Farm Manure Boosts Greenhouse Gas Emissions – Even in Winter

University of Vermont

Researchers have shown, for the first time, that manure used to fertilize croplands in spring and summer can dramatically increase greenhouse gas emissions in winter. While it’s known that farmers’ decisions to add nutrients to their fields affects greenhouse gas emissions during the growing season, the study is the first to show that these choices have long-lasting effects, especially as winters warm and soils thaw more frequently.

From toilet to brickyard: Recycling biosolids to make sustainable bricks

Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) University

How can you recycle the world's stockpiles of treated sewage sludge and boost sustainability in the construction industry, all at the same time? Turn those biosolids into bricks. Biosolids are a by-product of the wastewater treatment process that can be used as fertiliser, in land rehabilitation or as a construction material.

Termites could power a 'clean coal' revolution

University of Delaware

Researchers have found that when termite-gut microbes eat coal, they are converting it into methane, the chief ingredient in natural gas. This discovery could lead to the transformation of a big polluting chunk of the global energy supply into cleaner energy for the world.
