Climate change could cost India 2.8 per cent of GDP, and lower living standards of nearly half of its population by 2050, as average annual temperatures are expected to rise by 1-2 per cent over three decades, warns this new report released by the World Bank

A significant amount of the final energy demand of the manufacturing industry is in providing heating and cooling to processes and buildings. Renewable heating and cooling (RHC) technologies are one way to reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with the generation of this heating and cooling demand.

A new Chatham House report argues that significant changes in how cement and concrete are produced and used are urgently needed if we are to achieve deep cuts in emissions in line with the Paris Agreement on climate change.

Reusing plastic and metal could help keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius and allow the EU to go emission free by 2050, according to new research on the burgeoning circular economy.

The time has come to get serious about decarbonising the emission-intensive materials sector. The production of basic materials (cement, iron and steel, paper and board, aluminium and chemicals and petrochemicals) accounted for around 25% of global CO2 emissions in 2014 (Figure 1).

The rise of renewable sources of energy and their gallant victories over fossil fuels — particularly coal — is now legendary.

The cement sector is the third-largest industrial energy consumer and the second-largest industrial CO2 emitter globally.

China met its 2020 carbon intensity target three years ahead of schedule last year, the official Xinhua news agency reported on Tuesday, citing the country's top climate official Xie Zhenhua.

Global rating agency Moody's today said that Indian steel industry is yet to introduce more stringent emission regulations, and an increase in coal usage poses a serious limitation to the potential
