Chemical engineers at Arlanxeo in the Dutch city of Geleen have proven that the rubber production based on sugar cane has a much lower CO2 footprint than that of petroleum-based rubber.
Municipalities can use a tool to determine whether or not new buildings in certain urban areas should be constructed using timber.
By the year 2050, plastic production will account for 15 to 20% of CO2 emissions, according to figures from EIT Climate KIC, a European institution […]
”Your sneak preview of the future” is the slogan of Innovation Origins, and that’s just what we will highlight with our Start-up of the Week […]
As part of the "ICE2025+" project, researchers from four different German universities have studied to what extent the efficiency of internal combustion engines can be improved in hybrid drives.
The Synfuel project combines several technologies to make green fuel for the transport sector. Among other things, they make use of biomass and wind energy.
The Finnish company Betolan has discovered a formula to replace cement, which is a major CO2 pollutant. However, the recipe remains the chef's secret.
The Dutch student team RenewCO2 at TU/e is working on a technique that converts CO2 into formic acid. Using just electricity and water, the greenhouse gas is converted into a CO2-neutral chemical.
Proteins from CO2, hydrogen and micro-organisms as a basis for sustainable animal feed - to start with
Scientists at the Ferman Fraunhofer IOSB and their partners are developing a complex IT ecosystem that aims to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the future.
An international team of scientists from the University of Vienna is continuing research into vegan and CO2-neutral leather made from fungi in a biologically and environmentally friendly way.
British researchers have developed a new system that converts sunlight, carbon dioxide and water into a carbon-neutral fuel - without the need for additional components or electricity.
Innovation Origins rewarded Carbyon with a Gerard & Anton Award in July. Carbyon's machinery filters CO2 from the air and supplies it in a purified form to make kerosene for aircraft.
To stop climate change and prevent the carbon dioxide content of the air from rising any further, technological processes are available that cut CO2 from […]
The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany is building a globally unique experimental plant that converts CO2 (carbon dioxide) from the atmospheric air into […]
Many of you know that I regularly debunk the claim that diesel vehicles emit less CO2 than electric vehicles. But one thing that I hadn’t […]
Simply reducing CO2 emissions is probably not enough to meet the Paris climate targets. The amount of CO2 that’s already in the air must also […]
Dutch European Commissioner Frans Timmermans (who will be responsible for climate issues) wants to introduce a CO2 tax at the outer border of the European […]
The best way to reduce CO2 emissions is to make the polluting industries pay at least four times as much for the quantity of these […]
