Neste Touts Transport Fuel Emissions Monitoring Service (Int'l.)
Neste
Date: 2021-09-01
Helsinki-headquartered Neste Oy is the first company in Finland to provide a service for companies and other organizations to monitor their climate emissions caused by the use of transport fuels. Road transport accounts for more than 90 pct of Finland's total transport emissions.

Neste's new digital service helps companies monitor their consumption of Neste transport fuels, the resulting greenhouse gas emissions, and emissions reductions achieved through the use of renewable diesel over a specific time period. The service uses graphs and maps to illustrate the geographic and chronological distribution of consumption and emissions, and provides benchmarking data on each company's road transport emissions in their respective sector.

A recent Neste industry survey found that the use of renewable diesel in the public sector has more than tripled from 2019 to mid-2021 when the total annual consumption of diesel is considered. At the same time, the proportion of renewable diesel from the total consumption of diesel has doubled in the manufacturing industry and increased by more than five-fold in the goods transport, according to Neste.

EDS Systems Touts GHG Emissions Monitoring Tool (Int'l. Report)
EDS Systems
Date: 2020-09-02
Plano, Texas-based EDS Systems reports the launch of its cloud-based "EcoGauge" carbon tax analytics tool to assist organizations with the monitoring and management of their carbon emissions and to ultimately help reduce the administrative burden of compliance measurement and reporting, as well as carbon tax liabilities.

EcoGauge helps remove the complexity inherent in greenhouse-gas (GHG) reporting and provides a near real-time view on GHG emissions and the effect of a manufacturing process change. EcoGauge generates an instant report that classifies emissions by source and calculates liability in terms of the Carbon Tax Act and carbon tax compliance.

According to EDS, "EcoGauge is an effective solution for companies shifting to a more carbon-conscious mindset, because the cost of ignoring climate change will be far higher than the cost of reducing emissions through legislation such as the Carbon Tax Act."

India Launches Emissions Cap-and-Trade System (Int'l. Report)
Cap-and-Trade
Date: 2019-06-07
In New Delhi, the Indian government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is reporting the launch of a pilot, market-based air polltion and emissions cap-and-trade programme in Gujarat, State. The programme is being initiated in Surat, a heavily populated industrial centre with significant emissions and air pollution.

The emissions trading programme incorporates continuous emissions monitoring systems to track industry emissions in real time. About 350 Surat area industries have installed continuous emissions monitoring systems, the data from which will be used to implement and carry out industrial pollution audits and set incentives to encourage compliance.

The Gujarat programme is the first in the world to regulate particulate air pollution, the single-largest threat to human health globally according to the Air Quality Life Index (AQLI).

CO2 Emissions Monitoring Satellites to Launch in 2025 (Int'l)
European Space Agency
Date: 2019-05-31
In Paris, the European Space Agency (ESA) is reporting plans to launch three satellites to monitor world-wide carbon emissions collate emissions and climate change data for the UN global assessment of greenhouse gas emissions in 2028. The planned 2025 launch will form the world's first planet-wide emissions observation system.

Currently, CO2 emissions are measured by conducting "inventories" of fuel burning on a country-by-country basis which, while it can provide a workable estimate of global emissions figures, is affected by poor measuring and reporting protocols by a number of national governments. It is also limited by the scope of the observation equipment used on satellites presently used to measure emissions and track climate change. The new satellites will orbit the planet 14 times a day, passing over each individual source of CO2 emissions approximately every two to three days.
