  • 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 ...

  • WMO Greenhouse gas bulletin

    The latest analysis of data from the WMO-GAW Global Greenhouse Gas Monitoring Network, a comprehensive network of the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS), shows that the globally averaged mixing ratios of carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) have reached new highs in 2007 with CO2 at 383.1 ppm, CH4 at 1789 ppb and N2O at 320.9 ppb. These values are higher than those in ...

  • New greenhouse gas on the surge

    NILU scientists at the Zeppelin Observatory on Mount Zeppelin on the Arctic island of Ny-Alesund, are recording a surge in a highly potent greenhouse gas, called HFC134a. One molecule of HFC134a has a warming effect more than a thousand times that of a molecule of ...

  • New Greenhouse Gas Standards

    The D.C. District Court recently upheld the decision allowing EPA to regulate greenhouse gas emissions. This white paper provides you background on the decision, what it means for you, and how to keep your plant compliant. Catalytic Products International will continue to stay abreast of these sweeping changes and we’ll continue to keep you informed. As EPA gears up to begin regulation of ...

  • 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) ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Emissions Control

    Most of the time, people think about Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions with carbon dioxide, which is the most common of the GHGs. While fairly typical, carbon dioxide isn’t the only GHG U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates.  Since EPA has begun regulating GHG emissions under its Clean Air Act authority, sources of emissions from others may require add-on air pollution ...

  • Expert Installation Services Soar to New Heights

    Along with providing equipment to solve customer’s complex VOC, NOx, and Odor pollution challenges, we also provide installation services. I was on site for the recent “lift” of a new QUADRANT SR-35,000 Thermal Oxidizer (TO). Capital equipment, like a Thermal Oxidizer, is designed to operate for many years; however wear and tear eventually may require the equipment to be ...

  • World Greenhouse Gas Emissions in 2005

    World Greenhouse Gas Emissions in 2005 is a comprehensive view of global, anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The chart in this working paper is an updated version of the original chart, which appeared in Navigating the Numbers: Greenhouse Gas Data and International Climate Policy (WRI, ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Abatement and Climate Change

    This note describes the World Bank’s involvement in efforts to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and to promote energy efficiency. The objective of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (FCCC) is to achieve 'stabilization of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system.' The Convention is also ...


  • Greenhouse Gas Emissions: A Systems Approach

    Untitled Document Engineers have an important role to fulfil as the focus of climate change discussions shifts from policy to implementation. We need to promote rigorous, proven ...

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 ...


  • Sustainable procurement: human rights and greenhouse gas emissions

    This paper reports on research based on the University of Leeds' supply chain as part of its sustainable development programme. The research examines the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions in its supply chain and preventing human rights abuses by its suppliers. This paper is based on a case study of the University of Leeds and its suppliers using qualitative interviews combined with a ...

  • Greenhouse gas emission trends and projections 2005

    Projections show that the pre-2004 EU Member States (EU-15) could cut their total emissions to 9.3% below 1990 levels by 2010 with a combination of existing domestic policies and measures already implemented, additional policies and measures currently being planned and the use of credits from emissions-saving projects in third countries through the Kyoto Protocol's 'flexible mechanisms'. Thus the ...

  • WRI 2010 Organizational Greenhouse Gas Inventory

    WRI’s 2010 inventory revealed emissions of 4,309 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (mt CO2e). This is 2.3 times the 2009 inventory of 1,326 mt CO2e. This increase is mainly attributed to the inclusion of scope 3 accounting, based on WRI’s recently published ...

  • Greenhouse gas reduction through social inclusion in Brazil

    With the objective to offer contributions to resolve ecological, social and economic problems in Amazonia, Brazil's sustainable production of palm oil legislation has the specific goal of mobilising public administrations, private business, social aid agencies and family farmers with the following overall objectives: create employment and increase income by means of palm cultivation; reforest ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Reductions from Demand-Side Management

    This paper discusses greenhouse gas reductions gained through demand-side management programs. Demand-side management programs are designed to educate consumers to reduce energy consumption by improving energy efficiency and modifying energy use levels. These programs conducted by utilities result in decreased amounts of greenhouse gas emissions. However, utilities are often restricted from using ...

  • Wastewater Treatment Plant Monitors Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    Globally, little attention is paid to gaseous emissions from wastewater treatment processes. This contrasts greatly with the regulatory monitoring that is applied to the quality of water emissions from such facilities. However, in Helsinki, Finland, a large municipal wastewater treatment facility continuously monitors its emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) to help in the city’s efforts to ...

  • The cost to Australia of reducing greenhouse gas emissions

    Australia has a particular interest in the greenhouse issue and control of greenhouse gas emissions. Although the economy is reliant on energy-intensive industries, Australia has been one of those countries prepared to make substantial commitments to reducing emissions. This paper describes the potential impact on Australia of the cost of these commitments, with a particular focus on ...

  • Greenhouse gas emission trends and projections in Europe 2011

    This report presents an overview of the progress made by the EU, its Member States and other EEA member countries towards their GHG emission targets. It first assesses current progress towards targets under the Kyoto Protocol (KP), mainly based on historic GHG emissions data for the first three years of the KP's five-year first commitment period (2008–2012). The following chapter summarises ...

  • Understanding the business implications of greenhouse gas emissions

    Introduction Much has been written over recent years about climate change,greenhouse gases (GHGs) and more recently the proposed control measures of Climate Change Levy (CCL) and carbon taxes. Most of this has looked at the scientitic aspects of climate change and the macroeconomics of the embryonic government instruments intended to reduce GHG emissions. This paper will focus more on the ...
