  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...


  • 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 ...


  • Comprehensive analysis of greenhouse gas emissions in Hungary

    This paper overviews the anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions in Hungary in the period 1985–95. The emissions have been determined and reported according to the IPCC methodologies. The emissions of greenhouse gases decreased until 1994, basically as a result of the economic recession. Hungary has chosen the yearly average emission level of 1985–87 as the base level. In 1994, greenhouse gas ...

  • Urban transport policies and greenhouse gas emissions in Brussels

    This paper analyses the greenhouse gas emissions from private transport in the Brussels-Capital region. A system of models integrating urban development, mobility and air pollution is proposed. We consider the 2005 perspective, comparing "business-as-usual", "polycentric" and "peripheral" scenarios of urban development and mobility in the city. Analysis with a focus on several important areas ...

  • Linking greenhouse gas markets around the world

    Shortly after the publication of the ISO 14064 standards for greenhouse gas (GHG) accounting and verification in March 2006, the climate change sector embraced these policy-neutral tools, developed by 175 experts from around the world between 2002 and 2006. The relevance of ISO 14064 is witnessed by its adoption (with modifications in some cases) or recommendation by leading GHG programs and ...

  • Launching of ISO 14064 for greenhouse gas accounting and verification

    ISO was preparing to launch its new international greenhouse gas (GHG) accounting and verification standards – the three-part ISO 14064 – when this issue of ISO Management Systems went to press. ISO’s goal in developing the standards is to provide a set of unambiguous and verifiable requirements or specifications to support organizations and proponents of GHG emission reduction projects. When ...


  • Most Companies Get Greenhouse Gas Reports Wrong

    Most of the world’s largest companies do not report their greenhouse gas emissions fully or correctly and do not have the data independently verified, a study by an environmental research body showed on Wednesday. Companies are under pressure worldwide from policymakers, and a public increasingly concerned with ...

  • 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 2009

    This report presents an analysis of historic and projected trends of greenhouse gas emissions in Europe. It assesses the current and projected progress of EU Member States, EU candidate countries and other EEA member countries towards their respective targets under the Kyoto Protocol and under EU commitments for 2020. This analysis is based on greenhouse gas emissions inventories for 1990 to ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Emission Trends and Projections in Europe

    Untitled Document Abstract The actual and projected progress (by 2010) of the EU and candidate countries towards reaching their targets under the Kyoto ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Inventories and Wastewater Treatment Plants

    ABSTRACT A greenhouse gas inventory identifies the sources and quantities of GHG emissions from a facility or a larger organization. Several best practice standards exist that provide guidance for conducting GHG inventories for industrial facilities like a WWTP. Key considerations in a WWTP GHG inventory will include emissions associated with thefacility’s energy use as well as methane ...

  • Greenhouse gas emission trends and projections in Europe 2007

    The latest projections from pre-2004 EU Member States (EU-15) show that the EU-15 can meet, and may even overachieve, its 2008–2012 Kyoto target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 8 % below 1990 levels if Member States implement now all additional policies being planned. Based on Member States projections, existing domestic policies and measures will reduce EU-15 greenhouse gas emissions by a ...
