Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Jan2009, Vol. 81 Issue 1, pBSE9
The article focuses on the global economics of lower emissions. The U.S. gives much emphasis on nitrogen oxide while European and other countries have enacted rigid environmental policies that carry on reducing carbon emissions. Advance businesses will reduce emissions on their own and be responsible enough to sustain the efficiency of their boiler rooms as one of the first important places to economically reduce carbon emissions in the U.S even without such rigid environmental policies.
