Insulation in buildings Insulation for concrete homes in Mexico (source: flickr/Concrete Forms)

Insulation refers to an energy savings measure, which provides resistance to heat flow. Naturally, heat flows from a warmer to a cooler space. By insulating a house, one can reduce the heat loss...

Irrigation © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

CO2 emissions can be reduced with effective irrigation by increasing yields and crop residues which can enhance carbon sequestration. (Smith et. al., 2008).

Liquefied Natural Gas in trucks and cars LNG semi-trailer

The use of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) in transport is a suitable option to power, large long distance trucks in areas where gas is transported as LNG because there are indigenous gas supplies and...

Livestock management © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Livestock are important sources of methane. The United States Environmental Protection Agency calculated that livestock, especially ruminants such as cattle and sheep, account for...

Livestock management: feed optimisation © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

The principle of nutrition regulation technology to reduce methane emissions is: to optimise the concentrate to forage ratio in diet by controlling the crude fiber content of the diet or the...

Livestock management: straw ammoniation and silage © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Straw ammoniation is a process by which low-value forage such as corn stalks, rice straw, wheat straw, and straw of other crops is ammoniated. Adding liquid ammonia, urea, or ammonium bicarbonate...

LPG and LNG for Household and Commercial Cooking © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

LNG consists mainly of methane, which has a boiling point of –164 0C and for liquefaction requires cryogenic insulated tanks at about atmospheric pressure. Recent practice has been...

Manure management practices © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Agricultural lands (lands used for agricultural production, consisting of cropland, managed grassland and permanent crops including agro-forestry and bio-energy crops) occupy about 40-...

Nutrient management: mycorrhiza © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Mycorrhiza assist plants in obtaining soil nutrients. Therefore, any resulting stimulations in plant growth provide additional plant residue, which in turn can lead to increased carbon storage in...

Nutrient management: nitrogenous fertilisers © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Efficient use of nitrogenous fertilisers can reduce N2O emissions from agricultural fields. In addition, by reducing the quantity of synthetic fertilisers required, improved management...
