Press Release: Observing the Arctic provides benefits beyond climate change insights

The societal benefits of Arctic observation far outweigh the investment required to conduct it, according to a new study from the JRC. Scientists assessed ten case studies to identify whether insights gained from monitoring the Arctic have a measurable impact on things like forest and fisheries management, or infrastructure adaptation.

Press Release: Safer Li-ion batteries by preventing thermal propagation

Electrical energy storage plays a crucial role in ensuring mobility and reliable energy supply in the future. Li-ion technology is considered as one of the solutions also for large scale applications (e.g.electrification of transport, smart grids). As we move from single cells to modules and packs, failure modes in Li-ion batteries become increasingly complex and their potential damage can be substantial and difficult to deal with. Failure modes due to thermal, mechanical, electrical abuse or cell-internal failure may develop into so-called thermal runaway which is accompanied by hazardous effects.

Press Release: Climate change: the human and economic outlook for Europeans

If warming rises more than 2°C above pre-industrial levels and no adequate adaptation measures are implemented, Europe is in danger of being exposed to more frequent and intense extreme weather conditions, which will also have significant economic impacts. This outlook is the result of a detailed assessment of the impact of climate change on Europe’s economy, society and environment made by the Joint Research Centre (JRC), the Commission’s science and knowledge hub.

Press Release: Drought worsens conflict-driven food security crisis in Yemen. Below-average summer crop production in Iraq and parts of central Asia

The October edition of the JRC’s Anomaly Hotspots of Agricultural Production (ASAP) assessment shows evidence of drought in western Yemen, which adds pressure to the already dire food security situation caused by conflict and food import blockage. Irrigation deficits and drought have also affected production in Iraq and in parts of Central Asia. In the dry corridor region in Central America, the second crop season is progressing well, whereas first-season production by small-scale farmers was affected by drought. In East, West and Central Africa, crop conditions are generally good, with the exception of flood- and conflict-hit areas in Nigeria and conflict areas in South Sudan.

Press Release: Drought affects subsistence farmers in Central America’s Dry Corridor. Nigeria hit by devastating floods.

The September edition of the JRC’s Anomaly Hotspots of Agricultural Production (ASAP) assessment shows evidence of reduced primera (May-June) production in Central America and reduced production of irrigated summer crops in the Middle-East. Irrigation deficits and drought have also affected crop production in Central and South Asia. Conditions are generally good in East, West and Central Africa, with the exception of heavy floods in Nigeria.

Press Release – JRC: How the European pulp and paper industry can achieve a 62% reduction in annual greenhouse gas emissions by 2050

Even with increased production, by 2050 the European pulp and paper industry can reduce its energy consumption by 14% and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 62% compared to 2015 levels.
