  • Greenhouse gas protocol launches in India

    The use of standards to account for corporate greenhouse gases is increasingly common in developed countries – but it is emerging in developing countries as well. In India, companies’ focus on value chain inventories and life cycle thinking is in nascent stages. That’s why the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, a collaboration of the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Chris Huhne reaction to greenhouse gas emissions figures

    Responding to the publication of final greenhouse gas emissions statistics for 2009, Energy and Climate Change Secretary Chris Huhne said: “Yes, emissions were down in 2009 but so was the economy so this is no time for back slapping. A low carbon approach has to be a vital part of kick starting and future proofing our economy, getting us off the oil hook and onto long term green growth. ...

  • Scientists question EPA estimates of greenhouse gas emissions

    The approach the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) uses to estimate greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural anaerobic lagoons that treat manure contains errors and may underestimate methane emissions by up to 65%, according to scientists from the University of Missouri. Anaerobic lagoons treat manure on some animal feeding operations prior to application to crops as a fertilizer. ...

  • WRI Joins Greenhouse Gas Management Institute

    The World Resources Institute (WRI) and the Greenhouse Gas Management Institute are joining forces to train professionals on the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, the most widely used international accounting tool for government and business leaders to understand, quantify, and manage greenhouse gas emissions. “Our mission is to train and develop a community of experts with the highest standards of ...

  • EU reports lowest greenhouse gas emissions on record

    The European Union's greenhouse gas emissions continued to fall in 2012, as a 1.3 % decrease cut emissions to 19.2 % below 1990 levels, according to official data from the European Environment Agency (EEA). This puts the EU within reach of its 20 % reduction target, with eight years to go until the 2020 deadline. The findings come from ...

  • Landfills turn trash into power and greenhouse gas reductions

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is recognizing eight landfill methane capture projects for their innovation in generating renewable energy and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The winners include one of the largest landfill gas (LFG) to liquefied natural gas facilities in the world, located in Livermore, Calif. “We are proud to recognize Landfill Methane Outreach Program ...

  • Statistical release: 2011 UK greenhouse gas emissions

    DECC today publishes provisional 2011 estimates of UK greenhouse gas emissions, together with final estimates of 2010 UK greenhouse gas emissions by fuel type and end-user. 2011 headline results In 2011, UK emissions of the basket of six greenhouse gases covered by the Kyoto Protocol were provisionally estimated to be 549.3 million tonnes carbon dioxide equivalent. This was 7.0 per cent ...

  • EPA shifts greenhouse gas permitting to Texas
