Online Magazine – Emissions Reduction

1 July 2010 (Last Updated July 1st, 2010 18:30)

Monitor, control, clean, capture and store – emissions are on their way out.

Online Magazine – Emissions Reduction

In this month's issue we look at emissions reduction and pollution control.

As governments and utility companies worldwide are trying to reduce pollution from fossil-fuelled power stations, we investigate if optimising separate parts of the system comes at the expense of the system as a whole.

We also report on the latest technologies being developed for monitoring pollutants and plant performance efficiency and selective catalytic reduction (SCR), which could be a key technology in cleaning up coal.

Using an engaging mix of editorial, images, video and animation, the online magazine will bring you in-depth coverage into the latest developments in emissions reduction.

Next month's edition

In next month's issue we wrap up the latest developments and innovations in the alternative energy field.

With peak oil approaching and increasing concerns that demand will outstrip supply, massive worldwide investments in renewable energy are needed.

We report on where the world is heading for its energy supplies and the efforts that are being made to find alternatives, looking at new, cleaner gas technologies as well as the renewable options of solar, wind and wave.

Although previously associated with additional costs, green power solutions are now doing their bit to improve efficiency. We look at the economy of green technology, and the true cost of a reduced carbon future.
