  • Calculating carbon emissions

    Refrigerant Gas & Fugitive Emissions Compliance Includes CO2 Calculations If you manage a facility using a refrigeration and air-conditioning (RAC) system or heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC-R) system, it’s time to comply with federal and state environmental laws regarding carbon emissions. To help reduce greenhouse gases, the law requires calculating carbon emissions. This ...

  • Getting the carbon out of emissions

    Original story at MIT News Many researchers around the world are seeking ways to “scrub” carbon dioxide (CO2) from the emissions of fossil-fuel power plants as a way of curbing the gas that is considered most responsible for global climate change. But most ...

  • Regulating Carbon Emissions in Canada

    The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) has issued a report analyzing three policy proposals currently in play to mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Canada, and recommends alternatives to what is being contemplated by governments and the oil and gas industry. Notes the Institute, the provinces, Canada and the oil and gas industry are under pressure to ramp up ...

  • Putting a price on carbon emissions

    A new analysis by Carnegie Mellon University researchers provides the clearest picture yet of the possible short-term effects of placing a price for carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The research suggests that even a modest price would almost immediately result in up to 10 percent reductions in emission levels by prompting changes in both power company investments and consumer behavior. ...

  • New insights into carbon emissions in China

    Original story at MIT News New research takes a look at whether policies can curtail the growth of harmful greenhouse gases. Researchers from MIT and Tsinghua University in Beijing are collaborating to bring new insights into how China — now the world’s largest emitter of carbon ...

  • Carbon emissions ‘outsourced’ to developing countries

    A new study by scientists at the Carnegie Institution for Science finds that over a third of carbon dioxide emissions associated with consumption of goods and services in many developed countries are actually emitted outside their borders. Some countries, such as Switzerland, 'outsource' over half of their carbon dioxide emissions, primarily to developing countries. The study finds that, per ...

  • China moves to lower carbon emissions

    The Asian Development Bank (ADB) will help the People's Republic of  China set up a pilot provincial emissions trading system that  could pave the way for a national scheme and lower greenhouse gas  emissions in the country. ADB is providing a $750,000 equivalent grant to lay the groundwork for a cap-and-trade based emission trading system (ETS) in Tianjin municipal area which ...

  • Helping Industry Reduce Carbon Emissions.

    Climate change and the need to decrease greenhouse gases has become an important global, political and social issue. Many governments are developing new legislation regarding carbon trading and carbon permits. Regulation alone will not solve the issue of greenhouse gas emissions. An effective response to the climate change challenge requires action by everyone - governments, businesses and the ...

  • Office-related carbon emissions surge

    The office is becoming a major driver of climate change. Despite ongoing efforts to improve energy efficiency in the workplace, the world's growing reliance on the Internet is leading to a rapid increase in greenhouse gas emissions. The energy required to power all the world's computers, data storage, and communications networks is expected to double by 2020, according to a new McKinsey & Company ...

  • World Governments Are Limiting Carbon Emissions

    Three-quarters of the world’s annual emissions of greenhouse gases are now limited by national targets, finds a new study published by the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at London School of Economics and Political Science. The 2015 Global Climate Legislation Study, covering 98 countries plus the European Union which are together responsible for 93 per cent ...

  • Committed carbon emissions are rising fast

    Challenging news for those climate campaigners who believe that renewable sources of energy are on the increase: they may be, but so are carbon dioxide emissions. Steven Davis of the University of California, Irvine and Robert Socolow of Princeton University in the US report in the journal Environmental Research Letters that existing power plants will emit 300 billion tons of additional carbon ...

  • Biofuel crops increase carbon emissions

    The conversion of forests and grasslands into fields for the plants offsets the benefit of using the fuel, researchers find. Greenhouse-gas output overall would rise instead of fall. The rush to grow biofuel crops -- widely embraced as part of the solution to global warming -- is actually increasing greenhouse gas emissions rather than reducing them, according to two studies published Thursday in ...

  • Wildfires Spew Carbon Emissions Into the Atmosphere

    BOULDER, Colorado, November 1, 2007 (ENS) - Severe wildfires can contribute as much as vehicles to carbon emissions in some U.S. states, although the amount is highly variable, according to a study based on satellite data. New research published in the journal 'Carbon Balance and Management' quantifies these emissions and suggests fires will complicate emissions monitoring and modelling efforts. ...

  • Indirect carbon emissions and why they matter

    Viewpoint from Hugh Jones, Managing Director of Carbon Trust Advisory Services According to our recent research, a combination of regulation and consumer demand means that 93% of multinational companies are now taking steps to address carbon emissions ...

  • Carbon emissions set to rise in 2017

    Global carbon emissions look likely to increase this year, putting at risk the hope of meeting the world’s agreement to slow global warming. The world’s carbon emissions are expected to show a lurch upwards this year, by around 2%, after three years of staying virtually level. This is a significant setback to efforts to slow the speed at which the Earth is warming, and ...

  • Automated Carbon Emissions Reporting [WEBINAR]

    You may or may not be worried about carbon emissions reporting right now, depending on how strong greenhouse gas emissions regulations are in your country. But one thing is for sure: laws are evolving and becoming more restrictive. And sooner or later energy managers will need to understand how to report carbon emissions properly. Good news – this is exactly what you’ll learn in our ...

  • World carbon dioxide emissions may be falling

    Global carbon dioxide emissions may be dropping ever so slightly this year, spurred by a dramatic plunge in Chinese pollution, according to a surprising new study released Monday. The unexpected dip could either be a temporary blip or true hope that the world is about to turn the corner on carbon pollution as climate talks continue in Paris, said the study’s authors, a scientific team that ...

  • Rainfall`s link to carbon emissions quantified

    Two studies published in Nature this week have demonstrated a direct link between rising greenhouse gas levels and severe rainfall events. Scientists compared rainfall predictions from eight climate models with data from weather stations around the Northern Hemisphere. Gabriele Hegerl, a climate researcher at the University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom, told NatureNews: "We can now say with some ...

  • Border carbon tax could cut emissions

    The US, China and the European Union (EU) should bring in border taxes on carbon emissions contained in imported products not already taxed in their countries of origin, according to a former New Zealand cabinet minister. It would mean that if China, for example, includes rice in its emissions trading scheme, any rice it then imports − and which had not been subject to an emissions tax in ...
