Annual MITEI awards support research on carbon removal, novel materials for energy storage, improved power system planning, and more.
The findings, based on a single electrochemical process, could help cut emissions from the hardest-to-decarbonize industries, such as steel and cement.
With few easy solutions to their climate problem, airlines rethink contrails
MIT researchers are discovering new ways to avoid contrails and minimize their impact on global warming. Florian Allroggen (Aeronautics and Astronautics) states that the exact impact of contrails compared to aviation’s total warming effect isn’t known for certain; regardless, “it’s a big contributor and we need to worry about it.”
