Emissions Analyzers Books

  • Twenty-First Century Macroeconomics

    The authors and editors of this volume challenge traditional assumptions about economic growth, and develop the elements of a reoriented macroeconomics that takes account both of environmental impacts and of social equity. Policies including carbon trading, revenue recycling, and reorientation of private and social investment are analyzed, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Plasma Spectroscopy

    Papers describe proven methods for enclosing plasma spectroscopic sources so that hazardous materials can be analyzed safely by optical emission spectroscopy. Most papers focus on radioactive materials, but the techniques are applicable to other toxic and hazardous ...

  • 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 ...

  • Environmental Economics and the International Economy

    Thirteen papers addressing current issues in international environmental economics. They analyze the relationship between trade liberalization and environmental policy; the impact of trade liberalization on environmental quality; investigate problems of commitment faced by regulating authorities; provide new insights into the Porter hypothesis; ...

  • Voluntary Approaches in Environmental Policy

    In recent years, voluntary approaches to emission reductions have increasingly been adopted by major companies all over the world and have increasingly been supported by regulatory bodies and public administrations. Despite this world-wide effort to achieve a better environmental performance through voluntary approaches, economic analysis has ...

  • Transport, Trade and Economic Growth - Coupled or Decoupled?

    Over the past decade, the transport industry has become an increasingly popular scapegoat for polluting the environment with emissions and noise. Therefore, additional transport infrastructure investments, especially in road transport, are becoming more and more contentious. Conversely, the advocates of free trade stress the importance of ...

  • Emissions Trading for Climate Policy - US and European Perspectives

    The 1997 Kyoto Conference introduced emissions trading as a new policy instrument for climate protection.

The authors ...

  • Acid in the Environment

    This book is the result of a conference held biannually at the Goodwin-Niering Center for Conservation Biology and Environmental Studies at Connecticut College. It uses an interdisciplinary approach to focus on important ecological impacts of acid deposition, the transboundary nature of the pollutants that cause acid rain, and domestic and ...

  • Tropospheric Modelling and Emission Estimation

    The end result of policy-related experimental and theoretical scientific work on the abatement of atmospheric emissions is a hierarchy of computer models that can be used to analyse and predict the behaviour of pollutants on urban, local regional and global scales. Such models are required to simulate an extremely complex natural situation in ...

  • Efficiency and Equity of Climate Change Policy

    Efficiency and Equity of Climate Change Policy is a comprehensive assessment of the economic effects of climate change policy, addressing the issues with a quantitative modelling approach. The book thus goes beyond the usual statements on the efficiency of economic instruments to identify the way gains and losses are distributed; who gains ...

  • Environmental Crises

    The book studies the art and science of analyzing, assessing and anticipating environmental change. Among the issues considered are the observational evidence, statistical analysis and dynamic modeling as well as visioning of not-implausible changes in the environment, the changing public perception of the environment, functions of the environment ...

  • Innovation for Sustainable Electricity Systems

    Innovation is key to achieving a sustainable electricity system. New technologies and organizational changes can bring about more sustainable, climate-friendly electricity structures. Yet the dynamics of innovation are complex, and difficult to shape. This book, written by experts in the field, sets out to explore the dynamics, the drivers and the ...
