  • FTIR gas analyser supports carbon capture research

    The development of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies relies on the accurate measurement of carbon dioxide (CO2) in addition to a wide array of other gases because it is vitally important that the process does not impact upon the emissions of other greenhouse gases and potential pollutants. An advanced FTIR multiparameter gas analyser from Gasmet Technologies is therefore being ...

  • Written ministerial statement on the carbon plan

    The Government is today publishing the Carbon Plan, setting out the Government’s long-term plans to meet its carbon targets, including the fourth carbon budget set earlier this year. The plan shows how doing so will set us on a plausible pathway to our 2050 target to reduce emissions by at least 80% from 1990 levels. The plan will help drive new high-value economic sectors and save billions ...

  • Scientists publish road map for low carbon future

    The UK lacks a coherent energy system that can effectively meet future energy needs while preventing rapid climate change, according to leading scientists.  A report, published today, of a discussion meeting held at the Royal Society calls for a new vision for energy generation that is based on the long term replacement of fossil fuels through the development and deployment of new technologies. ...

  • Investing in the future: EC calls for additional EUR 50bn in low carbon technologies

    European Commission called public authorities, business, and researchers to join efforts in order to develop by 2020 the necessary technologies to address climate change, secure EU energy supply and ensure the competitiveness of our economies. In a proposal on 'Investing in the development of low-carbon energy technologies', the Commission estimates that an additional investment of €50 billion in ...

  • South Korea on course to have the world’s highest carbon prices

    In a little over 18 months, South Korea will launch a scheme that will cap around 70% of its greenhouse gas emissions. A White Paper published today by research firm Bloomberg New Energy Finance, in cooperation with Ernst & Young, concludes that the design is the most ambitious yet proposed anywhere, and could result in the Korean carbon price reaching the penalty level of $90/tCO2 – ...
