  • Pesticide runoff from greenhouse production

    A research has been undertaken studying pesticide residues in water from greenhouses and the use of soils and filter materials to reduce such losses. The pesticides detected in water samples collected downstream greenhouses include 9 fungicides, 5 herbicides and 4 insecticides. 10 compounds from flower and vegetable productions were frequently found to exceed environmental risk levels, and with a ...

  • Scalewatcher Banishes Limescale In Gardens And Greenhouses

    In hard water areas, automated watering systems, sprinkler irrigation systems and greenhouse-misting systems clog with limescale, plant leaves develop white scale deposits and over-spray causes limescale build-up on greenhouse windows. Scalewatcher North America, manufacturers of the original, patented and award-winning computerized electronic water-conditioner, Scalewatcher®, has a range of ...

  • Motor transport, greenhouse gases and economic instruments

    Motorised transport is the generator of several forms of negative externality including the uncompensated emissions of greenhouse (global warming) gases. This paper looks at some of the underlying economic issues pertaining to policy-making designed to limit the extent of these externalities. It sets out the basic nature of the problem and outlines our knowledge of the link between the physical ...

  • Taxation of greenhouse gases: why Kyoto will not be implemented

    The Kyoto commitment by the OECD countries, involves a 28% reduction of CO2 emissions by 2010 from what they would otherwise have been. Recent analyses by the IEA point to the herculean task that is required. A combination of commandeered early retirement of one-half of all coal power plants and a coal tax that increases fossil fuel prices to far above the level experienced during the worst OPEC ...

  • GreenWare`s Greenhouse Gas Performance Software.

    In December 1997, member countries of the United Nations reached agreement to reduce their total greenhouse gas emissions under the Kyoto Protocol. By 2005, all member countries will have to report on their progress. Such international action reflects the immediate need to tackle the issue of greenhouse gas emissions and their impact on climate change. As the world looks to the new millennium, ...


  • Effect of cattle slurry separation on greenhouse gas and Ammonia emissions during storage

    Storage of cattle slurry leads to emissions of methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), ammonia (NH3), and carbon dioxide (CO2). On dairy farms, winter is the most critical period in terms of slurry storage due to cattle housing and slurry field application prohibition. Slurry treatment by separation results in reduced slurry dry matter content and has considerable potential to reduce gaseous ...

  • The state of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere using global observations through 2006

    The latest analysis of data from the WMO-GAW Global Greenhouse Gas Monitoring Network shows that the globally averaged mixing ratios of carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrous oxide (N2O) have reached new highs in 2006 with CO2 at 381.2 ppm and N2O at 320.1 ppb. Atmospheric growth rates in 2006 of these gases are consistent with recent years. The mixing ratio of methane (CH4 ) remains almost unchanged ...

  • New routes for roads: using recycled greenhouse films to modify bitumens

    Four recycled greenhouse films made of low density polyethylene and EVA copolymer, are mixed with 6070 penetration grade bitumen. The goal is to improve the viscoelastic properties of bitumen used as a binder in road pavement, contributing to an environment improvement by reducing plastic waste. It is observed that a reasonable stability and a satisfactory upgrading face to rutting defect at high ...
