Committee on Climate Change: Major shift in UK land use needed to deliver Net Zero emissions

"The UK has committed to becoming a Net Zero economy by 2050. Meeting that goal requires a transformation in land use across the UK. Government must confront the rapid changes that are now needed, the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) says in its first ever in-depth advice on UK agricultural policies."

New patent: System and Method for Carbon Dioxide Capture and Sequestration

"A method and a system capable of removing carbon dioxide directly from ambient air, and obtaining relatively pure CO2. The method comprises the steps of generating usable and process heat from a primary production process, applying the process heat from said primary process to co-generate substantially saturated steam, alternately repeatedly exposing a sorbent to removal and to capture regeneration system phases, wherein said sorbent is alternately exposed to a flow of ambient air during said removal phase, to sorb, and therefore remove, carbon dioxide from said ambient air, and to a flow of the process steam during the regeneration and capture phase, to remove the sorbed carbon dioxide, thus regenerating such sorbent, and capturing in relatively pure form the removed carbon dioxide."

E4tech: Bioenergy and hydrogen & fuel cells identified as key areas for UK Government innovation support

"Investing in the deployment of early commercial gasification based plants, and building on the UK’s expertise in Miscanthus breeding and use, were identified as areas that the UK government should support. In hydrogen and fuel cells, bringing down the cost of both electrolysers and fuel cells through advanced manufacturing techniques and lower cost materials were identified as focus areas, to enable their widespread use in hydrogen production and transport."
