Walmart asked 5,900 suppliers to come up with immediate, significant, and sustained action with science-based, concrete goals and practical projects focused on the most relevant sources of emissions in value chains, such as energy use or agricultural practices.
A Food System Economics Commission report shows that food waste is projected to surge by 16% by 2050 if existing trends persist and negative environmental impacts could cost up to $3 trillion a year.
Boiler systems are needed across a variety of industries, from the built environment to chemical manufacturing, and they make up about half of process heat used in industry — the fossil fuel-based systems currently cause about 2.25 gigatons of carbon emissions each year.
The plant at the Republic Services Brickyard Landfill in Danville, Illinois, is expected to reduce about 27,000 tons of carbon emissions annually.
Research compiled by the Environmental Health Trust indicates that radio frequencies, or electromagnetic radiation from 4G and 5G networks, appears to be behind in terms of addressing its contribution to biodiversity loss among other environmental and human impacts.
The approach shown from recent research is the valorization of whey, a by-product of the dairy industry, into AF aerogels, poised for the selective recovery of precious metals from electronic waste.
A study done by the University of Michigan unveils a promising avenue for bolstering the endurance of cost-efficient solar cells by integrating bulky “defect pacifying” molecules into perovskites that can substantially enhance their stability and longevity.
“Offshore wind can play a major role in decarbonizing the U.S. electric grid, and meeting its potential will require skilled workers to propel us forward,” says the DOE’s Jeff Marootian.
The funds will support testing of the company’s Joule Hive thermal battery, which has successfully demonstrated the ability to convert electricity to 1,800 degrees Celsius, meeting the needs of the highest temperature industrial applications, such as producing steel, cement, and glass.
