Greenhouse gas mitigation scenarios for major emitting countries

October 9, 2022

Greenhouse gas mitigation scenarios
Our findings suggest that emissions are on the way to reach pre-pandemic levels. Of the 25 countries analysed, emissions under current policies have increased from 36.3-36.8 GtCO2e in 2020 to 37.2- 38.1 GtCO2e in 2021; this translates to a rebound of 2.5-3.5% since the COVID-19-induced emissions dip observed in 2020. Recent estimates of global CO2 emissions suggest a rebound of between 4.2% and 6.5% in 2021 (Davis et al., 2022; Jackson et al., 2022)

A comparison of the life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions of European heavy-duty vehicles and fuels

whitePaper | February 5, 2023

Transport is the largest producer of greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the European Union (EU), contributing almost 30% to the total. Heavy-duty vehicles (HDVs), primarily commercial trucks and buses, are responsible for 26% of these emissions. Adoption of electric vehicles is expanding in the light-duty sector in Europe, but the heavy-duty sector relies almost entirely on internal combustion (diesel) powertrains; in 2021, zero emission HDVs represented only 1% of new HDV registrations in the EU.

Organic Photovoltaics – Truly Green Energy: “Ultra-Low Carbon Footprint”

whitePaper | March 30, 2020

The global warming effect is unequivocal, and solar energy will play a major role in the most important battle of the 21st century: enabling increased energy consumption while minimizing the impact on our environment. In order to achieve the climate protection targets as soon as possible, the environmental impacts must be quantified and should be effectively integrated into the competitive process. TÜV Rheinland (Germany) has certified the environmental impact of the solar film HeliaSol® to be below 16 kg CO2e/m² through a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). The result is an ultra-low carbon footprint ranging from 15 up to 3 g CO2e/kWh depending on the solar irradiation of a location.
