Canon Inc. Makes Carbon Disclosure Project's (CDP) 'A-List' in Two Categories

Thursday, December 17, 2020 - 8:30pm

Evaluations are based on information disclosed in response to questions sent to the companies regarding such topics as climate change and water security.

Key Points: 
  • Evaluations are based on information disclosed in response to questions sent to the companies regarding such topics as climate change and water security.
  • Under its Action for Green environmental vision, introduced in 2008, Canon aims to strike a beneficial balance between enriching lifestyles and protecting the Earth's environment.
  • Canon set a goal of annually reducing lifecycle CO2 emissions for each product by 3%.
  • Based on these programs and ongoing efforts, Canon has received high praise and been awarded a spot on the CDP's A-list for both of the above categories.

Waste Milk Could Be Used to Reduce Power Plant CO2 Emissions, Says Clarkson University Research

Monday, November 30, 2020 - 2:17pm

Potsdam, NY, Nov. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clarkson University research, which shows how surplus milk may be used to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) from fossilfuel based power plant emissions, is featured on the front cover of the November issue ofAdvanced Sustainable Systems.

Key Points: 
  • Potsdam, NY, Nov. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clarkson University research, which shows how surplus milk may be used to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) from fossilfuel based power plant emissions, is featured on the front cover of the November issue ofAdvanced Sustainable Systems.
  • Two major sources of greenhouse gases are CO2 emissions from fossil-based power plants and methane emissions from cattle.
  • Thearticle, "CO2 Capture: Dry and Wet CO2 Capture from MilkDerived Microporous Carbons with Tuned Hydrophobicity," explains that it is possible to greatly reduce power plant CO2 emissions by using surplus or waste milk from cows to create activated carbons, which will adsorb or scrub the CO2 from the output.
  • "Think of extremely dark roast holey coffee beans," says co-author University of Texas at Austin and former Clarkson Professor David Mitlin.
