Profile: How Porthos is decarbonizing industry in the Netherlands

Decarbonizing industry is particularly vital for countries like the Netherlands where a significant proportion of emissions come from industrial hubs. With the revision of the Trans-European Networks for Energy (TEN-E) Regulation firmly on the climate agenda, Mark Driessen from Porthos spoke with us about the importance of recognizing CO2 storage and transport modalities other than […]

CATF statement: D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Vacates Trump-era EPA Rule

Yesterday, the DC Circuit Court of Appeals threw out an eleventh-hour attempt by the Trump Administration to limit greenhouse gas emissions standards to power plants, ignoring all other industrial sources of CO2 that must be regulated under the Clean Air Act. The “midnight rule” was immediately challenged in Court by a number of states and […]

New Mexico needs to drop harmful exemptions from air pollution rules for oil and gas sites

Methane is a terribly harmful climate pollutant – pound for pound, it heats the climate over the next few decades more than eighty times more than carbon dioxide, and it’s currently responsible for about a quarter of the warming we are already experiencing, such as more severe droughts, heatwaves, and wildfires. The largest industrial methane […]

Accelerating Decarbonization with Zero-Carbon Fuels

Conventional fuels provide more than 80% of global end-use energy today – accounting for a significant piece of our global carbon emissions. Zero-carbon fuels like hydrogen (“H2”) and ammonia (“NH3”) are energy carriers that emit no carbon dioxide when consumed, and could replace conventional fuels in some parts of heavy transportation, industry, and power generation.
