  • Parsons, David J.; Chatterton, Julia C.; Clements-Croome, Derek; Elmualim, A.; Darby, Howard; Yearly, T.; Wilson, I.; Ishiyama, Edward (2011-07-31)
    The need for organisations to reduce their carbon footprint is now well accepted. HEFCE has recently published its policy (2010/01) requiring universities to set targets to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and targeting ...
  • Bajón, Fernández Y; Soares, Ana; Villa, Raffaella; Vale, P.; Cartmell, Elise (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam., 2014-05-01)
    The increasing concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere and the stringent greenhouse gases (GHG) reduction targets, require the development of CO2 sequestration technologies applicable for the waste and ...
  • Bajón Fernández, Yadira (Cranfield University, 2014-11)
    The increasing carbon footprint of the water and organic waste sectors has led to water utilities to voluntarily include carbon mitigation approaches within their strategic plans and to an increase in research aimed at ...
  • Bellamy, Patricia H.; Loveland, Peter J.; Bradley, R. Ian; Lark, R. Murray; Kirk, Guy J. D. (Nature Publishing Group, 2005-09-08)
    Most terrestrial carbon is held in soils, more than twice as much as in vegetation or the atmosphere 1 , and changes in soil carbon content can have a large effect on the global carbon budget. The possibility that climate ...
  • Upson, Matthew A. (Cranfield University, 2014-07)
    Planting trees on agricultural land either as farm woodlands or agroforestry (trees integrated with farming) is one option for reducing the level of atmospheric carbon dioxide. Trees store carbon as biomass, and may increase ...
