  • A Critical Evaluation of the South African Air Quality Offsets Guideline

    There is wide recognition in South Africa to the link between the quality of life and quality of the air we breathe. The Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) attempts to improve air quality through two key regulatory tools; emission limits, which regulate the maximum concentration of certain pollutants permissible within certain, ‘listed’ industrial stacks or vents, and ambient ...

  • Two Detector Solution to Analyzing Sulfur

    Sulfur compounds are reactive, corrosive to pipes, and destructive to catalysts in petroleum refineries. Sulfur emission are strictly regulated globally. When released into the atmosphere sulfur dioxide converts to sulfuric acid resulting in adverse effects on human health and the environment. Sulfur detection is found useful in many other industries; therefore, detection of sulfur compounds in ...

  • Which sectors should be covered by emissions trading regulations?

    For the first time, the US Congress is debating climate change policy in a serious way. A number of bills have been introduced that would establish greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions trading programs as part of efforts to address climate change. In discussions on climate policy proposals, the stringency and timing of emissions reduction targets are often seen as determining program costs. Allocation ...

  • Legislation Note: Emissions Trading in the United Kingdom: The Greenhouse Gas Emissions Trading Scheme (Amendment) and National Emissions Inventory Regulations 2005 and the Greenhouse Gas Emissions Trading Regulations 2005

    A greenhouse gas emissions trading scheme is an arrangement in which allowances to emit such gases, usually measured in tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent, are allocated to industrial plant and recorded in a central register. The emissions of greenhouse gas from that plant are then measured, in accordance with protocols, and reported to a central authority at regular intervals. At the end of a ...

  • Soil formate regulates the fungal nitrous oxide emission pathway

    Fungal activity is a major driver in the global nitrogen cycle, and mounting evidence suggests that fungal denitrification activity contributes significantly to soil emissions of the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide (N2O). The metabolic pathway and oxygen requirement for fungal denitrification are different from those for bacterial denitrification. We hypothesized that the soil N2O emission from ...

  • Suddenly greenhouse gas regulations

    FROM a whisper to a scream, from 0 to 60 in 4 seconds or less, whether you prefer music metaphors or car metaphors, all of a sudden it seems that regulation of greenhouse gases (GHGs) is about to descend upon us. My reading list on the plane today includes the new U.S. Environmental Protection Agency GHG reporting requirements, a draft protocol from the California Climate Action Registry (CCAR) ...

  • Notes on environmental regulation and growth

    This paper looks at the costs of regulating the environment on economic growth in a model that has increasing returns to scale in production at lower levels of development. It concludes that these costs are low, as are the costs of moving from a non-optimal regulatory policy to an optimal one. The implied shape of the Environmental Kuznets Curve may have one or two humps, but this depends upon ...

  • The shifting sands of GHG regulation

    So far this year, there have been significant developments on U.S. climate change policy, including movement toward mandatory reporting and regulation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions at the federal level via either a cap-and-trade program or possibly existing Clean Air Act mechanisms. While the specifics are still uncertain regarding how these regulatory developments and legislative actions ...

  • Reducing the Economic Friction of Regulation

    Last month, we looked at two distinctly different bioenergy business models that are merging. Energy profit centers and waste cost-recovery facilities are learning the benefits of each other's business model. The resulting projects generate maximum revenue with lower production costs. The same kind of business model duality occurs in biomass energy regulation. There are more than two kinds of ...

  • Economic modelling of sulphur regulations in Poland

    This study presents an assessment of the possible consequences of reducing the emission of sulphur dioxide in Poland according to international sulphur agreement. A computable general equilibrium model was used for this purpose. The model, calibrated for 1995, provides results for year 2010 which suggest that future emission reductions may have positive effects on Polish economic indicators. We ...
