    Big EU ETS news coming out of the European Council and Parliament

    The EU emissions trading system, also known as EU ETS, is a cap and trade setup of emission allowances for the power generation sector and energy-intensive industry. As a tool in the tool box of emission reductions, think of it as the EU’s biggest hammer, covering about 40 % of the EU’s total CO2 emissions. […]

  • CO2 Emission Trends for Different Industry Segments

    CO2 Emission Trends for Different Industry Segments

    In Endrava, we’re passionate about greenhouse gas emissions. More specifically, cutting those emissions in the best way possible. With CaptureMap, we often get caught up in looking at sites or segments individually, but in this blog post we wanted to use the tool differently. Here follows an overview of emissions evolution, based on the 11 […]

  • Four reasons why we love and hate the E-PRTR database

    Four reasons why we love and hate the E-PRTR database

    CaptureMap is based on public data, that means that the facilities on the map measure or calculate their CO2 emissions, and report them to their national authorities who then publish the data openly. We pick the data up, and integrate it in our tool. Sounds easy, right? One of the main databases we use is […]

  • CCS Ready to Conquer the Ammonia Industry

    CCS Ready to Conquer the Ammonia Industry

    Ammonia is not typically discussed at the dinner tables around the world, but it should be: it’s a vital chemical for making fertilizer, enabling efficient food production for a growing world population. Ammonia’s importance is also linked to significant energy needs and large greenhouse gas emissions. In this article, we give a brief background on […]

  • Carbon capture can cut emissions in the cement industry

    Carbon capture can cut emissions in the cement industry

    The European cement industry has launched ambitious climate targets towards 2030 and 2050. This article from Endrava takes a closer look at the cement industry from an emissions perspective, highlighting the key importance of carbon capture and storage in required emission reductions. We then use our own tool called CaptureMap to get a better understanding […]

  • The CCS potential for Waste-to-Energy plants

    The CCS potential for Waste-to-Energy plants

    There is increasing interest in the potential for capturing CO2 from waste-to-energy (WtE) plants in Europe, and safely storing it. But how many of these plants are there in Europe, how much CO2 do they emit and how much could be captured?
