  • Endowments, preferences, technologies and abatement: growth-environment microfoundations

    Will economic growth inevitably degrade the environment, throughout development? We present a household-level framework emphasising the trade-off between consumption that causes pollution and pollution-reducing abatement. Our model provides a simple explanation for upward-turning, non-monotonic paths of environmental quality during economic growth. Its innovation yields sufficient conditions that ...

  • Abatement efficiency of municipal wastewater treatment plants using different technologies (Orbetello Lagoon, Italy)

    Two small-scale municipal wastewater treatment plants (Neghelli and Terrarossa) discharging effluents into a lagoon of great environmental interest and highly stressed by tourism (Orbetello, Italy) were monitored over the year 2001. We evaluated plants' performances developing a general efficiency indicator of removal to select the suitable purification technology (activated sludge, Neghelli vs. ...

  • Application of Membrane Technology for the Recovery and Reuse of Water

    Abstract As water and sewer costs are expected to increase over the next decade, membrane technology will continue to be a viable and economical option in the recovery and reuse of water. This paper describes the mechanism of membrane effected separation (specifically reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration and microfiltration), membranes commercially available, membrane element configurations, and how ...


  • The adoption of cogeneration in the Japanese manufacturing sector: technological, economic and institutional determinants

    Combined heat and power (CHP) has been identified by the Second and Third Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change as a powerful carbon abating technology. In this paper, we review trends and overall changes in power generation technologies insofar as these affect industrial CHP in Japan; we also propose an empirical model for the analysis of CHP adoption based on time ...

  • Evaluating odour control technologies using reliability and sustainability criteria – a case study for water treatment plants

    Technologies for odour control have been widely reviewed and their optimal range of application and performance has been clearly established. Selection criteria, mainly driven by process economics, are usually based on the air flow volume, the inlet concentrations and the required removal efficiency. However, these criteria are shifting with social and environmental issues becoming as important ...

  • Another explanation of pollution–income patterns

    The Andreoni and Levinson (2001) theoretical framework can be used to show that the shape of the environmental Kuznets curve can be explained without considering increasing returns to scale in pollution abatement technology, but simply by making explicit that the marginal disutility of pollution increases with income.Keywords: environmental Kuznets curve, marginal disutility of pollution, ...

  • Climate Strategy with Co2 Capture from the Air

    Abstract It is physically possible to capture CO2 directly from the air and immobilize it in geological structures. Air capture differs from conventional mitigation in three key aspects. First, it removes emissions from any part of the economy with equal ease or difficulty, so its cost provides an absolute cap on the cost of mitigation. Second, it permits reduction in concentrations faster ...

  • Using the Market for Cost-Effective Environmental Policy

    Over the decades, Europe has come a long way in improving environmental quality. Andreas Troge (1), commenting on the current lack of action to curb fine particle emissions from diesel vehicles, said ' …. if we had not installed catalytic converters back then (the 1980s), we would have to reduce our driving by 90  % today to get the same air quality'. This is impressive, and points at ...

  • Arsenic contamination in water: a conceptual framework of policy options with particular reference to Bengal delta basin

    Arsenic contamination in water supplies continues to increase in many countries, especially in developing nations, thereby creating both environmental and health hazard. Its sources and effects are multiple and diffused in nature and it requires detailed assessment and policy. This paper discusses the global extent of the problem, its sources and effects and explores different policy options. ...

  • Are We Throwing Dollars Down The Drain?

    ABSTRACT The implementation of the US EPA’s Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) in the Upper Big Walnut Creek Watershed began in 1999 with the goal of reducing atrazine loads in Hoover Reservoir, a 22-billion-gallon drinking water source for Columbus, Ohio. The program, which provides incentives to farmers for selected agricultural best management practices (BMPs), has produced ...

  • Biotreatment of Odors from the Zimpro Sludge Conditioning Process

    Management of odor emissions generated during thermal sludge conditioning is a well known disadvantage of the “Zimpro” process. Traditional methods of using chemical oxidation and high temperature destruction result in the formation of secondary products, such as chlorine gas, organic halocarbons or nitrogen oxides. In this study, biotrickling filter technology was evaluated at the Villa Hills ...

  • Algal biofuels from wastewater treatment high rate algal ponds

    This paper examines the potential of algae biofuel production in conjunction with wastewater treatment. Current technology for algal wastewater treatment uses facultative ponds, however, these ponds have low productivity (∼10 tonnes/ha.y), are not amenable to cultivating single algal species, require chemical flocculation or other expensive processes for algal harvest, and do not provide ...

  • Bio-SNG featured in energy world in February 2011

    The use of bio-fuels for heating and lighting pre-dates the use of fossil fuels by thousands of years. However, unlike with fossil fuels, a systematic knowledge of the challenges posed by solid bio-fuels is not as widely understood, a fact attributable to the exponential acceleration of fossil fuel usage as global demand increased during the industrial revolution. In the wake of this, producers ...
