Global Climate Change DigestArchives of the
Global Climate Change Digest

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



Item #d93mar27

"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. 1993.

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.

Item #d93mar28

"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.

Item #d93mar29

"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, 1992.

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.

Item #d93mar30

"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.

Item #d93mar31

"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 1992.

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 technology.

Item #d93mar32

"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. 1992.

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.
