    Abstract: Market design is the core issue for reducing CO2 emissions from coal-fired power industry, however the current carbon market has some deficiencies in this area. Utilizing the combinatorial auction way, this article proposed an enhanced carbon market special for power industry by complementing current cap-and-trade system. Concretely, the enhanced m...

    Abstract: In order to solve the problem of refractory industrial wastewater, the phenol wastewater was used as the treatment object. The treatment effect of heated activated potassium persulfate oxidation on phenol wastewater was studied. The reaction time, reaction temperature, K2S2O8 dosage, pH and initial phenol concentration on the treatment effect were ... Show More

    Abstract: Identifying the dynamics of aboveground biomass (AB) is vital for effective grassland management, yet knowledge on this phenomenon remains limited in the low-mountain dry grasslands (LMDG) of the Tianshan Mountains. In this study, systematic observations were conducted from 2014 to 2017 to determine AB dynamics in the LMDG of the Tianshan Mountains... Show More

    Abstract: White horticultural peat is proven to be a superior growing medium. It is microbiologically active, it binds nutrients and water significantly due to its favorable cation exchange capacity and porosity. Unfortunately, horticultural peat is a very slowly renewable biomass, and good quality horticultural peat is not so common even in peatland-rich co... Show More
