  • Travelling slower reduces fuel consumption and nitrogen oxides emissions of ships

    Ships that reduce their speed use less fuel, which lowers costs for shipping companies. The slow steaming practice also cuts nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions. A study found that ships travelling on four European routes lowered their NOx emissions by 12% during the economic crisis of 2008/2009. Shipping continues to be a major way of transporting goods, however, and as the global economy recovers ...

  • Beijing says its air pollution better in first half of 2015

    Air quality in Beijing, notorious for its smoggy sky, improved during the first six months of 2015, the city government said. The concentration of PM 2.5 - tiny airborne particles that are particularly harmful to human health - dropped by 15.2 percent from a year earlier to an average of 77.7 micrograms per cubic meter during the first half of the year, the government said, citing data from the ...

  • Risks of biodiversity loss posed by nitrogen and phosphorus pollution in European freshwaters

    The risk of eutrophication as a result of nitrogen and phosphorus pollution in Europe’s freshwaters fell by 22% in lakes and by 38% in rivers between 1985 and 2011, new research has shown. The researchers analysed data across 88 European river basins using a new statistical approach which could be used to help identify factors which increase eutrophication risks. Nitrogen and phosphorus can ...

  • Four of nine ‘planetary boundaries’ exceeded

    Civilisation has crossed four of nine ‘planetary boundaries’, increasing the risk of irreversibly driving the Earth in to a less hospitable state, concludes new research. These are: extinction rate, deforestation, atmospheric CO2 and the flow of nitrogen and phosphorus. Planetary boundaries are scientifically based levels of human pressure on critical global processes that could ...

  • Seeing is believing as scientists trace greenhouse effect

    Government scientists in the US say they have directly observed for the first time the greenhouse effect in action, while monitoring the way carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere absorbed increasing amounts of thermal radiation from the surface. Their measurements, taken over a period of 11 years in Alaska and ...

  • New emissions certification test for cars could be improved, study concludes

    A test currently under development for certifying levels of vehicle emissions may not adequately represent real world driving conditions, a new study suggests. The authors measured emissions during the new Worldwide Light-Duty Test Cycle (WLTC) compared with those in existing driving cycles and highlighted areas where the test could be potentially improved. In the EU, tailpipe emissions from new ...

  • Measuring the impacts of the Nitrates Directive on nitrogen emissions

    The EU’s Nitrates Directive has led to significant decreases in nitrogen pollution in Europe, a new study suggests. Modelled scenarios with and without implementation of the Directive showed that it had resulted in a 16% reduction of nitrate leaching by 2008. These improvements could be further increased as implementation becomes stricter, the researchers conclude. More nitrogen is applied ...
