With the introduction of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, it is obvious that we have a clear need for standards to allow for the comparability of ocean observations.
Ocean Decade – Regional Planning Workshop for Northern/Central Indian Ocean countries and ROPME sea area
A Regional Planning Workshop for Northern/Central Indian Ocean countries and ROPME sea area was conducted at the National Institute of Ocean Technology, Chennai.
UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable development – Objectives and Planning (Part 1/2)
Is there a way to reverse ocean health decline and continue to rely on it ? The coming Ocean Decade is an opportunity to seek a positive answer to this question.
New catalyst paves way for carbon neutral fuel
Australian scientists have paved the way for carbon neutral fuel with the development of a new efficient catalyst that converts carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air into synthetic natural gas in a ‘clean’ process using solar energy.
Sea Ice as a Way of Life
Hunters in the Belcher Islands keep a close eye on changing sea ice.
Dutch toxic landfill site is now capturing and storing carbon
Precise carbon measurements indicate that peat is already being formed at the Volgermeerpolder near Amsterdam (NL), a toxic waste landfill site that was capped with foil with an artificial wetland on top.
Cold conversion of food waste into renewable energy and fertilizer
Researchers from Concordia’s Department of Building, Civil and Environmental Engineering (BCEE) in collaboration with Bio-Terre Systems Inc. are taking the fight against global warming to colder climes.
Cryogenic storage offers hope for renewable energy
The world’s largest cold energy storage plant, which can act like a giant battery for renewable energy, is being commissioned at a site near Manchester.
Poverty, Drought and Felled Trees Imperil Malawi Water Supply
The practice of depleting the forest for precious fuel during hard times has been taking a toll at taps in the capital city, Lilongwe.
Economically viable US renewable generation
Analysts are providing, for the first time, a method for measuring the economic potential of renewable energy across the United States. A study applying this new method found that renewable energy generation is economically viable in many parts of the United States largely due to rapidly declining technology costs.
