Concentrating Solar Power A solar collector assembly

Concentrating solar power (CSP) systems concentrate the energy from the sun for electricity production. This is done by heating a fluid which is then used to raise steam for a conventional...

Conservation tillage © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Conventional tillage is the traditional method of farming in which soil is prepared for planting by completely inverting it with a tractor-pulled plough, followed by subsequent additional tillage...

Cover crop technology © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Cover crops are fast growing crops such as winter rye and clovers that are planted between periods of regular crop cultivation. By covering the soil surface, they protect the soil from erosion,...

Covering manure storage facilities © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Manure coverage is the practice of covering the surface of manure with materials of certain thickness instead of the traditional method of piling up manure to be exposed to air. Manure coverage...

Crop varieties with enhanced carbon sequestration © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

This biological approach uses traditional plant breeding and newer biotechnological methods to select and tailor crop varieties with greater carbon sequestration capacity. Improvements in...

Household biogas digesters © ClimateTechWiki and respective owners

Biogas is a flammable gas produced by organic materials after it has been decomposed and fermented by anaerobic bacteria in tightly sealed environmental digesters under certain temperature,...

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).

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...
