Plagazi AB is proud to announce that the latest Plagazi application for a patent for the production of hydrogen has been approved by the European Patent Office – EPO.
This office, EPO, has also informed about a new way for database searches.
Database searches for climate change mitigation technologies have just become easier: A new classification scheme (called “Y02-Patents”) helps retrieve “green” inventions from millions of entries in the European Patent Office (EPO) patent database Espacenet.
In October 2014, the European Union committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40% by 2030 compared to 1990 levels. This represents a significant challenge, which can only be met through the development and deployment of new climate change mitigation technologies (CCMTs).
This EPO-UNEP study focuses on Europe, linking patent trends with relevant economic data on investment, trade and technology transfer in CCMTs. The report provides a clear and comprehensive picture of Europe’s contribution to CCMT development and dissemination.
It is hoped that this wealth of data, some of which is published here for the first time, can provide useful input for a constructive policy debate on technology.
