  • Fair Miles. Recharting the food miles map

    Today’s food is well travelled. A pack of green beans in a Northern supermarket may have journeyed 6000 miles, or 60. But while food miles loom large in our carbon-aware times, transporting it counts for less than you might think. And there is a far bigger picture. Food is more than a plateful of emissions. It’s a social, political and economic ...

  • Alternative Solvents for Green Chemistry

    Everyone is becoming more environmentally conscious and therefore, chemical processes are being developed with their environmental burden in mind.
