  • Hiden’s HPR-40 System and Biofuels From Algae

    Algae-based biofuels such as biodiesel or bioethanol, have significant advantages over crop-based biofuels. Algae grow at a significantly faster rate than more complex plants, they have far greater yield per unit area and they can be grown in compact, closed systems. One further advantage is the short lifespan and hence a faster cycle of testing and research into suitable biofuel candidates. It ...

  • Carbon Dioxide Levels and Safety Considerations in Winemaking

    Although, at first sight, winemaking might appear to be one of the most idyllic of occupations, it is an industry with its own serious safety concerns. The fermentation process that produces the highly desirable end product, whether it be a serious earthy, rich, Cabernet Sauvignon or a sweet, slightly decadent, Moscato, also produces a lot of carbon dioxide. In the realm of 40 times the volume of ...

  • Germany lowers biogas formaldehyde emissions

    The renewable energy sector has grown enormously in Germany in recent years and there are now large numbers of plants producing energy from biogas/anaerobic digestion. The emissions from these plants are regulated, but the measurement of formaldehyde (a carcinogen) is being reduced as a result of a financial incentive system. However, the measurement of formaldehyde is challenging and in order to ...

  • Reservoirs: a neglected source of methane emissions

    Substantial amounts of the greenhouse gas methane are released not only from large tropical reservoirs but also from run-of-the-river reservoirs in Switzerland, especially in the summer, when water temperatures are higher. This was demonstrated by Eawag scientists at Lake Wohlen, near Bern – a finding which slightly tarnishes the reputation of hydropower as a climate-neutral way of ...
