  • Plan to Cut Pollution from Combustion Plants Watered Down by the Council

    Today (Dec 17, 2014) the Council of Ministers agreed on a position that would limit emissions from medium-size combustion plants [1] but create too many loopholes and unjustified flexibility schemes to be fully effective. The Council’s position exempts operators of refineries, plants operated on large-scale farming sites or plants on islands and there would be complex transition periods for ...

  • New research shows that two thirds of soot pollution in South Asia comes from biomass combustion

    A gigantic brownish haze from various burning and combustion processes is blanketing India and surrounding land and oceans during the winter season. This soot-laden Brown Cloud is affecting South Asian climate as much or more than carbon dioxide and cause premature deaths of 100 000s annually, yet its sources have been poorly understood. In this week's issue of Science Örjan Gustafsson and ...
