Carbon footprint of the banana supply chain

Carbon footprint of the banana supply chain

The term “carbon footprint” is used to describe the quantity of greenhouse gases generated by an item or activity. It is expressed in carbon dioxide equivalent (amount of carbon dioxide that would have the same impact on climate change) and has been widely used over the past decade for environmental assessment. The calculation of a […]

What is a carbon footprint updated 2021

The term carbon footprint crops up a lot these days. What exactly does it actually mean? Carbon footprint is a horribly abused phrase, so it’s worth spelling out exactly what it means. When talking about climate change, footprint is a metaphor for the total impact that something has. And carbon is a shorthand for all […]

How do trees clean the air pollution

How do trees clean the air pollution

Trees clean the air pollution. And Trees absorb odors and pollutant gases (nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulfur dioxide and ozone) and filter particulates out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and bark. Trees remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and reduce the greenhouse gas effect, all while providing us with clean air to […]

How Trees Reduce Air Pollution

The biggest problem of human being is how to reduce air pollution. Trees absorb odors and pollutant gases (nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulfur dioxide and ozone) and filter particulates out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and bark. In the current climate, we’re regularly inundate from all sides about pollution, minimizing our ecological […]

What is the carbon footprint of a banana?

Despite bananas being an important product, only few carbon footprint analysis have been published, and the results have varied depending on the methodology and data: from 324g to 1 124kg CO2e/kg of bananas. The banana is a strong candidate for the ultimate low-carbon food. The carbon footprint of bananas:80g CO2e each480g CO2e per kilo Bananas […]
