  • Undersea storage for US carbon emissions

    Researchers are working hard on methods to mitigate, reduce or compensate for CO2 emissions. One of these, geological carbon sequestration, involves injecting CO2 into deep saline aquifers, or depleted oil and gas reservoirs so that it is not released into the atmosphere where it contributes to global warming. Now US researchers have found a potential new location for undersea CO2 storage, which ...

  • Planetary crisis and to constraint carbon emissions

    Extreme weather patterns, glaciers melt and rising sea levels have been brought on by tonnes of carbon emissions.Such by-products of human activity stem chiefly from the burning of fossil fuels and fuel consumption by vehicle engines. As you are fully aware of the facts that belching emissions from all industries are unhealthy for a sustainable earth. The intergovernmental panel on climate change ...

  • New EU industrial emissions legislation

    Proposal for the revision of industrial emissions legislation in the EU (Questions & Answers) The Commission's proposal focuses on four key problems identified during a two-year review process when data was collected through an extensive programme with ten studies and continuous consultation with stakeholders. Firstly, the Commission proposes to overhaul seven existing pieces of legislation on ...

  • Building a lower carbon construction industry

    Dominic Burbidge, Senior Client Manager Carbon Trust Advisory takes a cradle-to-grave view of the construction sector value chain Carbon reduction is a complex challenge for all organisations, not least those in the construction industry. Taking a cradle-to-grave view of the construction sector value chain means considering all aspects of the design, construction, use and demolition of ...

  • Offset the carbon emissions of your marketing programs

    You can reduce and reuse as much as you can, but the reality is, it’s next to impossible to have a zero carbon footprint in a marketing department. That’s why most eco-minded businesses buy carbon offsets. What are carbon offsets? According to the David Suzuki Foundation, “a carbon offset is an emission reduction credit from another organization’s project that results in less carbon dioxide or ...


  • U.S. headed for massive decline in carbon emissions*

    For years now, many members of Congress have insisted that cutting carbon emissions was difficult, if not impossible. It is not. During the two years since 2007, carbon emissions have dropped 9 percent. While part of this drop is from the recession, part of it is also from efficiency gains and from replacing coal with natural gas, wind, solar, and geothermal energy. The United States has ended a ...

  • Some determinants of carbon dioxide emissions in Bangladesh

    Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, industrial output growth, population growth and Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflows in Bangladesh for 1972–2008 are found non–stationary in terms of both Augmented Dickey–Fuller (ADF) and Kwiatkowski, Phillips, Schmidt and Shin (KPSS) tests with different orders of integration. As a result, the Autoregressive Distributed Lag (ARDL) model and ...

  • Harmonizing Emissions: A case for clean air, carbon reduction and economic growth

    At the Air and Waste Management Associations (A&WMA) meeting on April 2-3, 2008, in Washington DC, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) expressed the need for harmonization between whatever carbon reduction policy is adopted by the United States with existing pollution emission regulations under the Clean Air Act (CAA). The goal of this harmonization is to allow industry to reduce greenhouse ...


  • Car industry supports reducing CO2 emissions

    The European automobile manufacturers support the EU objective of further reducing average car emissions to 120 grammes carbon dioxide (CO2) per kilometre by 2012. Crucial for the future of the industry, however, is how this target is achieved. Controlling climate change is a complex and global challenge and needs concerted efforts embracing all areas of society. Placing the burden mainly on the ...

  • Carbon dioxide emissions, impact on Malaysia's manufacturing productivity growth

    The methods used to measure productivity growth generally ignore the pollutants that are produced by the industrial processes. For example, pollutant emissions generated as undesirable output, apart from the main output of Malaysia's manufacturing sector, are excluded from the productivity accounting framework. This study aims at an extended productivity measure that takes pollutants into account ...

  • Fossil Fuel Use Pushes Carbon Dioxide Emissions into Dangerous Territory

    Increasing global emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), a heat-trapping gas, are pushing the world into dangerous territory, closing the window of time to avert the worst consequences of higher temperatures, such as melting ice and rising seas. Since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, carbon emissions from burning fossil fuels have grown exponentially. Despite wide agreement by governments on ...
