Most of the domestic and agro-waste in African cities end up in open dumps and natural water bodies thus causing severe environmental and health problems. These waste streams have resources such as nutrient and energy that can be valorized by transforming them into valuable products.

A government research indicates that agriculture contributed to 18 per cent of the total emissions of India in 2010, Lok Sabha was informed today.

CARBON DIOXIDE is the main greenhouse gas emitted by human activities. But it is not the only gas capable of causing great harm to people and the planet.

Annual review meeting of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) sponsored outreach project on “Estimation of Methane Emission under Different Feeding Systems and Development of Mitigati

Emissions from solid fuels used for cooking cause ~4 million premature deaths per year. Advanced solid-fuel cookstoves are a potential solution, but they should be assessed by appropriate performance indicators, including biological effects. The researchers evaluated two categories of solid-fuel cookstoves for eight pollutant and four mutagenicity emission factors, correlated the mutagenicity emission factors, and compared them to those of other combustion emissions.
