CO2

This approach not only binds CO2, but also improves the soil

If 4,000 Norwegian farms and nurseries produced biochar and mixed it with the soil, we could halve CO2 emissions from the agricultural sector. This entirely natural approach also produces more robust and healthy plants.

How are we going to store the problem gas CO2?

CO2 is the great scapegoat of our age. Is there a way to get rid of it by burying it in the ground or beneath the sea bed?

Climate scientists: Plant woodland when we're draining wetlands

Wetlands can best be exploited as woodland if we intend to drain them anyway.

Arctic sea ice helps remove CO2 from the atmosphere

A new study shows that calcium carbonate in the ice absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere.

Danish scientists are turning CO2 into medicine

We should find more ways to reuse CO2, says scientists who just developed a method to turn the greenhouse gas into medicine.

CO2 scrubbing costs less on the continental shelf

Of all the CO2 that is produced in the Nordic countries, the cheapest to deal with is what is produced together with natural gas from offshore gas-fields.

Taking X-rays of CO2

A spongy sandstone deposit can help cool the Earth’s fever.

Finding CO2 leaks with microorganisms

In the future, new DNA technology may enable us to use microorganisms to find petroleum reservoirs, or detect CO2 leaks from undersea storage reservoirs.

Simulating secure CO2 storage

The race is on to develop the most secure solution for storing CO2 in the earth’s crust. A new method studies precisely how this greenhouse gas is bound inside rocks.

Damming bogs can curb climate gases

Farmers can help reduce CO2 emissions by restoring bogs which were previously drained for agriculture.
