  • Emission scopes help to categorize greenhouse gas (GHGs) reporting efforts

    Emission scopes are being used to determine the category of chemical and usage area, so that facilities can understand and monitor their greenhouse gas impact. The US Clean Air Act and the Montreal Protocol have established that emissions of harmful substances must be controlled worldwide. When discharged into the air, these chemicals can cause severe damage to the global environment. Three ...

  • 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 ...

  • New EPA ruling deems greenhouse gases (GHGs) harmful to humans

    Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) will be categorized as a pollutant following the US Supreme Court's landmark notice approving the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ruling.

  • The role of driving in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and oil consumption

    Transportation represented 71 percent of oil consumption and 31 percent of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in the United States in 2008. Therefore, federal transportation policy presents an opportunity to reduce both oil consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This report explores whether technology improvements alone can achieve oil consumption and GHG emissions reduction targets ...

  • The twin cities sludge-to-energy plant reduces greenhouse gas emissions

    ABSTRACTThe majority of Utilities and Agencies in the United States (U.S.) that incinerate sludge treat this practice as a disposal method and do not maximize the recovery of energy available in the sludge and hence, do not contribute to the reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.  The Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES) have used incineration at the Metro Wastewater ...
