  • Economic modelling of sulphur regulations in Poland

    This study presents an assessment of the possible consequences of reducing the emission of sulphur dioxide in Poland according to international sulphur agreement. A computable general equilibrium model was used for this purpose. The model, calibrated for 1995, provides results for year 2010 which suggest that future emission reductions may have positive effects on Polish economic indicators. We ...

  • Industrial applications of new sulphur biotechnology

    The emission of sulphur compounds into the environment is undesirable because of their acidifying characteristics. The processing of sulphidic ores, oil refining and sulphuric acid production are major sources of SO2 emissions. Hydrogen sulphide is emitted into the environment as dissolved sulphide in wastewater or as H2S in natural gas, biogas, syngas or refinery gases. Waste streams containing ...

  • Evaluation of rational sulphur dioxide abatement in China

    Sulphur dioxide (SO2) abatement is attracting wide attention, with its generation increasing rapidly in China. In this paper, we calculate the SO2 rational abatement ratio (SRAR) of 30 regions in China from 1990 to 2005, by applying Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) based on the regional own production frontier. Results show that, the more developed area is, the lower SRAR is. The eastern, central ...

  • Transboundary initiatives for controlling sulphur, and possible lessons for CO2

    This paper addresses the concept of joint implementation as it relates to the Oslo Protocol of the Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution. It introduces the complexity of emissions trading arising from the spatial nature of the pollutant, describes a system for establishing sulphur emission 'exchange rates' between host and donor parties, and illustrates these concepts using a ...

  • Evolution of marketable permits: the US experience with sulphur dioxide allowance trading

    The Sulfur Dioxide Allowance Programme, created under Title IV of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, is the first national market-based approach to environmental management employed in the United States and represents a radical departure from both the traditional regulatory approach to environmental policy and from previous emissions trading efforts. This paper reviews the goals of the SO2 ...

  • Estimation of the exchange of sulphur pollution over the Balkan region in 1995?2000

    The Bulgarian dispersion model 'Eulerian Model for Air Pollution' (EMAP) is used to estimate the sulphur pollution over the Balkan region for the period 1995?2000. A subdomain of the European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme (EMEP) grid is chosen containing 12 countries. The computational grid in this domain has a space step of 25 km, twice as fine as the EMEP grid. The former operational DWD ...

  • Can slow steaming lower cost impacts of sulphur directive – shippers’ perspective

    The International Maritime Organization (IMO) (2013, 2014) and the European Parliament (EP) (2005, 2012) have addressed the matter that harmful air emissions should be decreased in shipping transportation. The purpose of this empirical case study is to examine and anticipate in detail if slow steaming in freight shipping can bring any economically positive effects to shippers in the new fuel ...

  • Potential of hybridisation of the thermochemical hybrid-sulphur cycle for the production of hydrogen by using nuclear and solar energy in the same plant

    The search for a sustainable, CO2-free massive hydrogen production route is a strong need, if one takes into account the world-wide increasing energy demand, the deterioration of fossil fuel reserves and in particular the increasing CO2 concentration leading to global warming. Thermo-chemical cycles for water splitting are considered as a promising alternative of emission-free routes of massive ...

  • An approach to zoom modelling of acid deposition on the basis of sulphur compound evaluation for the St. Petersburg region

    One of the problems of atmospheric pollution modelling in industrial regions is a harmonisation of local and regional modelling results. For many European domains, deposition from remote emitters may be as much as half of the total. A modelling activity aimed at solving this problem is presented. A model with variable spatial and temporal resolution is used. It is based on the current model of ...

  • Measurements of Atmospheric Concentrations of Reduced Sulphur Compounds in the All Saints Bay Area in Bahia, Brazil

    Atmospheric concentrations of several reduced sulphur compounds (H2S, COS, CH3SH, CH3SCH3, CS2) originating from both natural and anthropogenic sources were measured at a number of locations in the All Saints Bay area and Reconcavo Baiano, Brazil. The volatile reduced sulphur compounds were collected by pre-concentration using cryo-tubes. Analysis of these compounds was carried out at a later ...

  • Synthetic Media Biofilter Eliminates Hydrogen Sulphide and Other Reduced Sulphur Compound Odours

    Abstract Innovative synthetic biofilter media has revolutionized biofilter technology for removal of hydrogen sulphide (H:S) odours from several wastewater treatment facilities across North America. The major drawback of biofilter technology in the past was use of organic wood-based media, which had several problems including high-pressure drop, frequent media replacement, lack of ...

  • Emissions Trading, the economy and the environment

    John Kinsman reviews the successes of emissions trading and rebuts fears that trading might lead to localised ‘hot spots’ The US Acid Rain Program, established in 1990 to reduce sulphur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) from electric power plants across the ...

  • NOx and SOx Emissions Trading in Ontario

    Erik Haites outlines an unusual emissions trading programme due to begin next year. The government of Ontario recently announced its intention to establish an emissions trading programme for NOx and SOx emissions (oxides of nitrogen and sulphur) from all coal- or oil-fired electric generating plants in the province with a capacity greater than 25 MW beginning on 1 January 2001. This programme is ...

  • Shipping Emissions - The Environmental Case for Sea Water Scrubbing

    The romantic image of a luxury liner cruising blue seas amid blue skies and trailing a plume of smoke is too close to the truth for comfort. The emissions from shipping make an increasingly conspicuous contribution to air quality, health and environmental problems of Europe, and indeed, the world. Yet an effective and safe technology to dramatically reduce these emissions is being discouraged, ...


  • Emissions Trading - Ontario sets out emissions trading plans

    Canadian province of Ontario has issued a discussion paper proposing a hybrid emissions trading scheme covering nitrogen oxides and sulphur dioxide. Elisabeth DeMarco examines the plans for a scheme that could form the basis for a wider emissions trading system. Ontario sets out emissions trading plans In late March, the Ontario Ministry of the Environment (MoE) released a policy option paper, ...


  • Experience curves for power plant emission control technologies

    This paper examines past experience in controlling emissions of sulphur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) from coal-fired electric power plants. In particular, we focus on US and worldwide experience with two major environmental control technologies: flue gas desulphurisation (FGD) systems for SO2 control and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) ...

  • A.E.S. 1977 paper to with plating emission problems

    A.E.S. PAPER The following paper has NOT been altered whatsoever. Some notes a) A.E.S. stands for American Electroplating Society. b) the mention of l¼ million cfm is now incorrect as it is well over 3 million cfm c) The Grandview E.C.E. scrubber is a condensed name for Eliminate, Coalesce, Eliminate …. and this design is called by various names such as LMS …low micron scrubber and LMITS …low ...


  • Clean urban transport can drive emissions cuts

    Here’s a way to save $100 trillion and stop 1,700 million tonnes of carbon dioxide from getting into the atmosphere every year by 2050: cycle, walk or take public transport. A new report by the University of California Davis and the Institute for ...

  • Zero emissions day: What it is and why we need it

    Today is September the 21st – a day that didn’t hold any particular significance until a simple observation occurred in the 1980’s. Ken Wallace, father of a newborn daughter, realized, after witnessing the local neighborhood pizzeria truck, parked, running and driverless, combined with the surrounding traffic that “Stopping all this for a bit would be most excellent for ...
