Four ways to turn waste into treasure
Waste is a global challenge. Successfully decreasing it, while enabling circularity, calls for innovative solutions. Thanks to numerous burgeoning technologies, the ability to eliminate waste is accelerating. Turning waste into high-quality products once seemed unattainable. But now it is reality.
Oman will build world’s largest green hydrogen plant
Oman currently relies heavily on fossil fuels. But construction of the world’s largest green hydrogen plant, which will use renewable energy to split water in an electrolyser, will turn this around. The plant should be at full capacity by 2038, offering a carbon emission-free replacement for fossil fuels.
Monitoring the world’s water, through technological innovation
Water quality in rivers, lakes and oceans is suffering the effects of pollution, droughts, flooding, water extraction and more. Responding to this starts with knowing the details. Remote sensing, coupled with use of big data, Artificial Intelligence and other technological innovations can provide them.
5 sustainable farming methods and practices
Traditional agriculture involves many harmful techniques and is one of the leading contributors to global warming. However, sustainability can be achieved by switching to alternative natural practices and technological solutions which preserve essential resources and avoid contamination.
Technology can help achieve crucial 30% ocean protection
A key component for averting climate disaster is successful protection of at least 30% of the world’s oceans. A total area more than 11 times the size of the United States. Securing such a vast area, to monitor both illegal activities and the movements of marine species, requires new cutting-edge technology.
Explore the Circularity Gap Report 2021
If we continue as we are today, greenhouse gas emissions will rise to 65 billion tonnes in 2030. Even if all Paris Agreement pledges are met, this still paves the way to climate catastrophe. However, doubling global circularity from its current 8.6% would drastically improve the situation. And this is possible by 2023.
