    Activated Carbon: Solutions for Improving Water Quality

    Activated carbon is simple to operate as an adsorption medium for water, serves as a proactive barrier for contamination, and does not produce by-products from its use. Used in treatment worldwide, activated carbon produces very high-quality water. Its implementation helps utilities gain regulatory compliance and position themselves to meet future ...

  • Investing in a Low-Carbon Energy Future in the Developing World

    In Investing in a Low-Carbon Energy Future in the Developing World the WBCSD calls for facilitated investment to secure a low-carbon energy future for the developing world. It notes that a number of new, cleaner technologies already exist or are close to ...

  • Carbon Capture

    Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is the only method available for reducing CO2 emissions while allowing continued use of fossil fuels, both for power generation and potentially in broader contexts. Carbon capture technologies are already playing a role in reducing emissions from large sources such as power stations. Carbon capture could ...

  • Carbon in the Geobiosphere

    Carbon and carbon dioxide always played an important role in the geobiosphere that is part of the Earth’s outer shell and surface environment. The book’s eleven chapters cover the fundamentals of the biogeochemical behavior of carbon near the Earth’s surface, in the atmosphere, minerals, waters, air-sea exchange, and inorganic and biological ...

  • Future Electricity Technologies and Systems

    Where will our electricity come from in the future, and how will we use it? The UK is aiming for a 60% reduction of 1990 carbon dioxide emission levels by 2050, yet the electricity industry and patterns of electricity use must change radically if this is to be achieved. This authoritative overview analyses a range of possible scenarios for the ...

  • Carbon and Its Domestication

    Carbon is chemically versatile and is thus the body and soul of biological, geological, ecological and economic systems. Its appropriation by humans through diversion of its biogeochemical cycle has been a mainstay of development. This domestication is characterized by a number of thresholds: control of fire, development of agriculture, expansion ...

  • Carbon Sinks and Climate Change

    Reforestation and avoiding deforestation are methods of harnessing nature to tackle global warming – the greatest challenge facing humankind. In this book, Colin Hunt deals comprehensively with the present and future role of forests in climate change policy and practice. The author provides signposts for the way ahead in climate change policy and ...

  • Carbon Sequestration in Forest Ecosystems

    Carbon Sequestration in Forest Ecosystems is a comprehensive book describing the basic processes of carbon dynamics in forest ecosystems, their contribution to carbon sequestration and implications for mitigating abrupt climate change. This book provides the information on processes, factors and causes influencing carbon sequestration in forest ...

  • The Ocean Carbon Cycle and Climate

    The great questions that challenge our understanding of the global carbon cycle are: What are the basic oceanic mechanisms that control the oceanic carbon reservoirs and the partitioning of carbon between the ocean and the atmosphere? How do these mechanisms depend on the state of the climate system and how does the carbon cycle feed back to the ...

  • Powering a Sustainable Future: Policies and measures to make it happen

    The report, Powering a Sustainable Future: Policies and measures to make it happen (and its technology solution booklet Powering Sustainable Solutions: Policies and measures), highlights that many low-carbon solutions exist today, but warns that their development and deployment at a sufficient scale to reduce the carbon intensity of electricity ...

  • Carbon and Nutrient Fluxes in Continental Margins

    The book provides best estimates of carbon and nutrient fluxes in seven types of continental margins. In each type, these fluxes are reported in detail individually for 3-7 representative geographic regions, each of which is characterized by concise descriptions of the physical and biogeochemical settings. Drawn from the regional synthesis, a ...

  • Advances in the Geological Storage of Carbon Dioxide

    As is now generally accepted mankind’s burning of fossil fuels has resulted in the mass transfer of greenhouse gases, like CO2, to the atmosphere and a measurable change in the global climate. While the reduced use of fossil fuels must be our ultimate goal in order to reverse this trend, short to medium term solutions are needed which can make an ...

  • Towards a Low Carbon Economy - A business contribution to the international

    This publication aims to share business experience in technology development and deployment, finance and carbon markets, cooperative sectoral approaches and adaptation and proposes policy recommendations for a future ...

  • ELEMENTAL ANALYSIS of FUELS and LUBRICANTS: Recent Advances and Future Prospects

    Twenty-three peer-reviewed papers examine the latest information on the elemental analysis of fuels and lubricants. Six sections cover:Overview—discusses total quality management practices advocated for obtaining a “perfect” analysis, including proper staff training, sampling, calibration and quality control practices.Atomic ...

  • Hydrogen Materials Science and Chemistry of Carbon Nanomaterials

    The energy arteries of the corporate body of mankind are still fed mainly by fossil fuels; but they are in danger of running dry soon unless new energy sources are made available. One of the most important as well as the most ecologically pure power source is hydrogen, that constitutes the heart of hydrogen power engineering and considered as a ...
