  • Reducing Black Carbon Can Save Lives and Help Combat Climate Change

    Black carbon causes millions of deaths every year and contributes to the warming of the planet. In the atmosphere it appears as air pollution, with emissions arising mainly from the combustion of diesel fuel and biofuels, coal-fired power stations, biomass cook stoves, brick kilns and vegetation burning in open fields. The importance of reducing emissions of black carbon and other ...

  • A `black magic` CO2 fix

    Biochar is made by heating woody waste at high temperatures without oxygen, a process that also produces biogas and usable ‘bio-oil’, renewable energy sources. The stable black carbon-rich solid left after these are captured can remain in soil for up to 5000 years. Used in agriculture, it could increase crop production and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and nitrous ...
