Regulation of Air Pollution: South Africa

I. IntroductionII. National Environmental Management: Air Quality ActIII. Fuel Emission StandardsIV. Carbon Tax BillSouth Africa’s GHG emissions are among the highest in the world and its absolute carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions rank among the top twenty countries, “with emissions per capita in the region of 10 metric tons per annum.”The 2011 National Climate Change White Paper described this challenge as follows: South Africa has national and international legal obligation to reduce its emissions. The Bill of Rights section of the South African Constitution includes an environment clause, which states that South Africa is party to a number of multinational environmental agreements. These include the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which South Africa ratified in 1997; the Kyoto Protocol, which South Africa ratified in 2002; and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, ratified by South Africa in 2016.In the 2009 Copenhagen Climate Change Conference, South Africa committed to reducing its GHG emissions by 34% below its current levels (see below) by 2020 and 42% below c...

Jul 06, 2020 · 06 July 2020. In an open-access study in the EGU journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, an international team of researchers reports that the greenhouse gas sulfur hexafluoride (SF 6) is rapidly accumulating in the atmosphere, driven by the demand for SF 6 -insulated switchgear in developing countries. Of all the greenhouse gases regulated under the Kyoto Protocol, insulating gas is the most potent, with a global warming potential (GWP) of 23,500 over a 100-year time horizon.
