Biofuels from corn less beneficial than reported: Study

Last Updated: Monday, April 21, 2014, 18:26

Biofuels from corn residue may be less beneficial than previously thought as a study has found using corn crop residue to make ethanol and other biofuels reduces soil carbon and can generate more greenhouse gases than gasoline.

Experts seek use of new carbon trapping techniques

Last Updated: Friday, February 14, 2014, 23:31

With a global push to limit carbon dioxide emissions, energy experts have called for a roadmap to utilise new technologies that help trap emissions from industries.

Last Updated: Wednesday, January 22, 2014, 21:37

EU member states should cut their carbon dioxide emissions, widely blamed for global warming, by 40 per cent by 2030, the European Commission said today.

Carbon dioxide could warm Earth for centuries

Last Updated: Monday, November 25, 2013, 18:32

Even if carbon dioxide emissions came to a sudden halt, the greenhouse gas already present in the Earth`s atmosphere could continue to warm our planet for hundreds of years, a new study has found.

Scientists back `nuclear power` to help slow down global warming

Last Updated: Monday, November 04, 2013, 14:35

Top climate scientists have claimed that the development of safer nuclear power can help in decelerating the effects of global warming by cutting down on fossil fuel pollution.

World set to exceed global warming limit: IEA

New tech needed for curbing CO2 at source

Last Updated: Sunday, February 17, 2013, 14:02

Reducing carbon dioxide emissions alone may not be enough to curb global warming. There is a need to develop technologies that remove large amounts of the gas at the source, say researchers.

Emissions set to raise in India and China: UNEP

Last Updated: Saturday, June 09, 2012, 14:33

Asia-Pacific was expected to contribute approximately 45 per cent of global energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 2030 and an estimated 60 per cent by 2100.

Cutting CO2 levels by 2100 necessary for survival

Last Updated: Monday, August 08, 2011, 17:18

By 2100, the world will have to use every available means to cut down emissions for survival -- just to limit carbon dioxide (CO2) levels to less than 40 percent higher of what they are today, researchers say.

Carbon dioxide emissions up by 29 percent: Report

Last Updated: Saturday, November 21, 2009, 14:52

Carbon dioxide emissions are up by 29 percent since 2000, far beyond the capacity of the global "sinks" to absorb such volumes, says a report.

Current methods for monitoring CO2 emissions inadequate

Last Updated: Saturday, August 01, 2009, 13:10

A new report has determined that the current methods for estimating greenhouse gas emissions have limitations that make it difficult to monitor carbon dioxide emissions and verify an international climate treaty.
