  • Carbon Monoxide (CO) Versus Carbon Dioxide (CO2)

    Carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO2) are often mistaken for one another. Both gases are odourless and colorless and target the cardiovascular system. Both gases can enter the body through inhalation, skin and / or eye. Similar symptoms that both gases have in common are headaches, dizziness, seizures, and hallucination. Most people have a hard time determining the difference and do not ...

  • The Dangers of CO2 - Carbon Dioxide Gas Detection

    What is Carbon Dioxide? Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a gas which occurs naturally in the Earth’s atmosphere at a rate of 400 parts per million (ppm). It is colourless, odourless and non-flammable. ...

  • Bedbug Problem? Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Solution.

    Bedbug infestation is an extremely common problem worldwide. Bedbugs are small, nocturnal parasites that feed off of warm blooded animals and humans. They can survive in a wide range of temperature, low humidity and live for a year without eating. Adults can measure up to 5 mm in length and up to 3 mm wide. They are attracted to carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in human respiration and body warmth. ...

  • Can we bury the carbon dioxide problem?

    Seriously — carbon capture and storage could be a game-changer. Mention “carbon capture and storage” — the process of trapping carbon dioxide produced in fossil-fuel burning or other industrial processes and burying it underground — in polite company, and you’re likely to be pounced on. It’s absurdly expensive. It can never be rolled ...

  • CO2 Monitor For Breweries: Carbon Dioxide Safety and How to Stay Safe

    Carbon dioxide is a necessary byproduct of the brewing process, yet too much CO2 can be dangerous to employee health. In Germany, two workers died at the same brewery in 2012 due to hazardous levels of CO2 present in beer mixing and pressure tanks. Learn more about how CO2 levels can get out of control during the beer brewing process and ways to protect your staff from this deadly gas.  ...

  • Carbon Dioxide Enhanced Oil Recovery: A Critical Domestic Energy, Economic, and Environmental Opportunity

    Introduction: Amidst economic uncertainty, fiscal crisis and political division over energy policy, carbon dioxide enhanced oil recovery (CO2-EOR) offers a safe and commercially proven method of domestic oil production that can help the United States simultaneously address three urgent national priorities:  Increasing our nation’s energy security by ...

  • The Greening of Carbon Fibre

    Carbon fiber is a material that has, and will continue to revolutionize the products we use every day by making them stronger, lighter and more durable.  Experts estimate that the specialty material is twice as stiff as steel and five times stronger, per unit of weight.   It is made from organic polymers which consist of long strings of molecules held together by carbon atoms.  The ...

  • Chlorine Dioxide gas detection: A comprehensive guide

    Introduction Some years agoago, the bleaching process in the paper industry was changed from using Chlorine (Cl2) as bleaching agent to Chlorine dioxide (ClO2). This was a challenge forThis posed a major challenge to industrial hygienists, as there were no sensors or detectors available that were specific to Chlorine dioxide: There was no sensor technology for gas detectors available that ...

  • NHS managers urged to meet carbon reduction targets

    New plan on sustainable health sets out the steps that NHS managers must follow to cut carbon emissions. NHS Managers in the UK will be handed a number of measures they need to take to meet the government's carbon reduction targets, which involves cuttings its carbon emissions by 10% by 2015. This is part of the new “Vision for Sustainable Health: A Route map” to be set out today. ...

  • Sustainability in a competitive world - A new carbon order emerges

    A growing global presence, a rising political power, a burgeoning consumer market are all terms associated with China. But, 'a voice for sustainability'? This doesn't tally with most people's perceptions of the country, which emits more CO2 than the US and Canada put together - up by over 170% since 2000[i] - and has recently been in the spotlight for not declaring its airline's carbon emissions. ...

  • Municipal Solid Waste – Key to a Low Carbon Economy

    A newly released report has found the waste sector has a key role to play in the development of a low carbon economy and the reduction of greenhouse gases (GHGs). This report comes in advance of the UN Climate Conference in Paris, which will take place in December. The report was ...

  • If carbon pricing is so great, why isn’t it working?

    Political hurdles and low prices have made carbon pricing a low-impact affair. But there’s still hope it can help limit climate change. Earth’s atmosphere has long served as a free dump for carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases generated by humans. That is changing as policy-makers embrace economists’ advice that the best way to cut greenhouse gas emissions is to charge an ...

  • How can we reduce concrete’s hefty carbon footprint?

    Bit by bit, innovators are chipping away at this ubiquitous material’s environmental downsides A roomful of materials scientists, gathered at UCLA for a recent conference on “grand challenges in construction materials,” slowly passed a brick-size white block around the room. They held in their hands, briefly, part of the solution to one of those grand ...

  • How can we reduce concrete’s hefty carbon footprint?

    A roomful of materials scientists, gathered at UCLA for a recent conference on “grand challenges in construction materials,” slowly passed a brick-size white block around the room. They held in their hands, briefly, part of the solution to one of those grand challenges. The white block, rock solid and surprisingly lightweight, was a new alternative to cement, the glue that holds ...

  • Unilateral climate change mitigation, carbon leakage and competitiveness: an application to the European Union

    The setting of binding targets for CO2 emission reductions for 2020 by the European Union (EU) alone has led to concerns that unilateral climate change mitigation may not only hamper the union's competitiveness, but also result in carbon leakage. The paper explores these claims through the deployment of a dynamic, nonlinear, macro-econometric simulation called the Energy-Environment-Economy (E3) ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Accounting Framework for Carbon Capture and Storage Projects

    Foreword Meeting the global challenge to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and avoid dangerous climate impacts requires deploying a portfolio of emission reduction technologies. We must both commit to broad and deep efficiencies in the way our societies’ consume energy and to significant increases in power supplies from low carbon energy sources. At the same time, it ...

  • CO2 emission from cement manufacturing and its driving forces in China

    In China, cement manufacturing has contributed 1788.78 million metric tons of CO2 (carbon equivalent) into atmosphere in the past 35 years (1969-2003). Its driving forces were analysed by a stochastic regression model (STIRPAT), which showed that population was a key driving force and its pressure was higher than the global average level. On the other hand, economic growth had less impact, but a ...

  • A Bayesian model for studying urban air pollution and respiratory symptoms in children

    The association between traffic–related air pollution and long–term respiratory health problems has been extensively studied. In this work we evaluated the effect of traffic–related air pollution on respiratory symptoms in children living in Florence, Italy. Children were selected from different schools part of the Italian Studies on Respiratory Disorders in Children and the Environment 2. ...

  • British scientist claims CCS is the solution of climate change

    Oxford professor argues that climate change can be solved by forcing the fossil fuel industry to implement CCS to bury their waste products. Climate change can be solved by making all producers of carbon-based fuels accountable for the disposal of the carbon dioxide their fuels ultimately give off as a condition of remaining in business. This was the proposal put forward last week by one of ...

  • 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 ...
