Frame guidelines to prevent pollution from straw burning: NGT

The National Green Tribunal has directed the Centre to hold a meeting of all the states and prepare "composite" guidelines for preventing the pollution caused by straw burning, which allegedly is one of the reasons for the smog in Delhi.

`Effective` second gen biofuels closer to reality

Researchers have made a breakthrough in developing second generation of biofuels; they have found a family of enzymes that can degrade hard-to-digest biomass into its constituent sugars.

Coffee grounds may serve as future energy resource

Researchers have discovered that an ingredient in our old coffee grounds might someday serve as a cheaper and cleaner energy source.

Smoke from burning biomass increases cardiovascular disease risk

A new study has revealed that smoke from burning biomass, such as wood, animal dung and waste from agricultural crops leads to cardiovascular problems, including an increase in artery-clogging plaques, artery thickness and higher blood pressure.
