  • Global Wind Energy Fortunes (and Turbines) Growing Fast, at Least in Short Term

    From Brazil to South Africa, from northern Europe to the American heartland, wind is on the rise. Already among the world's fastest growing energy sources, wind technology is on the cusp of advances that could multiply a turbine's ability to transform currents of air into electricity, and at a time when global leaders are seeking ways to power the planet without greenhouse gases. So wind energy ...

  • Long term data for monitoring climate change

    Nearly 30 years of sampling data demonstrate that rural locations can be used to monitor greenhouse gases (GHGs), even in a densely populated continent such as Europe. The data have been used to explore how vegetation affects GHG emissions. Urban and industrial settings are unsuitable for measuring global trends in levels of GHGs as there are many local sources of emissions which can affect the ...

  • New Technology Helps Monitor Potentially Toxic Incinerator Emissions

    Casella ETi (UK), has installed two 'Amesa ' systems (Absorption Method for Sampling of Dioxins and Furans) at the Isle of Man 'Energy from Waste' (EfW) incinerator' - the first in the UK to have a continous dioxin sample system permanently installed. Until recently technology has not been available to accurately measure dioxin and furan emissions. Rita Greenwood, Environmental Manager at ...

  • Emission sources identified in Huon Study

    Emissions from domestic wood-fired heaters in southern Tasmania's Huon Valley dwarf emissions from forest regeneration burns, according to a new CSIRO study. "Smoke plume events from prescribed burns do impact the air quality and occasionally exceed the 24-hour standard concentration for particulates but wood-fired heater emissions lead to particulate concentrations that are seven ...

  • Wildfires Spew Carbon Emissions Into the Atmosphere

    BOULDER, Colorado, November 1, 2007 (ENS) - Severe wildfires can contribute as much as vehicles to carbon emissions in some U.S. states, although the amount is highly variable, according to a study based on satellite data. New research published in the journal 'Carbon Balance and Management' quantifies these emissions and suggests fires will complicate emissions monitoring and modelling efforts. ...

  • Commission Sets Out Strategy to Certify, Report, Monitor and Curb CO2 Emission from Trucks, Buses and Coaches

    Trucks, buses and coaches would use less fuel and emit lower amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) under a strategy adopted by the European Commission today. Such heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs) are responsible for around a quarter of CO2 emissions from road transport in the EU. Without action, HDV emissions in 2030-2050 are projected to remain close to current, ...

  • A new global map of ammonia emissions

    For the first time, a global map of atmospheric ammonia emissions has been produced using satellite measurements. This opens up new ways to survey air quality and monitor the Earth's atmospheric chemistry from space. Modern agricultural practices, especially intensive farming methods and widespread fertiliser use, are mainly responsible for ammonia emissions, which have more than doubled since ...

  • Gradko Attending the Air Quality and Emissions Show 2013

  • Hired emissions analyser checks gas rig in Burma

    Following the installation of a turbine on a natural gas rig off the coast of Burma, it was necessary for Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery Ltd (SITL) to analyse emissions from the turbine and a hired Testo 350 XL emissions analyser from Ashtead Technology proved ideal for the application. Based in Lincoln, SITL designs, manufactures, installs and provides life time support for gas turbines used ...
