South Fremantle Senior High School has become officially as a certified carbon neutral school.
Aspen Plus Process Simulator software, part of the aspenOne Engineering software suite, is designed to help process manufacturers model, track and reduce CO2 emissions.
Carbon is 'produced' whenever a crew jumps into the truck to go to a site, whenever the pumps are energised and running. This paper describes the vastly improved use of energy, and hence reduced carbon production, when self-priming pumps are used instead of submersible pumps.
Scientists have discovered an abrupt increase in the uptake of atmospheric carbon dioxide by the land biosphere (which comprises all of the planet’s plant and animal ecosystems) since 1988. Without this natural increase in uptake, the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere would probably have increased even more rapidly over the last two decades.
A paper by Stanford geophysicists Professor Mark Zoback and Professor Steven Gorelick has claimed that carbon capture and storage (CCS) has a high probability of triggering earthquakes where large volumes of carbon dioxide are injected into the brittle rocks commonly found in continental interiors.
The production of some of Australia’s favourite beverages will become greener thanks to a partnership between CO2 Australia and the brewers of the famous Bundaberg Ginger Beer, Bundaberg Brewed Drinks.
Curtin University researchers will develop new technology for reducing carbon dioxide emissions after receiving $1 million of state government funding.
A study released today by carbon analytics firm RepuTex indicates that companies liable under the carbon price mechanism will pay up to 45% less than initially expected, with cost savings totalling over $10bn translating into significantly reduced carbon price impacts for Australian consumers and regional commodities buyers.
The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) has endorsed New Zealand ‘no-tillage’ technology for reducing the impact of climate change on the production of crops. Now, the crusade to encourage more farmers to adopt no-tillage techniques on their properties has been taken to Europe.
Almost 300 organisations have galvanised under the banner of Businesses for a Clean Economy to voice their support for putting a price on carbon.
The Clean Energy Council has said that the commencement of the carbon price yesterday represents a key step in the transformation of Australia’s energy sector, moving Australia toward a clean energy economy that will shield us from higher costs over the long term.
The Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO), the national power system and market operator, does not foresee any energy supply security impacts during the immediate transition period following the introduction of the carbon price on 1 July 2012.
Almost three-quarters (72%) of Australian firms believe the carbon price is here to stay, in one form or another, and 85% of firms directly impacted already have a carbon reduction strategy in place, according to a new business survey.
Preparations for Australia’s carbon pricing mechanism shifted into high gear on 2 April when the Clean Energy Regulator came into being.
Despite the introduction of the carbon tax being just weeks away, MYOB research reveals close to half of Australia’s small to medium business operators (SMEs) are uninformed about the legislation’s likely impact on their livelihood.
