Global agriculture is currently a major contributor of carbon emissions. However, there are crops and practices that can reverse that trend, actively sequestering carbon while producing food and other essential human needs. The first component of this strategy is the use of perennial crops, like trees and other long-lived plants ... keep reading
Adding charcoal to land used to grow bioenergy crops can greatly increase their overall benefit in helping cut our greenhouse-gas emissions, scientists have shown. Applying so-called 'biochar' before planting energy crops can cut soil greenhouse-gas emissions by around a third. Soils are among the biggest sources of UK emissions, and ... keep reading
The EU prides itself to have established, in 2011, the European Union’s Emissions Trading System (ETS). The EU ETS is claimed to be the cornerstone of the European Union’s policy to combat climate change and a primary tool for reducing industrial greenhouse gas emissions cost-effectively. Involving 31 countries ... keep reading

Carbon dioxide is the predominant “greenhouse gas ... keep reading
A low-cost new material that could lead to innovative technologies to tackle global warming has been discovered by scientists at The University of Nottingham. The porous material, named NOTT-300, has the potential to reduce fossil fuel emissions through the cheaper and more efficient capture of polluting gases such as carbon ... keep reading
