Industrial Response to Climate Change
"Industrial Response to Climate Change" is an Editorial Series from AZoCleantech.com featuring a selection of articles that provide a deeper look into how the Clean Technology sector is responding to the ongoing climate change crisis.
Each article will explore an advancement or innovation, explaining the relationship between this technology and issues highlighted in the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change 2018 and 2021 reports. Key insights surrounding topics will be discussed, including market relevance, research, limitations, and future directions.
In 2018, a special report was released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), focusing on the 1.5 ºC global temperature increase. The report offered an in-depth look at the consequences of this change on the climate system and emphasized the necessity to design adaptive solutions.
As our planet's oceans become increasingly vulnerable to the impacts of global warming, sustainable aquaculture is proposed as a key avenue to securing the future health of our marine ecosystems.
Recent research has highlighted the previously overlooked role of sea kelp as a so-called "blue carbon" carbon capture process.
The latest IPCC report makes stark warnings about rising sea levels. The threat of saltwater intrusion poses significant risks to coastal infrastructure worldwide, and investment must be made to avoid metal and concrete corrosion.
Current climate models predict that between 2030 and 2052, global surface temperatures will likely rise by 1.5 °C if human activities continue at their current pace. Here, the technologies addressing global warming, Direct Air Carbon Capture (DACCS) and Bioenergy Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS), are discussed.
Solar radiation management (SRM) sparks perhaps the greatest controversy of all proposed climate change prevention strategies. This article explores its potential to be the future of fighting climate change.
AZoCleantech has curated a collection of articles that provide a deeper look into how the Clean Technology sector is responding to the ongoing climate change crisis set out in the IPCC's 2018 Summary for Policymakers and 2021 Physical Science Basis.
