  • Biofuels - case study

    As part of the Kyoto Protocol, the United Nations has called for the introduction of fuels obtained from biomass in order to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. The increasing scarcity of worldwide oil reserves associated with the increase in crude oil prices has created the necessity for an increased utilisation of alternative fuel sources. These biofuels will become a fundamental component ...

  • Environmental Effects of Acid Rain

    Air Pollution Creates Acid Rain Scientists have discovered that air pollution from the burning of fossil fuels is the major cause of acid rain. Acidic deposition, or acid rain as it is commonly known, occurs when emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) react in the atmosphere with water, oxygen, and oxidants to form various acidic compounds. This mixture forms a mild ...

  • MSW and Biosolids Become Feedstocks for Ethanol

    The first commercial facility designed to recover recyclables from municipal solid waste, and utilize the residuals with biosolids as feedstock for ethanol production, is moving forward in Middletown, New York.
