carbon dioxide management Books

  • Carbon Inventory Methods

    Carbon inventory requiring estimation of carbon dioxide emissions and removals in land-use categories for national greenhouse gas inventory and changes in stocks of carbon in projects aimed at climate change mitigation has become increasingly important in global efforts to address climate change. Hence, there is a need for a handbook that provides ...

  • Carbon Reduction: Policies, Strategies and Technologies

    In this time of increasingly pressing concern about global climate change and its potentially irreversible and detrimental impacts on the world's population, it is considered urgent to find effective means for significantly reducing local, regional, national and international greenhouse gas emissions in homes, businesses, industries and ...

  • Management of Lakes and Reservoirs during Global Climate Change

    If present trends continue, most climatologists agree that the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will have doubled by 2050. This increase in CO2 will have a major effect on the global climate and substantially alter the physical, chemical and biological characteristics of lakes throughout the world. A number of recent studies ...

  • Natural Sinks of Co2

    Most of the attention with respect to the increase in atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations centers around three issues: human-generated sources of carbon, mostly from burning fossil fuels; tropical deforestation, which accelerates the production of atmospheric carbon while causting havoc with biodiversity and the economic development of ...

  • Evaluation of GHG Emissions from Septic Systems

    The emission rates of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from individual onsite septic systems used for the management of domestic wastewater were determined in this study. A static flux chamber method was used to determine the emission rates of methane, carbon dioxide, and nitrous oxide gases from eight septic tanks and two soil dispersal systems. A ...

  • Power Plant Air Pollutant Control “Mega” Symposium 2008: CD Proceedings

    The seventh MEGA Symposium, held in Baltimore, MD, August 25-28, 2008, showcased the latest development and operational experience regarding power plant air emissions. This internationally popular event featured state-of-the-art methods for reducing SOx, NOx, particulate, mercury, and toxics emissions from fossil-fueled boilers, as well as carbon ...

  • The Economics of Conservation Programs

    The objective of this book is to review and to analyze the economics of conservation programs in theory and in practice. Demand side management (DSM) is one of the most topical issues in regulating electric utilities, both in the United States and internationally. DSM consists of various measures at the level of demand (households, commerce, ...

  • Global Warming

    Global Warming: Engineering Solutions goes beyond the discussion of what global warming is, and offers complete concrete solutions that can be used to help prevent global warming. Innovative engineering solutions are needed to reduce the effects of global warming. Discussed here are proposed engineering solutions for reducing global warming ...

  • Nanotechnology and the Environment

    Nanomaterials' unique properties offer revolutionary means to optimize a variety of products, including electronics, textiles, paintings and coatings, pharmaceuticals, and personal care products. However, these same properties mean that nanoscale materials can behave differently in the human body and the environment than conventional materials. ...

  • ASTM International Standards for Sustainability in Building: 3rd Edition

    Includes all of the ASTM standards that are referenced by the U.S. Federal Green Construction Guide for Specifiers as of January 2007. This new edition, on CD-ROM only, includes nearly 150 ASTM standards that address the sustainable design, construction, and operation of products used in building. These standards deal with various aspects of ...
