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.
