Project Title & Description
Arctic Black Carbon: Reduction of Black Carbon Emissions from Diesel Sources
This project will focus on four main steps to reduce black carbon emissions from diesel sources in the Russian Arctic:
1) Assess primary sources of black carbon in the Russian Arctic
2) Develop a targeted baseline emission inventory for black carbon in key areas
3) Implement targeted, on-the-ground demonstration projects for reducing black carbon
4) Establish policy recommendations and financing options for reducing black carbon
Results of this project will be reported to the Arctic Council through the Arctic Contaminants Action Program (ACAP) and to the U.S.-Russia Bilateral Presidential Commission through the Environment Working Group (EWG).
