  • 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) ...

  • Global carbon credits and climate exchanges

    This study analyses the carbon credits contracts as a market-based mechanism to solve the global environmental problem by offering monetary rewards to countries and corporations that are low greenhouse emitters and putting economic pressure on those that are high greenhouse emitters. The mechanism is a by-product of the Kyoto Protocol which came into effect on February 16, 2005. There are two ...

  • Capturing biogas energy to increase your business profits while safeguarding the environment

    Methane is a biogas produced from swine or cow manure, as well as food processing and meat packing waste. Methane is a natural gas, that when left uncollected, contributes to the harmful greenhouse gases in the earth’s atmosphere. When biogas is captured under a cover and becomes concentrated, it creates a corrosive and toxic byproduct called hydrogen sulfide. The gas generates a rotten egg ...

  • Energy tax credits and the devil in congress

    It is difficult to get beyond the hyperbole of the election season to uncover a candidate’s true position. The non-partisan Pew Center on Global Climate Change performed a service with a recently released just-the-facts guide on the energy platforms of the presidential contenders http://www.pewclimate.org/voter-guide.What is remarkable about this year’s ...

  • Are you eligible for a manufacturing tax credit?

    The United States has been generous with tax credits for energy production. But until now, it’s been somewhat miserly about giving breaks to those who make the equipment that makes the energy – or saves it.That’s changed with creation of the Advanced Energy Manufacturing Credit (MTC), part of the federal stimulus package. The 30% tax credit makes $2.3 billion available for new, expanded, or ...

  • 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 ...

  • Composting generates cash for greenhouse gas benefits

    Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) recently finalized an initiative to develop a protocol for issuing offsets to projects that avoid greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through composting or other similar approaches. This article explores the development of the new protocol, reviews its key attributes and describes how an entity can earn tradable credits for its GHG mitigation project. In 1992, the U.S. ...

  • 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 ...

  • Laser gas detector systems for greenhouse gas emissions monitoring

    Two types of portable laser based gas detector for measuring emissions of the greenhouse gases carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) from oil and gas operations are described. A scanning open path detector was developed within a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the USEPA. This system scans multiple paths across an area source in rapid succession, enabling calculation ...

  • Greenhouse gas mitigation in the United States: An overview of the current policy landscape

    In 2009, at the 15th meeting of the Conference of the Parties, President Barack Obama pledged to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions “in the range of a 17 percent emission reduction by 2020 compared with 2005 levels.” To date, this pledge is not enshrined in or supported by any domestic law. However, a variety of federal policies and programs are directly and indirectly ...

  • EPA plans to make greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reporting mandatory

    Mandatory carbon (CO2) emissions reporting is more important than ever as the United States works with facilities to reduce substances known to adversely affect air quality, the climate, and lead to global warming. Most of the known matter that is destroying the earth’s ozone layer and contributing to global warming is derived from manmade compounds and chemicals with high global warming ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Emissions trading and duties of the state: A preliminary review of Alberta’s specified Gas Emitters Regulation

    In July 2007 the oil endowed Canadian province of Alberta launched the first compliance emissions trading scheme for greenhouse gases in North America under its Specified Gas Emitters Regulation. This paper reviews key aspects of the programme including scope, performance credit trading and project offsetting with comparative reference to other carbon emissions trading schemes. The paper ...

  • Reduction of greenhouse gases in developing countries

    The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is an arrangement under the Kyoto Protocol allowing industrialized countries with a green house gas reduction commitment (called Annex 1 countries) to invest in projects that reduce emissions of GHGs in developing countries as an alternative to more expensive emission reductions in their own countries. The most important factor of a carbon project is that it ...


  • Greenhouse Gases-California-Things to Know

    Here are some things to know about California Gov. Jerry Brown's new target for reducing carbon emissions that contribute to climate change. WHAT DO THE NUMBERS MEAN? Brown set a goal for the state to reduce emissions to 40 percent below what they were in 1990. Countries set that year as a benchmark for climate change when they signed on to the U.N. Kyoto Protocol, an ...

  • Kenya’s first carbon credits from geothermal energy pay for schools

    Last month, I drove through dust on bumpy dirt roads from Nairobi to visit the Oloirowua Primary School in Suswa, 140 kilometers northeast of the Kenya capital. The school sits on the vast savannah near Hell’s Gate National Park, an area with substantial geothermal potential. Here, KenGen, Kenya’s electric generating company, has built the ...
