“Control of greenhouse gases emissions and its effects on E&C industry”

The world is marching towards controlling emissions of GHG (Greenhouse gases), particularly CO2. This paper accepts that for a fact and will not cover the pros and cons of such controlling. Instead, the paper will a) track the history of international agreements on reducing emissions of GHG (particularly CO2); b) trace the proposals for emission taxation vs cap and trade; and c) review several chemical and energy industrial processes in which the proposed taxation level will significantly affect their demand use vs alternates.

Speaker: Michael Hyland, Principal Engineer, Wunderlich Malec Engineering
