  • ELI Research Brief #1 - New Uses for Old Tools: Protecting Biodiversity and Preventing Pollution Under Existing Laws Report

    Pollution prevention, rather than 'end of the pipe' treatment of effluent, has recently emerged as the preferred strategy in the reduction of industrial emissions. By signing the Biodiversity Treaty in 1993, President Clinton signaled U.S. recognition that protecting the global ecosystem is one of the planet's principal challenges. New Uses for ...

  • Technical Report Series No. 27 : Monitoring Industrial Emissions & Wastes

    The purpose of this manual is to improve the ability of plant managers to optimize the use of raw materials and energy during production. This will lead to the generation of smaller amounts of discharges, emissions and wastes, and is an essential element in the cleaner production approach to environmental management.Monitoring is also necessary to ...

  • Automotive Lubricant Testing and Additive Development

    Twelve peer-reviewed papers focus on both the chemical and tribological aspects of automotive lubricant testing and additive development. In order to help the automotive industry meet lower emission standards, higher fuel economy goals, and longer drain intervals associated with a minimization of any adverse environmental effects, the petroleum ...

  • Effective Control of Fugitive Emissions

    With the EPA continually pressuring the industry to reduce emissions, control of fugitives is increasingly important to your overall emissions ...

  • Ecosystem Responses to Mercury Contamination: Indicators of Change

    As rising levels of mercury in the environment pose an increasing threat of toxicity to humans and wildlife, several laws already call for industries to reduce mercury emissions at the source. Ecosystem Responses to Mercury Contamination: Indicators of Change outlines the infrastructure and methods needed to measure, monitor, and regulate the ...

  • Cement Technology Roadmap 2009 : Carbon emissions reductions up to 2050

    Cement Technology Roadmap: Carbon emissions reductions up to 2050” calls for strong national policies to activate known CO 2 mitigation actions that the cement industry can take now to reduce its emissions. It also issues a call to action to develop commercially-viable carbon capture and storage technologies as a method for further reducing global ...

  • GEMS Environment Library No. 05: The Contamination of Food

    The UNEP/FAO/ WHO Food Contamination Monitoring Programme (GEMS/Food) has been collecting data on food contamination through a network of participating institutes since 1976. In 1988, data from the monitoring programme and other sources covering the years 1971—85 were compiled, analysed and published by GEMS as a joint UNEP/FAO/ WHO document ...

  • New Types of Persistent Halogenated Compounds

    The book gives an overview of properties and research methods of new persistent organic chlorine and bromine compounds which have been observed as potential environmental hazards especially as bioaccumulated xenobiotics, but intensively studied only recently. Sources from product uses, industrial processes, wastes, emissions or metabolic ...

  • Beyond Kyoto - A New Global Climate Certificate System

    This balanced analysis presents news from the ‘climate-protection front’. On the down-side, neither the current 'Kyoto-Protocol' Climate Protection System with (legally binding) commitments by major countries to reduce or limit their greenhouse gas emissions nor various proposals for improving the commitment system are capable of meeting the ...

  • Environmentally Benign Approaches for Pulp Bleaching

    Pulp and paper production has increased globally and will continue to increase in the near future. Approximately 155 millions tons of wood pulp is produced worldwide and about 260 millions is projected for 2010. To cope with the increasing demand, an increase in production and improved environmental performance is needed as the industry is under ...

  • Ecosystem Responses to Mercury Contamination: Indicators of Change

    As rising levels of mercury in the environment pose an increasing threat of toxicity to humans and wildlife, several laws already call for industries to reduce mercury emissions at the source. Ecosystem Responses to Mercury Contamination: Indicators of Change outlines the infrastructure and methods needed to measure, monitor, and regulate the ...

  • Surviving 1000 Centuries

    The circumstances that will shape the long-term future of our planet will be constrained by what is physically possible and what is not. This book provides a quantitative view of our civilization over the next 100,000 years, in comparison to the 40-60,000 years it took for modern humans to emerge from Africa, on the basis of contemporary ...

  • EPA Clamping Down on Ozone Standards

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is preparing to again lower its ozone standard. This action reduces the amount of ozone that is allowed in the air we breathe and thus forces more industrial sources to further reduce their air pollution ...

  • Flexible Mechanisms for an Efficient Climate Policy

    In the Kyoto Protocol to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, industrialized countries agreed on binding absolute targets for greenhouse gas emissions and on the admission of flexible market-economy instruments - such as emissions trading, joint implementation and the clean development mechanism - used for reaching the targets. The ...

  • Biotechnology for Environmental Protection in the Pulp and Paper Industry

    Pulp and paper production has increased globally and will continue to increase in the near future. Approximately 155 million tons of wood pulp is produced worldwide and about 260 million is projected for the year 2010. To be able to cope with increasing demand, an increase in productivity and improved environmental performance is needed as the ...

  • The Conflict Over Environmental Regulation in the United States

    The crisis of the Santa Barbara offshore oil spill in 1969 led to the passage of radically new environmental laws that made the United States an international leader in environmental protection at the time. Since then, environmental regulation has proved detrimental to both industrial and environmental performance. It contributed to a deepening ...

  • Case Study Country Reports in Tanzania

    This report is the national inventory of Tanzania, and presents the findings of the study team. A base line inventory of sources and sinks of greenhouse gases for Tanzania is being presented. While a lot of gaps do exist in the data available and that which is required for a detailed inventory, the work highlights areas where further research is ...

  • 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 ...
