  • 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 ...

  • 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 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 ...

  • 2011 Greenhouse Gas Inventory and Sustainability Report

    In order to mitigate the worst impacts of climate change, the world must reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions enough to keep global average temperature rise to 2°C above pre-industrial levels. WRI aims to do its part by curbing its own emissions. As WRI’s global staff and presence has expanded in recent years, we have seen a rise in our emissions. Our Fiscal Year 2011 (Oct. 2010 ...

  • 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. ...
