  • CO2 emissions from new vans – revised data

    In 2012, the average new van sold in the European Union emitted 180.2 g of carbon dioxide for every kilometre travelled, which is close to the 175 g CO2/km target to be gradually phased in between next year and 2017. This target will initially apply to 70 % of new light commercial vehicles in 2014, increasing to 100 % of these vehicles from 2017 onwards. As with ...

  • Tall Towers Fitted to Track CO2 Emissions

    BOULDER, Colorado, July 31, 2007 (ENS) - A new sensor in what will be a nationwide network for tracking carbon dioxide is now monitoring the air over Colorado's Front Range. A 1,000 foot tall tower east of Erie is one of 12 such towers that are being fitted with instruments by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NOAA, to capture the regional ebb and flow of atmospheric carbon. ...

  • CO2 emissions from new cars see biggest fall in 2009

    Average CO2 emissions from new cars sold in the EU dropped by 5% last year, the biggest annual fall ever recorded, a report published today by the European Commission shows. The Commission also adopted detailed rules to harmonise the monitoring of CO2 emissions from cars across the EU. Commissioner Hedegaard will report on these developments in this afternoon's meeting of the High-Level Group ...

  • CO2 emissions from new vehicles in Europe continued to decrease in 2014

    Vehicles sold in the European Union in 2014 were, on average, 2.5% more efficient than those sold the previous year, according to a new report from the European Environment Agency (EEA). The report, which updates the preliminary data published earlier this year, tracks progress towards CO2 emission targets for new passenger cars and vans. According to the EEA report ...

  • New E8500 Portable Emissions Analyzer with Upgraded CO2 Measurements

    The NEW E8500 PLUS emissions analyzer is a complete portable tool for EPA compliance level emissions monitoring and testing. This model has been upgraded to measure up to 50% CO2 using an NDIR sensor. The E8500 PLUS is ideal for regulatory & maintenance use in boiler, burner, engine, turbine, furnace, and other combustion ...

  • Car and van makers continue to meet CO2 emission targets ahead of schedule

    A new EEA report, 'Monitoring CO2 emissions from passenger cars and vans in 2013' presents final data for both vehicle types, updating preliminary data published earlier this year. The average passenger ...

  • Ship emissions reporting ‘must be stepping stone to CO2 target’

    Shipping users will for the first time be granted access to transparent data that identifies the most efficient ships and practices, under a law approved by the European Parliament in full today. The public disclosure of fuel efficiency data will enhance competition for the best ships and routes, which in turn will trigger market forces that will result in fuel savings. Sustainable transport ...

  • Envisat makes first observation of CO2 from manmade emissions

    Using data from the SCIAMACHY instrument aboard ESA's Envisat environmental satellite, scientists have for the first time detected regionally elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide – the most important greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming – originating from manmade emissions. More than 30 billion tonnes of extra carbon dioxide (CO2) is released into the atmosphere annually by ...

  • Picarro gas analyzer pinpoints types and origins of CO2 emissions

    Picarro, Inc. has debuted a unique ultra-trace gas analyzer for precisely measuring Isotopic CO2, a marker of the type of CO2 and its origin. The instrument is based on cavity ring down spectroscopy (CRDS) technology exclusively licensed from Stanford University, and further enhanced at Picarro. Picarro's CRDS analyzers deliver parts-per-billion to parts-per-trillion gas sensitivity at high ...

  • U.S. CO2 emissions fall to lowest level since 1994

    Energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in 2012 were the lowest in the United States since 1994, at 5.3 billion metric tons of CO2. With the exception of 2010, emissions have declined every year since 2007 according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). The 2012 estimates of carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel combustion were 3.7 percent lower than in 2011, and nearly ...

  • EC proposes to reduce average CO2 emissions of new cars to 120g/km

    The European Commission proposed legislation on 19 December to reduce the average CO2 emissions of new passenger cars to 120 grams per kilometre by 2012. The proposed legislation is the cornerstone of the EU's strategy to improve the fuel economy of cars, which account for about 12% of the European Union's carbon emissions. The proposal further underlines the EU's leadership and determination to ...

  • DOE selects projects to monitor and evaluate geologic CO2 storage

    The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced the selection of 19 projects to enhance the capability to simulate, track, and evaluate the potential risks of carbon dioxide (CO2) storage in geologic formations. The projects' total value is approximately $35.8 million over four years, with $27.6 million of DOE funding and $8.2 million of non-Federal cost sharing. The work will be managed by ...

  • Mobile monitoring station assesses diesel emissions

    Researchers in Greece are using a Gasmet FTIR multiparameter gas analyzer, deployed in a mobile van (MOBILAB), to undertake exhaust gas analysis for comparison with ambient air quality data. “This enables us to undertake temporal and spatial air quality measurements from within traffic, measuring emissions during different traffic conditions,” says Apostolos Tsakis, from the Aerosol ...

  • Long term data for monitoring climate change

    Nearly 30 years of sampling data demonstrate that rural locations can be used to monitor greenhouse gases (GHGs), even in a densely populated continent such as Europe. The data have been used to explore how vegetation affects GHG emissions. Urban and industrial settings are unsuitable for measuring global trends in levels of GHGs as there are many local sources of emissions which can affect the ...

  • Fossil fuel CO2 emissions up by 29 per cent since 2000, new testing confirms

    The strongest evidence yet that the rise in atmospheric CO2 emissions continues to outstrip the ability of the world’s natural ‘sinks’ to absorb carbon is published this week in the journal Nature Geoscience. An international team of researchers under the umbrella of the Global Carbon Project reports that over the last 50 years the average fraction of global CO2 emissions that remained in the ...
