  • Cement develops an appetite for C02

    Three new studies illuminate the sheer complexity of the aspect of climate science known as the carbon cycle − how carbon dioxide gets into the atmosphere and out again. Sometimes, human agency is at work, but nature takes care of it anyway – as one of the studies reveals in the case of cement, the world’s most widely-used building material. Zhu Liu, postdoctoral scholar at ...

  • Small Engine Rule to Bring Big Emissions Cuts

    EPA continues to mow down harmful emissions from the nonroad sector with a new proposal that sets strict standards for most lawn and garden equipment and small recreational watercraft. 'From the largest locomotives to the smallest lawn mowers, EPA's current and planned clean air regulations will continue environmental progress, keeping the air cleaner than a generation ago,' said EPA Acting ...

  • Concentrating emissions

    Researchers at MIT have shown the benefits of a new approach toward eliminating carbon-dioxide (CO2) emissions at coal-burning power plants. Their system, called pressurized oxy-fuel combustion, provides a way of separating all of the carbon-dioxide emissions produced by the burning of coal, in the form of a concentrated, pressurized liquid stream. This allows for carbon dioxide sequestration: ...

  • Non-road combustion engines: reduced pollutant emission limits

    On 6 April 2016, the Netherlands presidency reached a provisional agreement with European Parliament representatives on a draft regulation setting new requirements to grant EU type-approval aimed at reducing pollutant emissions of engines installed in non-road mobile machinery. The agreement is subject to confirmation by the ...

  • New ORNL catalyst addresses engine efficiency, emissions quandary

    A catalyst being developed by researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory could overcome one of the key obstacles still preventing automobile engines from running more cleanly and efficiently. The mixed oxide catalyst could solve the longstanding problem of inhibition, in which nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons effectively clog the catalyst ...

  • EPA Awards $495,000 to Reduce Diesel Emissions from Marine Engines in Massachusetts

    EPA has awarded $495,000 to fund two marine repower projects in the state of Massachusetts. CLF Ventures, Inc. has received $300,000 to repower the tugboat Navigator, and the Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management (NESCAUM) has been awarded $195,000 to repower two commercial lobster boats. The grants were awarded after a national competition for clean diesel projects, made possible ...

  • New SAE `Engine Emissions Measurement Handbook`. A must-have for environmental researchers involved in engine development and testing

    The subject of engine emissions is expected to be at the forefront of environmental regulations and consumers’ concerns for years to come. As technology develops to comply with new and different requirements in various regions of the world, understanding the fundamental principles of how engine emissions occur, and how they can be properly measured, is vitally important. “Engine ...

  • Cutting emissions is ‘perfect option’

    There is no alternative. To limit global warming and contain climate change, societies have no real option but to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, according to new research. There might be additional useful steps that nations could take, but nothing will be as effective as simply not burning fossil fuels. Daniela Cusack, a geographer at the University of California Los ...

  • 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. ...

  • Cleaning up ships’ emissions

    The cargo vessels that carry 80% of the world’s trade and the cruise ships that take thousands of passengers to pristine tourist attractions use the world’s dirtiest fuel. With 60% of the world’s ports already voluntarily excluding the worst-polluting ships, owners are in a desperate hunt to find ways to clean up their act – and a giant steel sponge could be the answer. ...
