A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999



Item #d93apr121

Technology information exchange. A greenhouse gas technology information exchange (GREENTIE), supported by 11 member countries of the International Energy Agency and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, will begin operating this summer. Initially it will provide information on technologies and practices associated with the use of energy in all sectors; eventually it will cover nonenergy sector sources of greenhouse gases such as agriculture. To be managed by NOVEM, the Netherlands energy and environment agency, GREENTIE will be accessable by national or regional computer networks.

Item #d93apr122

Natural Gas Star Program. The U.S. EPA has begun a project with 14 natural gas companies, representing about 30 percent of the industry, to find new opportunities to cost-effectively reduce methane emissions from gas distribution systems. For information contact Bruce Grag, Oil & Gas Systems, Global Change Div., U.S. EPA, Washington DC 20460 (202-233-9044).

Item #d93apr123

"IPCC to Expand Assessment of Human Health Impacts," Global Environ. Change Rep., p. 6, Mar. 12. The new Working Group II of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has proposed to expand its assessment of climate change impacts on health and air quality. Many members think the topic did not get sufficient attention in the first IPCC assessment. The second assessment is scheduled for mid-1993.

Item #d93apr124

"Du Pont Accelerates CFC Phaseout," P. Zurer, Chem. Eng. News, pp. 5-6, Mar. 15. Du Pont plans to end all production of CFCs in developed countries by the end of 1994, one year earlier than required by the revised Montreal Protocol.

Item #d93apr125

"EPA CO2-Monitoring Regulations Go into Effect," Energy, Econ. & Clim. Change, pp. 11-12, Feb. The regulations, published in the Jan. 11 Federal Register (pp. 3701-3757), require most U.S. power plants to begin to monitor and report their CO2 emissions, by Nov. 1993 for "Phase I" units and by January 1995 for others.
