CO2 AND N2O EMISSIONS


Item #d92mar50

Transport and Climate Change: Cutting Carbon Dioxide Emissions from Cars, C. Holman, 1991, 6. Order from Friends of the Earth, 26-28 Underwood St., London N1 7JQ, UK. Reviewed by C. Agren in Acid News, p. 6, Dec. 1991.

CO2 emissions in the U.K. could be stabilized by 1993-94, and reduced by 30% by 2005. Stabilization would require tax incentives for energy-efficient cars along with public information campaigns; reduction would require reduced traffic growth.


Item #d92mar51

Factors Influencing NOx and CO2 Emissions from Road Traffic in Central and East Europe, M. Fergusson, 1991. Contact Earth Resour. Res., 258 Pentonville Rd., London N1 9JY, UK. Reviewed by C. Agren in Acid News, p. 4, June 1991.

In this study, conducted for WWF International, a model for projecting emissions of air pollutants from road vehicles showed that emissions of CO2 from private cars in Poland may nearly double in the coming decade.


Item #d92mar52

NOx Emissions from Coal Combustion (IEACR/36), L.L. Sloss, 66 pp., Mar. 1991. Order from Info. Officer, IEA Coal Res., Gemini House, 10-18 Putney Hill, London SW15 6AA, UK; or from NTIS: DE91-622525; $104.

Evaluates the extent to which coal combustion is contributing to emissions of nitrogen oxides and their environmental effects, as a basis for establishing appropriate control methods. Includes N2O, a greenhouse gas that also contributes to stratospheric ozone depletion.


Item #d92mar53

CO2 Emissions: Perspectives and Future Options for Canadian Electric Utilities and the Coal Industry. Vol. 1. Study Report, Hatch Assoc. (Toronto, Ont., Can.), 160 pp., 1990. NTIS: MIC-91-06131; $36.50.

Discusses the effects of climate change on the Canadian coal industry and utility operations, assesses policies in other countries, summarizes problems with CO2 emissions, and assesses technological alternatives available for control.
