  • Green transportation: need, technology and challenges

    Internal combustion (IC) engine based vehicles are the backbone of the modern transport sector. These vehicles use fossil fuels as a source of energy to propel it and emit toxic gases. These noxious gases harm the environment and causes human health problems. Hasty usage of fossil fuels results in rapid depletion of these resources and price inflation. These concerns encourage the modern society ...

  • On the right track

    High-speed train manufacturer, CAF, rely on world-class beamforming technology to reduce the noise generated by their trains – helping to make high-speed trains a more viable option for travellers and operators alike. Because of its relatively low levels of CO2 emissions, train travel is considered one of the ...

  • Lean Green Transportation Machines—Adopting Strategies for the Future

    The challenge of implementing greener transportation systems—ones that don’t rely on fossil fuels—includes the adoption of new technology, modifying infrastructure and changing human behavior. That may sound difficult, but it is happening now. For example, bike sharing programs are being instituted in many cities. The goal is to reduce short car trips within the city that lead ...

  • The potential of green gas in the Dutch transport sector

    In theory, green gas has the potential to become an attractive alternative for fossil fuels so as to contribute to the transport sector becoming more sustainable and environment–friendly. However, the large–scale implementation of green gas is hampered by many uncertainties. In this paper these uncertainties are assessed through on a series of SWOT analyses based on a study of the existing ...

  • Inventory of green house gases and other pollutants from the transport sector: Delhi

    Air pollution problems in Asia are increasing and air pollutants originating from urban area are recognized as increasing sources of pollution (Streets et al., 1999). According to World Bank and Asian Development Bank joint study of air pollution for 20 major Asian cities between 2000 and 2003 Delhi is the most polluted city of the Asia. ...

  • Green and growth, can we have both? Lessons from the transport sector

    Sometimes it is assumed that sustainability comes with a cost. However, the UK car manufacturing sector seems to have proved that this is not the case. Could this success be replicated in other sectors? Marc Height reports. The car manufacturing sector in the UK has been an underreported success story, both in terms of its economic achievements, and in its embrace of lower carbon technologies ...

  • Green Green Grass

    A few years ago the North Sea managed a twelve month period without any major shipping disasters. Good news for the environment you’d have thought. However, in the same period up to one hundred thousand tonnes of oil were estimated to have been released into the sea. Some of this can be put down to natural occurrence, but by far the major part is dispersed from aircraft and shipping fleets ...


  • Envision 2050: The Future of Transportation

    What will transportation be like in 2050? Will we all be stuck in one giant traffic jam? Flying to our appointments in personal airborne delivery systems? Teleporting ourselves and our stuff around? Or not going anywhere at all? In large part, the answers to these questions will depend on how we answer two other questions today: What would we like it to be like? And what would it ...

  • Green Building

    Project of the Month   Sonnenbaum choice of project for September is total green concept which focuses on sustainability for a manufacturing factory located in Klang. The green and sustainability concept involves creating a structure and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource efficient throughout a building life cycle, taking into a count all phases ...


  • Theory of nonequilibrium transient transport in nanostructures

    We present a brief review of time dependent quantum transport theory for analysing nanoelectronic devices. We focus on both theoretical and numerical techniques developed recently for calculating time-dependent current flowing through noninteracting phase-coherent conductors connected to external leads, in response to external time dependent bias voltages. For sharp step- and square-shaped ...

  • 4 Big ideas to revolutionize transportation

    Two leaders on urban development recently came together on the same stage: Dr. Jim Yong Kim and Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Kim, president of the World Bank, and Bloomberg, mayor of New York City, headlined a panel at the Transforming Transportation conference, an event co-organized by the World Bank and WRI’s EMBARQ ...

  • 3 Big opportunities to transform transportation

    The need for action on sustainable transport has never been more apparent than it is today. The world’s population is expected to reach a whopping 9.8 billion people by 2050, with about 70 percent of these people residing in cities. Meanwhile, greenhouse gas ...

  • Mitigation of green house gases emission and energy consumption for transport sector: a fuzzy–AHP approach

    The green house gas emission has sharply increased in the past several decades from transport sector. The policy options in transportation sector primarily focus on the reduction of green house gas emission through the reduction of underlying activity (i.e., travel). Several transportation sector policies have been proposed in the literature. In order to examine relative importance of these ...

  • Biofuel scenarios in a water perspective: The global blue and green water footprint of road transport in 2030

    Concerns over energy security and climate change stimulate developments towards renewable energy. Transport is expected to switch from fossil fuel use to the use of fuel mixtures with a larger fraction of biofuels, e.g. bio-ethanol and biodiesel. Growing biomass for biofuels requires water, a scarce resource. Existing scenarios on freshwater use usually consider changes in food and livestock ...

  • How important is green education in promoting green jobs?

    How important is green education in promoting green jobs? I doubt there is anything more important than education for those who have a curiosity of how the green economy can transform our current dilemma.Is it possible that what others are doing in other countries could work here in the United States? According to the European Energy Commission website , Energy is what drives the engine for ...


  • Walking the green carpet to work

    The use of private cars with low occupancy is increasingly predominant in workers' transport to industrial estates in Valles Occidental County, within the metropolitan area of Barcelona, Spain. This unsustainable trend is already on the political agenda. However, sound theoretical background and methodologies to assess sustainability in the field of transport to industrial estates are scarce. In ...

  • Where to find a green job?

    William Carlos Williams began one of his most famous poems: “So much depends upon a red wheel barrow.” Maybe if he were writing today he’d switch ‘red wheelbarrow’ to ‘green job.’The US is relying on green jobs to push forward economic recovery. Our political leaders promise they are on their way, spurred by $80 billion in stimulus money for efficiency and renewable energy.But what are green ...
