Assessment of the use of stabilized coal and oil ash for construction of artificial fishing reefs: Comparison of fishes observed on small ash and concrete reefs
Are carbon taxes the best tool to implement the Kyoto commitments, a comment on Stephen Smith's paper
This data set shows the locations of more than 3000 North American power-generating facilities using fossil fuel sources, and includes information on each plantâsÂ primary fuel; the generating capacity; and the air emissions of SO2, NOx, Hg, PM2.5, PM10, CH4, N2O, and CO2.Â The data were assembled primarily from the three North American countriesâ national emission inventories: the National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) in Canada; the National Emissions Inventory of Mexico (INEM), which is compiled from publicly available databases and reports; and the EPA emissions and Generation Resource Integrated DatabaseÂ (eGRID2007) and the EPA 2005 National Emissions Inventory (NEI) in the United States.Â These...
Historical record of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxin (PCDD) and polychlorinated dibenzofuran (PCDF) deposition to a remote lake site in north-west Scotland, UK
Short-term improvements in public health from global-climate policies on fossil-fuel combustion: an interim report
Development and diffusion of new renewable energy technologies play a central role in mitigating climate change. In this context, small-scale deep geothermal power has seen growing interest in recent years as an environmentally friendly, non-intermittent energy source with large technical potential. Following the first successful demonstration projects, the German geothermal industry is currently experiencing an internationally unparalleled growth. In this study we explore the factors driving this development, and the role geothermal power production could play in the future of the German electricity market. For this, we apply the scenario technique, based on literature analysis and interviews with companies operating...
