New reaction chemistry may reduce the energy input and carbon dioxide emissions from processes that convert coal into liquid fuels.

Pakistan contributes little to greenhouse gas emission and global climate change. Its total energy-related carbon dioxide emission, measure about 100 million tons, out of which, 46 percent is from oil-related emissions, 45 percent from gas and 9 percent from coal, an Asian Development Bank Study report said.

Chief executives from Europe

The study examines the hypothesis that citizens with higher social capital score may have better performance on CO2 reduction and energy saving. For that purpose, WEB-based survey is conducted and 1500 responses are obtained. To calculate social capital, the concept of Japan Cabinet Office's SC Index is also used as the reference.

Recently the fuel ethanol production from crops has attracted much attention not only in the US, EU and Brazil, but also in Japan because the bio-ethanol is perceived as being "carbon neutral" and useful as a countermeasure against global warming.

The purpose of this paper is to identify and examine policies, technologies and practices in China for coal mine methane (CMM) recovery and use, focusing on the unique challenges and opportunities of medium- and smaller-sized coal mines.

Before a post-Kyoto accord considering all aspects of countries emissions, a first step may be necessary to prepare Chinese and Indian businesses to new economic conditions internalizing the constraints of climate change. Carbon markets serve as a

This paper is meant to deliver input into the political discussion on Emission Performance Standards (EPS) in the EU power sector. The paper will explore the effects of the introduction of an EPS on electricity sector emissions until 2030 and discuss various EPS related implementation issues.

Among all the possible fuels that can produce a zero-emission car, petrol must rank right at the bottom, if at all. But for mechanical engineer Andrei Fedorov, petrol is the right fuel, or at least good enough, to run a zero-emission car.

The world is now in the early stages of an energy revolution that over the next few decades could be as momentous as the emergence of oil-and electricity-based economies a century ago. Double-digit market growth, annual capital flows of more than $100 billion, sharp declines in technology costs, and rapid progress in government policies all herald a promising new energy era.
