  • Ozone layer recovery may be delayed by greenhouse gas emissions

    The ozone layer in the stratosphere protects life on Earth from harmful radiation, but emissions from human activity have damaged this defence. A new study suggests that ozone recovery could be delayed, or even postponed indefinitely for some regions, by the impact of increasing amounts of greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the atmosphere. Although ozone at ground level is hazardous to health, ozone in ...

  • Higher EU greenhouse gas emissions in 2010 due to economic recovery and cold winter

    Greenhouse gas emissions increased in 2010, as a result of both economic recovery in many countries after the 2009 recession and a colder winter. Nonetheless, emissions growth was somewhat contained by continued strong growth in renewable energy sources. These figures from the greenhouse gas inventory published by the European Environment Agency (EEA) today confirm earlier EEA estimates. ...

  • Economic recovery fuels rise in CO2 emissions

    Although global emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) declined slightly in 2009, the beginnings of economic recovery led to an unprecedented emissions increase of 5.8 percent in 2010. In 2011, global atmospheric levels of CO2 reached a high of 391.3 parts per million (ppm), up from 388.6 ppm in 2010 and 280 ppm in pre-industrial times. CO2 levels are now 45 percent above the 1990 level, the reference ...

  • Global Enhanced Oil Recovery Market (2012 - 2018)

    Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) is a term for the techniques used for boosting oil recovery by injecting chemicals, gas, or steam to force more oil from an aged field. EOR is also called tertiary recovery or improved oil recovery. On an average, 70% to 75 % of the oil remains trapped in reservoirs because it is too difficult to extract, so by using EOR, about 30 to 60 % of the reservoir's original ...
