Plastic pollution is a global crisis that poses a severe threat to the environment, ecosystems, and human health. Despite increased efforts to reduce plastic consumption and improve recycling, a significant amount of plastic waste still ends up in landfills, oceans, and natural habitats. Plastic debris can take hundreds of years to degrade naturally, and in… Continue reading Which bacteria eat plastic?
Established brands like PepsiCo, Hershey, and Oreo use 3D Printing in applications like custom-shaped potato chips, chocolates, and cream patterns. Using 3D Printing, a technology also known as additive manufacturing, in food is a growing sector and is not only changing how food is produced, stored, and packaged, but also delivered. But the technology is not… Continue reading How is 3D printing changing the food industry?

NASA Satellite Technology In this Hotpot edition, Toilet paper, Why planting trees isn’t enough, And More, we featured an article about how satellites are… Continue reading What are the solutions for the plastic in the environment?
In the post The Benefits Of Direct Air Capture, we briefly described how Direct Air Capture could play a vital role in mitigating climate change. While DAC has great potential, making it a promising technology for the world, there are, however, several challenges to deploying DAC at the scale deemed necessary by climate models, including… Continue reading What are three obstacles to using direct air capture of carbon?
Here are the benefits of Direct Air Capture (DAC): The benefits of DAC Last note Overall, there are several benefits of Direct Air Capture and the technology has the potential to play an important role in reducing carbon emissions and mitigating climate change. However, it is important to note that DAC is still a relatively… Continue reading The benefits of Direct Air Capture
How much does direct air capture cost Direct Air Capture is currently categorized as “technology readiness level” 6 (on a scale of 1 to 9), meaning it’s still in the large-scale and prototype phase, not yet ready for full commercial deployment. But this also means there’s ample opportunity to improve performance and reduce costs through… Continue reading How much does direct air capture cost?
Carbon removal, sometimes referred to as “negative emissions”, is a strategy that’s increasingly used in climate policy to mitigate climate change. Advocates of this method say that CDR can counterbalance emissions that are technically difficult to eliminate, such as some agricultural and industrial emissions. As of 2023, CDR is estimated to remove around 2 gigatons… Continue reading Which process removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere?
