2022 Global Gas Flaring Tracker Report: 144 billion m³ of gas flared needlessly in 2021

26.06.2022

In its latest report, the World Bank argues that progress in reducing harmful gas flaring has stalled over the past decade, which could lead to a failure in meeting the much needed targets for carbon dioxide emissions and the energy transition. One of the main reasons leading to the stagnation is the increase in...

Converting CO2 and Methane to Desired Products

20.03.2022

Ethane and particularly CO2 are gases which have long been recognised for their potential value as sustainable sources of energy. However, the processes to convert them into the desired products can be quite challenging to control. This is mainly due to the potentially unpredictable course of the reaction. Therefore, a...

Direct Conversion of Methane to Hydrogen by Pyrolysis: Status and Prospects

17.02.2022

Introduction Increasing the use of hydrogen in modern energy is a prerequisite for its transition towards low-carbon forms of energy production and consumption. Hydrogen is unique primarily because it can be used both as an environmentally friendly fuel and as a medium for energy storage. However, the global hydrogen...

Making Carbon Fibres More Sustainable

14.02.2022

Carbon fibre is a very versatile material which can be used for many different applications. The material is light, but compact at the same time making it a very suitable material for passenger cars and even racing cars. Its only drawback is that it is very expensive, energy intensive to produce and also releases a lot of CO2...

The latest decisions taken on COP-26, including agreements on coal, methane, and limitations on the utilization of fossil fuels make up an important stage in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. However, it will take several decades, numerous organizational arrangements, and immense financial resources for a complete...

COP-26. Targets for the energy sector

30.12.2021

The Climate Change Conference of the Parties in Glasgow, which ended in mid-November, was a significant milestone in the fight against global warming. Now, nearly two months after the end of the summit, after it has been displaced in the media by other topics, it is time to take a closer look at the strengths and the...

Eurostat: International trade in hybrid and electric cars

21.12.2021

Challenges associated with climate change stimulate the development of environmentally-friendly means of transport. The obvious importance of this development is underlined by the huge amount of direct CO2 emissions caused by fuel combustion in car engines which, according to IEA, account for almost 25%, with passenger cars in...
