DECARBONIZATION

Decarbonization, the process of reducing carbon emissions to mitigate climate change, is the key item on the collective agenda of nations to safeguard the planet. The world has come together to acknowledge that something must be done about global warming. And we are all taking small steps towards this goal. We have yet to see the true impact these changes will have on our planet. But we need to act now before it’s too late.

The transition to a low carbon economy is inevitable. The only question left is how fast the change will take place, and who will make it happen. We’ll explore the advantages of going green from an individual, community, and company perspective. This helps to understand what can help motivate businesses towards decarbonization.

Global leaders concur in pushing forward on a program of Decarbonization to manage the carbon cycle, reduce industrial emissions, reduce Carbon Dioxide emissions, and supply borate compound solutions that help manage harmful emission levels on the planet. Boron can play a part by reducing harmful levels of carbon through reduction of emissions, enabling clean power, helping secure the food supply chain, and providing nutrients in diets for healthy living.

Boron and Climate Risk

Climate change is real. The impact of the physical climate risk is already affecting the living population. Boron is a low-cost and sustainable solution to help control climate change effects. Climate researchers consider boron an essential ingredient in reducing global warming. It is helpful as a catalyst for creating one or more hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) with lower greenhouse gas emissions. It is lesser than current HFCs commonly present in air conditioners, refrigerators, and other cooling devices.

boron renewable energy
DECARBONIZATION

Boron Renewable Energy

Boron is an essential element of renewable energy. The use of other materials in the production process is reduced. Carbon emissions are decreased by using borates for insulation or fire-retardant purposes. Boron has many properties which make it a good candidate for this purpose. It plays a prominent role as we work to reduce our dependency on traditional methods like fossil fuels.

Rio Tinto Decarbonization

Rio Tinto announced a $7.5 billion plan to reduce carbon emissions to 50% by 2030 in October 2021. Rio Tinto stated that it aimed to reduce carbon emissions by half by 2020 as steel and iron ore producers push for compliance with international climate commitments. Rio pushed forward its 2020 target for a 15% reduction of emissions from 2018, five years earlier than it had previously planned.

Low Carbon Boron Future

Low Carbon Future with Boron

We live in a world where the environment is constantly going through changes. This is because we are running out of fossil fuels, and all it takes for our society to collapse is one more natural disaster. Therefore, the invention of new materials that facilitate the mission statement of a low carbon future is essential in today's day and age to decrease our dependence on fossil fuels.

Boron and Carbon Footprint

Boron carbon footprint - A major problem in the world today is climate change and it has been a long-debated topic. Some people are convinced that it is not happening, while others think the world is doomed to an uninhabitable fate. The truth is that climate change is happening and we must reduce its impact on our lives.  The Earth's temperature has been increasing over time, and this will have a major impact on our planet.

Boron – Industrial Minerals

Boron minerals are an important mineral in the Earth's crust; they come from a variety of geological structures, such as pegmatite and metamorphic rocks. The most common boron minerals that form on Earth include Tincal, Tincalconite, Colemanite, Kernite, Ulexite, Pandermite, Boracite, Hydroboraclite, Inderite, Ascharite, Datolite, Sassolite, Meyerhofferite, Inyoite, Probertite.

Boron, ESG and the Mining Industry

The ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) framework is growing in significance for mining companies, including those involved in boron extraction. ESG is a set of practices that mines have to comply with to ensure their future sustainability. It will become an integral part of every mining operation worldwide shortly. ESG compliance is difficult for some mines because it requires them to alter their production methods or management style. However, it is not only possible but necessary.

Boron in Energy Conservation

In response to energy conservation demands, energy conservation is a system has for some time been implemented in homes, as well as industrial and commercial sectors. When we talk about energy conservation, boron is the most efficient and naturally occurring chemical.  Energy consumption adversely affects the economy on all levels; high energy costs are an impediment to economic development for any country. A determined effort needs are taken by both private individuals & large businesses alike to reduce their input of "energy" into our global ecosystem - which includes many aspects including economic output (gross domestic product).
