Like graphite, diamond is a special form of carbon. Its cubic crystal structure and its strong chemical bonds give it its unique hardness. For thousands of years it has been in demand as both a tool and a beauty thing. It was only in the 1950s that it became possible to artificially manufacture diamonds. Most […]
The HTA has teamed up with the sustainability certification of Planet Mark as the first step in the implementation of its sustainability roadmap.
Investors betting on the conservation and reforestation of tropical forests to solve global warming by storing carbon in wood face great uncertainties as the science behind predicting carbon stocks is still shaky. Even the best Earth system models cannot predict how different the carbon stored by tropical forests will be from place to place. The […]
New e-fuel technologies often use the reverse water gas shift reaction (RWGS) to convert atmospheric CO2 Although this reaction is efficient, it requires high temperatures and complex gas separation for high performance. For the first time in the world, scientists from Japan have now demonstrated record-high CO2 Conversion rates at relatively low temperatures in a […]
The "Development of a Net Zero Farm" project aims to promote projects that develop innovative technologies, systems and / or process solutions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions in a commercial agricultural environment.
Carbon Gold, the supplier of biochar to gardeners and professional plant growers, has exceeded its crowdfunding target of £ 200,000 for a total of £ 722,468.
The forestry company Tilhill has organized an online seminar to discuss the nature-based solutions of its new trading platform CarbonStore for forest and bog carbon units.
To stop biodiversity loss, Canada recently committed to protecting 30% of its land and ocean by 2030. However, it is complicated to make conservation decisions about where to locate new protected areas. It depends on data on both biodiversity and a range of benefits (e.g., freshwater, climate regulation, recreation) that humans receive from nature. Surprisingly, […]
A fast, green and one-step method for producing porous carbon spheres, which are a vital component for carbon capture technology and for new ways of storing renewable energy, has been developed by Swansea University researchers. The method produces spheres that have good capacity for carbon capture, and it works effectively at a large scale. Carbon […]
