  • Understanding aqueous trace metal characteristics from industrial sources in China

    Trace metals are a group of toxic pollutants that can cause serious damage to ecosystems and humans. To determine the distribution characteristics of aqueous trace metal contamination and identify critical pollution sources, it is necessary to develop a detailed estimation of trace metal emissions. By considering emission-related factors in each industrial sector, we estimate that the ...

  • Towards an ecological culture for the automobile industry: a case study from China

    This paper explores the nature of the ecological culture for the auto industry and the protection of the environment using China as a case study example. From the study, a comparative analysis showed that 75% of state-owned auto enterprises met the Euro III emission standards, while 67% of non-state-owned auto enterprises reached the Euro IV emission standards. It was recommended that this gap ...

  • Use and validation of ADMS-Urban in contrasting urban and industrial locations

    ADMS-Urban has been used in approximately half of the pilot studies of air pollution recently carried out in the UK. The pilot areas varied in spatial extent and in the nature of the sources, the balance between traffic, industrial and domestic sources, and the pollutants which are important. The studies used local emission inventories, and outputs included time-series of predicted concentrations ...

  • Innovative use potential of industrial residues from the steel, paper and pulp industries - a preliminary study

    A more holistic approach to the utilisation of process industry residues is a major theme of current research. The beneficial utilisation of industrial residues, as a logical step towards the goal of sustainability through sustainable development, is crystallised within the concept of industrial symbiosis (IS). The reduction of environmental impacts, including CO2 emissions from industrial ...

  • Determinants of corporate carbon reduction targets

    This paper examines attributes affecting a corporation’s choice of an intensity-only (carbon emissions relative to sales, production, etc.) versus an absolute carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) emissions goal. We investigate alternative hypotheses for this choice including: 1) a high growth hypothesis whereby high growth companies select an intensity goal, to continue to grow without an absolute emission ...

  • Turning down the heat - Innovation Magazine

    Although not the main contributor on a global scale, combustion by industry has been associated with localized high volume and high concentration sources of CO2 emissions. This is especially true for industries characterized by high energy consumption such as the pulp and paper, chemical, gas and petroleum, steel and mineral processing industries. In addition, the high exhaust temperatures of ...

  • Industrial ecology for leverage to let loose less cadmium

    Comprehending how humans let toxic cadmium (Cd) loose in their environment demands analysing zinc (Zn) production, the source of most mined Cd. Analysis of unaccounted Cd with the ImPACT identity as a product of population, affluence, intensity of Zn use, and the used fraction of Cd in Zn ore shows that the used fraction exerted the most leverage. A simulation of emission from Zn mining and ...

  • Eco–efficiency of the world cement industry and innovations: panel causality data analysis

    Since the cement industry emits large amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, the sector is recently under scrutiny. This study empirically investigates the co–integration and the causality relationships between the carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) and the cement industries for the panel comprised of 109 countries using time series data for the period between 1995 and ...

  • Egalite, fraternite, sustainabilite: evaluating the significance of regional affluence and population growth on carbon emissions

    Estimates of the relative contribution of population size and economic growth to global carbon emissions out to 2100 have been made for the industrialised 'North' and populous 'South' of the planet. This was achieved by decomposition of the terms in the 'sustainability' (or IPAT) equation. Historic data, alongside future IPCC emission scenarios, were used to analyse likely changes in CO2 ...
