  • Full-energy-chain greenhouse-gas emissions: a comparison between nuclear power, hydropower, solar power and wind power

    Fair comparison of the climate impacts from different energy sources can be made only by accounting for the emissions of all relevant greenhouse gases (GHGs) from the full energy chain (FENCH) of the energy sources. FENCH-GHG emission factors of most of the non-fossil fuel energies are lower than those of the fossil fuels that are in the range of 500-1200 g CO2/kW h(e). The improvement ...

  • The Power of the Moon

    The influence the moon has on life on earth is disputed. However, during an assignment in Southeast Asia, vibration experts from Sulzer were able to clearly confirm that the moon can even affect pumps. With its broad expertise, the Sulzer team was able to solve an unusual case of vibration. Southeast Asia is a key exporter of LNG (liquefied natural gas) to global markets, and it is ...
