Fuel produced from sunlight, CO2 and water: an alternative for jet fuel?
Water and carbon dioxide (CO2) can be converted into ‘solar thermochemical fuel’ using energy from the sun and very high temperatures. A new study has analysed the production of this fuel and found that, under favourable future conditions, costs could be as little as €1.28 per litre, with close to zero life-cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Although suitable as a substitute for any hydrocarbon fuel, it could be particularly useful as a muchneeded alternative for energy-dense jet fuel. Modern...
Coal continues to give way to alternative fuels in powering University of Missouri campus
Tom Hellauer reports in The Missourian on the continuing trend toward wood and natural gas and away from coal as fuel for the University of Missouri (MU) Power Plant. The University of Missouri is a member of the International District Energy Association (IDEA). The MU Power Plant continues to throttle back on its use of coal in the face of stiffening environmental regulations and the availability of alternative fuels. Since the 2008 fiscal year, the amount of coal burned at the power plant to generate electricit...
