  • Options to Reduce Nitrous Oxide Emissions

    This study assesses nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions in the EU and strategies to control them. It considers in detail options for reducing emissions from the agricultural and chemical sectors, and emissions from combustion processes, and assesses their cost-effectiveness and potential reductions, which could be achieved. The study also makes projections of N2O emissions up to 2020 under a ‘business ...

  • Strategy Paper for Reducing Methane Emissions

    The Strategy Paper for reducing methane emissions,which has just been approved by the Commission, describes the contribution man-made methane emissions, both at the global and European level, are making to the greenhouse effect and global warming. Although the focus in the global climate debate has often been on CO2 emissions, the major greenhouse gas, it needs to be underlined that methane is ...

  • Least-Cost Approaches to Reducing Acid Emissions

    ' The costs of meeting sulfur emission targets can be high. It is essential, therefore, that countries adopt policies which (a) minimize the net economic and social costs of reducing emissions to the agreed target levels, and (b) maximize the overlap between measures designed to reduce acidifying emissions and those addressing other forms of air pollution. This note discusses alternative ...
