"Apple is committed to leaving the world better than we found it. Part of our commitment is to reduce our own impact on climate change by using renewable energy sources and driving energy efficiency in our products and facilities. However, we believe that governments, as well as industry leaders, must take a lead role in the global battle to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fight climate change. For a number of reasons, EPA should not repeal the Clean Power Plan."
According to Apple, adopting the plan would help the US become a global leader in the effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Apple adds that its own efforts have shown that the CPP's targets are achievable without negatively impacting reliability or resiliency.

The biggest concern to shipowners is that if the IMO fails to come up with a solid "voluntary" plan, the European Union will include shipping in its Emissions Trading Scheme, where a cap is set on permissible greenhouse gases and amounts that can be emitted.
Shipping was excluded from the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement with governments entrusting the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to find a consensus on carbon, sulfur and other emissions and air pollutant reduction measures from ocean going vessels. According to the IMO,
shipping contributed about 3.1 pct of total annual CO2 emissions in the period from 2007 to 2012. Vessel emissions are projected to jump between 50 pct and 250 pct by 2050 if no action is taken.

"Several media reports over the past week have confirmed the fears we voiced in January about EPA's expansive and abusive administration of the small refiner exemption provision," said RFA President and CEO Bob Dinneen. 'One article even quoted a refining executive as saying EPA is 'handing out those exemptions is like trick or treat candy.' EPA's unbelievable issuance of secret compliance bailouts to refining giants like Andeavor goes far beyond the pale and stomps all over President Trump's commitment to protect the RFS and support America's family farmers, whom he called 'the backbone of our nation.' Combined with the free pass EPA handed out this week to Philadelphia Energy Solutions (PES) and the Agency's refusal to enforce the 2016 RFS requirements as remanded by the courts, these subversive actions are literally destroying demand for both ethanol and corn.
"EPA's secretive actions are having real impacts on the marketplace. Every new revelation about EPA's latest handout or kickback to refiners serves as yet another gut punch to markets that are already reeling from the impacts of new Chinese tariffs. Make no mistake, EPA's underhanded refinery waivers are negatively affecting the welfare of our nation's ethanol producers and the very livelihood of America's family farms. At the very least, they deserve some answers about EPA's cloak-and-dagger decision-making process on small refiner exemption petitions."

The toolset is critically important to perform much of the design and calculations, thus reducing the cost of both pilot projects and commercial facilities.
The release makes the toolset code available for researchers in industry, government, and academia to freely use, modify, and customize in support of the development of carbon capture technologies and other related technologies. The toolset is hosted on GitHub.
The CCSI Toolset capabilities include: rapid computational screening; accelerated design & evaluation and; risk management support
Led by NETL, CCSI leverages the the US DOE's National Laboratories' core strengths in modeling and simulation -- bringing together the best capabilities at NETL, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. CCSI has more than 50 industrial partners representing the power generation industry, equipment manufacturers, technology providers, engineering and construction firms, and software vendors. Academic participants include Carnegie Mellon University, Princeton University, West Virginia University, Boston University, and the University of Texas.
This critical work is being extended by the Carbon Capture Simulation for Industry Impact project, which is using the CCSI Toolset to support the scale up of second-generation capture technologies and the development of new transformational carbon capture systems through partnerships with technology developers.
