  • Chances for Bio-LNG

    Abstract An increasing effort is put into the utilization of organic waste streams in anaerobic digesters, producing useful products such as fertilizers and biogas. It becomes increasingly attractive to upgrade biogas to natural gas quality and consequently liquefy the gas to Bio-LNG. DMT Environmental Technology has been developing biogas treatment plants for over 25 years, closely ...

  • Biogas upgrading: Membrane separation takes over

    Abstract Due to governmental incentives and growing environmental awareness, it becomes increasingly attractive to upgrade biogas to natural gas quality and inject it into the natural gas grid or to use it as transport fuel. In this way, the biomethane can be utilized with the highest energy efficiency. Progressively, effort is being put into the utilization of organic waste streams in ...

  • What will it take to integrate renewables into the power grid? Ask a bicyclist.

    When it comes to fitting into the current system, bike commuters and electrons have a lot in common. There’s nothing quite like biking down clogged city streets, weaving in and out of traffic. For short distances, it’s faster than driving. It’s liberating. It’s fun. It also makes it painfully clear that most roads ...

  • Natural Gas Overlooked in Obama's Clean Power Plan

    NatGas: The Unnoticed Bridge to Achieving Obama's Clean Power Initiative Los Angeles, CA – (September 18, 2015) – It is now apparent that the Obama Administration’s Clean Power Plan aims to significantly reduce the amount of power generated by coal. It’s a game changer for utilities, mining companies and equipment suppliers. And, it’s ...

  • Reduction of food waste throughout the distribution chain

    ETHYLENE REMOVAL: Reduction of fruit and vegetable waste throughout the distribution chain Approximately one-third of the worldwide production of foods for human consumption is lost or squandered, equivalent to some 1,300 million tonnes each year.   This means that enormous quantities of resources allocated for food production ...

  • Utilizing available `coldness` from Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) regasification process for seawater desalination

    Abstract With the increasing use of natural gas, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is becoming more extensively used to ease the storage and transport of gas. The process of returning the natural gas to its gaseous state (regasification) prior to distribution to the gas pipeline absorbs large quantities of heat and therefore provides a readily available and inexpensive source of "coldness" at low ...

  • Knowing power grids and understanding complexity science

    Complex networks theory has been well established as a useful framework for studying and analysing structure, dynamics and evolution of many complex systems. Infrastructural and man–made systems like power grids, gas and water networks and the internet, have been also included in this network framework, albeit sometimes ignoring the huge historical body of knowledge surrounding them. Although ...
