Press Release: Increased industrial symbiosis mitigates environmental impact of Germany’s wood-based bioeconomy

Researchers have devised a blueprint to integrate the efficient use of waste wood throughout a bioeconomy system — part of the economy that uses renewable biological resources from land and sea. This study assessed the environmental sustainability of three scenarios for increasing targeted levels of industrial symbiosis within the wood-based bioeconomy of central Germany, and found that, in most cases, the three alternative future bioeconomy networks outperformed the selected fossil-based reference systems, mitigating environmental impacts by 25 to 130%.

Press Release: Emissions and supply of fluorinated greenhouse gases in Europe

Fluorinated greenhouse gases reported under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change accounted for approximately 3 % of overall greenhouse gas emissions, expressed in tonnes CO2 equivalent, in the EU in 2017. There was a 3 % decline in fluorinated greenhouse emissions in the EU in 2015, the first time a decline had been observed in 15 years.

Event: Europe’s Energy Transition (Brussels, 24-25 October 2019)

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time and since energy production accounts for nearly 80% of EU greenhouse gas emissions, effective action on energy production and its use is essential to tackle climate change. This conference will focus on the climate action targets set by the EU to guarantee a transformation towards an energy-efficient and low-carbon economy.

The event will address the latest topics in energy regulation and provide environmental law practitioners with an analysis of recent legislation and ongoing policy developments at EU level in the field of European climate change and energy.
