Philipp Rutberg’s Plasma Technology can solve the garbage crisis in Russia

The problem of recycling and disposal of household waste is a pressing issue in Russia. According to Rosprirodnadzor, the volume of household waste in Russia is 70 million of tons. At the same time, only 5–7% is processed, the rest is either burned or buried in landfills. In the nearest future the burning of waste will be recognized as recycling, the relevant amendments to the current legislation are being prepared already for submission to the State Duma. At the same time, the ecological side of such measures is dangerous, traditional landfill operations lead to unsuitability of land areas and groundwater contamination. The result of burning solid waste is pollution of the atmosphere with toxic components, which poses a direct threat to the environment and human health. Philipp Rutberg, RAS academician, the 2011 Global Energy Prize laureate developed technologies for the disposal and use of waste without harmful emissions into the atmosphere.

Subsidies in technology to take out the ecosystem from crisis

While economic growth and urbanization are positive trends in the development of humankind, they also contribute to an increase in the world's population and exacerbate the shortage of three inextricably linked resources: energy, water and food. The issue of ensuring their availability, as well as security, requires a comprehensive approach, says Rae Kwon Chung, Chairman of the Global Energy Prize International Award Committee, member of the IPCC, awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007. The shift of subsidies towards green energy, sustainable agriculture and land use, as well as support for technological solutions in the field of production, storage and transfer of energy resources will not only answer this challenge, but will also have a positive impact on solving environmental problems. Such conclusion was made by the expert in the framework of the session “Energy, water, food: an ecosystem on the cusp”, held today at the 24th World Energy Congress in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Low - Carbon Future Depends on Integrated Actions

According to the International Energy Agency, carbon dioxide emissions on the planet grew in 2018 by 1.7 percent to 33.1 billion tons due to the increased demand for energy resources and extreme weather conditions. An increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration exacerbates the global climate crisis and complicates the realization of the ambitious goal of a number of states to achieve zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. According to Rodney Allam, the 2012 Global Energy Prize laureate, member of the Global Energy Prize International Award Committee, the transition to a low-carbon future is not so simple. This process requires an integrated approach, long-term planning and coherence. He presented his vision for the transition to this kind of future at the session ‘Deep Decarbonization: New Strategies for Zero Carbon Emissions’, which took place today, September 9th, as part of the 24th World Energy Congress (Abu Dhabi, UAE).
