  • Bioenergy and greenhouse gases

    Branches, stalks, and manure are waste no longer; bioenergy is part of the solution to reducing greenhouse-gas emissions. A study released by the Green Power Institute, the Renewable Energy Program of the Pacific Institute, reports that converting forest residues, agricultural and urban biomass waste, and gases from manure and landfills into energy helps reduce our greenhouse-gas emissions and ...

  • Effects of 17β‐estradiol on emissions of greenhouse gases in simulative natural water body

    Environmental estrogens (EEs) are widely spread across the world and becoming more and more seriously contaminating. This paper studies the influence of different concentrations of 17β‐estradiol (E2) on the emissions of main greenhouse gases (CO2, CH4 and N2O) in simulative systems in order to explore the relationship between EEs pollution and greenhouse gases emissions in natural water bodies ...

  • MANAGING GREENHOUSE GASES IN THE DEVELOPING CARBON MARKETS

    Introduction On February 16, 2005, the Kyoto Protocol entered into force following Russia’s ratification after a lengthy period of uncertainty. Although the US and Australia have stated that they will not ratify the Protocol, here, too, there are initiatives by state governments and by the private sector to reducegreenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Firms are now faced with important strategic ...

  • How to better manage refrigerant gases in order to reduce greenhouse gases (GHGs)

    Carbon emissions reporting requires detailed monitoring record keeping of emission sources. Reducing a company's CO2 emissions has an impact on climate change. Carbon reporting needs to be approached in a structured organized way. Doing so in this way is known as carbon management. Carbon (CO2) Emissions Reporting: It's the law. In many countries, carbon emissions are required by law to be ...

  • Reducing Greenhouse Gases from Sewage Solids Incinerators

     ABSTRACT There is increased interest in incineration of sewage solids because of restrictions on land application of sewage solids and increasing concerns about transportation costs and emissions. New installations and upgraded incineration facilities have become more fuel efficient and have incorporated much better air emissions control equipment to reduce air emissions. With the ...

  • Energy consumption and greenhouse gases emissions from the use of alternative water sources in South East Queensland

    Between 1999 and 2007, several successive years of severe drought put South East Queensland's water supply under immense pressure. The decision was taken in 2005 to build a seawater desalination plant and three water recycling advanced treatment plants as part of a large investment plan to secure the region's potable water supply. The infrastructure built and commissioned in the past 3 years has ...

  • Characterization of Fugitive Emissions of Greenhouse Gases from a Wastewater Treatment Plant Using The Radial Plume Mapping Technique

    An existing anaerobic wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) near Bucaramanga, Colombia is being upgraded to include nitrification/denitrification and improvements in capture and recovery of methane. The existing plant utilizes upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactors followed by facultative lagoons. For this project, the UASB reactors will be retrofit to maximize the collection of biogas, and ...

  • Economic damage control for greenhouse gas emissions

    Future emissions of trace gases are intrinsically linked to economic growth and abatement policies, which in turn, are governed by expectations of greenhouse damages. Trace gas indices that depend upon future emissions can be calculated either on the basis of emissions scenarios, such as those devised by the IPCC, or using optimal control techniques where the trade-off between damages and ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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

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

  • Bottom line on regulating greenhouse gases under the clean air act

    How can the EPA regulate GHGs? Doesn’t the Clean Air Act only apply to air pollutants? An April 2007 Supreme Court decision (Massachusetts v. EPA) ruled that GHGs are air pollutants under the Clean Air Act. The court instructed the EPA to decide whether GHG emissions endanger public health and/or welfare, or if current science is too uncertain to make a reasonable judgment. In response to the ...

  • Regulation of greenhouse gases under section 115 of The Clean Air Act

    Section 115 of the Clean Air Act, among the various options under the current act, may offer EPA the most effective, flexible, economically reasonable, and legally supportable means by which to regulate greenhouse gas emissions. The authors argue that Section 115, the section explicitly crafted to address international air pollution, has the potential to provide an appropriately flexible path ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Limiting greenhouse gas emissions: is the Cancun agreement enough?

    The objective set by the IPPC of limiting the increase in average global temperature to +2°C compared with the pre–industrial era is now accepted by all concerned. This ambitious objective was recognised at the Copenhagen Conference in 2009 and confirmed at Cancun in 2010. There are still no restrictive measures, but to achieve this objective, the main countries contributing to the ...

  • Rice-related greenhouse gases in Japan, variations in scale and time and significance for the Kyoto Protocol

    The contribution of rice production to the three major greenhouse gases CO2, CH4 and N2O in 1990, the base year of the Kyoto protocol is investigated for Japan. For the CO2 assessment, we use a top-down life cycle approach, CH4 is assessed using the Japanese GHG emission inventory and N2O is assessed according to the ratio of rice area divided by the total area of agricultural soils. In total, ...
