  • India’s First Sediment Trap-Based Flux Studies in Southern Ocean

    In order to understand the response of the Southern Ocean as a carbon sink and its response to changing global climate conditions, a long-term flux study called “Southern Ocean Carbon Processes-SOCarP” was conceived at the National Centre For Antarctic and Ocean Research (NCAOR), India, using moored sediment traps. In early 2017, ...

  • Ocean Absorption of Carbon Dioxide More than Makes Up for Methane Emissions from Seafloor Methane Seeps

    The ocean waters near the surface of the Arctic Ocean absorbed 2,000 times more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than the amount of methane that escaped into the atmosphere from the same waters, according to a study by the USGS Gas Hydrates Project and collaborators in Germany and Norway. The study was conducted near Norway’s Svalbard Islands, above several  ...

  • Carbon Dioxide Levels and Safety Considerations in Winemaking

    Although, at first sight, winemaking might appear to be one of the most idyllic of occupations, it is an industry with its own serious safety concerns. The fermentation process that produces the highly desirable end product, whether it be a serious earthy, rich, Cabernet Sauvignon or a sweet, slightly decadent, Moscato, also produces a lot of carbon dioxide. In the realm of 40 times the volume of ...

  • Use a “Carbon Law” to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050

    To bridge the gap between science-based targets focused on cutting greenhouse gases, and national commitments to such efforts, international experts propose in the highly renowned journal ‘Science’ a decadal roadmap strategy for achieving net-zero emissions by mid-century. They base this on a simple “carbon law” of halving anthropogenic carbon-dioxide (CO2) emissions each ...

  • Measures to Reduce Aviation, Shipping Emissions in the Spotlight

    Efforts seeking to reduce emissions from the aviation and shipping sectors got a boost in recent weeks. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) adopted a new emissions standard for aircraft, and the European Commission put forward proposals addressing emissions from both the aviation and shipping sectors. Emissions from the aviation and shipping sectors account for 2% and 2.5% of ...

  • Water and soil muddy carbon budget thinking

    Climate scientists, struggling with the enduring problem of the carbon budget, may have to think again as a result of new research findings. One experiment, in the UK, has shown that the ponds, lakes and standing ...

  • Saharan dust enhances carbon trapping by ocean deserts

    A new study led by the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) reveals that that dust generated by land erosion has large repercussions for oceanic processes and planetary climate. Wind-driven Saharan dust to the remote Atlantic Ocean not only provides phytoplankton with essential nutrients to promote their growth, but the dust particles themselves are ballasting these carbon-rich microscopic plants, ...

  • Hydroxyl Radical Eliminates H2S in Wet Scrubbers & Flue Gases

    In a recent study in Houston, TX, H2S was removed from a natural gas stream containing 2,000 mg/l of H2S and 5% CO2 using JC 9450 ROS. JC 9450 ROS is a new mineral oxychloride compound that generates Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) like hydroxyl radical ions and others ions in a highly soluble form that is easy to use. The study, which simulated operating conditions of a wet scrubber, found that ...

  • Value for money air quality sensors for smart cities

    Smart city projects increasingly seek to include air quality measurements. If city authorities and the public are being asked to act based on air quality readings they must be credible. Whilst cheap sensors may offer easily integrated readings, they offer poor value for money if the information they produce cannot be trusted by the public, smart city project managers and stakeholders. The search ...
