Smarter fuels cut UK emissions by 10 million tonnes

boil.jpgJust a quickie for you here: Defra has put out the latest results of its studies on the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions by person, gas, industry and so on. Wondering how we’re doing? Read on, for Greenbang has picked the tastiest stats for your emission degustation…

In 2007, UK emissions of the basket of six greenhouse gases(1) covered by the Kyoto Protocol were provisionally estimated to be 639.4 million tonnes carbon dioxide equivalent(2). This was 2 per cent lower than the 2006 figure of 652.3 million tonnes.

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the main greenhouse gas, accounting for about 85 per cent of total UK greenhouse gas emissions in 2006, the latest year for which final results are available. In 2007, UK net emissions of carbon dioxide(3) were provisionally estimated to be 543.7 million tonnes. This was 2 per cent lower than the 2006 figure of 554.5 million tonnes. The decrease resulted from fuel switching from coal to natural gas for electricity generation, combined with lower fossil fuel consumption by households and industry.

There was little change in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions on an end-user basis between 2005 and 2006. In 2006, total CO2 emissions were 554.5 million tonnes. Ninety per cent of this total was accounted for by three sectors; business, transport and residential, which represented 35 per cent, 28 per cent and 27 per cent of the total respectively. Of these sectors there was an increase of 1.4 per cent in business emissions, from 193.4 million tonnes in 2005 to 196.1 million tonnes in 2006, but little change in residential or transport emissions.

  1. Dear Sir,

    Our company is specialized in research and development in the field of environmentally sound technologies.

    Clear Air is our solution for carbon dioxide (CO2) emission reduction produced from the combustion of fossil fuels. Now available.

    Our CO2 Emission Reduction Technology called Clear Air, can be quickly implemented in the different fields of application including smoke stacks, and land-sea-air transport. CO2 emission reduction is done in-situ with an optimal reduction of 99.9%. This solution has not secondary polluting effect.

    Clear Air is an effective and relatively cheap technology, mounted behind the CO2 source.
    For example in a car mounted on the exhaust system it is capable to reduce the CO2 emission from 40% even up to 99.9%.
    In the case of passenger cars or heavy goods vehicle or large off road vehicles the technology of construction and manufacturing does not need to change.
    The Clear Air device can be mounted onto the existing parts of the vehicle.

    The Clear Air know-how together with a manufactured prototype is our property. The efficiency is measurable and can be immediately tested. Exact technology exists with computerized modelling for the CO2 reduction process and a controllable prototype equipment for use as well.

    The principle behind the CO2 emission reductions solution is part of a secret know-how. The intellectual property is offered for use by Licensing (Technology Transfer).

    The Environmental Unique Solutions AG. is delivering only technology and know-how for the Clear Air, in form of Customized Licenses.
    We do not manufacture and sell the device based on this technology. (More information at the site: http://www.eusag.ch/clearair.html )
