ExxonMobil’s Plan to Capture Carbon

"One of the proven technologies available that could play a major role is carbon capture and storage, or CCS, the process of sequestering industrial emissions and safely storing them permanently underground. CCS also promises the potential to reduce carbon emissions significantly at a cost competitive to other solutions, especially for the manufacturing sector."

Smart Policy And Innovative Technologies, Like Advanced Recycling, Will Deliver On Climate And Sustainability Goals

Unlike traditional recycling, advanced recycling can handle contamination, impurities, mixed polymers, and low-quality, low-density plastics. By producing virgin-grade plastic feedstock, the process also avoids 'downcycling,' which decreases material quality over time. Conceptually, advanced recycling can be an infinite recycling process.

Why lithium-ion batteries are so important

David Roberts outlines the importance of lithium-ion batteries on Canary Media. “Cheap batteries could open up uses we haven’t even envisioned yet. What sorts of urban mobility vehicles, drones, planes or research outposts could we power? What kinds of ships or trains could we electrify? How could increasingly cheap, ubiquitous storage be coupled with increasingly...
