Strategies to Reduce the Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Mobile Sources on the Orizaba Valley, México

Strategies to Reduce the Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Mobile Sources on the Orizaba Valley, México

The Orizaba Valley is a Mexican region, located at the geographic center of Veracruz State, having
Orizaba City as the main demographic population surrounded by other municipalities, becoming the
fourth metropolitan populated area of Veracruz State. This region has the third position on economic,
historic and cultural relevance at Veracruz State, just after the Veracruz Port and Xalapa City. It was
one of the main places with a vast economic growing during the Viceroyalty of the New Spain, being
an obligatory passing route and resting place between Veracruz Port and Mexico City.
In this project we estimate the magnitude of the Greenhouse Gas emissions coming from mobile
sources at the Orizaba Valley. It includes the urban region of the municipalities of Ixtaczoquitlan,
Orizaba, Río Blanco, Camerino de Mendoza and Nogales. The collected data was processed
according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change methodology and it was possible to
make the following projections: 1) One baseline scenario and 2) Three scenarios under hypothetical
mitigation strategies that promise to achieve a reduction of GHG emission of 30% from the year 2020
to 2050. Beyond this, also there is a significant reduction in fossil fuels consumption due to the
efficient use of energy. All projections were made by using the Long-range Energy Alternatives
Planning system software.
In addition of the achievement on the GHG emissions reduction goal, it is possible to glimpse an
economic recovery, if and only if, the decision makers of the governments decide to participate in the
international trade of carbon market.
