air emissions reduction Books

  • Emissions of Air Pollutants

    Well founded and reliable emission data are necessary to implement strategies to investigate and control air pollution caused by the transport and chemical transformation of air pollutants. This book contains a wealth of new information that enables environmental scientists and authorities dealing with air pollution to design methods for measuring ...

  • Lowering the Cost of Emission Reduction: Joint Implementation in the Framework Convention on Climate Change

    Lowering the Cost of Emission Reduction by Dr Michael Ridley investigates a novel way to reduce the cost of carbon dioxide and sulphur dioxide emission reduction. This book asks whether allowing countries to substitute emission reduction undertaken abroad in lieu of emission reduction at home will reduce the cost of emission reduction and ...

  • Emission Reduction Credit Trading Systems: An Overview of Recent Results and an Assessment of Best Practices Report

    This report assesses actual experience under the two principal forms of inter-firm emissions credit trading programs used today: emission reduction credit (ERC) trading used for new source offsets under the Clean Air Act (CAA), and discrete emissions reduction (DER) credit programs created in six states since 1995. The report makes a qualitative ...

  • Atmospheric Ammonia

    Anthropogenic emissions of ammonia cause a host of environmental impacts, including loss of biodiversity, soil acidification and formation of particulate matter in the atmosphere. Under the auspices of the UNECE Convention on Long Range Transboundary Air Pollution, around 80 international experts met to review the state of scientific knowledge. ...

  • Changes of Atmospheric Chemistry and Effects on Forest Ecosystems

    This volume summarises the result of an interdisciplinary research programme entitled 'Rehabilitation of the Atmosphere of the New States of Germany - Effects on Terrestrial Ecosystems'. Before the unification of Germany, emission loads of SO2 and dust particles were up to 18-fold higher in East than in West Germany. However, emission rates ...

  • Atmospheric Measurements during POPCORN - Characterisation of the Photochemistry over a Rural Area

    Present policy issues concern the reduction of ozone levels by controlling its precursors, NOx and volatile organic compounds (VOC). VOC are emitted from anthropogenic and biogenic sources. Whereas our understanding of VOC emissions from anthropogenic sources has advanced significantly in recent years, there is still a lack of knowledge ...

  • Safeguarding the Ozone Layer and the Global Climate System

    Scientific evidence linking chlorofluorocarbons and other ozone-depleting substances to global ozone depletion led to the initial control of chemicals under the 1987 Montreal Protocol. Since then it has been realized that some actions taken to reduce future depletion of the ozone layer could also influence global warming. When the Kyoto Protocol ...

  • Climate Change: An Integrated Perspective

    Global climate change - rapid, substantial and human induced - may have radical consequences for life on earth. The problem is a complex one, however, demanding a multi-disciplinary approach. A simple cost-benefit analysis cannot capture the essentials, nor can the issue be reduced to an emissions reduction game, as the Kyoto process tries to ...

  • PEM Fuel Cell Electrocatalysts and Catalyst Layers

    Proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells, including H2/O2 (air) and methanol/O2 (air) fuel cells, are promising clean energy converting devices with high efficiency and low to zero emissions. Such power sources can be used in transportation, stationary, portable and micro power applications. The key components of these fuel cells are catalysts ...

  • Dry Scrubbing Technologies for Flue Gas Desulfurization

    Dry sulfurization processes offer the significant advantages of low capital and low operating costs when compared to wet desulfurization. They hold great potential for the economical reduction of sulfur emissions from power utilities that use high-sulfur coal. Dry Scrubbing Technologies for Flue Gas Desulfurization represents a body of ...
