The increase in CO₂ emissions goes hand in hand with the increase in microbial biomass
Biodegradable microplastic particles in soils can lead to an increased rise in CO₂ emissions to the Earth's atmosphere. This is shown by an interdisciplinary study published in "Applied Soil Ecology" by the Collaborative Research Centre 1357 "Microplastics" at the University of Bayreuth. In this ...
Researchers have identified the approaches with the highest potential for carbon removal in Germany
Carbon dioxide can be removed from the atmosphere by natural or technical means. Natural sinks such as peatlands can be restored, and innovative technologies already exist to extract carbon from the air. Researchers from the Helmholtz Climate Initiative's Net Zero 2050 Cluster have identified the ...
One-stop solution from specialized engineering services, carbon capture, project financing to storage and utilization
BASF and GS Engineering and Construction (GS E&C) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on a strategic partnership to jointly develop modular solutions for Carbon Capture facilities. The partners want to develop individual package solutions from standardized elements for customers from all ...
TfS approach for chemical industry value chains supported by BASF
As part of the joint initiative “Together for Sustainability” (TfS), 37 companies from the chemical industry, including BASF, have agreed on a global guideline for calculating product carbon footprints (PCFs). Product carbon footprints are an important information for steering emissions in the ...
Researchers found a new way to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by wrapping copper nanocubes with an organic layer, solving instability and selectivity problems with copper nanocubes in catalysis, and improving how this electrocatalyst converts CO2 into organic molecules. As the need to ...
Calls on sector to change, lead way to enable a sustainable global economy
A new report sends a dire warning to the chemical industry, which it says is on track for a future global warming scenario with catastrophic consequences, and sets out tangible, credible pathways for the sector to become an enabler of a sustainable global economy by 2050, while overseeing ...
Technology has the potential to reduce CO2 emissions by at least 90% compared to conventional steam crackers
BASF, SABIC and Linde have started construction of the world’s first demonstration plant for large-scale electrically heated steam cracker furnaces. By using electricity from renewable sources instead of natural gas, the new technology has the potential to reduce CO2 emissions of one of the most ...
Comprehensive climate strategy with the goal of climate neutrality by 2028
The globally positioned Eppendorf Group, a life science specialist, is picking up speed when it comes to climate protection. The company is reducing its CO2 emissions and will be climate-neutral by 2028 – much earlier than specified by the EU. To enable this, Eppendorf has developed a ...
Expected reduction in CO₂ emissions of up to 390,000 metric tons annually
BASF and MAN Energy Solutions have entered into a strategic partnership to pursue the construction of an industrial-scale heat pump at the BASF site in Ludwigshafen. This project is intended to make an important contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, establishing the use of low-CO2 ...
25 percent reduction of CO2 emissions by 2030 compared with 2018 and net zero by 20501 targeted
One year after its initial announcement, BASF has reaffirmed its ambitious climate targets. In an update for investors and financial analysts on its transformation roadmap BASF confirmed that by 2030 it aims to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent compared with 2018 and is ...
