El Gobierno aprueba la asignación final gratuita de derechos de emisión de gases de efecto invernadero a instalaciones para el periodo 2013-2020El Gobierno aprueba la asignación final gratuita de derechos de emisión de gases de efecto invernadero a instalaciones para el periodo 2013-2020

Esta decisión se ha tomado después de consultar a la Comisión de Coordinación de Políticas de Cambio Climático y tras un trámite de información pública. Las asignaciones suponen unos 72 millones de toneladas de CO2 en 2013 y descienden gradualmente hasta los 62 millones de toneladas en 2020. El acuerdo afecta a un total de 1.005 instalaciones que pertenecen a sectores industriales emisores de gases […]

Coal Continues to Dominate Global Carbon EmissionsCoal Continues to Dominate Global Carbon Emissions

  Despite explosive growth in renewable energy consumption, continued strong growth in coal consumption has further consolidated coal as the dominate source of carbon dioxide emissions. In its annual analysis of global carbon emissions production published online Tuesday 19 November, the Global Carbon Project (GCP) found that global emissions from fossil fuel combustion and cement production reached a record high of 35 billion tonnes CO2 […]

Preparation and gas permeability of the surface-modified porous Al2O3 ceramic filter for CO2 gas separationPreparation and gas permeability of the surface-modified porous Al2O3 ceramic filter for CO2 gas separation

Authors: Isobe, T. Shimizu, M. Matsushita, S. Nakajima,A. Source: J. Asian Ceram. Soc. , 1 , 65–70 , 2013 Al2O3 filters for CO2 gas separation were prepared by slip casting method. Average pore size and porosity of the obtained Al2O3 filters were about 74 nm and 40%, respectively. To evaluate the pore size effect, the Al2O3 filters having average pore size of 760 nm were also prepared. FE-SEM micrographs […]

7 metodologías para el cálculo de emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero

  Ihobe edita un manual sobre las principales metodologías para el cálculo de las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero. Las metodologías recogidas en el manual publicado por la Sociedad de Gestión Ambiental del Gobierno Vasco Ihobe hacen referencia tanto al cálculo de inventarios de emisiones como a las huellas de carbono de organizaciones, productos o servicios, con las diferencias en cuanto a su alcance, […]

Carbon Dioxide Released from Burning Fuel Today Goes Back Into New Fuels TomorrowCarbon Dioxide Released from Burning Fuel Today Goes Back Into New Fuels Tomorrow

The search for ways to use megatons of carbon dioxide that may be removed from industrial smokestacks during efforts to curb global warming has led to a process for converting that major greenhouse gas back into the fuel that released it in the first place. Research on the project was a topic in New Orleans on April 8 at the 245th National Meeting & Exposition […]

SO2 and CO2 emission reduction processSO2 and CO2 emission reduction process

Tech Offer ID : O-872 The Material Science Institute of Seville (CSIC), along with the University of Seville and the University of Cadiz, have patented a process which allows the mineral capturing of the greenhouse gasses and acid rain producing CO2 and SO2, respectively. The process is based on the reuse of industrial waste rich in calcium produced by multiple industrial processes, and it is perfomed […]

Scientific discovery offers ‘green’ solution in fight against greenhouse gasesScientific discovery offers ‘green’ solution in fight against greenhouse gases

A low-cost new material that could lead to innovative technologies to tackle global warming has been discovered by scientists at The University of Nottingham. The porous material, named NOTT-300, has the potential to reduce fossil fuel emissions through the cheaper and more efficient capture of polluting gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and sulphur dioxide (SO2). The research, published in the scientific journal Nature Chemistry, demonstrates […]

TECNALIA provee un servicio especializado a la industria de la construcción para ayudar a detectar y cuantificar con precisión las emisiones de C02TECNALIA provee un servicio especializado a la industria de la construcción para ayudar a detectar y cuantificar con precisión las emisiones de C02.

El Protocolo de Kyoto sobre el cambio climático, obligatorio desde el año 1997, se convierte en la primera herramienta de ámbito internacional para la lucha contra el cambio climático, en la que se establecen objetivos cuantitativos concretos de reducción de las emisiones. Entre las actividades a las que se exige que reduzcan sus emisiones, se encuentran la generación de electricidad, el refino de hidrocarburos, las […]

Preparation and characterization of lotus ceramics with different pore sizes and their implication for the generation of microbubbles for CO2 sequestration applicationsPreparation and characterization of lotus ceramics with different pore sizes and their implication for the generation of microbubbles for CO2 sequestration applications

Autores: Catalin Popa, Ken-ichi Katsumata, Toshihiro Isobe, Nobuhiro Matsushita, Akira Nakajima, Taisuke Kurata, Kiyoshi Okada Fuente: J. Eur. Ceram. Soc.DOI: 10.1016/j.ceramint.2012.07.087 , August 2012 Four kinds of porous mullite ceramics, named lotus ceramics because of the similarity of their microstructure with lotus roots, were prepared by an extrusion method using rayon fibers of four different diameters (8.1, 9.6, 16.8 and 37.6 µm) as the pore formers. The physicochemical […]

Waste materials for carbon capture and storage by mineralisation (CCSM) ? A UK perspectiveWaste materials for carbon capture and storage by mineralisation (CCSM) ? A UK perspective

Authors: Sanna, A.|Dri, M.|Hall, M.R.|Maroto-Valer, M. Source: Applied Energy , 99, 545?554 , November 2012 This work reviews the advantages and disadvantages of using mineral wastes for CCS and their potential in CO2 abatement, highlighting the potential applications and scenarios. This study indicates that a variety of inorganic waste materials such as pulverised fuel ash, municipal solid waste ash, cement kiln dust, biomass and paper sludge ash and […]
