Emails about Copenhagen

The green blog does not believe on waste so here are some of the emails I received about reports and activities concerning the Climate Change Summit in Copenhagen (before they magically disappear lol!).

  • The Global Climate Network released its report, “Low-Carbon Jobs in an Interconnected World“, stating that low-carbon policies has the potential to create 20 million jobs between now and 2020 in low-carbon energy in eight of the world’s leading economies including the United States, China, India, and the United Kingdom.
  • Enzyme producer Genencor and its parent company Danisco were at booth 62 at the Bright Green Expo in Forum Copenhagen on December 12-13 talking about their bio-based solutions. If you miss them there, you can always email them for further information.
  • Global Food Service Company Huhtamaki is serving 285,000 BioWare drinking cups made of the bioplastic Ingeo for the delegates at the Summit.
  • Several news from enzyme producer Novozymes at the Summit including a development deal on advanced biofuel with Indian biofuel technology company Praj; participating in a “Hopenhagen” car parade using waste-based biofuel; showcasing to journalists their Volvo limousines that run on straw-based biofuel; and showcasing at the Sustainable fashion industry conference its textile technology that reduces emissions of fabrics.
  • Analysts from Datamonitor share their opinions in this 12 Days of Copenhagen newsletter. I think you have to hum it like this…On the first day of Copenhagen, EU Nations brought to me…
  • A study by (S&T)² Consultants state that world biofuels production in 2009 has reduced global greenhouse gas emissions by 123.5 million tonnes representing an average reduction of 57% compared to the emissions that would have occurred from the production and use of equal quantities of petroleum fuels.
  • The Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) and EuropaBio is hosting on December 17 a technology showcase, panel session and dinner to discuss biotechnology as a tool that can help countries and a diverse number of industries reduce emissions of carbon and other pollutants. Too bad I can’t go…
  • Honeywell’s UOP and Solazyme have partnered to demonstrate an advanced biofuel derived from algae at the Copenhagen’s Transportation showcase. An algae-fueled vehicle is shuttling journalists to and from summit events. Again, too bad I’m not there : (
