2 Combustion Image from downloads.htm Aerosols are an important pollutant in urban areas. PM2.5 are considered to have significant adverse effect to human health and stringent regulations to reduce PM2.5 emission have been issued in many world regions.

3 Black Carbon and Climate Black carbon has been the second largest climate forcing after CO2. - Jacobson (2000) Combined with a reduction of black carbon emissions and plausible success in slowing CO2 emissions, this reduction of non-CO2 GHGs could lead to a decline in the rate of global warming, reducing the danger of dramatic climate change (Hansen et al, 2000)

4 Radiative Forcing (IPCC,2001)

5 Challenges Warm or cool? OC scatter light back to space thus acting to reduce the warming BC warms climate by absorbing sun lights Determining the ratio is a difficult task Where & How much of the BC/OC comes from? Different Combustion process / Control Historical & future emission Lack of historical data

6 Aerosol-Climate Study Overview Emission Inventory Emission Factor Fuel Consumption Regional Properties Climate Model

7 Aerosol Emissions from Combustion pathenvi/basics/bas1.html Aerosol from deferent fuel Combustion technology have totally different properties & amount By Using this idea, we develop aerosol emission inventory

8 Total Emissions Where, j species; k country ; l sector; m fuel type ; n fuel/technology combination; EmEmissions FCfuel consumption, kg/yr EFEmission Factor specific to fuel/technology combination (including the effects of control devices), g/kg XFraction of fuel of this sector consumed by a specific technology, where X =1 for each fuel and sector BOND ET AL., 2004

9 Determination of the total emission kg pm 1,000kg Sector : TransportFuel typeFuel ConsumptionEmission FactorFuel Fraction EFpm,g/kg Diesel normal Diesel Super emitter

10 Present Day Estimate of BC/OC - Bond et al. 2004

11 Which of these will change in the future? Fuel Change Coal-fired, high BC Gas or electric, low BC We Use IPCC SRES Scenario for fuel estimation

12 Which of these will change in the future? Technology Change Old burner - high BC Modern Combustor, low BC We Develop Dynamic Simulation tool For future technology splits

13 Which of these will change in the future? Emission Control Technology Street, 2004 We Develop Dynamic Simulation tool For future technology splits Electrostatic precipitator, high collection efficiency Cyclone, low collection efficiency

14 Governing factors of technology change Diffusion Studies suggest Adoption rate of new technology is: -Positively related to the Benefits & Technology popularity -Negatively related to the Costs We use (based on historical trend simulation): Emission Standards of species ( Regulation ) Technology popularity (e.g. Installed Capacity) Technology limitation (Newer technology takes time to be used in Developing countries) Economic situation

15 Drivers : Regulation and Control Efficiency

16 Drivers : Government Regulation

17 Drivers : Capacity - Case of Cyclone Furnace Uncontrolled NO Concentrations for Types of combustion (Air Pollution Control Manual, 1992, p. 216)

18 Technology Choice Probabilities - Case of Cyclone Furnace

19 Drivers : - Boiler Population Trend

20 Estimate Boiler Age Distribution - From Fuel Consumption Data

21 Emission Standards Modeling - Particulate Matter over GDP per Capita

22 Drivers : Industry Sector Change Agriculture Dominant ---- Service Sector Dominant

23 Description of The Model

24 Schematic diagram for developing future emissions inventory model

25 Preliminary Result Total global coal-boiler capacity is estimated to increase (in all scenarios, Ranging from 394%-605% for the power sector) Use of coal boilers for power generation is expected to be high in many world regions, because the demand for electricity is expected to increase in all scenarios (from 340%-540%) and use of coal for electricity generation to remain high (20%-31%)

26 Preliminary Result (Cont.) The boiler capacity in South Asia is forecasted to take the largest of the 2050 values of 9%-20% under most scenarios except A2 scenario which expects USA as the largest share
