An assessment of the market impacts and full lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions from incentivizing the use of molasses for biofuel production in the EU.

Evaluates well-to-wheel greenhouse gas emissions from soot-free urban transit bus types in 20 megacities.

Compiles a high-resolution ship emissions inventory in the Greater Pearl River Delta (GPRD), a heavily populated and prosperous region with heavy ship traffic. Because this traffic contributes to poor local air quality, the Chinese government has identified the GPRD region as a key target for steps to control emissions from ships.
