It means not only the supporting solutions like atmospheres engineering.
Climate engineering refers in our opinion to all technical measures with an influence to our climate system.
Our approach of atmospheric engineering is in one hand to contribute to the reduction of radiation in the atmosphere in order to directly influence the temperature and on the other hand to offer technical solutions for our plants, to REDUCE and CAPTURE CO2.
At the moment we are looking at several approaches, none of which have really convinced us.
There are biological, in principle reasonable but ineffective, chemical, costly and not necessarily environmentally sound, and physical, good approach but energy consuming.
One approach is to combine many possibilities, to above all to increase the capacity of such a plant.
Also the storage has not yet been clarified.
Geological or oceanic storage may involve risks.
Processing the captured CO2 and storing it in products would be better.
We are working on solutions.
We need to develop substances and technology that meet our requirements, which are above all environmentally friendly.
Ethical, legal, political, religious and economic aspects must be in harmony and so this R&D project is a cross-disciplinary project with high significance for present and future generations.
Pollution from household waste, industrial waste and plastic waste is increasing alarmingly from year to year.
Our human fingerprints are becoming more and more visible and palpable on a very ugly scale.
Global warming is coming, that is undeniably clear, from huge amounts of emitted greenhouse gases.
But our mountains of waste are also becoming an increasing problem!
Global warming leads to thawing permafrost soils.
We can no longer prevent the methane released in this process, because to do so we would have to reverse climate change, which we will no longer be able to do.
We can reduce our share of this threat to the planet.
We can reduce our consumption of foils through technological progress, thereby reducing harmful emissions and using existing solutions to our waste problems.
There is no way around modern waste incineration plants.
Huge quantities of waste are openly incinerated in some regions of the world, which in turn creates major environmental problems.
This would not have to be the case if there was a willingness to invest in modern incineration plants and if this was also based on personal initiative.
Modern incinerators with modern filter technology emit only very small quantities of hazardous substances, which are produced massively during open combustion and endanger nature, biodiversity and people.
Moreover, open combustion contributes significantly to global warming.
We can no longer stand idly by.
We have simplified and yet technologically upgraded plants to support projects that make modern waste incineration possible.
We promote local initiative through technology exchange.
We hope that together we will succeed in eliminating our global waste problem.
