Population growth has a severe impact on air pollution. Growing population and industry heavily rely on transportation. More vehicles are in use each year and the result is greater levels of harmful greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. Similarly, domestic, commercial and industrial energy needs are expanding. Gas and electricity grids currently rely almost entirely on fossil fuels which cause huge air pollution. For these reasons, the air quality we all breathe is rapidly deteriorating. As we well know, air pollution is the primary cause of global warming, so radical changes must be made in order to stop destroying our planet.
A Green Future
Thankfully, governments around the world have started to take action. They are actively exploring environmental solutions which can help reduce pollution. Suitable measures cover both energy generation and transportation fuels. This is why, we are seeing a boom in the development of renewable energy and biofuels, especially in Europe and North America. Electric cars, hydrogen fuel and other important technological advancements are also set to play a critical part in the future of transportation.
Our Environmental Solutions – An Effective Contribution
We are active in both renewable energy and biofuel production. A number of our environmental solutions for waste processing incorporate certain renewable technologies. Anaerobic digestion, for example, specifically focuses on processing the organic fraction of waste. It transforms the energy content of organics into biogas. By purifying (or upgrading) it, we subsequently produce biomethane. This valuable biofuel can directly replace natural gas in the national grid and is also used as transport fuel. Furthermore, we are working on innovative technologies for the production of other biofuels.
