  • The reduction of greenhouse gas emissions using various thermal systems in a landfill site

    In this paper, the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions from an uncontrolled landfill site filled with Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) are compared with those from controlled sites in which collected Landfill Gases (LFG) are utilised by various technologies. These technologies include flaring, conventional electricity generation technologies such as Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) and Gas Turbine (GT) and ...

  • New York releases greenhouse gas emissions reduction plan

    On June 25, 2015, the 2015 New York State Energy Plan was released, outlining a 40 percent reduction in emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) from 1990 to 2030 and an 80 percent reduction by 2050. The aggressive plan would achieve the reduction in GHG emissions through changes to power, transportation, buildings, and industry ...

  • Reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from sewage sludge aerobic compost in China

    Sewage sludge is an important contributor to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and the carbon budget of organic solid waste treatment and disposal. In this case study, total GHG emissions from an auto-control sludge compost system, including direct and indirect emissions and replaceable reduction due to sludge compost being reused as fertilizer, were quantified. The results indicated that no ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Peatlands: hotspots for emissions reductions

    Peatlands play a critical role in climate regulation, storing twice as much carbon as the entire world’s forest biomass and emitting large amounts of carbon when drained. Peat carbon stocks are distributed worldwide. The mitigation potential is very significant, but possible future possible emissions as well if no rapid action is taken to protect and restore them. The UNFCCC provides ...

  • 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 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 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 ...

  • The power generation sector's demand for fossil fuels: a quantitative assessment on the viability of carbon fees for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions

    The demand for fossil fuels by Ontario's conventional steam power generation sector is examined in this paper. It is hypothesised that the enactment of a carbon fee policy will induce a change in the relative prices of the three fuels used in this sector (coal, natural gas and heavy fuel oil). This would lead to substantial interfuel substitution and greenhouse gas abatement. The demand share ...

  • Higher EU energy efficiency and renewable energy targets enable greenhouse gas emissions reductions of more than 50% in 2030

    An assessment of greenhouse gas emissions in 2030 associated with a 30% renewable energy target and 30-40% energy efficiency targets. The EU has put forward a greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction target of ‘at least’ 40% by 2030, compared to 1990 emissions levels. Current plans1 are to achieve this by reducing energy demand by at least 27%2 and achieving a renewable energy ...

  • Determination of greenhouse gas emission reductions from sewage sludge anaerobic digestion in China

    Sewage sludge is a considerable source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission in the field of organic solid waste treatment and disposal. In this case study, total GHG emissions from sludge anaerobic digestion, including direct and indirect emissions as well as replaceable emission reduction due to biogas being reused instead of natural gas, were quantified respectively. The results indicated that ...

  • Reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) generation and energy consumption in wastewater treatment plants

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) emission and energy consumption by on-site and off-site sources were estimated in two different wastewater treatment plants that used physical–chemical or biological processes for the removal of contaminants, and an anaerobic digester for sludge treatment. Physical–chemical treatment processes were used in the treatment plant of a locomotive repair factory that ...
