Federal Energy Minister Angus Taylor is on Tuesday expected to outline the Morrison government’s first Low Emissions Technology Statement, plotting Australia’s way forward on climate action. It’s likely to include “negative emissions” technologies, which remove carbon dioxide (CO₂) from the air.
South Australia is the best equipped jurisdiction in Australia to respond to climate change, with the state’s increasing reliance on solar and wind power likely to have the additional benefit of increasing jobs after the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a report by economist Ross Garnaut.
Toowoomba Regional Council is closer to adopting a homegrown waste-to-energy solution with a recommendation that it formalise a trial with local company Pyrocal.

A South Australian company that developed an acoustic listening device for monitoring the health of wind turbines has begun commercial production for the huge US market.
For 50 years hydrogen has been championed as a clean-burning gas that could help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The idea of a “hydrogen economy” is now enjoying a new wave of enthusiasm — but it is not a silver bullet.
There is global interest in the potential for a hydrogen economy, in part driven by a concern over climate change and the need to move away from fossil fuels.
