A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999
FROM VOLUME 6, NUMBER 3, MARCH 1993
ANTHROPOGENIC EMISSIONS AND CONTROL: CARBON DIOXIDE
"Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Abatement and Control: The Role of Coal,"
I.M. Smith (IEA Coal Res., Gemini House, 10-18 Putney Hill, London SW15 6AA,
UK), K.V. Thambimuthu, Energy & Fuels, 7(1), 7-13, Jan.-Feb.
Discusses the basis for quantifying the relative effect of greenhouse gas
emissions from coal use, and the outlook for further improvements in the
efficiency of conventional and advanced power generation, which is preferable to
emission control. There is no firm basis available for evaluating the effect of
emission reductions on global warming potential from coal.
"The CO2 Balance Affected by the German Pulp and Paper Industry,"
U. Hamm Inst. Papierfabrikat, Alexanderstr. 8, W-6100 Darmstadt, Ger.), L.
Gottsching, Papier, 46(10A), V63-V64, Oct. 1992. In German.
Analyzes all CO2 sources and sinks associated with the life cycle of paper
(from photosynthesis to landfilling), and develops a balance model which
differentiates between CO2 emissions associated with fossil fuel use and those
related to renewable raw materials. Evaluates options for CO2 minimization.
"The Sugar Cane Agroindustry: Its Contribution to Reducing CO2
Emissions in Brazil," I.D. Macedo (Ctr. Tecnol. Copersucar, CP 162,
Piracicaba SP, Brazil), Biomass & Bioenergy, 3(2), 77-80,
In Brazil, sugar cane bagasse and ethanol substitute for fuel oil in the
food and chemical industries and for gasoline, avoiding the equivalent of about
18% of the total fossil fuel CO2 emissions.
"The Passenger Car and the Greenhouse Effect," C.A. Amann
(General Motors Res. Labs., Detroit MI 48202), Intl. J. Vehicle Design,
13(4), 305-334, 1992.
A wide-ranging examination of topics such as the CO2 reductions available
from alternative fossil fuels for automobiles, emissions decreases expected from
fleet turnover, and leading nonfossil-fuel options for the future.
"Accounting for Changes in Australian Carbon Dioxide Emissions"
M.S. Common (Ctr. Environ. Studies, Australian Natl. Univ., GPO Box 4, Canberra
2601, Australia), U. Salma, Energy Econ., 14(3), 217-225, July
Describes a method for allocating a nation's total emissions ranging from
deliveries to final demand, and for decomposing changes in total emissions into
contributions from changes in final demand, changes in fuel mix and changes in
"Thermoeconomic Analysis of Technical Greenhouse Warming Mitigation,"
R. Kummel (Inst. Phys., Univ. Wurzburg, W-8700 Wurzburg, Ger.), H.M. Groscurth,
U. Schubler, Intl. J. Hydrogen Energy, 17(4), 293-298, Apr.
Presents a thermodynamic-economic analysis of CO2 removal from the flue
gases of hard-coal-fired power plants using refrigeration under pressure.
Evaluates trade-offs among fossil fuel conservation, CO2 emissions and the total
cost of the energy system, for major industrial nations.
