  • With a view to launch a low carbon society in Taiwan by 2050, the Executive Yuan ratified the Sustainable Energy Policy Guide in 2008. Taiwan is now committed to reduce CO2 emission back to its 2005 level by 2020. Then, back to the 2000 level by 2025, and finally achieving 50% of 2000 level by 2050. In addition, the EPA abiding by the Copenhagen Accord to summit Taiwanese NAMAs to the UNFCCC in 2010.

  • Greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, methane, and ozone, play an important role in balancing the temperature of the Earth’s surface by absorbing and emitting radiation within the thermal infrared range from the source. However, with the enormous burning of fossil fuels from the industrial revolution, the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has greatly increased.

  • Agricultural development is widely recognized as crucial for poverty reduction. At the same time, agricultural expansion and ever more intensive practices are widely recognized for their contribution to ecosystem degradation. Less well recognized is that, in many cases, agriculture offers the potential to generate both poverty reduction and better environmental outcomes. The studies presented in this volume look at one policy tool that may address this gap: payments for environmental services (PES).

  • Over the next 10 years, federal spending on crop insurance is projected to outpace spending on traditional commodity programs by about one-third, which might capture the attention of budget cutters looking for potential sources of savings. Insurance companies, farm groups, and some members of Congress are concerned that additional reductions in federal support will negatively impact the financial health of the crop insurance industry and possibly jeopardize the delivery of crop insurance.

  • Petroleum contaminant decomposition and in-situ destruction may be accomplished using chemical oxidation technologies. In contrast to other remedial technologies, contaminant reduction can be seen in short time frames (e.g., weeks or months). As discussed in this chapter, a variety of chemical oxidants and application techniques can be used to bring oxidizing materials into contact with subsurface contaminants to remediate the contamination.

  • The 2004 Climate Plan outlines a series of programs designed to cut 72 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually, beyond the scope of France's commitments under the Kyoto Protocol. The European Union's burden-sharing approach to the Kyoto Protocol calls on France to freeze its greenhouse gas emissions at 1990 levels over the 2008-2012 period, an objective that government officials say will require annual reductions of 54 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions.

  • Extraction activities disturb the land surface through clearing of vegetation, removal of topsoil, excavation of ore and overburden and the construction of over- burden dumps or solar evaporation ponds. Removal and stockpiling of topsoil for subsequent rehabilitation is carried out at many mining opera- tions. In a number of cases, topsoil is removed and placed directly on landscaped reclaimed areas. This avoids the cost of re-transporting topsoil from stock- piles and the possible reduction of biodiversity.

  • Sustainable forest management (SFM) is not a new concept. However, its popularity has increased in the last few decades because of public concern about the dramatic decrease in forest resources. SFM is generally implemented using criteria and indicators (C&I) that define forest management standards, and several countries have established their own sets of C&I within the framework of different international or regional processes. Nevertheless, none of the C&I systems have been universally accepted and future research should consider the current and future indicators....

  • Understanding greenhouse gas sources, emissions, measurements, and management is essential for capture, utilization, reduction, and storage of greenhouse gas, which plays a crucial role in issues such as global warming and climate change. Taking advantage of the authors' experience in greenhouse gases, this book discusses an overview of recently developed techniques, methods, and strategies: - A comprehensive source investigation of greenhouse gases that are emitted from hydrocarbon reservoirs, vehicle transportation, agricultural landscapes, farms, non-cattle confined buildings, and so on.

  • Early metabolic steps, including glycolysis and the activity of the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex, yield a two-carbon fragment called an acetyl group, which is linked to a large cofactor known as coenzyme A (or CoA). It is during the citric acid cycle that acetyl-CoA is oxidized to the waste product, carbon dioxide, along with the reduction of the cofactors NAD+ and ubiquinone

  • The prototypical catalytic reductiveC–Cbond formations, the Fischer-Tropsch reaction [1] and alkene hydroformylation [2], were discovered in 1922 and 1938, respectively [3,4]. These processes, which involve reductive coupling to carbon monoxide, have long been applied to the industrial manufacture of commodity chemicals [5]. Notably, alkene hydroformylation, also known as the oxo-synthesis, has emerged as the largest volume application of homogeneous metal catalysis, accounting for the production of over 7 million metric tons of aldehyde annually.

  • In one's enthusiasm about something, one can easily lose perspective. Thus, although car- sharing clearly has a wide variety of positive effects, it cannot achieve everything one might hope. Even if during the next 20 years, the full potential of car-sharing in terms of number of households were achieved (somewhere around a million), this could only be expected to result in a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions by road traffic of a few percent.

  • The effects of expanded graphite, carbon fibre, needle coke and polyacene, when used as positive electrode additives, on the PbO2 electrode behaviour of lead/acid batteries are studied. It is found that, during the initial stage of charge/discharge cycling, all of the additives are able to raise appreciably the coefficient of utilization of the positive active material. By contrast, they cause, to differing degrees, a reduction in service life when a certain nitrogenous heterocyclic compound (AS) is added to the positive active material. ...

  • The life spans of buildings are long and it may take a number of years for performance issues to come to light, by which time the original designers have long moved on and the opportunity to learn from experience is lost. Further, the competitive and adversarial nature of UK construction inhibits the dissemination of building performance information. Thus, the construction industry in 2010 is generally still delivering buildings that are little better in real performance terms than they were in the 1990s. The UK goal now is to achieve 80% reduction in carbon emissions by 2050.
