  • Mud used as `green` fuel

    Dependency on oil and coal could be coming to an end. Researchers from the Rovira i Virgili University (URV) have analysed the environmental and human health impacts of an alternative fuel that solves various problems simultaneously. This is the solid waste from the water treatment plants of large cities. The scientists have carried out the first study into this method at a cement plant in ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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” ...
