Centuries of thermal sea-level rise due to anthropogenic emissions of short-lived greenhouse gases [Sustainability Science]

24-Jan-2017 | Kirsten Zickfeld; Susan Solomon; Daniel M. Gilford, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences current issue, 2017

Mitigation of anthropogenic greenhouse gases with short lifetimes (order of a year to decades) can contribute to limiting warming, but less attention has been paid to their impacts on longer-term sea-level rise. We show that short-lived greenhouse gases contribute to sea-level rise through ...


Climate change: Sea-level rise for centuries to come

19-Jan-2017 | Nature, 2017

Climate change: Sea-level rise for centuries to come Nature 541, 7637 (2017). doi:10.1038/541262d Atmospheric methane and other short-lived greenhouse gases are set to keep the global sea level rising for several centuries — even after any ...


[Policy Forum] The irreversible momentum of clean energy

13-Jan-2017 | Barack Obama, Science , 2017

The release of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases (GHGs) due to human activity is increasing global average surface air temperatures, disrupting weather patterns, and acidifying the ocean (1). Left unchecked, the continued growth of GHG emissions could cause global average ...


Energies, Vol. 9, Pages 1086: Systematic Assessment of Carbon Emissions from Renewable Energy Access to Improve Rural Livelihoods

19-Dec-2016 | Cherni, Judith A.; Olalde Font, Raúl ; Serrano, Lucía ; Henao, Felipe ; Urbina, Antonio, Energies, 2016

One way of increasing access to electricity for impoverished unconnected areas without adding significant amounts of CO2 to the atmosphere is by promoting renewable energy technologies. However, decision-makers rarely, if ever, take into account the level of in-built energy requirements and ...


Life cycle analysis of corn‐stover‐derived polymer‐grade l‐lactic acid and ethyl lactate: greenhouse gas emissions and fossil energy consumption

15-Dec-2016 | Felix K. Adom, Jennifer B. Dunn, Biofuels, Bioproducts and Biorefining, 2016

Abstract Co‐production of high‐value chemicals with biofuels could improve the economic viability of biorefineries while reducing biofuel life‐cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and fossil energy consumption (FEC). Polymer‐grade lactic acid (PGLA) is a high‐potential bioproduct currently ...


[Perspective] Ammonia activation at a metal

11-Nov-2016 | Jessica Hoover, Science , 2016

Although ammonia (NH3) is made on a vast scale for use in fertilizers, its use as a chemical feedstock or as an energy carrier is much more limited. Many reactions that occur easily with its substitution products (amines) are sluggish for NH3, in part because of the difficulty of activating the ...


[Review] The broad footprint of climate change from genes to biomes to people

11-Nov-2016 | Brett R. Scheffers; Luc De Meester; Tom C. L. Bridge; Ary A. Hoffmann; John M. Pandolfi; Richard T. Corlett; Stuart ..., Science , 2016

Most ecological processes now show responses to anthropogenic climate change. In terrestrial, freshwater, and marine ecosystems, species are changing genetically, physiologically, morphologically, and phenologically and are shifting their distributions, which affects food webs and results in new ...


Energies, Vol. 9, Pages 922: Biomass Residues to Renewable Energy: A Life Cycle Perspective Applied at a Local Scale

08-Nov-2016 | Neri, Esmeralda ; Cespi, Daniele ; Setti, Leonardo ; Gombi, Erica ; Bernardi, Elena ; Vassura, Ivano ; Passarini, Fa ..., Energies, 2016

Italy, like every country member of the European Union (EU), will have to achieve the objectives required by the Energy Roadmap 2050. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the environmental impacts of residue recovery arising from the management of public and private green feedstocks, activity ...


Energies, Vol. 9, Pages 850: Hydrogen Production from Sea Wave for Alternative Energy Vehicles for Public Transport in Trapani (Italy)

21-Oct-2016 | Franzitta, Vincenzo ; Curto, Domenico ; Rao, Davide ; Viola, Alessia, Energies, 2016

The coupling of renewable energy and hydrogen technologies represents in the mid-term a very interesting way to match the tasks of increasing the reliable exploitation of wind and sea wave energy and introducing clean technologies in the transportation sector. This paper presents two different ...


Bioscrubber treatment of exhaust air from intensive pig production: Case study in northern Germany at mild climate condition

17-Oct-2016 | Fang Liu, Claudia Fiencke, Jianbin Guo, Robert Rieth, Carsten Cuhls, Renjie Dong, Eva‐Maria Pfeiffer, Engineering in Life Sciences, 2016

Treatment by field‐scale bioscrubber of exhaust air, including ammonia (NH3) and the greenhouse gases methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), and carbon dioxide (CO2), from 13 intensive pig production houses located in northern Germany were investigated in 2013 and 2015. NH3 removal efficiencies ...
