  • VOC emissions data may be invalid

    Keith Golding, MD of Quantitech Limited, is urging stack testers and the managers of prescribed industrial processes to check the MCERTS certificates of their Flame Ionisation Detectors (FIDs). He says, “The FID fuel gas for which the certificate is valid is now specified so process operators should ensure, for example, that if the certificate specifies a Hydrogen/Helium mix, any compliance ...

  • Carbon trust halves data centre emissions, by design

    The rise in carbon emissions threatened by the projected exponential growth of data centres could be halved in the UK, thanks to a new design service launched by the Carbon Trust today. The new service has already been piloted in the design of multi-billion pound data storage and processing facility, The Lockerbie Data Centre, Scotland, where it is expected to help reduce operating costs by ...

  • Methane: satellite data may improve emissions estimates

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories are significantly underestimating methane emissions from a region in the southwest of the United States, and potentially elsewhere, a new study has found. The authors of the study suggest that satellite data could be used to identify and quantify new sources of methane, such as fracking.  Inventories of estimated GHG emissions, which are used by ...

  • Data Centre CCP Reducing Cost & Carbon Emissions

    Data centres are high energy users, consuming significant amounts of electricity for their operations and in parallel require cooling for optimal performance. The high energy usage also means they potentially have high carbon emissions. These factors make data centres an interesting new frontier for combined heat and power technology. Or as there is a primary requirement for cooling rather than ...

  • 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 ...

  • EU ETS: Commission publishes historical emissions data

    The European Commission has, today, taken an important step in preparing for the full inclusion of aviation in the EU's emissions trading system (EU ETS) from 1 January next year. The European Commission has decided on the historical aviation emissions which will be used to calculate the number of aviation allowances to be available from 2012. ...

  • PEFC to Develop Mechanism for the Transfer of GHG Emission Data

    The use of the PEFC framework to transfer Green House Gas (GHG) emission related data along the supply chain has been the subject of increasing interest among the bioenergy sector and other industry sectors processing forest-based materials in recent years. Key to this rising interest is the growing demand from governmental and private customers, particularly in Europe, that biomass used for ...

  • EPA Updates Greenhouse Gas Emissions Data from Large Facilities

    Today, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) posted the second year of greenhouse gas (GHGs) emissions data on its website, which provides public access to emissions data by sector, by greenhouse gas, and by geographic region such as county or state. Greenhouse gases are the primary driver of climate change, which can lead to hotter, longer heat waves that threaten the health of the sick, ...

  • A new, one-stop shop for greenhouse gas emissions data

    Wading through the vast sea of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions data can be a real challenge. To help simplify the process and make such data more accessible, today the World Resources Institute is launching the Climate Analysis Indicators Tool, or CAIT 2.0. The free, online portal provides data on GHG emissions from 186 countries and all 50 ...
