  1. 1. Clean development Mechanism (CDM) Policy and Implementation in China

    Author : Lei Zeng; Leif Gustavsson; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : Climate change; Clean development mechanism; CDM; CO2; Green House Gas; GHG; landfill gas; sustainable development; China; Energi- och miljöteknik;

    Abstract : China is the second largest emitter of greenhouse gases (GHG) in the world. Since 68% of its primary energy is from coal, China’s average energy intensity is 7.5 times higher than the EU and 4.3 times higher than the US (EU, 2003). READ MORE
