Turning carbon from a waste into a resource
Using carbon dioxide for commercial applications that support emissions reductions and industry growth will be the focus of CSIRO’s upcoming Commoditisation of CO2 Roadmap.
Renewable fuels set to take off
Plants with large amounts of oil in their leaves and stems are paving the way for new feedstocks to produce renewable transport fuels.
Seeing green: low carbon steel and aluminium target reduced emissions
We are supporting the Australian Government’s Low Emissions Technology Statement to identify cleaner ways to manufacture steel and aluminium.
Diverse array of energy-storage technologies may be key to firming the grid
Australia has been described as a powerhouse of cheap renewable energy. However, when the sun doesn’t shine or the wind calms, the power-switch flicks off – a problem referred to as intermittency.
Geoengineering the ocean could help slow climate change
A new project led out of Germany is investigating how novel ocean negative emission technologies (NETs) might work to slow down the rate of climate change.
Cars after coronavirus: steering away from emissions
How can the transport sector and consumers embrace the positive impacts of the COVID-19 lockdown, and steer towards low-emissions technologies?
FarmPrint: a monitoring and benchmarking tool to help farmers reduce their emissions
Work is underway to help Australian farmers better understand their emissions via a new monitoring and benchmarking tool to help them make their farms more sustainable.
Hydrogen’s role in decarbonisation: ensuring a responsible transition
To decarbonise our energy systems, CSIRO is looking at the responsible innovation and social acceptance of hydrogen technologies. There are always challenges to the adoption of new technologies. Some of these challenges are technical or economic, but, for successful adoption, there also needs to be social awareness and acceptance.
