High rates of methane emission have been recorded in Madrid, after GHGSat satellites reported landfill sites close to the city centre leaking the gas at a rate of c. 8,800 kgCH4/hr.
Originally noted on 20 August, the largest leak emitted methane at a rate of approximately 5,000kg per hour, with follow-up observations taken on 13 October demonstrating that greenhouse gases (GHGs) were still being released. Satellite imagery has suggested that a cloud of methane is to slowly drift over... More
Climate activist group Extinction Rebellion has joined a coalition calling on the Government to decarbonise the waste sector, highlighting ways in which the UK could reduce its reliance on energy-from-waste and meet its net-zero target of 2050.
Switching the UK’s diesel-powered refuse collection vehicles (RCVs) for electric trucks could reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 290,000 tonnes of CO2 each year, according to a new report from Eunomia Research and Consulting.
