Study Reveals How Rivers Regulate Global Carbon Cycle
Humans concerned about climate change are working to find ways of capturing excess carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere and sequestering it in the Earth. But Nature has its own methods for the removal and long-term storage of carbon, including the world’s river systems, which transport decaying organic material and eroded rock from land to the ocean While river transport of carbon to the ocean is not on a scale that will bail humans out of our CO2 problem, we don’t actually know…

How Corporate Fleets Can Go Carbon-Negative Now
Many corporate leaders committed to supply chain sustainability are waiting for a full range of electric vehicles to hit the market to achieve zero emissions from their heavy-duty truck fleets. But there’s no need to wait: With a new model natural gas engine now in commercial production, fleets can meet their heaviest-duty needs using carbon-negative renewable natural gas (RNG) in near-zero-emission natural gas trucks.
Researchers explore how a carbon-fixing organelle forms via phase separation
Plants, algae and other photosynthetic organisms remove carbon dioxide from the air, incorporating it into starches in a process known as carbon fixation. In green algae, which contribute up to a third of global carbon fixation, this activity is greatly enhanced by an organelle called the pyrenoid. A new paper by Princeton researcher Martin Jonikas, assistant professor of molecular biology, and colleagues, which appeared online in…

Sponsored Post: How Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage Works
Nature has been storing CO2 underground for millions of years. It's often found with oil and gas. And for decades, Shell and other companies have injected CO2 into reservoirs to boost oil recovery. Some man-made CO2 is captured and used - for example, to put the fizz into soft drinks or to help tomatoes grow. There are three ways to separate CO2 from the other gases Absorbing CO2 Synthesis Gas Filters Burning Fossil Fuels Separation Pipeline Once the CO2 has been separated, it…
