  • Making green mining less of an oxymoron

    New breakthrough science and cost reductions from the world of cleantech hold promise for making mining-one of the dirtiest, most inefficient industries in the world-more profitable, safer and cleaner. But which cleantech innovations aimed at reducing toxicity in mining, as well as the need for power and water, are best positioned to succeed? Which companies will win and which will lose? How can ...

  • Global and Regional Markets for Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS) Infrastructure and Equipment

    Portrayed in the past five years as a pipe dream, technological savior and prudent investment to complement existing energy infrastructure, carbon capture and sequestration (CCS; also known as carbon capture and storage) is projected by SBI Energy as a complementary, sometimes marginal, technology in the global effort towards carbon dioxide emissions reduction. Representing approximately $(U.S.) ...


  • Low Carbon Technology Commercialisation

    Speech by Gregory Barker, Minister of State, on the role of measurement in the acceleration of green technologies. Originally given at 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, London. This is a transcript of the speech, exactly as it was delivered. Good morning, it’s a real pleasure to be here today to talk about the opportunities and challenges in commercialising new low carbon ...

  • Sequestration and fuel reserves

    A technique for trapping the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide deep underground could at the same be used to release the last fraction of natural gas liquids from ailing reservoirs, thus offsetting some of the environmental impact of burning fossil fuels. So says a paper to be published in the peer-reviewed International Journal of Oil, Gas and Coal Technology. While so-called “fracking” ...

  • Trade-offs in ecosystem services in Central and Eastern Europe

    Researchers have developed a new approach for identifying regions that are most suitable for expanding ecosystem services. This could be used to help inform spatial planning decisions. By modelling ecosystem services’ opportunity costs in relation to agricultural revenue, the study provides a map of suitable areas of ecosystem service expansion in Eastern Europe. Understanding where ...

  • White House has coal country on the defensive

    After several years of taking a beating from the poor economy, new pollution rules and a flood of cheap natural gas, the coal industry was on the rebound this year as mining projects moved forward in the Western U.S. and demand for the fuel began to rise, especially in Asia. But almost overnight, coal is back on the defensive, scrambling to stave off a dark future amid President Barack Obama's ...
