Antarctic ‘Zero Emissions’ station going online

Climate control, global warming and reducing harmful emissions are big topics of conversation and action these days.

In going through some of the latest articles and blogs on global warming, I came across this great Treehugger blog posted today: ” ‘Zero Emissions’ Antarctic Station Researchers Move In, Part I“.

It’s about the Antarctic station, Princess Elizabeth, which has just received its new occupants.  The station was built using a wide variety of energy-saving and emission-reducing technologies and was designed to be “as self-sufficient, energy-efficient and low-waste as possible”. 

It will have on-site wind turbines, solar panels, bioreactors and two filtration units.  The station itself is aiming to produce zero emissions.
