The widespread adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) plays a critical role in the United States' efforts to reduce carbon emissions in its energy system.
Virgin Atlantic is set to mark a significant milestone with its VS100 flight, a world-first transatlantic 100% Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) flight scheduled for 28 November 2023. The flight aims to demonstrate the viability of SAF as a sustainable alternative to conventional jet fuel. By harnessing SAF, industries could significantly reduce their carbon footprint, paving the way for sustainable long-haul travel and setting new environmental standards.
Korea Electrotechnology Research Institute (KERI) has developed a world-class 'eco-friendly insulating gas' that replaces SF6 (sulfur hexafluoride).
Agriculture is one of the hardest human activities to decarbonize; people must eat, but the land-use practices associated with growing crops account for roughly a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions.
