  • Methane concentration in the atmosphere has increased rapidly in 10 years

    The amount of methane in the atmosphere has increased rapidly over the last ten years. The increase in methane emissions makes it difficult for companies to curb climate change. You see, methane warms the planet about 28 times as much as the equivalent amount of carbon dioxide. So far, methane’s share of global greenhouse gas emissions is about 16 percent, but it could rise. About 70% of ...

  • Household compost as good for soil as conventional fertilisers, say EU researchers

    Since 2005, conventional disposal of organic waste has been prohibited in Sweden. Instead, this waste is incinerated or separated at source, processed (composted or anaerobically digested) and recycled as fertiliser on crop land. A new study has investigated the use of organic waste from different sources as a fertiliser and found that residue from biogas production is an effective fertiliser. ...
