported that there is a huge space in the energy saving and emission. low combustion, high energy saving potential the Chinese industrial boiler has a wide market,and most of them ...


  • Government ignores carbon emission reductions during recession

    DECC remains confident that existing plans to cut carbon emissions by 2020 will serve to achieve carbon targets, reports Envido. In its response to the first annual report from the independent Committee on Climate Change (CCC), the government accepted the committee's recommendation to effectively ignore carbon emission reductions that have been achieved as a result of the economic downturn. The ...

  • Designing “Measurable” Post-2020 emissions reduction commitments

    As climate negotiations kick off this week in Warsaw, Poland (COP 19), the stakes are high. The recently published UNEP Emissions Gap Report finds that countries are falling woefully short of the action required to avoid ...

  • Not there yet! Emissions reduction pledges fall short of 2 degree centigrade goal

    According to an analysis published (PDF) by the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment. there is a gap between current ambitions and the actions that need to be taken to limit a rise in global average temperature to no more than 2°C ...

  • Economic Evaluation of Emission Reductions of HFCs, PFCs and SF6 in Europe

     Introduction The Kyoto Protocol under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) regulates emissions of carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs) and sulphur hexafluoride. Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFC) are chemically related anthropogenic greenhouse gases. Because of their depleting ...

  • Modelling the complex factors driving CO2 emission reduction efforts

    Chapman (2007) observes that transport accounts for 26% of global CO2 emissions and it is one of the few industrial sectors where emissions are still growing and are expected to add to environmental degradation. Although generic motivating factors identified in the literature have contributed somewhat to knowledge, there is a need to develop a clearer understanding of the motivations driving ...

  • 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 ...

  • Benchmark selection impact and uncertainty in emission reductions for selected case study projects

    The efficiency of Joint Implementation (JI) and the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) can be seriously harmed as investors and hosts of JI/CDM investments are trying to maximise emission reduction credits. The easiest way to invoke gaming in emission reductions is the selection of an overestimated baseline and credit "non-real" emission reductions. The baseline which is inherently a ...

  • Reduction of the Emissions of HFC`s, PFC`s and SF6 in the European Union

     The report provides a first estimate of the development of the EU-wide use and emissions in 2005 and 2010 of the three industrial halogenated gases included in the Kyoto protocol, namely hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs) and sulphur hexafluoride (SF6). It also makes a preliminary assessment of the options and costs of controlling these three gases, as well as of the ...
