The benefits of investing in zero-carbon cities

A new report shows low carbon measures in cities could reduce urban emissions by nearly 90 percent and support 87 million jobs worldwide by 2030.

Reactor turns greenhouse gas into pure liquid fuel

An electrocatalysis reactor built at Rice University, U.S. recycles carbon dioxide to produce pure liquid fuel solutions using electricity. The scientists hope it will become an efficient and profitable way to reuse the greenhouse gas and keep it out of the atmosphere.

Artificial photosynthesis transforms CO2 into liquefiable fuels

Chemists have successfully produced fuels using water, carbon dioxide and visible light through artificial photosynthesis. Green energy technology is now one step closer to using excess carbon dioxide to store solar energy.

New York, U.S. passes sweeping measure to reduce CO2

Big glass-clad buildings, must stop their polluting ways, New York City lawmakers say. The laws apply to nearly all large buildings, but they will have an outsized impact on commercial construction because they have the highest emissions.

Amazon aims to make 50% of its shipments carbon-neutral

Online giant plans to reach half of all shipments with net zero carbon by 2030. The new initiative is called ‘Shipment Zero’.

Artificial Leaves Grab Carbon Dioxide from Air

Researchers have proposed a design solution that could bring artificial leaves out of the lab and into the environment. Their improved leaf would be at least 10 times more efficient than natural leaves at converting carbon dioxide to fuel.

Germany should phase out coal use by 2038

Germany should stop using coal for electricity production by 2038, a government-appointed commission said Saturday, laying out an 80-billion euro roadmap to phase out the polluting fuel.

Scientists turn carbon emissions into usable energy

A recent study has developed a system that produces electricity and hydrogen while eliminating carbon dioxide. This system has shown stability by operating for more than 1,000 hours without damage to electrodes.

Bristol, England, aims for carbon neutrality by 2030

Bristol has certainly pioneered a name for itself as a center for all things green. Now Bristol's city council has declared a climate emergency and promised to target complete carbon neutrality for the city by 2030.
