Recycling and Reducing Greenhouse Gases

Recycling and Emission Control

Recycling or upcycling existing materials is a good step towards reducing the amount of new materials that need to be manufactured or processed. greenhouse gas emissions produced from these processes are a large contributor to climate change, providing an opportunity for clean technology companies that deal with emissions reduction or recycling initiatives.

Greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) are increasing, accelerating climate change. Reduction in GHGs is critical to a sustainable future and companies in emerging cleantech sectors could provide the right solutions.

Electronic waste is becoming a larger problem, as is plastic pollution, and there is a need to create or improve effective recycling processes in areas around the world. As greenhouse gas emissions continue to increase, figuring out ways to control and reduce current emissions, while also ensuring we eliminate sources of future emissions, is a key step in mitigating the impacts of human activity on the environment and our climate. Emerging sectors like those of carbon capture and storage, hydrogen energy, and bio-engineering may help provide solutions for reduction in GHGs and better management of current levels.

Another interesting area that provides opportunity for clean technologies is that of improving plant or factory operations. Increasing efficiency in the industrial processes that produce GHGs can also help curb emission rates and improve plant or factory performance.
