Salt River Project (SRP) has been awarded Climate Registered™ Platinum Status for the 2020 reporting year. The Climate Registry, a nonprofit organization, is North America’s largest voluntary registry for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. SRP earned this recognition, awarded on behalf of The Climate Registry, by setting and disclosing a public GHG reduction goal as well as a public base year, in addition to publicly reporting a third-party verified GHG emissions inventory for its operations. This data will enable SRP to track its climate initiatives and GHG reductions credibly over time.
Researchers at the University of Arizona have formed a startup with plans to use a metal-free electrolyte they’ve developed to make nontoxic batteries that can store large amounts of electricity. CarbeniumTec LLC was launched by a team from UArizona’s College of Science and College of Medicine-Tucson with the idea of addressing the need to develop more methods to store and deliver large amounts of electricity for long periods of time.
Sometimes science becomes too hot to handle. That’s what researchers at the University of Arizona found recently when they tried to test a new air pollution monitoring system around Tucson. The scientists set out to install new equipment and implement a standardized protocol for monitoring levels of NO2, NOx, PM-2.5 and PM-10, four common air pollutants, that is already being used in 16 European countries. By adopting the same method of air quality evaluation used in ongoing studies elsewhere, they hoped to be able to improve comparisons of Tucson’s air pollution with levels in other environments and to test the accuracy of data from existing instruments around Tucson that are operated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

KORE Power, Inc. and Zero Electric Vehicles, Inc. have signed a supply agreement that ensures the availability of KORE’s certified e-mobility battery modules through 2030 to be used in ZEV’s electric powertrain kits.
As climate risks from ongoing drought and rising urban heat continue to grow, Arizona will need to find innovative ways to significantly reduce CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. Many of the state’s electric utilities, industries and cities are planning actions to nearly eliminate their own emissions by 2050. But reaching carbon neutrality for all of Arizona’s economy will require greater effort.
Silicon Valley Bank on Monday said it plans to provide at least $5 billion by 2027 in loans, investments and other financing to support sustainability efforts.
