Sep 17, 1998 02:00 AM

Carbon-dioxide emissions from Japan in the year 2010 will be 14 % higher than 1990 levels, according to a report by the Japanese Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry.
The institute said energy consumption is expected to grow at a rate of 0.6 % per year in 2010, pushing up the primary energy supply to the equivalent of 672 mm kiloliters of oil. Electricity demand is expected to increase by 2 % yearly .
As a result, carbon-dioxide emissions in 2010 will total 328 mm tons, up 14 % from 1990 levels.
The institute's projections are based on the assumption that Japan's economy will grow at a average of 1.6 % per year in real terms. In addition, nuclear-power-generation capacity is set at 70,000 MW.
The Japanese government is currently targeting a 6 % reduction in greenhouse-gas emissions from 1990 levels by 2010.
