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
Municipalities can use a tool to determine whether or not new buildings in certain urban areas should be constructed using timber.
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.
Every other week we take a look with sustainibility expert and Innovation Origins columnist Auke Hoekstra at what caught his eye where the preservation of our planet is concerned.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
The term ‘e-coli bacteria’ is often associated with poor food hygiene and nasty diseases. The pathogenic bacterial strain is undoubtedly responsible for the latter. On […]
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 […]
”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 […]
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 […]
Human beings spend up to 90% of our lives indoors. Having high concentration of CO2 indoors is not a very difficult thing to achieve, as […]
With 34 enormous wind turbines on and around the Krammersluizen, Windpark Krammer in Bruinisse is now good for about 102 megawatts of green electricity per […]
An international team of researchers, including scientists from the Karlsruher Institute of Technology (KIT), has turned our previous assumptions on the CO2 uptake of forests […]
This is a guest contribution by Jan van der Meer, alderman for sustainability in Eindhoven. The last few weeks have seen a heated debate on […]
