  • Singapore’s used-water superhighway

    One of the world’s largest and most innovative water treatment projects is the Changi water reclamation plant, opened in June by the Public Utilities Board, Singapore's national water agency. The plant at the heart of Singapore's massive deep tunnel sewerage system is powered in large part by ABB. Singapore's deep tunnel sewerage system won its second international award in less than 12 months ...

  • Wind power helps Texas town desalinate groundwater

    The first project in the United States to use wind power to desalinate drinking water for an inland municipality rather than a coastal town has just received a $500,000 grant from the Texas state Office of Rural Community Affairs, ORCA. The $1.075 million pilot project utilizing wind power to desalinate brackish groundwater in West Texas will be located in the small city of Seminole in Gaines ...

  • Earth’s own heat could provide vast amounts of clean electricity, and current MIT research could help make it feasible

    Grants recently awarded to MIT researchers by the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) could help to pave the way for a method of generating electricity that produces no greenhouse gas emissions, and that could become a major contributor to meeting the world’s energy needs. Most energy analysts agree that geothermal energy — tapping the heat of bedrock deep underground to generate electricity — has ...

  • Distant quakes can affect oil, gas fields

    The powerful earthquake that rocked Japan in 2011 set off tremors around a West Texas oil field, according to new research that suggests oil and gas drilling operations may make fault zones sensitive to shock waves from distant big quakes. It's long been known that large quakes can trigger minor jolts thousands of miles from the epicenter. Volcanically active spots like Yellowstone National Park ...

  • Renewable energy plan hinges on huge Utah caverns

    A proposal to export twice as much Wyoming wind power to Los Angeles as the amount of electricity generated by the Hoover Dam includes an engineering feat even more massive than that famous structure: Four chambers, each approaching the size of the Empire State Building, would be carved from an underground salt deposit to hold huge volumes of compressed air. The caverns in central Utah would ...

  • The race for alternative energy sources: new geothermal projects in Europe

    In the race to find alternative energy sources, geothermal energy is gaining favour. Geothermal energy is a continuous source of energy since the heat is trapped inside the earth, without depleting. This places geothermal energy above sporadic wind and solar energy, which tends to have a capacity factor of only 20-35%; geothermal capacity is more than 70%. Although global energy use from ...

  • Japan`s nuclear cleanup stymied by water woes

    More than three years into Japan's massive cleanup of the tsunami-damaged nuclear plant, only a tiny fraction of the workers are focused on the key tasks of dismantling the broken reactors and removing radioactive fuel rods. Instead, nearly all the workers are devoted to a single, enormously distracting problem: coping with the vast amount of water that becomes contaminated after it is pumped ...
