Accurate MSW Disposal Estimates Needed to Reduce Landfill Gas Emissions

Reducing landfill gas emissions

A recent study conducted by a research team from Yale and the University of Florida has revealed that the amount of solid waste Americans are disposing in landfill gas emissions is more than double initial estimates. The study concludes that with more accurate waste disposal figures at hand, we can now set about reducing greenhouse […]

Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions: Most Climate-efficient Uses of Natural Gas

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions

If we want to use natural gas to limit greenhouse gas emissions associated with climate change, it would be most effective to use it to replace fuel-oil furnaces and coal-fired power stations to generate heat and electricity rather than using it to fuel cars, buses and other modes of transport, according to a recent study […]
