ASU research shows how to make plants produce more food, even in drought or salty soil. But there are challenges to getting this work off—or into—the ground.

Building on nature’s foundation

How can we make infrastructure safer and more dependable? ASU engineers and scientists are using natural systems as a guide.

NextPotential turns greenhouse gas into natural gas

An ASU student startup called NextPotential aims to change the energy game with its carbon recycling technology.

Capturing carbon

ASU researchers are exploring new technologies to capture carbon dioxide, reducing the amount in our atmosphere.

Carbon Q&A

What does carbon have to do with climate? And why should we care?

Carbon policy—Think globally, act locally

Why is it so difficult to enact policies that reduce carbon dioxide emissions? ASU researchers explain some of the challenges.

The breathing ocean

Susanne Neuer is a marine biologist at ASU who studies the ocean's role in mitigating the effects of climate change, and the microscopic organisms that make it possible for oceans to absorb excess atmospheric CO2.

Series: Carbon and climate change

ASU researchers are working on new approaches to addressing climate change related to the most abundant human-produced greenhouse gas--carbon dioxide.

Creating resilient cities: ASU UREx SRN

ASU is leading a team of 50 researchers and practitioners from 15 different institutions to help make urban infrastructure more resilient to extreme weather events.

Resilient cities: From fail-safe to safe-to-fail

ASU’s UREx Sustainability Research Network is exploring how extreme weather events affect urban infrastructure and how we can make cities more resilient.
