Removing CO2 from the atmosphere and the Desarc-Maresanus project

One year after the launch of the "Desarc-Maresanus" research project run by Politecnico di Milano and the Euro-Mediterranean Centre on Climate Change with the support of Amundi and the collaboration of CO2APPS, the main results are ready to be presented. "Desarc-Maresanus" studied an alkalinization process to simultaneously address two environmental problems of enormous concern: the increase of the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the…

New DTU research supports previous studies on global sea level rise

IMAGE: Using data from European satellites, 25-year-old Tadea Veng from DTU Space has demonstrated that the global sea level rise has accelerated over the past four decades. view more  Credit: Mikal Schlosser As a result of global warming, the world's oceans have risen by an average of around 3 mm a year since the early 1990s. But how much they have risen year on year has…
