Yield-scaled global warming potential from N2O emissions and CH4 oxidation for almond (Prunus dulcis) irrigated with nitrogen fertilizers on arid land.
Concentrations of CH4 and N2O in gas samples were analyzed using a gas chromatography (Agilent 7890A, USA) equipped with a flame ionization detector (FID) and an electron capture detector (ECD).
With the addition of the newly completed 600t/y facility in South Korea to the existing 1,200t/y plant at Kawasaki, Japan, the Showa Denko Group's high-purity N2O supply capacity has increased to 1,800t/y in total.
"Instead, we think it will be factors like greenhouse gases, N2O and methane." Fellow researchers in the US-Danish study say other problems, such as continued global warming, make ozone levels unlikely to return to pre-1980 figures.
Emission of nitric oxide (NO) and particularly of nitrous oxide (N2O) through these processes becomes a special concern as N2O average lifetime in atmosphere is 114-120 years and it is 3800 times stronger than CO2 to cause global warming.
With the continuous use of N fertilizers for crop production the emission of N2O is consistently increasing in the atmosphere.

Washington, Jan 14 ( ANI ): Scientists investigating the role of streams and rivers in global climate change have suggested that the global warming potential of methane gas exceeds that of nitrous oxide (N2O).
It concerns projects that involve the destruction of hydro fluorocarbon 23 (HFC-23) and nitrous oxide (N2O) resulting from the production of adipic acid.
According to Pataki, the proposed regulation revises New York's existing Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) program to address such GHGs as carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O) and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).
The concentration of greenhouse gases (GHG) including carbon dioxide (CO2) methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) in the atmosphere has been significantly increased due to human activities.
These new provisions(1) concern projects that involve the destruction of hydrofluorocarbon 23 (HFC-23) and nitrous oxide (N2O) from adipic acid production.
