Study points to lake methane as energy source of the future

What if lakes could help Switzerland and other countries reach sustainable energy targets? We are not talking about hydroelectric energy but about methane. 20% of worldwide methane emissions (a gas 25 times more harmful to the climate than CO2) are naturally produced by lakes.

Researchers at Universität Basel developed a concept to extract this gas more efficiently and use it to produce energy. Lake Kivu in central Africa is so far the only place where methane extraction works and supplies communities with green energy.

While it remains a costly operation, this method could work in Switzerland as the country “is practically made for methane extraction from lakes”.

Do you believe methane could help us reduce our dependence on fossil fuels?

Lakes, the source of 20% of global natural methane, could also be the source of much of the world’s energy, Swiss researchers say.

#EarthDay is an opportunity to celebrate the planet and act for environmental protection. Here are 4 ways Switzerland is striving to achieve its commitment to the planet:

Water conservation: Switzerland created regulations that protect surface and underground water from harmful effects due to pollution, ensuring access to clean water, sustainable use, and biodiversity protection.

Recycling: Switzerland continues to strive to become champion recyclers. Regulations impose companies to use a minimum of 75% of recycled material for plastic, aluminum, or glass containers. Along with sustainable resource management, strong legal provisions are leading Switzerland to some of the highest recycling numbers in the world.

Forest preservation: Switzerland’s regulations ensure that forests and woodlands cover a minimum of 30% of the countries landscape, thus preserving natural habitats for wildlife, protecting mountains valley from avalanches, and absorbing large amount of CO2 emissions.

Sustainable innovation: Switzerland is positioning itself as a key player in #sustainability. In partnership and coordination with EPFL or ETH Zürich, sustainable innovation through research and technology remains a top priority.

Share with us the ways you are taking steps to protect our planet.

Looks like we can look forward to a warm and beautiful summer in #Switzerland. 🌞

The event normally takes place in the large Sechseläutenplatz square in Zurich but in order to avoid crowds took place in a gorge in the central canton of Uri.

The traditional burning of the Böög snowman effigy bodes well for a warm, dry summer in Switzerland.

Did you know that #Swiss people love trains?

With more than 300 million passengers each year Switzerland has the densest rail network in Europe. Most of the territory is covered with mountains and therefore critical to find ways to connect people and regions. Thousands of bridges and tunnels have been built across the country including the 36-mile Gotthard base tunnel, which took 17 years to be completed.

An unusual operation took place in Jura l'original last week where horses were airlifted. The joint operation between the Swiss Air forces (Armée suisse) and Vetsuisse faculty of veterinary aimed to rapidly evacuate injured animals toward the closest veterinary infrastructure. It was considered a success and the flying horses were not injured during their 1 hour flying experience.
