In December 2010, MJB&A completed a report on natural gas price volatility. This research report gleaned lessons from other markets to determine (1) whether increased exposure to natural gas prices, due to higher consumption, is likely to have a negative impact on the U.S. economy as compared to other regions of the world, and (2) how natural gas price volatility compares to volatility in other commodities and other natural gas-consuming regions of the world: the United States, Europe, and Asia, which account for one-third, one-fifth, and one-sixth of total global consumption. This report comes in the context of a series of reports that have been commissioned by the American Clean Skies Foundation in support of the Task Force for the National Coalition on Energy Policy (NCEP). Other reports have looked at (1) projections for future natural gas supply, (2) the history of price instability in the U.S., and (3) price hedging strategies employed by natural gas producers and electric power companies.

Cleaning the Air We Breathe, Coal Fired Power Plant - Case Study
By cleaning flue gases from coal power plants, the amount of environmentally hazardous emissions can be sharply reduced. Mist elimination from Munters is a critical part of this process. Munters has worked with leading power generating companies for decades and have through testing and follow up built an extensive parameter database and design tool to be able to adapt and optimize results based on customer conditions. Air Pollution in China In recent years, the demand for power in China has increased and as...
Case study - Novartis, Ireland
Novartis is one of the leading medical industries. They chose Envibat’s technology for cleaning flue gas at one of their production plants in Ireland. The project was completed in June 2011.
Africa’s green energy challenge: Mega projects, off-grid or somewhere in between?
South of the Sahara, getting electricity to 620 million people may require an all-of-the-above strategy. A 310-megawatt wind farm sprouting up in a remote, barren landscape near Lake Turkana in northern Kenya has the clean energy world buzzing — and for good reason. Africa’s largest wind farm, with 365 towering turbines, is creating more than 500 stable jobs in an impoverished area where goat herding is often the only work available. It will boost Kenya’s electric grid capacity by about 15...
Landfills have a huge greenhouse gas problem. Here’s what we can do about it.
We take out our trash and feel lighter and cleaner. But at the landfill, the food and yard waste that trash contains is decomposing and releasing methane, a greenhouse gas that’s 28 times more potent than carbon dioxide. Landfill gas also contributes to smog, worsening health problems like asthma. Globally, trash released nearly 800 million metric tons (882 million tons) of CO2 equivalent in 2010 — about 11 percent of all methane generated by humans. The United States had the highest total quantity...
