According to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) the rate of increase of CO2 recorded in earth's atmosphere in 2016 was up 50 % on that of last ten-year average.
Urban air pollution in the U.S. has been decreasing near continuously since the 1970s.
The process of extracting natural gas from the earth or transporting it through pipelines can release methane into the atmosphere. Methane, the primary component of natural gas, is a greenhouse gas with a warming potential ...
To make natural gas and biogas suitable for use, the methane has to be separated from the CO2. This involves the use of membranes, filters that stop the methane and allow the CO2 to pass through. Researchers at KU Leuven ...
Methane gas, a vast natural resource, is often disposed of through burning, but new research by scientists at MIT could make it easier to capture this gas for use as fuel or a chemical feedstock.
Scientists have shown that ocean clams and worms are releasing a significant amount of potentially harmful greenhouse gas into the atmosphere.
Methane produced by manure and food waste in landfills doesn't have to go to waste. Using anaerobic digesters, the gas can be harnessed for energy.
Methane is the second most powerful greenhouse gas and concentrations are rising in the atmosphere. Because of its potency and quick decay in the atmosphere, countries have recognised that reduction of methane emissions are ...
In a drying time, Mars may have been kept warm enough for liquid water to remain stable on the surface thanks to explosive bursts of methane gas, a new study finds.
The molten surface of a sodium-based material could assist the direct conversion of methane to useful building blocks.
