  • Helping cities in Brazil adopt biogas technology for sanitation and power

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    Background

    Since the 1970s Brazil has been a leader in renewable energy (RE) particularly in its use of hydropower and ethanol. However the use of other RE sources has not been as widespread.

    Purpose

    To work with 3-5 Brazilian city governments to focus on methane recovery as a RE source developing tools for other cities to use and policies to regulate solid waste disposal landfills and waste water treatment plants.

    Implementor

    ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability-Latin America and Caribbean Secretariat

  • GHG Inventory and Action Plan for Ekuhurleni Municipality, South Africa

    Type: 
    Publication

    A GHG profile of city of Ekuhurleni based on an inventory of different emission sources in the city. An action plan for targeted RE and EE measures has been developed for the city based on the findings of the GHG inventory. A guide for developing a GHG inventory for a city has also been developed as part of this project and can be found in this database as well - "Guideline on preparing a City-level Emissions Inventory, Analysis and Process for RE and EE Programmes".

  • A Zirconium(IV)-Manganese(IV) Binary Oxide Adsorbent for Efficient Removal of Arsenate and Arsenite from Aqueous Solutions

    Type: 
    Product

    Technology Overview: Adsorbents for removing contaminants typically include activated carbon metal oxides like titania (TiO2) iron oxide etc. The present technology provides an environmentally friendly method in preparing alternative group of metal oxides as effective adsorbents for heavy metal contaminants. A binary and ternary metal oxide has been tested to effectively adsorb/remove aqueous contaminants like arsenic (As) lead (Pb) and copper (Cu). Such adsorbent(s) can be conveniently used as fine particles with filtration or can be loaded on porous carriers and used in column.
