  • Researchers are Advancing Science Using Micro Pulse LiDAR Technology

    There are so many examples of interesting research using Micro Pulse LiDAR (MPL) technology it is difficult to decide on my favorites; however, I have chosen to highlight the following two papers because these applications for the MPL and MiniMPL address problems that are very important to global health. ...

  • Tri-Mer catalytic ceramic filters use glass emissions filter technology with nano-bits of SCR catalyst embedded in the walls - Case study

    Filters are placed in housings and operate similarly to a “reverse pulse jet ceramic baghouse.” The filters are 10' long and 6" wide, with a wall thickness of approximately ¾ inch. Learn more information about Tri-Mer&rsquos;s hot gas filtration. ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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, ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Verification Programme

    Greenhouse Gas verification programme in the aluminum industry 1. BUSINESS CHALLENGE Over the past decade, the aluminum companies operating in Quebec have voluntarily achieved significant reductions in their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.  In 2002, the Aluminum Association of Canada and the Government of Quebec signed a covenant to voluntarily reduce an additional 200,000 tons of GHG ...

  • Climate negotiations from 1992 to 2011: changing issues and new stakes

    This paper describes the main stages of the climate negotiations since the Earth Summit in Rio in 1992. After recalling the main components of the Kyoto Protocol, it describes the stakes in the discussions for developing countries as well as the increasing importance taken by these countries. It finally explains how the logic of binding commitments to reduce emissions, which was at the core of ...

  • Quantifying Fugitive Emissions from Biodigesters

    Background Agricultural biodigesters reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions & generate clean energy. GHG reduction depends on many factors (design, feedstock, etc.), including the amount of fugitive CH4 emissions. Quantifying fugitive emissions is difficult -- commonly assumed: 15% of total CH4 production (California Climate Action Registry ) 15% of ...

  • Formalising the building sector in the renewal of international climate change treaty

    The global communities, in the course of strategising actions to combat global warming, have recognised the huge potential of the building sector to mitigate climate change through reducing the sector's greenhouse gases emission. International organisations have begun campaigning for the building sector to be fully recognised in the renewal of international climate change treaty that will replace ...

  • Federal Agency: CRAC unit

    The United States Social Security Administration (SSA) is an independent agency of the United States federal government that administers Social Security, a social insurance program consisting of retirement, disability, and survivors’ benefits. The agency has 10 regional offices (of which Richmond is one). In its Strategic Sustainability Plan, June ...

  • A selective catalytic system for greenhouse gas (NOx) emission reduction at a 2–ethyl hexanol plant

    Trends of ambient NOX levels in the Jubail Industrial City, Saudi Arabia, are increasing, and the regulators have identified areas requiring substantial reductions to control the atmospheric NOX concentrations. In this study, a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system for the control of NOX ...

  • Why US Carbon Prices Will Be Low

    Byron Swift and Aldyen Donnelly argue that the US will be a net seller of carbon. Financial signals show that the price of carbon reductions in the United States to meet the Kyoto Protocol would be low – less than $6 per ton of carbon dioxide (CO2), or $20 per ton of carbon. This low price indicates quite clearly that most US carbon reductions will be achieved domestically, international trading ...

  • Case study -Carbon footprint for major oil refining company in Abu Dhabi

    Anticipating Future Legislative Requirements In 2011 WKC assisted a major oil refining company in the UAE with an extensive programme to quantify their entire organizational GHG emissions in a systematic manner. The project was developed in anticipation of future legislation related to Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions reduction in the UAE, opportunities offered by the ...

  • TEAM Program Gets SMART with ClimateCHECK

    TEAM is a Canadian government program that supports clean technology projects by providing funding at the pre-commercial stage. Because the program’s mandate limits support to projects that can prove greenhouse gas reductions, TEAM relies on consultants to complete the required GHG project reporting.Reports use the program-specifi c SMART methodology, considered to be the gold standard for GHG ...

  • Harmonising equity and efficiency in allocating global post-Kyoto GHG emissions

    In this paper, a non-parametric efficiency analysis approach is presented for determining Greenhouse Gases (GHG) tradable emissions allowances for all countries. The approach has two steps: expansion and contraction. In the expansion step and given its population, each country is projected on the efficient frontier and a maximum GDP and associated energy and GHG emissions levels are computed. ...

  • Comparison of legislative climate change targets in the 110th congress

    The World Resources Institute’s analysis of emissions targets and cumulative emissions budgets attempts to objectively, fairly and accurately compare GHG reductions from explicit carbon caps and complementary policies contained in climate proposals submitted in the 110th Congress. Emissions from capped sectors are calculated based on the text of the respective legislation. For sectors that are ...

  • 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 ...

  • Application of an optimisation model to studying some aspects of Russia's economic development

    The global climate change is one of the most important and disputable problems in the modern world. The Kyoto Protocol is an effort of the international community to control environmental impacts. To study pros and cons of Russia's participation in this initiative, different integrated assessment models for evaluating greenhouse gases (GHG) reduction policies can be engaged. In the present paper, ...

  • Scenario study for a regional low-carbon society

    Japan should undertake drastic greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions by the middle of this century in order to mitigate climate change problems. Municipalities should design and execute scenarios toward a low-carbon society suited to their respective regions. This study describes long-term future visions developed for Shiga Prefecture targeting CO2 emission reductions of 30–50% by 2030, and ...

  • Is the United Nations' REDD scheme conservation colonialism by default?

    The paper assesses Australian aid programmes to Indonesia that are designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation. It is envisaged that reductions in deforestation will generate a stock of UN recognised carbon credits for Indonesia. The Australian government hopes to offset 50% of its own emissions by buying up international carbon credits, and has a direct interest in securing ...
