Combined heat and power: a clean energy solution
Combined heat and power: a clean energy solution

1st August 2012

Organisation(s): Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), US Department of Energy (DOE)

Topic(s): Energy efficiency

Combined heat and power (CHP) is an efficient and clean approach to generating electric power and useful thermal energy from a single fuel source. Instead of purchasing electricity from the distribution grid and burning fuel in an on-site furnace or boiler to produce thermal energy, an industrial or commercial facility can use CHP to provide both energy services in one energy-efficient step.

1996 protocol to the convention on the prevention of marine pollution by dumping of wastes and other matter, 1972 and resolutions adopted by the special meeting
1996 protocol to the convention on the prevention of marine pollution by dumping of wastes and other matter, 1972 and resolutions adopted by the special meeting

24th March 2006

Organisation(s): Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

Topic(s): Health, safety and environment

 The 1996 Protocol represents a major change of approach to the question of how to regulate the use of the sea as a depository for waste materials in that, in essence, dumping is prohibited, except for materials on an approved list. This contrasts with the 1972 Convention which permitted dumping of wastes at sea, except for those materials on a banned list. The first Meeting under the Protocol was held from 30 October to 3 November 2006, in conjunction with the 28th Consultative Meeting of the Parties to the London Convention. One of the first key issues for discussion under the 1996 Protocol was a review of the compatibility of CO2 capture and storage in sub-seabed geological structures, as part of a suite of measures to tackle the challenge of climate change and ocean acidification.
