  • Coal-Water Fuel as an ecological alternative to Heating Oil

    What is “coal-water fuel” and how it can helps? Coal-water fuel (CWSF or CWS or CWF) is a fuel which consists of fine dispersed coal particles, water and plasticizing agent. This type of fuel is widely used as an alternative to gas and black oil on different heat generating facilities. The operational economy is the main of advantages of the ...

  • Nevada power plant will be fueled by natural gas and solar, not coal

    U.S. Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and The Blackstone Group has announced that a proposed coal-fired power plant in southern Nevada will instead be powered by cleaner-burning natural gas. The 700 megawatt Toquop Generating Station, as the project is known, will also be accompanied by up to 100 MW of photovoltaic solar panels at a nearby site. The Toquop coal plant would have emitted more than 5 ...

  • FY 2008 Budget Cut $100 Million for Coal to Liquid Fuel Project

    HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania (ENS) - Pennsylvania Governor Edward Rendell is asking President George W. Bush to restore funding in the federal budget for development of the nation’s first plant designed to convert waste coal into zero-sulfur diesel fuel. A promised, $100 million, no-interest loan to help with construction and startup costs for the $800 million plant in Schuylkill ...

  • A garbage /septage cocktail for fuel

    Here’s a frothy brew you wouldn’t want to put a straw into: a not-so-tasty blend of sewage and garbage. As unappealing as it may seem together the two can cut greenhouse gases, help cleanup water supplies and add a new source of green and endlessly renewable fuel, all with the help of a new patented invention by Viridis Waste Control: Septage Bioreactor Landfill (TM) technology.  Left on their ...

  • Food or fuel? The bioenergy dilemma

    The cost of grain-based staples–such as tortillas in Mexico, beef noodles in western China, and bread in the United States– has increased around the world. There are several reasons why prices have jumped, but there’s one getting a lot of attention: the global rush for bioenergy. Crops can be used as a food or fuel; both are important ecosystem services that nature provides to people. But as ...

  • Fuel cells for powering homes

    One of the applications that fuel cells may have is the supplying of homes with electrical power. When considering applications of this type that call for greater power, a research group in the UPV/EHU’s department of Mineralogy and Petrology has studied the use of one type of material, perovskites, for the design of these cells. Fuel cells are similar to batteries, but they differ from ...

  • Are emissions fueling Australian droughts?

    American scientists have just confirmed that parts of Australia are being slowly parched because of greenhouse gas emissions – which means that the long-term decline in rainfall over south and south-west Australia is a consequence of fossil fuel burning and depletion of the ozone layer by human activity. Such a finding is significant for two reasons. One remains contentious: it is one thing ...

  • 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 ...

  • Sequestration and fuel reserves

    A technique for trapping the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide deep underground could at the same be used to release the last fraction of natural gas liquids from ailing reservoirs, thus offsetting some of the environmental impact of burning fossil fuels. So says a paper to be published in the peer-reviewed International Journal of Oil, Gas and Coal Technology. While so-called “fracking” ...
