Scientists replicate enzyme that captures carbon

Scientists from King's College London have recreated the active site of Acetyl-CoA Synthase, an enzyme involved in capturing carbon from the atmosphere. The research, carried out in collaboration with Imperial College London, ...

Diatom surprise could rewrite the global carbon cycle

When it comes to diatoms that live in the ocean, new research suggests that photosynthesis is not the only strategy for accumulating carbon. Instead, these single-celled plankton are also building biomass by feeding directly ...

How forest fires also have an impact on lakes

The forest fires in Canada during the summer of 2023 were particularly devastating. With the destructive impact on human infrastructure, plumes of smoke covering thousands of square kilometers and millions of tons of CO2 ...

Some landfill 'burps' contain airborne PFAS, study finds

Many municipal landfills "burp" gas from decomposing organic matter rather than letting it build up. And burps from buried waste containing per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) can release these "forever chemicals" ...
