Plastics in the UK
This report tackles this data problem by mapping plastic flows through UK society, collating data from disparate sources on the production, use, disposal and recovery of plastics. With the resulting map of UK plastic flows, we can understand the latest trends in plastics use and identify opportunities for reducing the impacts of plastics in the future.
We have created an exergy calculator which returns values of chemical exergy for a wide range of materials. The database of exergy values, includes all known published literature values for substances and calculates additional values based on published compositions of more complex materials. Where values differ, a range is given, along with the specific referenced values, to allow the user to choose the most appropriate value.
Global GHG Emissions: from Fuel to Final Service.
Governments use national greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories to quantify the impact of mitigation options at the sectoral level and to scrutinize emissions reduction plans. The use of an integrated systems approach to global GHG emissions reveals the true impacts of human activity and provides a useful framework to critically assess plans for greenhouse gas mitigation. Working with the Leonardo Di Caprio foundation this project aimed to create an interactive Sankey diagram mapping global GHG emissions in 2014 from fuel to final service.
