The Green Tech propaganda has now permeated almost all sectors of the world. With every passing year, technology is giving all it has to ensure that the consequences of man’s actions on Earth are reversed. This need has birthed the use of climate adaptation technologies to reduce the vulnerability of the ecosystem to the impacts of climate change.
Over time, the Middle East has proven itself to be a forebearer of climate adaptation technologies are no exception. The following sections analyze some core climate adaptation technologies that the Middle East can consider in its quest for sustainability.
What are the Examples of Climate Adaptation Technologies?
Indeed, the phrase ‘solar is the new oil’ rings true when one considers that some of the top crude oil-producing nations are in the Middle East. Certainly, this increases greenhouse gases and fossil burning. Hence, investment in solar tech presents a clean and effective Green Tech for the Middle East. Recent innovations have led to diverse solar techs, such as photovoltaics and advanced fibers, which readily absorb solar power into clothing, making them a viable energy source to recharge mobile gadgets. As an extra benefit, the price of solar electricity has dropped remarkably in the last decade, and their efficiency has increased also.
Although there have been several talks about biofertilizers, it is yet to possess the capacity for large-scale farming and use. No underestimating how much agricultural power and viability is needed in the Middle East. Luckily, there are effective Green Techs to supply such with little or no effect on the Earth’s ecosystem. The Middle East can look into investing in technologies to develop cohesive and useable biofertilizer material(s) for large-scale or commercial farmers. These measures will help to reduce the pressure on the Earth’s surface.
The daily carbon release through man activities is problematic and has spurred dastardly effects. Companies and countries alike are now looking to invest in carbon reduction technologies. A good example is Climate TRACE which monitors and analyzes carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels and power plants. It proceeds to create a publicly accessible database of real-time emissions to curb excess pollution and ensure compliance with environmental standards. CarbonChain is another technology that tracks the amount of carbon expended during heavy industry production and supply.
Plastic-Waste Reduction Technology
Undoubtedly, the world’s use of plastic is at an overarching high rate. Like every other responsible region, the Middle East can look into investing in petroleum-free plastics or recycling technology. Green Polyurethane plastic presents a new but working solution in the form of plastic made from waste or algae instead of petroleum.
Developing Green Tech takes a considerable amount of time and financial investment. However, if any region is up to the task, it is the Middle East. Countries in the Middle East have, time and time again, proven their dedication to sustainability and Earth’s protection. Undoubtedly, if serious investment in Green Tech is begun by the government now, the future can only get clearer and the Earth a better place to live.
