Enhanced waste-management practices reduce carbon emissions and support lower landfill taxes
Landfill taxes and ‘enhanced waste management’ practices have been introduced to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill and to convert waste into useful products. This study investigated the interplay of these two policy options in Belgium, generating findings that could help Europe move towards a resource-efficient, circular economy. Landfill taxes and ‘enhanced waste management’ practices have been introduced to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill and to convert...
Electric utilities leveraging district energy systems to improve efficiency and reduce carbon ...
Aaron Larson, associate editor (@AaronL_Power, @POWERmagazine), reports in Power magazine on developing business opportunities for electric utilities in district energy, drawing from presentations given at the 107th Annual Conference of the International District Energy Association (IDEA). Cogen in the Sunshine State. Florida Public Utilities Co. (FPU) is partnering with Rayonier Performance Fiber on the Eight Flags CHP project, which conducted steam blows in April 2016. The plant is expected to begin commercial...
The geography of carbon pricing
Study looks at why some states could be impacted more than others if a price is put on carbon. Original story at MIT News How much will your cost of living rise if a price is put on carbon? According to a newstudyinTheEnergy Journal,the answer may depend on where you live — and how policymakers define who’s ultimately responsible for human-made carbon emissions. On first glance, it might seem intuitive to impose a price on carbon where emissions are generated, from manufacturing facilities to power...
Case Study - Carbon Fiber: Oven Emission Control Strategies
OVERVIEW Carbon fiber (fibre) and graphite reinforced polymers are materials that have, and will continue to revolutionize the products we use everyday by making them stronger, lighter and more durable. However, the manufacturing process can have serious environmental ramifications and immediate danger to human health if careful consideration is not given to emission control at the production phase of these materials.ACTIONA carbon fiber company in the Peoples Republic of China was faced with this challenge...
Black carbon emissions of individual cars measured under real conditions
Measurements of individual vehicle emissions are usually made in laboratory tests. In this study, researchers followed cars driving in real conditions to measure emissions of air pollutants, including black carbon and nitrogen oxides. The study shows that diesel cars contribute disproportionately to air pollution, and highlights the value of on-road measurements. Vehicle traffic is a major source of air pollution, linked to respiratory disease and premature death. A recent study found transport emissions in the...
