High rainfall afforded resilience to tropical rainforests around 50 million years ago

New Delhi, November 22, 2023: High rainfall helped the survival of equatorial rainforests at a time when Earth was globally warm and atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration was a whopping more than 1000 ppmv, around 50 million years ago. The mechanism in which biota survives adverse conditions is still poorly known. The existing palaeoclimate data of […]

New technology for converting CO2 to CO holds potential for carbon capture and energy saving in the steel sector

New Delhi, November 14, 2023: A new energy-efficient carbon dioxide capture technology that converts carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide under electro catalytic conditions under ambient temperatures in the presence of water has been developed with potential for application in the steel sector. In efforts to support India’s goal for net-zero emissions by 2070, the DST-supported […]

Exploring ways of enhancing ocean alkalinity for removing atmospheric carbon dioxide

New Delhi, November 5, 2021: Arvind Singh, Associate Professor at the Physical Research Laboratory, Ahmedabad, a Swarnajayanti fellow of 2020-21, is examining the role of enhancing ocean alkalinity for removing atmospheric carbon dioxide to tackle global climate change problems. Increasing emission of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere due to anthropogenic and other processes is a […]

New non-toxic organic photocatalyst can efficiently capture CO2 and convert it into methane

New Delhi, October 31, 2021: Indian Scientists have designed a cost-effective metal-free catalyst to convert carbon dioxide or CO2 to methane by absorption of visible light. Ongoing research is making a significant effort to reduce CO2 into value-added products, methane (CH4) could be one of the value-added products with significant uses as the cleanest burning […]
