  • Complying with emissions regulations: calculating the acid plume from ships’ desulphurisation equipment

    Marine diesel contains sulphur compounds, which generate sulphur oxide (SOx) pollution and acid rain. Ships can use mitigating technologies to reduce their SOx emissions, but these can also have a negative environmental impact. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) introduced stringent legislation to control these, aspects of which are incorporated into EU policy. This study examined the ...

  • Rising acidity in seawater damages marine ecosystems

    Rising emissions of carbon dioxide from human activities are not only contributing to the warming effect of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, they are also acidifying the world's oceans. New research examines the major ecological tipping points that occur when the concentration of dissolved carbon dioxide in seawater increases. The oceans absorb CO2 from the atmosphere where it dissolves and ...

  • Marine economy sinks as ocean acidity rises

    The waters off the US state of Alaska are some of the best fishing grounds anywhere, teeming with salmon and with shellfish such as crab. But a new study, funded by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), says growing acidification of Alaska’s waters, particularly those off the southern coast, threatens the state’s whole economy − largely dependent on the ...

  • Emissions Cap Fuels Committee

    The Obama administration has proposed tougher air pollution rules for 31 states from Massachusetts to Texas to curb smog and acid rain, but this may lead energy companies to shut some power plants.  The rules are set to take effect in 2012. American Electric Power Co, who are among the few that may be affected by the regulations, announced last week that they will form part of the NGU US ...

  • A bleak future for Mediterranean coral as oceans become more acidic

    Mediterranean red coral (Corallium rubrum), already endangered due to over-harvesting, is likely to suffer still further under increasing ocean acidification as a result of rising CO2 emissions. Research has shown that under more acidic conditions the structural development of red coral skeletons is abnormal and growth rate is reduced. The world’s oceans are absorbing greater quantities of ...

  • UK landfill methane emissions among the highest in Europe

    Methane emissions from UK landfill sites were among the highest of any EU15 country in 2008, a European Environment Agency (EEA) report warns. The European Union greenhouse gas inventory 1990–2008 and inventory report 2010, which sought to assess whether EU countries are on target to meet Kyoto Protocol emissions targets, found that in 2008, UK landfill contributed 20,150 gigagrams (gg) of ...

  • Ship-generated emissions play havoc on environment

    New research shows that emissions generated by ships increase acid rain on shore and may be responsible for over 25% of the ground-level ozone in a number of coastal areas. The research results were recently published in the journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics. Past studies have shown that 70% of shipping occurs within 400 kilometres of land. Taking this research further, Professor Stig B. ...
