  • New project against greenhouse gases

    France has at last officially launched the system of domestic projects aimed at providing financial incentives to economic sectors outside the European CO2 quota trading system to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. The public finance organisation, “Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations”, which last week announced it had compensated its annual emissions, will be at the heart of the initiative. It ...


  • Biological control of plant bugs in greenhouses

    How can we biologically control the European tarnished plant bug and other plant bugs in the greenhouse? Wageningen UR, Entocare biocontrol CV and breeders have been working on a solution for many years. While a trap with pheromone attractant appears to be a good way, initial results show that the trap requires further optimisation to not only attract bugs but capture them as well. The right ...

  • Asia Pacific Bucks World Trend in Forest Cover

    While global forest cover is moving on a downward spiral with a loss of nearly 130 million hectares of forest worldwide, Asia Pacific's forest cover has grown by some 24 million hectares over 20 years. Seven million of Asia's forests have been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, according a new UNEP report released today. "This region accounts for nearly half of global trend emissions," ...

  • EPA: greenhouse gases threaten public health and the environment

    After a thorough examination of the scientific evidence and careful consideration of public comments, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced today that greenhouse gases (GHGs) threaten the public health and welfare of the American people. EPA also finds that GHG emissions from on-road vehicles contribute to that threat. GHGs are the primary driver of climate change, which can ...

  • Can biochar help suppress greenhouse gases?

    Nitrous oxide is a potent greenhouse gas and a precursor to compounds that contribute to the destruction of the ozone. Intensively managed, grazed pastures are responsible for an increase in nitrous oxide emissions from grazing animals’ excrement. Biochar is potentially a mitigation option for reducing the world’s elevated carbon dioxide emissions, since the embodied carbon can be ...

  • EPA - greenhouse gases do threaten public health

  • Big potential of cutting greenhouse gases from waste

    There is a big potential to cut greenhouse gases (GHGs) from municipal solid waste management, according to a new report from the European Environment Agency (EEA). The report, 'Waste opportunities – Past and future climate benefits from better municipal waste management in Europe', covers the EU-27 (excluding Cyprus), Norway and Switzerland. It estimates that these countries could make GHG ...

  • High-tech greenhouse research facility for Australian horticulture

    Supported by Wageningen UR Greenhouse horticulture, a new high-tech greenhouse research facility will be built on the campus of University of Western Sydney, 50 km West of Sydney, Australia. Greenhouse horticultural industry is fast developing in Australia. Several new large vegetable production sites have started their operation during the last years, some of them with Dutch technology. ...

  • Potent greenhouse gases – fluorinated gases in the European Union

    The European Environment Agency (EEA) has published new aggregated information on the production and trade of fluorinated gases – or F-gases – in the EU. Although emitted in relatively small quantities, the emissions of these gases are increasing, and many are several thousand times more powerful greenhouse gases than carbon dioxide (CO2). In 2011, F-gases were used mostly for ...

  • Recession and renewables cut greenhouse emissions in 2009

    Greenhouse gas emissions decreased very sharply in 2009, by 7.1 % in the EU-27 and 6.9 % in the EU-15. These most recent results, compiled by the European Environment Agency (EEA), confirm estimates made by the EEA last year. This decrease was largely the result of the economic recession of 2009, but also sustained strong growth in renewable energy. Professor Jacqueline McGlade, ...

  • Africa could reduce greenhouse gases, says UN

    Although Africa contributes significantly to global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from sources other than fossil fuels, it could be absorbing more carbon from the atmosphere than it puts back in, according to CarboAfrica, an international research project of 15 institutions from Africa and Europe that includes FAO. Studying wild fires in South Africa's Kruger Park, carbon dioxide flows in the ...

  • Industrialized Countries` Greenhouse Gases Hit Record High

    The total greenhouse gas emissions of 40 industrialized nations rose to an all-time high in 2005, continuing the upward trend of the year before, according to data submitted to the secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The increases came from the continued economic growth in highly industrialized countries as well as the revived economic growth in former ...

  • COMPANY BEGINS R.A.W. CAMPAIGN WITH GOAL TO REDUCE WASTE AND GREENHOUSE GASES

    Every day across North America, thousands of cars pull into a dealership or shop for service, and in order to protect the interior of a customer's vehicle, those shops use disposable seat and floor covers. Approximately 65,000 tonnes of disposable seat and floor covers from the auto service industry are dumped into North American landfills each year. Added to that, over 130,000 tonnes of ...
