ELECTRIC MOBILITY CONTRIBUTES DECISIVELY TO CLIMATE PROTECTION

ELECTRIC MOBILITY CONTRIBUTES DECISIVELY TO CLIMATE PROTECTION The transportation sector has the capacity to nearly halve its CO2 emissions by 2050 and, hence, to contribute far more than previously thought to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. Realizing this would require further efficiency improvement and, especially, promotion of public transport in cities, alongside with a large-scale shift to electric cars. These are key findings of a study, in which Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) was one of the partners and which is now published in the American journal “Science”.

ENERGY FROM A FOSSIL FUEL WITHOUT CARBON DIOXIDE

ENERGY FROM A FOSSIL FUEL WITHOUT CARBON DIOXIDE The production of energy from natural gas without generating carbon dioxide emissions could fast become a reality, thanks to a novel technology. Researchers have been researching an innovative technique to extract hydrogen from methane in a clean and efficient way. After two years of intensive experiments the proof-of-principle has now been provided. With the experimental reactor running reliably and continuously, the future potential of this technology has become apparent.
