  • Water-efficient appliances and fixtures

    Type: 
    Technology
    Objective:

    Total freshwater withdrawals reported for 163 countries by the Pacific Institute showed that in the median country residential water use accounted for 16% of total freshwater withdrawals (Gleick et al., 2006). Therefore, residential conservation efforts can make a strong positive contribution to reducing pressure on water resources. Reducing water use in municipal systems also contributes to climate change mitigation by decreasing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

  • The global nutrition landscape: Assessing progress

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    AS DISCUSSED IN CHAPTER 1, SETTING TARGETS IS ONE MANIFESTATION OF POLITICAL COMMITMENT. COUNTRIES HAVE ALREADY MADE A SERIES OF COMMITMENTS TO ATTAIN global nutrition targets by 2025 (Panel 2.1). For maternal, infant, and young child nutrition, the 2012 World Health Assembly (WHA) set six targets for 2025. The Global Nutrition Report tracks five of these.1 The WHA also agreed on nine noncommunicable disease (NCD) targets, one of which—“Halt the rise in diabetes and obesity”—is tracked in this report via three indicators.

  • Reduction in Distribution Losses and CO2 Emissions in Japan Through Upsizing Low-Voltage CVT Cable Conductors

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    This report describes how the Japanese Electric Wire and Cable Maker's Association established the most appropriate current for power cables with economy and environment in mind as one of their standards. The current is intended for low-voltage CVT cables used commonly in factories and buildings. The report provides estimated reductions in distribution losses and CO2 emissions when all low-voltage CVT cables in sites of consumers in Japan are switched to those with upsized conductors, revealing the total annual reduction in distribution losses in Japan.

  • Advanced wet quenching for iron and steel sector

    Type: 
    Technology
    Sectors:
    Objective:

    The iron and steel sector is the second-largest industrial user of energy, consuming 616 Mtoe in 2007 and is also the largest industrial source of CO2 emissions. The five most important producers – China, Japan, the United States, the European Union and Russia – account for over 70% of total world steel production. A standard technique that is applied worldwide is the coke wet quenching of coke, where quenching vapors are bunkered before delivery to the atmosphere and subsequently or immediately a condensate is drawn off and cooled further.
