Methane recovery

The urgent need to find solutions to climate change is spurring global action and cooperation to find ways to reduce greenhouse gases. Innovation and technology are key to tackling emissions.

This month we saw many great examples of public-private initiatives and international cooperation to advance climate-friendly technology in the transport, agriculture and municipal solid waste sectors. Tata Motors and MAHLE, with support from the Coalition, launched a collaborative project to create a mobile AC system using HFC alternatives. Our partners Canada and Chile announced a bilateral initiative to reduce methane emissions from landfills, and the International Cryosphere Climate Initiative shared insight into the use of open source satellite data to monitor black carbon emissions from open burning.

The Coalition also highlighted the importance of climate action in and for the agricultural sector at the 40th biennial FAO ministerial conference. Along with four other Coalition country Partners, Uruguay's Minister of Agriculture spoke to their climate action ambition, and their joint work with the Coalition, FAO and the Global Research Alliance (GRA).
