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.
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.
Researchers have successfully tested an air filtration system that can remove 90% of aerosols from the air in classrooms.
Energy generation from wind and sun is rapidly expanding, says Rossi, CEO of Italy's largest energy company, Enel. Yet the wind turbines that we use are by no means sustainable.
A new pyrolysis process makes it possible to produce hydrogen and carbon from natural gas. Carbon is a by-product of the process. This makes the hydrogen that is produced emission-free.
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.
A researcher at the German Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and his partners have developed "porous liquids" that could replace energy-intensive distillation methods.
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.

Germany is split on the subject of electromobility. On the one hand, “green scientists” are in a hurry to make the transition from combustion to […]
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 […]
Earth Overshoot Day fell on July the 29th this year. On that day, we had used up all the natural resources for this year that […]
In the coming two decades, the “Green Island” is to once more become as green as it once was in the past. 80 percent of […]
Due to the new, additional tax planned by the German government, the issue of CO2 has become number one again in recent days. Heating and […]
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 […]
In the summer, people in Germany generally have only one choice if they don’t want their homes to heat up too much: close all curtains […]
CO2 is the chemical formula for the carbon dioxide molecule consisting of carbon and oxygen, which occurs in addition to nitrogen, oxygen and so-called noble […]
