[USA] When whales were at their historic populations, before their numbers were reduced, it seems that whales might have been responsible for removing tens of millions of tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere every year. Continue reading How whales change climate
There are great hopes for the potential of coastal plants and seaweeds to store carbon and help counter the effects of climate change and a new study is backing that potential.
Scientists from Univ. of Technology, Continue reading Study backs seaweed’s carbon capture potential
Every biomass business must have ways to measure success, output and efficiency improvements. But how easy is it to compare those measures across an entire industry? It may be a simple matter of dry weight tonnage and market value, but it can also become vastly Continue reading Matt Carr: Managing What You Measure
Net zero emissions by 2050 makes assumptions about new technologies which may not be realistic. The credibility of Bioenergy & CCS as a climate change mitigation option is unproven. Huge upscaling efforts in Bio-energy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) will be needed to get to net negative emissions by 2050.
There is an elephant in the climate mitigation room. Actually, if we’re honest, what’s in the room is quite Continue reading Will negative emissions technology get us to 2 degrees?
We haven’t heard much news about the algae industry lately, but apparently it’s getting ready for prime time. This crucial industry has the potential to address many of the challenges facing the world today – Continue reading Algae Industry Moves Beyond Research to Commercialization
Students aged 14-16 across ESA member states will initiate their ESA experiments this week which was inspired by the Micro-Ecological Life Support System Alternative programme (MELiSSA). “Food from Spirulina” is a biological experiment which Continue reading Food from Spirulina experiment underway
A scientist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, in collaboration with Western Washington University, has derived jet fuel from an algae that is industrially grown as fish Continue reading Scientist At WHOI Derives Jet Fuel From Algae
LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–OriginOil Inc. (OTC/QB: OOIL), developer of Electro Water Separation™ (EWS), the high-speed, primarily chemical-free process to clean up large quantities of water, announced today the launch of its Algae Division, naming Continue reading OriginOil Launches Algae Division, Names Mael Disa-Vingataramin as President
Microbes in the ocean take up massive amounts of carbon dioxide, contributing to the global carbon cycle and affecting climate change. These microbes are abundant, diverse and critical to the health of ecosystems, but they are very Continue reading New techniques reveal how microbes shape the health and biodiversity of oceans
[Global]This stunning image taken from space by NASA could hold the key to unlocking how to reduce carbon and global temperatures. Continue reading Earth’s thermostat found: ‘Iron dust’ made by global warming then leads to global COOLING
