Cows Wearing Backpacks – A Methane Solution

The National Institute of Agricultural Technology (INTA) has created a backpack to mitigate climate change by capturing methane emissions from cows. The backpack would be worn on the cow and captures methane by inserting a tube into the cow’s rumen, or a digestive organ where…

Scientists discover materials that capture methane

Methane is a potent greenhouse gas that is released in the atmosphere by various means, including cow flatulence. Scientists say that they have discovered a new material able to capture and concentrate methane. So far, the ability to capture methane has been very difficult because…

Methane Capture: Options for Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction

Research on climate change has identified a wide array of sources that emit greenhouse gases (GHGs). Among the six gases that have generally been the primary focus of concern, methane is the second-most abundant, accounting for approximately 8% of total U.S. GHG emissions in 2008.…

Speeding the Search for Better Methane Capture

Like the Roman god Janus, methane presents Earth’s atmosphere with two situational faces. As the main component of natural gas, methane when burned as a fuel produces less carbon dioxide than the burning of oil or coal, which makes it a plus for global climate…

Scientists Propose a Wild Idea For Cleaning The Atmosphere, And It Would Mean More CO2

The window for climate action is closing before our very eyes, and as emissions continue to rise, researchers at Stanford are asking us to consider the lesser of two evils. In a new commentary, the authors propose a wild idea that would intentionally release more…

New methane capture method could reduce global warming by one-sixth

Emerging tech to suck CO2 from the air is getting lots of buzz and cash, but a new paper in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Sustainability proposes a method for atmospheric capture of methane to alleviate warming and buy more time to tackle the bigger CO2…

Pour sauver le climat, le patron de Veolia appelle à limiter d’abord les émissions de méthane

Le contrôle du réchauffement climatique passe par la diminution des émissions de gaz à effet de serre de la planète. Pour le PDG de Veolia, la priorité devrait être de capturer et valoriser le méthane. [Lire plus]

Driving CO2 emissions to zero (and beyond) with carbon capture, use, and storage

Any pathway to mitigate climate change requires the rapid reduction of CO2 emissions and negative-emissions technologies to cut atmospheric concentrations. Technology and regulation will be the key. [Lire plus]
