Unless we stop global warming, future generations will have to grow in an environment where it will be much more difficult to live.
For the Earth
We are causing changes, the anthropocene, which are modifying very quickly what the evolution has taken millions of years to model.
For the other species
We are not alone, we share Planet with all other species. Our intelligence forces us to respect them.
Nonprofit organization engineering projects to fight against global warming, climate change, pollution and the other harmful effects that our actions cause to the Earth's health and to the species that live on it.
Development and implementation of tools and solutions to mitigate and revert the negative consecuences that human activity generates to the Earth and its species.
Based on knowledge, transform the current situation into an opportunity to evolve society, creating technical solutions that generate benefits to be reverted back to our society and to the Planet.
Vision and Values
Greennova Foundation acts according to these values: Honesty, Humility, Integrity, Cooperation, Sustainability, Innovation, Responsibility and Coherence, with the will to become a worldwide leading player.
We thank our sponsors and private donors for their help
We also thank our public and private collaborators for their support
Greennova Foundation collaborates with universities and research centers in the development of its foundational purpose.
CAPTACO2 project, in collaboration with Rovira i Virgily University - Eurecat, consists on the design and industrialization of an atmospheric carbon dioxide capturing device in which CO2 gets trapped as a salt after going through a special membrane.
The project is leaded by doctoral candidate Anna Mas, who explains it in this documentary produced by CGTN America:
GRAFECO2 project, developed in collaboration with University of Barcelona - Faculty of Chemistry, investigates different ways MOF+graphene structures can be used to capture atmospheric CO2. These structures work as sponges that capture carbon dioxide.
The project is leaded by doctoral candidate Elizabeth Martínez, who explains it in this documentary produced by CGTN America:
Pollution creates important health problems, even affecting child cognitive development. POLUSTOP project, in collaboration with Rovira i Virgily University - Eurecat, consists on the design and industrialization of a mobile pollution capturing device which filters the air, collecting its harmful components and particles on different membranes.
Glacier melting reduces the albedo effect; the sun's incident rays are less reflected and so heat up more. We have to increase our cities reflectivity.
Capturing CO2 and storing it doesn't seem as good as reusing it transformed into a useful product.
Synthetic palm oil
Synthetic palm oil would save the destruction of the habitat that still remains for orangutans and other species.
Our activity needs lots of energy, a part of which is lost as heat. What if we could take advantage of it somehow?
Plastic cleaning and reuse
Our environment is full of fragments of different types of plastic, polluting and damaging the rest of the living beings. We have to remove them.

Why must we do something?
Human activity has caused, in three centuries only, effects comparable to those of other geological periods, which lasted thousands of years. These effects change the environment so quickly that adaptation of life through evolution is very difficult. If we do not remedy it, we will cause a massive extinction that will affect us as human beings.
WE MUST REMOVE CARBON DIOXIDE FROM THE ATMOSPHERE
As the IPCC argues, to reduce Earth's temperature the greenhouse effect must be weakened, thus greenhouse effect gases must be removed.
Video - Why must we remove CO2 from the atmosphere?
We have been burning coal, gas and oil during 150 years, emitting CO2. Apart from reducing we must clean. No time to wait.
Atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) increase
During millions of years, plancton, plants and trees, before becoming oil, gas or coal, have absorbed CO2. Less forests means less CO2 absorption capacity and the combustion of fossil fuels returns to the atmosphere the CO2 that had previously been absorbed.
Last measured value at Maula Loa
Earth's temperature increase
Greenhouse gases (GHG) such as CO2 retain the infrared radiation emitted by our planet. Thus the higher the GHG quantity, the higher the Earth's temperature. This temperature rise is already changing the climate, jeopardizing the conditions in which we have lived during many years.
Each year of the period 1977-2017 was warmer than the 20th century temperature average.
