Everyone can contribute to climate action
Achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement and related sustainability initiatives will require halving of global greenhouse gas emissions each decade from now on through to 2050, when net zero emissions should be achieved. The recent article by the assistant Professor Avit K. Bhowmik from Risk and Environmental Studies, in Environmental Research Letters shows how everyone on this planet can effectively contribute to climate action.
Faster and Greener Purification Process with Carbon Dioxide
In order for pharmaceuticals to be safe, they must be clean of pollutants. Carbon dioxide can be used to make the purification process more environmentally friendly, which may seem paradoxical since carbon dioxide is usually associated with a negative climate impact. However, if carbon dioxide is recovered from other existing processes and if the use of environmentally hazardous organic solvents is reduced, large gains can be made both economically and environmentally.
