The European court of auditors has warned that the EU has failed to halt the marine biodiversity loss
The program, Europe's marine protected areas (MPAs), was set up to prevent biodiversity loss, but the report says that there has been no meaningful signs of progress, as fishing is now really high (twice as the sustainable level).
Plus, a recent evaluation by the European Environment Agency found that fewer than 1% of European MPAs were fully protected by fishing bans.
firm called Walkers has adopted a technique that will reduce CO2 emissions
from its manufacturing process by 70%
It's a technology that will use CO2 captured from the fermentation of beer
in a brewery to then use it as a fertiliser together with potato waste.
The fertiliser is then spread on UK fields to feed the following year's potato crop.
This way the fertiliser is made without generating CO2, while usually fertiliser produces high CO2 emissions.
I think this system is simply genius, and to think it was developed by a startup of only 14 employees!
