Advancing Sustainable Steel Production, with Adam Rauwerdink

Throughout the past decade, many traditional industries have pushed forward their own revolutions in preparation for a sustainable future. Having fostered a new standard of climate awareness, policymakers and environmental advocates are now shifting their attention to conventional steel production and its air pollution. We spoke with Adam Rauwerdink, a leader in green steel development, to discuss exciting new technologies that use renewable energy and hydrogen to create a cleaner, more sustainable steel production, and the potential for this innovation to revitalize economies and create a healthier planet.

Tracking Emissions with Remote Sensing, with Gavin McCormick

Governments around the globe have committed to enacting policies that regulate the emission of air pollutants. Such regulation is made more difficult, however, when emissions cannot be accurately recorded and monitored. There is a need to create novel strategies to keep track of pollution from factories and facilities. We spoke to Gavin McCormick, the co-founder of the environmental tracking company Climate Trace, about the use of satellite imagery and real-time modeling as one of the major potential game-changers in the field.

Pedaling Towards A Sustainable Future, with Manuel de Araujo

The Earth’s carbon emission levels have been on the rise since the Industrial Revolution, showing no signs of slowing down especially as developing countries rise to prosperity. A series of new policies must be made to proactively alleviate the effects of climate change. We spoke to Mayor Manuel de Araujo of Quelimane, Mozambique, about his administration’s innovative vision of paving extensive bike lanes throughout the city as a means of encouraging sustainable transportation.

Plant-Based Meat with Ricardo San Martin

Ever wanted a juicy hamburger, but without the actual beef? A potential alternative is plant-based meat. Plant-based meats are — as the name implies — made from plants. It’s the restructuring and manufacturing of plants to feel and taste like an animal product. As more research and innovation emerges, plant-based meats may become both more popular and bio-friendly.
