Carbon tetrachloride (CTC) is a solvent and cleaning agent used widely across many industry segments. Its high solvency power, low cost and the fact that it is non-flammable made it popular in many cleaning applications.
Currently, all supermarket refrigeration systems in Southern Africa operate on fluorinated refrigerants with high ozone-depleting and/or global warming potentials. Modern, environmentally friendlier technology based on natural refrigerants is still completely unknown there and is seen with some concern. Most equipment owners, refrigeration engineers and service technicians have been reluctant to discuss these technologies due to potential safety issues.
Carbon dioxide emissions from anthropic activities have accumulated in the atmosphere in excess of 800 Gigatons since preindustrial times, and are continuously increasing. Among other strategies, CO2 capture and storage is one option to mitigate the emissions from large point sources. In addition, carbon dioxide extraction from ambient air is assessed to reduce the atmospheric concentration of CO2. Both direct and indirect (through photosynthesis) pathways are possible.
INDO-European Research Facilities for Studies on MARine Ecosystem and CLIMate in India (INDO-MARECLIM) was the first India-EU joint research initiative under the 7th Framework programme of EU co-ordinated by NERCI. The overall objective of INDO-MARECLIM was to use and extend the research infrastructure at Nansen Environmental Research Centre India (NERCI) in order to strengthen scientific cooperation within climate and marine scientific cooperation between scientists and students from India and Europe.

Since 1975, KRISS has been developing measurement standards and technologies as the national metrology institute of Korea. To cope with global climate change, KRISS supports many developing countries in the fields of gas analysis, thermometry and humidity sharing related standards. KRISS develops measurement and evaluation techniques for emission inventories of GHGs, monitoring techniques for background GHG mixing ratios, and the measurement technologies of key parameters in temperature and humidity.
KICT contributes to the development of the Korean construction industry, improves quality of life standards, furthers national economic growth and improves social welfare. KICT promotes original technology in the fields of land, infrastructure and construction.
Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) is a premier research institute that aims to improve the quality of life and to create a better future. KIST was established in 1966 as the first government-funded research institute in Korea. Since that, KIST has been on the forefront of national development. KIST's research in the field of environment and climate change focuses on clean energy and greening cities through technology.
