  • New N2O Wastewater System

    The N2O Wastewater System is the world’s only sensor for direct and real-time measurement of dissolved nitrous oxide N2O) in wastewater. Together with new control and process strategies, it enables reduction of total carbon footprint. Large impact of N2O on carbon footprint N2O is a product of both nitrification and denitrification during the biological treatment of wastewater. ...

  • Record High for Global Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    The disappointing climate conference in Warsaw, Poland—which was intended to lay the groundwork for a global climate agreement in 2015—stands in sharp contrast to the continued growth in emissions of greenhouse gases. Negotiators and activists alike confront not only the fact that carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions reached the highest annual total to date, but also a shifting geographic ...

  • U.S. greenhouse gas emissions and capture, regionally

    A new report, Agriculture’s Role in Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Capture, commissioned by the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America, examines the evidence for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and sequestration in America’s major agroecosystems. The report summarizes current knowledge of carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrous oxide ...

  • Management of rice paddy fields affects greenhouse gas emissions

    How rice paddy fields are managed significantly influences the release of greenhouse gases (GHGs), a recent study concludes. Permanently flooded soils release more methane than soils that are flooded and then dried between production periods, for example. In general, the researchers recommend growing other crops in dried soil between production cycles, as well as limiting nitrogen fertilisers, to ...

  • Record Greenhouse Gas Levels Impact Atmosphere and Oceans

    The amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere reached a new record high in 2013, propelled by a surge in levels of carbon dioxide. This is according to the World Meteorological Organization’s annual Greenhouse Gas Bulletin, which injected even greater urgency into the need for concerted international action ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Concentrations Reach New Record

    The amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere reached a new record high in 2011, according to the World Meteorological Organization. Between 1990 and 2011 there was a 30% increase in radiative forcing – the warming effect on our climate – because of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other heat-trapping long-lived gases. Since the start of the industrial era in 1750, about 375 billion tonnes ...

  • Greenhouse gas concentrations hit yet another record

    The amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere reached yet another new record high in 2014, continuing a relentless rise which is fuelling climate change and will make the planet more dangerous and inhospitable for future generations. The World Meteorological Organization’s Greenhouse Gas Bulletin says that between 1990 and ...

  • Greenhouse Gas Concentrations in Atmosphere Reach New Record

    The amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere reached a new record high in 2012, continuing an upward and accelerating trend which is driving climate change and will shape the future of our planet for hundreds and thousands of years. The World Meteorological Organization’s annual Greenhouse Gas Bulletin shows that between 1990 and 2012 there was a 32% increase in radiative ...

  • USEPA proposes minor changes to greenhouse gas tailoring rule and permitting requirements

    The USEPA proposed on Feb. 24, 2012 (http://www.epa.gov/NSR/actions.html) not to change the greenhouse gas (GHG) permitting thresholds for the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) and Title V Operating Permit programs. The USEPA also proposed steps to streamline the permitting process for facilities already covered by the programs, and not to include ...


  • EPA proposes to keep greenhouse gas permitting requirements focused on largest emitters

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing not to change the greenhouse gas (GHG) permitting thresholds for the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) and Title V Operating Permit programs. Today’s proposal is part of EPA’s common-sense, phased-in approach to GHG permitting under the Clean Air Act. EPA is also proposing steps that would streamline the ...

  • EPA greenhouse gas permitting requirements maintain focus on largest emitters

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today announced that it will not revise greenhouse gas (GHG) permitting thresholds under the Clean Air Act. Today’s final rule is part of EPA’s common-sense, phased-in approach to GHG permitting under the Clean Air Act, announced in 2010 and recently upheld by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. The final rule maintains a ...

  • WMO greenhouse gas bulletin 2006:atmospheric carbon dioxide levels highest on record

    In 2006, globally averaged concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere reached their highest levels ever recorded. The World Meteorological Organization’s (WMO) 2006 Greenhouse Gas Bulletin, published today, says it reached 381.2 parts per million (ppm), up 0.53 per cent from 379.2 ppm in 2005. The information is based on observations from the WMO Global CO2 and CH4 Monitoring ...

  • Uhde wins new contracts for EnviNOx® tail gas treatment units for the abatement of greenhouse gases

    Uhde has been commissioned by the Hungarian fertiliser company Nitrogénmüvek Zrt. to engineer and supply a tail gas treatment unit based on the EnviNOx® technology. The EnviNOx® unit will be installed in a new nitric acid plant in Petfürdö, around 80 kilometres south-west of Budapest, and is scheduled to come on-stream in May 2007. Uhde's EnviNOx® process uses a special catalyst to convert the ...

  • US introduces new mandatory measurement and reporting of greenhouse gases

    Tough new EPA rules mean vehicle and engine manufacturers will be required to measure and report CH4 and N2O emissions from model year 2011. In April 2009 the US EPA proposed a new mandatory greenhouse gas reporting program. Although the sheer volume of CO2 in the atmosphere means that it is by far the biggest contributor to the greenhouse effect, there are other gases that also have a measurable ...

  • UK landfill methane emissions among the highest in Europe

    Methane emissions from UK landfill sites were among the highest of any EU15 country in 2008, a European Environment Agency (EEA) report warns. The European Union greenhouse gas inventory 1990–2008 and inventory report 2010, which sought to assess whether EU countries are on target to meet Kyoto Protocol emissions targets, found that in 2008, UK landfill contributed 20,150 gigagrams (gg) of ...

  • LANXESS cuts its global climate gas emissions by more than 50 percent

    In the last two years, the specialty chemicals group LANXESS has reduced its direct climate gas emissions by more than 50 percent.

  • Nitrous oxide is now top ozone-layer damaging emission

    According to new research, emissions of anthropogenic nitrous oxide (N2O) are now causing more damage to the ozone layer than those of any controlled ozone depleting substance and this is projected to remain the case for the rest of this century. The study suggests that limiting N2O emissions could help both the recovery of the ozone layer and tackle climate change. Many ozone-depleting ...
