  • Carbon dioxide storage 101

    Scientists and engineers will soon be able to receive advanced training and certification in burying and permanently storing underground the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide as part of a recent stimulus award from the Department of Energy. The DOE awarded nearly $1 million to the Seattle-based Environmental Outreach and Stewardship Alliance (EOS) to develop a carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) ...

  • Volvo First Automaker to Go Carbon Dioxide Free

    STOCKHOLM, Sweden, September 24, 2007 (ENS) - The Volvo Trucks' plant in Ghent, Belgium has become the first vehicle manufacturing plant in the world that operates without emitting any carbon dioxide, CO2, the Volvo Group announced Friday. The gas contributes to global warming as emissions from factories, power plants and motor vehicles form an atmospheric blanket, trapping the Sun's ...

  • Rethinking Carbon Dioxide: From a pollutant to an asset

    With global greenhouse gas emissions still on the rise, despite decades of talk about curbing them, maybe the time has come to think differently about the climate crisis. Yes, we need to burn less coal, oil and natural gas, but clearly fossil fuels are going to be around for awhile. So why not try to clean up the mess they make? That's what a handful of prominent scientists are trying to do by ...

  • Climate models may be overestimating the cooling effect of wildfire aerosols

    Original story at MIT News Whether intentionally set to consume agricultural waste or naturally ignited in forests or peatlands, open-burning fires impact the global climate system in two ways which, to some extent, cancel each other out. On one hand, they generate a significant fraction of ...

  • New Product Announcement - G01-CO2 Series Carbon Dioxide Controller

    Tongdy Control Technology introduces the G01-CO2 Series Carbon Dioxide Controller. This unit has an LCD readout indicating CO2, Humidity and Temperature. There is an alarm buzzer and (3) color back-lit display that changes as CO2 goes up. Communication is through RS-485 and a hand-held remote control. This unit is accurate and features a self calibrating NDIR CO2 sensor with a 0-20000 ppm range. ...


  • Burying the climate change problem: greenhouse gas carbon dioxide

    Burying the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide, a byproduct of burning fossil fuels, has been mooted as one geoengineering approach to ameliorating climate change. To be effective, trapping the gas in geological deposits would be the for the very long term, thousands of years. Now, a team in Brazil, writing in the International Journal of Global Warming has reviewed the risk assessments for this ...

  • Europe shifting to a carbon dioxide-based vehicle taxation regime for a low-carbon automotive industry, notes Frost & Sullivan

    As Europe shifts steadily toward a carbon dioxide (CO2)-based vehicle taxation regime and vehicle manufacturers (VMs) hasten to comply with stringent EU CO2 norms (average fleet emissions less than 130g/km by 2015), demand for low-CO2 cars is skyrocketing. As a result, every European VM is racing towards capturing a share of this opportunity. New analysis from Frost & Sullivan ( ...

  • Columbia University Held Carbon Neutral Commencement

    NEW YORK, New York (ENS) - Columbia University offered a carbon neutral commencement to graduates and their families this year. The university will offset the estimated carbon dioxide emissions at its May 16 commencement through purchasing credits towards projects that save the equivalent amount of greenhouse gases from going into the atmosphere. Columbia is buying the credits ...

  • LI-COR Analyzers Monitoring Carbon Dioxide Worldwide as Atmospheric Levels Reach 400 parts per million

    On May 13, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reported a preliminary daily average carbon dioxide (CO2) reading of 400.07 parts per million (ppm) at the Mauna Loa Observatory on the Big Island of Hawaii. On May 9, a reading over 400 ppm was reported at the site for the first time ever. But that reading (400.03 ppm) was later revised to 399.89 ppm. The first CO2 ...

  • CO2Meter.com, Worldwide Provider of Atmospheric Gas Measurement Equipment, Introduces New, Cost-Efficient Carbon Dioxide and Methane Meter for the Biogas Industry

    CO2Meter.com, a worldwide provider of atmospheric gas measurement equipment, has developed a new, low-cost combination carbon dioxide and methane gas level meter for use in the biogas industry.

  • UK first to auction carbon

    The Government has held Europe's first carbon allowance auction in Phase II (2008 - 2012) of the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS). Four million allowances were sold at a total value of GBP 54m excluding VAT, or GBP 13.60 per allowance, Euro/Sterling exchange rate 0.8428. The EU ETS puts a cap on emissions from around 12,000 installations throughout the EU, including the energy and heavy ...


  • APEC goes carbon neutral

    For the first time ever, APEC meetings will offset their impact to the global climate. APEC's Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) Working Group and Ministerial Meetings (24-29 August) will measure the impact of bringing delegates from across the Asia-Pacific to a single location. More importantly, they will offset that impact and support efforts in carbon reduction. The summit's carbon footprint ...

  • The greener side of carbon

    In 1995, when the sugar division of the GMR Group launched its distillery at Sankili, a village in the Srikakulam district of Andhra Pradesh, it had two options: to power its plant from the grid or generate it from biogas, one of its effluents. It chose the latter. Two years later, thanks to M. Prabhakar Rao, incharge of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and Carbon Trading, GMR, the plant ...


  • Flight carbon footprint calculator prelude to aviation carbon market
