  • Sustainable Biorefineries: An Important Research Topic

    In recent years, substantial steps into the transition towards a biobased economy have been taken in order to reduce the reliance on imported oil and the emission of greenhouse gases.  As far as Europe is concerned, Sweden, home to theEUBCE 2017 in Stockholm, has been very successful in decoupling GHG emissions from economic growth: from 2000 to 2012, ...

  • Do You Need a Microfiltration or Ultrafiltration Membrane System for Your Plant?

    Determining whether or not an industrial plant needs a microfiltration (MF) and/or ultrafiltration (UF) membrane system isn’t always as straightforward as it seems. While these systems are not essential for every industrial process, when thoughtfully implemented within an intake, process, or waste stream, they can go a long way in improving a facility’s efficiency and/or cutting ...

  • The Clean Energy Voyage

    The United Nations Climate Convention meeting in Warsaw, Poland, comes with less than two years to go for governments to deliver on their promise of a universal new agreement by 2015 - this is the time for ambition rather than caution to define the international climate negotiations. We have in some ways been here before: the Copenhagen UN climate conference was also scheduled to deliver a ...

  • Efficient Wastewater cleaning for Insulin Production

    Insulin production using biotechnology is now a standard procedure, but it leads to a high level of contaminated wastewater due to tensides which are difficult to break down. A solution provided by EnviroChemie shows how production wastewater output with varying levels of contamination and toxicity can be cleaned efficiently. It combines aerobic and anaerobic steps as well as a low-temperature ...

  • Clean energy technologies will create waste

    The birth of mitigating our dependency on oil and coal is here. We are rapidly developing energy saving and renewable-energy solutions that are about to transform our lives for the better, bringing a new era of limiting our dependency on fossil fuel, and creating less wastes when generating electricity. But inevitably through this period we will create other wastes, some hazardous. These changes ...

  • Has the clean energy economy arrived?

    We’ve seen many forecasts that show the clean energy industry boosting future US job growth. But a Pew Charitable Trust study indicates that green job creation isn’t just a thing of the future; it’s been emerging for several years.From 1998 and 2007, clean energy jobs increased by 9.1%, while total jobs grew by only 3.7% nationally, according to “The Clean Energy Economy.” ...

  • Overcoming the dirty secret of clean energy

    A dirty secret of clean energy is that being green can be an expensive pursuit. The cost of solar panels and hybrid cars is declining, but they remain too expensive for many people. As a result, the green energy movement is often viewed as an upper-income trend in the United States.But a recent survey indicates energy efficiency may be a more egalitarian product.The intent of “The 2008 Energy ...

  • Ocean Thermal Energy and Water Production

    Introduction The scarcity of potable water is a growing problem worldwide, particularly in arid regions and among developing countries. Compounding this problem is the increasing contamination of freshwater sources, which comprise only about 2.5% of all water on Earth. Of this small portion, only 0.5% of the total fresh water available is found in easily accessible sources such as ...

  • Clean energy: How much hot air?

    NewScientist’s January 28 issue is likely to unsettle clean energy advocates – but it is worth the read. The cover article, “Power paradox: Clean might not be green forever,” posits that even renewable energy can warm the planet, and eventually change ...

  • It’s time to invest in clean energy in Africa

    Private-sector investment in electricity is sitting on the sidelines in Africa. Here’s how we can change that. The math for Africa’s clean energy future is adding up. Solar lamps are spreading like fireflies across Ghana. A first-of-its-kind solar farm in Rwanda is providing electricity for 15,000 rural homes. Utility-scale solar and wind projects are being built in ...
