  • Health and climate benefits by control of methane and black carbon

    Measures to control methane and black carbon (soot) emissions could improve air quality and public health, in addition to slowing the rate of climate change, according to recent research. By 2030, the reduced pollution could prevent between 700,000 and 4.7 million premature deaths each year, with 80% of the benefits occurring in Asia. Previous studies have linked the formation of ozone at ground ...

  • 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 ...
