  • 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 ...

  • Greenhouse gas emissions from waste management-assessment of quantification methods

    Of the many sources of urban greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, solid waste is the only one for which management decisions are undertaken primarily by municipal governments themselves and is hence often the largest component of cities’ corporate inventories. It is essential that decision-makers select an appropriate quantification methodology and have an appreciation of methodological ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
