  • 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 ...

  • Where does bioenergy fit into a low-carbon future?

    Original story at MIT News Biofuels like ethanol and other forms of bioenergy are often seen as a key part of a low-carbon future. But large-scale production of these fuels, which are usually made from either food crops like corn and sugar cane, or from woody plants and grasses, would represent a major shift in ...

  • Capturing CO2 Emissions Needed to Meet Climate Targets

    Technologies that are discussed controversially today may be needed to keep the future risks and costs of climate change in check. Combining the production of energy from fossil fuels and biomass with capturing and storing the CO2 they emit (CCS) can be key to achieving current climate policy objectives such as limiting the rise of the global mean temperature to below 2 degrees Celsius. This is ...

  • 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 ...

  • Halving Global Carbon Emissions by 2040 Within Reach

    Governments, investors and businesses must seize the opportunity to halve global carbon emissions by 2040 while ensuring economic development and energy access for all, but they must act now to accelerate clean electrification, decarbonization beyond power and energy productivity improvement, says the Energy Transitions Commission (ETC). The ETC recently (4/25) launched its "Better energy, ...

  • 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 – ...

  • British Columbia to Trim Greenhouse Gases, Go Carbon Neutral

    VICTORIA, British Columbia, Canada (ENS) - The Liberal government of British Columbia is turning green. In an overarching strategy revealed Tuesday, the government pledged to combat global warming by cutting back on greenhouse gas emissions from industry, government buildings, cars and homes. In the speech from the throne that introduces each new legislative session, the ...

  • Background: Towards a low carbon future: European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (also see article of same date)

    On 22 November, the European Commission presented the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan). Low carbon technologies will play a vital role in reaching our energy and climate change targets. The main goal of the SET-Plan is to accelerate the development and implementation of these technologies. This background note sets out the details of the SET Plan. Its rationale accompanied by ...

  • Geo-engineering and sea-level rise over the 21st century

    Scientific findings by international research group of scientists from England, China and Denmark just published suggest that sea level will likely be 30-70 centimetres higher by 2100 than at the start of the century even if all but the most aggressive geo-engineering schemes are undertaken to mitigate the effects of global warming and greenhouse gas emissions are stringently controlled. Most ...


  • Sustainable corn production supports advanced biofuel feedstocks

    Researchers worldwide are trying to economically convert cellulosic biomass such as corn stover into 'cellulosic ethanol.' But Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists have found that it might be more cost-effective, energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable to use corn stover for generating an energy-rich oil called bio-oil and for making biochar to enrich soils and sequester ...

  • New CCC advice offers no wriggle-room on aviation emissions

    A new report from the Committee on Climate Change, published today, on how to deliver the ambitious climate targets agreed in Paris in 2015 identifies aviation as a ‘hard to treat’ sector and continues to caution against unlimited passenger growth. The Government’s priority, CCC ...
