GLOBAL EMISSION IN NUMBERS
SCALING UP ACTION
Aiming for net zero emissions
Fossil fuels account for one third while Agriculture account for two third. Our services focus on these markets. The CO2 Recycling Process is a separate Add-On Process to the existing Power Station Processes. Its Thermodynamic Energy requirements are miniscule compared with existing Power Station Costs. Therefore the Combined Processes save Current Costs of Electricity Production resulting in:
Lower Energy Costs
Clean Electricity and Energy
Dramatically reduced Fossil Fuel Use
Most Probably less Climate Change
No Pollution from CO2 Emissions, Sulphur & Nitrous Emissions
Carbon capture, use and storage
It is an integrated suite of technologies that has a proven 90% capture rate of the CO2 produced from the use of fossil fuels in electricity generation and industrial processes, preventing the CO2 from entering the atmosphere. Looking ahead, scope exists for future CCUS projects to have much improved capture rates, including zero-emissions from coal.LEARN MORE
Methane in Agriculture
Agriculture as a whole produces two-thirds of total emissions. Emissions from cattle and other ruminants are almost as large as those from the fossil fuel industry for methane. We also need to implement new ways of growing and eating food including cows. In South Africa, the agriculture sector’s contribution to GHG is 8% to 9%, with livestock contributing between 5,5% and 6%. Livestock agriculture is the world’s largest user of land resources. In South Africa, about 84% of the land surface area is available for farming, while 13% of that is suitable for arable land, and 71% is suitable only for extensive livestock farming .Learn More
PlantsPlants remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere in a process called carbon sequestration. The carbon dioxide is stored in biomass then released by the plant. In most cases, the amount released is less than the amount consumed by the plant. Farms, grasslands and forests are considered sources or sinks of carbon dioxide, depending on the practices on these lands
HEALTHCarbon dioxide is essential for the survival of animals. Oxygen is carried to body tissue during breathing and carbon dioxide is released. The gas protects the pH level of blood. Too much carbon dioxide, however, can kill animals. If carbon dioxide is confined, it can decrease the amount of oxygen reaching the body. Any increase or decrease to the amount of carbon dioxide reaching the body can lead to kidney failure or coma.
SOURCESCombustible fossil fuels such as coal, power plant gas, oil, vehicles and big industry are the largest source of carbon dioxide. The production is from various items such as iron, steel, cement, natural gas, solid waste combustion, lime, ammonia, limestone, cropland, soda ash, aluminum, petrochemical, titanium and phosphoric acid. Carbon dioxide accounts for nearly 85 percent of all emissions and is produced when natural gas, petroleum and coal are used.
What Others Say
Methane emissions refer to the portions of methane that are released into the atmosphere. Methane is the principal component of natural gas.It is useful in many ways, but it can also be harmful to the environment.
Sources of methane production include wetlands (22%); gas and coal mining or natural gas (19%); enteric fermentation in ruminants (16%); rice cultivation (12%); biomass burning (8%); land fills (6%); and animal waste (5%).
CEO @ COOLAPP
The global warming potential of methane is 23 times that of CO2 but its atmospheric lifetime is only 12 years, compared with 100 to 200 years for CO2. methane has a larger effect, the duration of the effect is much shorter
COO @ COOLAPP
If the soil health and nitrogen status are improved by cover crops and organic fertilisers, such as manure, rather than chemical fertiliser, less nitrous oxide will be released. On-farm emissions can also be reduced by using environmentally friendly energy sources such as solar or wind
CFO @ COOLAPP
Our Awesome Team
The most important GHGs and the contribution to total emissions are CO2 (49%), methane (18%) and nitrate gases (6%)
As cattle in South Africa are fattened in feedlots for about 110 days, they produce GHG for only 110 days before being slaughtered.
“For cattle on rangeland or pasture, it requires more than 200 days to finish to the same carcass classification because of the lower-quality feed compared to a feedlot diet
