A considerable reduction in carbon dioxide in the world's industrial and emerging economies is vital if global warming is to be counteracted. The problem can be solved by energy savings on the one hand and energy efficiency on the other. The German corporation Aqua Society has now developed a process which sustainably generates CO2-free electricity from waste heat at temperatures from 80 degrees Celsius, making a decisive contribution to achieving climate targets.
