Committing to Carbon Capture in the Steel Industry

The 2016 Paris Agreement’s goal of achieving net zero CO2 emissions by 2050 has prompted a series of industries to develop plans to decarbonise, and governments have been incentivising this transition to a sustainable economy through emissions trading schemes and investment in carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) technologies. As one of the top three…

In Defence of Carbon Capture

As we all know, the most important thing that needs to be done to stop climate change is dramatically reduce global greenhouse gas emissions, but that alone will not be enough to limit global warming to 1.5 C as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has requested. In addition to reducing emissions, we also…

What is Decarbonisation and Why is it Important?

What is decarbonisation? Decarbonisation is the process of reducing the amount of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, being released into the atmosphere, decreasing the levels of greenhouse gas emissions produced from burning fossil fuels. So, why is it important? As you may be aware, the 2015 Paris Agreement set a target of limiting global…

Where Does Carbon Capture Fit Into the UK’s Net-Zero by 2050 Strategy?

In 2021 the UK government published their Net-Zero by 2050 Strategy, outlining how the nation will achieve carbon neutrality. While the report’s main commitment centres on ‘ambitious decarbonisation measures across society’, they also make it clear that several sectors, primarily industry, agriculture, and aviation, will have difficulty reducing all of their emissions by 2050 and…

How Much Carbon Dioxide is Released by Deforestation?

First off, what is deforestation? As you may already know, forests store large amounts of carbon. Trees and plants capture CO₂ (Carbon dioxide) from the atmosphere and then it transforms into carbon, which is usually stored in leaves, stems, roots and the soil. So, what happens when trees are cut down? Well, when forests are…

What is a Carbon Footprint?

Well, what is Carbon Footprint? A carbon footprint is a measurement of the amount of carbon dioxide produced by the activities of an individual, company, organisation or community. Furthermore, the concept of carbon footprint also involves the emissions of other greenhouse gases, such as methane, nitrous oxide or chlorofluorocarbons. Electricity usage, oil or natural gas…
