  • 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 ...

  • Where does the carbon footprint fall? Developing a carbon map of food production

    The concept of local food is appealing to many consumers. But it is difficult to define what actually constitutes local food. Given the globalised nature of agricultural markets, bread baked in a small village bakery in England may be made from grain grown in Canada. Similarly, many of the inputs to a West Country dairy farm selling local ice ...

  • Trends in Product Level Carbon Management

    In October 2009 ENDS Carbon will be publishing a Trends Report on product-level carbon management, In partnership with Ecometrica. Many companies know that the carbon emitted up and down their supply chains is much more significant than  their direct greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Managing these cradle-to-grave supply chain emissions using ...

  • Is Britain Ready For Carbon Capture And Storage?
