1). Due to increasing rate of greenhouse gas in the environment, the rate of environment pollution has increased (Sweetapple, Fu & Butler, 2014). The greenhouse gas calculation is being analysed on the basis of the conversion process, biomass production distribution and transport. In the case of GHG emission, carbon dioxide occur by the natural way and emitted in the atmosphere through human activities and natural process (Davis, Ahiduzzaman & Kumar, 2018). Most of the Greenhouse gas are being created due to human activities. This can be said that it is very important to calculate the greenhouse emission for analysing the opportunities for energy and cost service.
As the rate of energy use is closely connected with the Greenhouse emission, therefore, by measuring this the way to reduce the greenhouse emission can be analysed, which will be effective in the case of saving the cost (Bryan et al., 2015). In this study it has been identified that a large number of greenhouse gas emitted from the electricity-producing industries. Ere the study has shown how the water management process impacts on the air pollution. Tumpa Bay water developed the calculation method for analysing the GHG emission. It has been identified that GHG emission is associated with the water production. Depending on the energy consumption data from the data management system, the GHG emission is being calculated. Here the process is being calculated on the basis of emission data. EPA emission data is being converted to pounds (lbs) and the sum of source and the total megawatt-hour (MWh) produced are being converted to kWh. This describes the emissions lbs per kWh. By using multiplied source by Tampa Bay Water’s annual greenhouse gas emissions is being calculated. Here the pounds per kWh of emissions are multiplied by the kWh per MG produced to calculate emissions per MG. These steps are replicated for each energy source and energy type.
Calculation lbs of Pollutant Per Year
2). Greenhouse gas emission is considered as one of the sustainable performance indicator (Arent et al., 2014). It has been mentioned in this study that the greenhouse protocols are very influencing in the case of managing the categories of emissions. Therefore three types of scoops which are contained in the GHG evaluation. The scoops have been introduced for avoiding the double calculation. In the Scope 1, the direct greenhouse gas emission is being analysed. The scope 1 is being controlled by the company. In the case of stationary combustion, the combustion of propane, fuel oil and natural gas are being counted through the industrial activities. In the case of mobile combustion the combustion of diesel and gasoline occur due to vehicle or mobile transportation. In the case of process emission, due to the manufacturing process, the pollution occurs from the ammonia, steel, iron and cement industry. The Scope 2 indicates the emission from the stream, electricity and other different sources of energy industry. In this study, the scope 3 indicates the consequences which have been occurred due to excessive operations from different sources in an organization. Here the various number of sources have been introduced in the case of analysing the greenhouse gas sources. Employee commuting, third-party distribution, logistics and business travel are included in this sources. The study has also mentioned the emission from the sold products, production of the purchased goods and many more as the sources of greenhouse gas. Depending on these activities the Scope three data is being gathered.
3). Water utility practices ate interconnected with the Greenhouse emission activities (Nair et al., 2014). In the current scenario, the water industry has started optimizing the uses with the mineral energy. This strategy has been adopted by the industry for dealing with the climatic changes as well as the cost and operational challenges. The sanitation and water organizations are emitting a high amount of greenhouse gases, which is affecting the climate. Therefore, this can be said that it has in the case of producing energy by the mineral water the company emits the Greenhouse gas. Therefore, this can be said that the water resource industry has a higher level of impact on the GHG emission. The electronic companies emitted the large amount of CH4, Co2, N2O and other harmful gasses. In this study the Tumpa Bay Water has started maintaining the sustainable changes in the energy management system. It has been identified in this study that the study has also focused on the water supply side. This can be said that the pumping water is the major consumer of energy. Here the untreated pumping water, supplying water and energy producing rate in kilowatts has been highlighted. Therefore, this can be said that the energy which is used due to the water production practices, influences the greenhouse gas emission rate.
4). The impact of the energy industry in the Greenhouse gas emission has been highlighted. In this report, the importance of the energy policy and energy management system have been pointed out. The major issue with this report is here the report has highlighted the only Tumpa Bay water management process. The major strength of this report is here the calculation process of Greenhouse gas emission has been mentioned. In this study that international standard, which is required for improving the energy performance has been highlighted. For improving the efficiency, it has been mentioned that by implementing the effective operation and improving the energy performance the overall energy utilization can be reduced. If the report had focused on a different organization or focus on GHG emission calculation software, this would have been better. On the other hand, here the study has only focused on the water utility process, however, the GHG emission can be increased from other sources too. The study has only mentioned that water production and energy producing process as the important part of GHG emission.
5). In the report, it has been identified that the energy which is produced during the water production practices, has a higher level of impact on the Greenhouse gas emission process. In this study, it has been understood that the rate of GHG emission and its impact on the atmosphere. The electronic organizations also emit CO2, CH4 and N2O and the other NO gasses. These gasses are harmful to the climate. In this study it has been mention that the GHG emission is being calculated on the basis of the Global Warming Potential. CO2 is the predominant particle in Greenhouse gas. The government has taken various initiatives in the case of dealing with the excessive rate of GHG emission in the environment. In this study the initiatives of Tumpa Bay water have been highlighted, this can be said that various initiatives have been taken for reducing the energy consumption in the water production industry. For making the effective solution the study has highlighted the importance of the ISO standard for managing the Greenhouse gas emission rate in the environment. Although the report has mentioned about various calculation method in this study, the reduction of energy consumption rate has not been mentioned in this report.
