Green technologies 'are available but need to be encouraged'

Helping the environment will come from adopting a multitude of technologies, according to one expert.
According to Professor Paul Elkins, professor of energy and environment policy at King's College London, there are a number of changes that need to be made to reduce carbon emissions.
Speaking at meeting of the Royal Society, entitled Towards a Low Carbon Energy Future, he said industries needed to do more to address the fact that there are greener options available to them.
"The current economics which are being looked at on the supply side is this very famous argument that there's a whole range of technologies that could reduce carbon emissions," Professor Elkins added.
A report from the Press Association earlier this month outlined plans by Conservative Party leader David Cameron to improve green technologies in the UK.
Those looking to improve their eco-friendliness can start by recycling used mobile phones - as this can ensure they do not go to landfill sites.
