Research Project


This project, Clearinghouse of Technological Options for Reducing Anthropogenic Non-CO₂ GHG Emissions from All Sectors, gathered and evaluated information and data that are available in the literature regarding technological options for reducing anthropogenic non-CO₂ greenhouse gas (NCGG) emissions from all sectors in California. Emissions sources of the NCGGs (methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, and sulfur hexafluoride) and black carbon in California were first identified. Data and information of many viable technological options were then gathered, evaluated, and presented in a systematic way for easy comparison and use. This seminar will present the approaches and findings of this project.
