National greenhouse emissions reporting will commence by 1 July 2008 through purpose-built legislation or the National Pollutant Inventory, according to the Council for the Australian Federation.
Carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels have accelerated globally at a far greater rate than expected over recent years, according to a paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The stainless steel iTrans monitor for fixed-point gas detection is built to withstand corrosion. The monitor is suitable for installations in harsh environments such as offshore drilling platforms, chemical plants or applications near a saltwater coastline.
The Australian Coal Association has welcomed an announcement by the federal government of $125 million funding for two important clean coal and solar energy demonstration projects under the governmentâ€™s Low Emissions Technology Development Fund.
The Goyen EMP7 self-contained particulate emission monitor is accurate for most particle and particle characteristics and covers a wide range of dust concentrations, insertion temperatures, duct sizes and stack materials.
Sir Richard Branson has appealed to the rest of the world's aviation industry to follow his lead in reducing the carbon emissions that the industry generates
Australian householders overwhelmingly support government schemes that cut greenhouse gas emissions by helping save on energy and water use, a Newspoll survey in NSW and ACT has found.
Thousands of tonnes of hazardous waste are being harnessed to manufacture Australian cement in an initiative to clean up the image of one of the worldâ€™s biggest polluting industries.
Atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide and some other greenhouse gases displayed near record growth rates last year. But there was also good news about the state of the atmosphere in 2005.
The Lighthouse Solair 5200+ is a 0.5 µm 2.0 CFM or 50 L flow rate battery-operated portable particle counter with built-in printer. It provides six channels of simultaneous particle counting information including four inputs for optional environmental sensors. It features a 5.7" colour touch screen display, data storage up to 3000 data records and a stainless steel surrounding cover.
The Rosemount Analytical OxyBalance oxygen display and averaging system is used for improving gas analysis in large combustion applications. It provides vital oxygen (O2) data that helps operators set ideal fuel-to-air ratios and effectively balance individual burners or sets of burners. The system provides both the averaging and burner variability information that is critical to operators - ultimately minimising wasted resources and optimising plant efficiency.
The Series FLST Air Measurement Station is easy to install - simply connect the tubing to the integral station fittings and then to a differential pressure transmitter, gauge or switch. The product is suitable for measuring air velocity in HVAC building applications.
The Australian Government plans to help local communities, businesses and councils take action to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions with the availability of grants totalling almost $2.2 million.
A multidisciplinary team from the Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Greenhouse Accounting, the Australian National University, CSIRO, Ensis and the University of New South Wales has reaffirmed the value of tree planting to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.
