Housing trends

Jun 28, 2019 ...Housing trends The growth in Canada's population and economy increases the demand for housing. Most of the energy used to meet this demand still comes from fossil fuels, which leads to increasing emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases. Key results Between 1990 and 2016, the number of occupied dwellings (such as houses, condo units and apartments

Mar 29, 2019 ..., if a report is required. Equation 1 Long Description Equation 1 is the result of the sum of total mass of each of the gases or gas species multiplied by their respective global warming potential (GWP). This calculation is done according to the total emissions during the calendar year for greenhouse gas (GHG) emission sources described. Since a facility is required

Carbon accounting | Natural Resources Canada

Jul 2, 2019 ...Carbon accounting Canada’s forest carbon reporting system is called the National Forest Carbon Monitoring, Accounting and Reporting System (NFCMARS). Its purpose is to estimate forest carbon stocks, changes in carbon stocks, and emissions of non-CO2 greenhouse gases in Canada’s managed forests. NFCMARS is designed to estimate past changes in forest carbon

Rock Fragmentation with Explosive–Free Soundless Chemical Demolition Agents | Natural Resources Canada

Aug 6, 2019 ... in drilled boreholes in the rock. Shortly after the injection, the SCDA expands, exerting pressure on the borehole and causing it to break apart. The method will be tested in the laboratory and validated at an underground mine site. Once adopted, this new method will result in a reduction of greenhouse gases due to the reduction in ventilation normally associated

Greenhouse gases also include gases generated through industrial processes such as hydroflurocarbons, perflurocarbons and sulphur hexafluoride. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) GDP is a measure of economic activity within a country. It is the market value of all goods and services in a year

Global warming potentials

Feb 18, 2019 ...Global warming potentials All greenhouse gases (GHGs) are not equal. Each one has a unique atmospheric lifetime and heat-trapping potential. The Global Warming Potential (GWP) metric examines each greenhouse gas’s ability to trap heat in the atmosphere compared to carbon dioxide (CO2). We measure this over a specified time horizon. Often, we calculate GHG
