Posted on Friday, January 27th, 2017 by

Carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS) is an integrated suite of technologies that can capture up to 90% of the CO2 emissions produced from the use of fossil fuels in electricity generation and industrial processes, preventing the CO2 from entering the atmosphere. Capture Capture technologies allow the separation of CO2 from gases produced in electricity […]

Mark Shepard on Restoration Agriculture

Posted on Tuesday, October 4th, 2016 by

One of the world’s foremost authorities on restoration agriculture, Mark Shepard is happy that its popularity is growing but worries that its systemic nature is being misunderstood or “much degraded.” Restoration agriculture calls for the re-imagination of agriculture in which perennial systems replace annual plantings and harvests that expire in one season and leave nothing […]
