Panelists will explore how the current paradigm of sustainability has developed over the last three decades.
Best of both worlds or not more than just a good calculation? We are taking a closer look at the debate about plug-in hybrids.
As I close in on my first year at UPS, I’m reflecting on what drew me to join this organization. First, there’s the company’s reputation for integrity — when UPS commits to doing something, we deliver.
Whether driving millions of miles in our alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles, planting 15 million trees or creating more sustainable ways to deliver packages, our commitments make a difference and set an example for others in our industry.
We need to improve the design of buildings to minimise wastage of energy. Lam Khee Poh of the National University of Singapore explains how sophisticated com…
According to the World Meteorological Organization, greenhouse gas concentrations have reached a record high. In the case of carbon dioxide (CO2),the growth in 2020 exceeded the average for the last decade; despite a 5.6% drop in fossil fuel CO2 emissions driven by COVID-19 restrictions. This continued rise in CO2 concentration is directly linked to our massive consumption of fossil fuels. In a study published in the journal Green Energy & Environment, a group of researchers from Renmin University of China propose a new method to capture CO2 using sunlight as the energy source and modified sawdust as the CO2 absorbent. In addition to capturing CO2, their method also avoids using the fossil fuels that would create additional CO2. Importantly, the absorption method they have developed is reversible, so the captured CO2 can be used to generate other products, such as methanol, ethanol and methane.
