  • Reducing adverse air flow

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, August 4, 2017
    Objective: 

    With more than half the Earth’s population now living in urban areas, some changes in the indoor and outdoor climates of cities are bound to occur. Climate scientists’ greatest concern is traditionally the urban heat island (UHI) effect – city areas where temperatures can be several degrees higher because there is lots of concrete and little blue or green infrastructure like lakes, rivers and parks. But another effect – air flow – can also cause serious health problems.

  • Climate Finance Roadmap to US$100 Billion

    Type: 
    Publication

    Australia, with the United Kingdom, led developed countries to deliver a roadmap to meeting the collective goal of mobilizing US$100 billion a year in climate finance for developing countries by 2020. The roadmap aims to provide increased predictability and transparency about how the goal will be reached, and it sets out the range of actions developed countries will take to meet it.

  • Global Technology Roadmap for CCS in Industry Sectoral Assessment: Refineries

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday, January 7, 2012
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    This report provides an overview of the potential application of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies to refineries. It describes the industry today, including its CO2 emissions and goes on to analyse various ways in which CO2 capture technology could be applied. It looks at legislative influences and costs and concludes by identifying challenges and recommended next steps. Transport and storage aspects of CCS are only touched upon as they are common with other industries.

  • CO2 Capture in the Cement Industry

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, January 7, 2008
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is one opportunity for further major reductions in emissions, and the industry is currently considering the feasibility of applying this technique in order to plan for the future. In many ways the cement industry represents a good opportunity for CCS because cement plants are relatively large point sources of CO2. The CO2 concentration in cement plants' flue gas is relatively high, and over 60 per cent of total CO2 emissions from a modern cement plant are from mineral decomposition. This cannot be avoided by use of alternative energy sources.

  • CCS Roadmap for Industry: High-Purity CO2 Sources Sectoral Assessment

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, February 9, 2010
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    Implementation of carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and storage (CCS) technologies for most industrial activities--for example, boilers, turbines, iron and steel furnaces and cement kilns--requires a capture step to convert a relatively dilute stream of CO2 to a higher concentration so as to allow economic transportation and storage. This report focuses on the role of high-purity CO2 sources in CCS demonstration and deployment. The roadmap will be a valuable resource to stakeholders, including policymakers and regulators, across the globe.
