  • CTCN Regional Forum for NDEs of Asian Countries

    Type: 
    Event
    Date:
    Monday, September 2, 2019 - Tuesday, September 3, 2019 Asia/Bangkok
    Country:
    Thailand

    The new Technology Framework and the need for accelerated actions was the focus of the CTCN Asia Regional Forum held 2 to 3 September, 2019 in Bangkok Thailand.  As expressed by Mr. Ping Zhong, CTCN Advisory Board Member, ‘We see fires in the Amazon and Siberia, record breaking temperatures in Western Europe and the Arctic Circle. These facts demonstrate that climate change isn’t a threat, it’s a reality.’

  • CTCN/UN Environment Webinar. Trade in Environmentally Sound Technologies: Implications for Developing Countries

    Type: 
    Webinar
    Date and time:
    Thursday, August 29, 2019 - Thursday, August 29, 2019 Europe/Copenhagen

    The 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement provide impetus for development, innovation and trade of Environmentally Sound Technologies (ESTs), which can serve to address pollution and climate change while creating new economic opportunities, jobs and social benefits.

  • Energy supply from waste

    Type: 
    Technology
    Sectors:
    Objective:

    The most commonly used conversion methods – combustion of waste to produce heat or electricity; anaerobic digestion to produce methane for heat or power production etc. all are well-established and commercial technologies. A further set of conversion processes – for example, the production of liquid fuels from cellulosic materials by biological or thermochemical conversion processes, such as pyrolysis – are at earlier stages of commercialisation or still under development.

  • Geothermal electricity

    Type: 
    Technology
    Sectors:
    Objective:

    Geothermal electricity is electricity generated from geothermal energy. Inside the Earth's crust there are several reservoirs with hot water which can be used for heating buildings and/or production of electricity. The process causes relatively little CO2 emissions (from the steam), which could potentially be reinjected in the earth's crust through carbon capture and storage. Contrary to conventional geothermal power plants, present generation plants re-inject the condensated steam or hot water into the underground acquifer so that the reservoir capacity could remain intact.
