H2O symbol splashing into real water

H2O symbol splashing into real water

The chemical symbol for water, H2O splashing into genuine water. The blue characters and the water droplets make this image quite a wet concept.

Carbon Capture and Storage concept

Carbon Capture and Storage concept

This carbon capture and storage (or carbon capture and sequestration) concept photo shows the abbreviation CCS on a leaf of a green plant. With CCS large volumes of carbon dioxide (CO2) are stored underground to avoid the emission of this greenhouse gas to the atmosphere.

In nature carbon capture and storage is provided by plants and trees: they take CO2 from the air in order to grow! This way carbon dioxide is stored in their leaves and other parts of the plant

Solar cells are made of silicon

Solar cells are made of silicon

Solar panels are used to generate sustainable energy (electricity). The panels consist of multiple solar cells which are made of silicon. Silicon on its turn, is made out of silicate minerals or silica containing sand. In this conceptual image a lump of silicon is placed on top of a stack of solar cells.

Carbon footprint emitting CO2

Carbon footprint emitting CO2

Our carbon footprint is defined as the impact of our lifestyle on the environment by emitting greenhouse gasses like carbon dioxide (CO2). The size of this metaphorical footprint is determined by the amount of carbon dioxide that is emitted by burning fossil fuels. This concept shows an image of a genuine carbon footprint made of burning wood.

 

Hydrogen symbol H2 surrounded by bubbles

Hydrogen symbol H2 surrounded by bubbles

H2 is the chemical symbol for hydrogen. This gas can be made by splitting water into oxygen en hydrogen using (sustainable) energy. This way energy can be stored as hydrogen that can be used elsewhere at another time. This conceptual image shows the blue characters H and 2, surrounded by bubbles to illustrate the fact that hydrogen is a gas.

Burning and smoking carbon dioxide symbol CO2

Burning and smoking carbon dioxide symbol CO2

Carbon dioxide is released when fossil fuels like oil, coal or natural gas are combusted. The chemical formula for carbon dioxide is CO2 and this gas is generally seen as one of the most important green house gases. In most sustainability discussions and environmental debates, the carbon dioxide formula is often used as THE symbol for the worldwide greenhouse effect.

In this conceptual photograph the chemical symbol for carbon dioxide, CO2, is captured burning while emitting genuine CO2...

Plastic soup photo concept

Plastic soup photo concept

The Pacific Trash Vortex of Great Pacific Garbage Patch is a marine pollution phenomenon that comprises large amounts of plastics floating around in the Pacific. This phenomenon is also called 'plastic soup'.This concept photo shows a bowl of 'tomato soup' with a spoon on a plastic placemat. If you look closely you can see that the soup actually consists of red and green plastic granules.

Water footprint concept photograph with real H2O

Water footprint concept photograph with real H2O

The water footprint of a company or individual is defined by the amount of freshwater that is used per year. This can also be calculated for any other entity like countries, cities or products and processes. In this concept photo a footprint made of water is showing the chemical formula of water, H2O.
