  • Study shows high emissions from growing biodiesel from palm oil

    Biofuels produced from palm oil grown in tropical peatlands are a significant source of greenhouse gases. This is the finding of a new study done for the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) which, if taken on board by the EU, would disqualify biofuels from palm oil sources from being counted towards the EU’s renewable fuels target. The research, ...

  • The global warming potential of wheat

    Nitrous oxide concentrations in the earth’s atmosphere have increased since the industrial revolution. This is of concern as nitrous oxide contributes to global warming and the destruction of the ozone layer. It has 310 times the global warming potential of carbon dioxide and a lifespan of 120 years. Emissions from agricultural soils are considered to account for 70 to 80 percent of the increase. ...

  • Biofuels from tree seeds

    Tree seeds, rather than biomass or fuel crop plants, could represent an abundant source of renewable energy, according to research published in the International Journal of Automotive Technology and Management. The study suggests that seeds from the Indian mahua and sal trees have almost as good a thermal efficiency as biodiesel but would produce lower emissions of carbon monoxide, waste ...
