A global challenge
Three climate researchers talk about the latest report from Intergovernmental panel on climate change (IPCC). In English, French and Italian.
Researchers from Norwegian University of Science and Technology have been among the 830 researchers contributing to the latest report from Intergovernmental panel on climate change (IPCC). In the report from 13. April 2014 they concentrate on finding possible solutions.
Three of our contributing researchers talk about the challenges we face.
Edgar Hertwich in English, Thomas Gibon in French and Francesco Cherubini in Italian.
Professor, Department of Energy and Process Engineering, Industrial Ecology Programme.
Member of the International Resource Panel. Leader of the Working Group on the Environmental Impacts of Products and Materials. Contributor to the IPCC 5th assessment report as a lead author of the energy systems chapter. Further contributed to the Global Energy Assessment. Member of the editorial board of Environmental Science & Technology, the Journal of Industrial Ecology, and the Journal of Economic Structure.
PhD candidate, Department of Energy and Process Engineering, Industrial Ecology Programme.
Area of work: Method development for a better understanding of the side effects of climate change mitigation scenarios. Focus on the environmental assessment of energy-producing technologies (fossil and low-carbon).Tutoring & supervising master students. Occasional group management and report editing (mainly on UNEP International Resource Panel’s report on clean energy technologies).
Researcher, Department of Energy and Process Engineering, Industrial Ecology Programme.
A researcher at the Industrial Ecology Programme, Department of Energy and Process Engineering at NTNU since October 2009. His main current research interests are in the field of Life-cycle assessment (LCA) of biomass and bioenergy systems, climate impact of CO2 emissions from biomass combustion, climate implications of ecosystem disturbances for bioenergy and biomaterials, and analysis and process developments of biochemicals and biorefinery systems. He has contributed as an author to the WGIII of the 5th IPCC assessment report.
