Marcelo E. Burton E. Edward J. Rykiel Jr. The major contributor to global warming is considered to be the high levels of greenhouse gas emissions, especially carbon dioxide CO 2 , caused by the burning of fossil fuel. Thus, to mitigate CO 2 emissions, renewable energy sources such as ethanol have been seen as a promising alternative to fossil fuel consumption.

Open Farm commits to bold Climate Strategy with science-based decarbonization goals, to reduce carbon footprint by With sustainability and transparency at its core, Open Farm is embarking on a progressive journey to greatly reduce the brand's carbon footprint by As we look to continuously improve on our own practices, we are excited to share our Climate Strategy. We are looking forward to sharing our progress with you as we embark on this path to reducing our carbon footprint. To establish the company's Climate Strategy, Open Farm has measured its emissions and is pledging to reduce its Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 42 per cent over the next decade, in line with the 1. Science-based targets require that emissions decrease in absolute terms even as the company grows, which is especially significant for a company like Open Farm, experiencing rapid growth. In addition to this pledge, Open Farm has begun building a framework to reduce Scope 3 greenhouse gas GHG emissions and will be implementing aggressive reduction targets over the course of the next year.
Carbon Dioxide Reduction Using Redox-Active Macrocyclic Catalysts
We report new insights into the electrochemical reduction of CO 2 on a metallic copper surface, enabled by the development of an experimental methodology with unprecedented sensitivity for the identification and quantification of CO 2 electroreduction products. This involves a custom electrochemical cell designed to maximize product concentrations coupled to gas chromatography and nuclear magnetic resonance for the identification and quantification of gas and liquid products, respectively. We studied copper across a range of potentials and observed a total of 16 different CO 2 reduction products, five of which are reported here for the first time, thus providing the most complete view of the reaction chemistry reported to date. Taking into account the chemical identities of the wide range of C 1 —C 3 products generated and the potential-dependence of their turnover frequencies, mechanistic information is deduced.

Each year, the world produces 40 billion tones of CO 2. We are a society addicted to fossil-fuels, and this is unlikely to change for the time being. Whilst carbon capture and geological storage is a suitable solution for large-scale carbon producers, a more versatile solution is needed for small and medium-scale applications.
