Using CO2 “green” products

Cutting emissions: there is another way

Biotechnologie_Emission_teaser

The energy revolution has also brought to light the fact that carbon dioxide is only a bad thing when it is released into the air. If, however, CO2 is captured and stored, it could make a significant contribution to reducing CO2 and generating “green” products. Carbon dioxide is the key ingredient in the power-to-gas concept, for example. This technology involves storing renewable energy in the form of synthetic methane gas to provide a combined solution that both reduces CO2 and allows problematic green power surpluses to be stored. What’s more, CO2 forms part of the process for producing plastics which are free of petroleum. Continue reading

Reducing dust emissions

Air thickness in India

Feinstaub_Indien_teaser

Aerosols, suspended dust, and fine particulates are three important things when it comes to pollution control and emission reduction. The smaller the dust particles, the worse the effect on health. In India, there’s a lot of dust. This is why the country took the decision to significantly reduce these emission levels with as little impact on the cost to the national economy as possible. Continue reading
