COVID-19 crisis affects the entire Earth System in unprecedented ways and reveals systemic risks in our highly interconnected world
COVID-19 immediately affects the health, economy and social well-being in our personal lives. Yet, the consequences on the entire Earth System, in particular the ones emerging from the widespread sheltering and lock-down measures, may be much more far-fetching and long-lasting. This has been ...
Greenhouse gas emissions from soil
Thanks to a newly developed laser spectrometer, Empa researchers can for the first time show which processes in grassland lead to nitrous oxide emissions. The aim is to reduce emissions of this potent greenhouse gas by gaining a better understanding of the processes taking place in the soil. ...
Industrial plants can be precisely located to within two kilometers
Nitrogen oxides (NO and NO2) are major contributors to air pollution. In order to accurately predict air quality and develop strategies to reduce pollution, precise emission data are needed. Daily satellite measurements can help to derive such data. The measuring instrument observes a specific ...
On behalf of the EU Commission, Fraunhofer ISI explored what contribution individual technologies can make to decarbonizing industry and how to support them. The study shows that it is possible to cut emissions by 95% by 2050. However, this requires innovative carbon-neutral technologies and ...
Study analyzes energy requirements for negative emissions technologies
Using special filters to remove the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) directly from the air could be the best way to generate so-called negative emissions, at the scale of many billions of tons of CO2 per year throughout the world by 2050. “Direct Air Capture” has many characteristics that can ...
Carbon Catalogue, breaks down the carbon footprint of a product during its entire life cycle
A Columbia researcher affiliated with the Data Science Institute has created a data-visualization tool that shows the carbon footprints of hundreds of consumer products. The tool makes it easy for everyone to explore the products' carbon-emission levels and the various strategies that companies ...
Women consume less electricity
The higher the income of individuals living in Switzerland the higher their greenhouse gas emissions. But to what extent do differences in income actually have an effect on emissions, and to what extent do household emissions differ? The main differences were found in the areas of mobility and ...
Yokogawa Electric Corporation announces that it has been included in the 2019 Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World Index (Global 100). This is Yokogawa’s first time on the Global 100, one of the world's leading sustainability indices. Now in its 15th year, the 2019 Global 100 was ...
Researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology have designed a CO2 reduction method based only on commonly occurring elements. Achieving a 57% overall quantum yield of CO2 reduction products, it is the highest performing system of its kind reported to date, raising prospects for cost-effective ...
Following the completion of a first series of engine testing and significant progresses of the isobutene bioproduction process, the two companies have agreed to start a new program. The first focus will be the regulatory landscape associated with the conversion of various non-food residue ...
