This webinar covers issues faced by cities for both climate change mitigation and adaptation, particularly focusing on the technological interventions that cities can adopt to combat and build resilience to climate change.
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.
